Newer jeep owner. I have a 92 YJ that I bought from someone. When I got it I knew nothing about trucks maintenance. After owning it for a month, I got familiar with my rear driveshaft(I had never ever seen that, so it scared me when the U-joint gave out on me, heh) had to replace the Transfer Case Housing unit a week later when the Driveshaft messed that up(cool pics of that), and a little eletronics when i had to install a License plate light. The jeep has a posilock system and is an automatic. I'm not mechanicaly handicaped, but I don't know much yet, and so I come here.
So I had the Jeep in 2h, ran into the need for 4 wheel, so I put it into 4L, easy day. I get back to paved road and I try to go back into 2h, and the stck won't budge. Now I am a complete newbie with my jeep, 4 wheeling and the posilock system. So wh
len it won't go back down to 2h, I messed with the Posilock knob, gave up, drove about 1/4 mile to a parking lot, got the jeep to 2h, was relieved but then it wouldn't go into drive! So now I can't drive it because, I think, it won't engage.
With my limited knowledge, I beleav it could either be floating between gears of 2-4 wheel drive, or the vaccuum tubes are messed up
Mine has been very close to 2h but not "in" and it would be in nuetral like that. I had to bump my lever ever so slightly forward to actually get it to engage. Slowly pull it back and forth across the 2h position while in nuetral and you might be able to feel it lock in the right spot. Then, drop 'er down into drive and try again and again until you get it. If you still cannot get it back into 2h, something more serious might be happening.
i find the easiest way to get in and out of lo range is idling and just BARELY moving. On my dodge sometimes if you dont hold your mouth just right you have to be in neutral with the engine turned off.

get up under your jeep and clean off the transfer case linkage and then spray it with pb blaster or wd 40 and see if that works.
if you still have problems loosen the linkage and adjust it so that it works.
i bet since you had the transfer case worked on they did not adjust it right.
I'll follow those instructions as soon as I get to my jeep. Someone told me it could be a gear box problem, but I know nothing about anyof that. On a similar note, where is the transfer case linkage? Just on the front of the transfer case?
Also, 'I' replaced the Transfer Case Housing Unit, so I probable didn't adjust it right... But all I did was put it on(between transfer case and the rear drive shaft), *but I'm not sure what I could have messed up or would need to adjust doing that... What you guys thinkin?
that would be the out put tail housing . that would not of required the removal of the linkage , but still clean all the linkage on both the trans and transfer and spray with the lube.
i bet that will do it.
I checked the Linkage and it was fine(according to me, and m friend who knows a bit more about cars). It's motion didn't seem to be limited in any way, but I'll go ahead and spray it down with some WD. I'll be working on it till Saturday, at which point it's time to give up and take her to a shop.
If the Linkage is fine, ,is it then in the transmission?
