Been having some minor transmission problems on my 91 YJ 4.0 AX15. Drained the oil and found lots of gold colored bits on top of the drain pan.
Symptoms that caused me to do some checking: 1. Grinds a bit going into 5th. 2. Downshifting, grinds going into 3rd and moderately into 2nd. 3. If rolling backward, clutch pushed in and in 1st, "bumping" of shifter and odd sound.
I've searched the forum and have determined that I will have some replacing to do. My question is how much. Should I go through the transmission completely as in overhaul (I've never done this)? Looking at videos and such, it seems my only recourse. Any advice is appreciated.
