jeep yj shifting issues
My jeep yj with a ax-15 was not shifting well at all, and i was begining to think of rebuilding my tranny to replace the syncro's, then today my my clutch stopped working completely and i could only shift by getting the right rpm's for each shift, i assumed my throwout bearing had sprung a leak cause the clutch would not release the flywheel, so i crawled underneith to check it out, and right away i noticed a loose belhousing bolt, so i looked at the rest and found three other bolts missing (there are only 4) so when i was pressing the clutch the tranny and engine where just being spread apart instead of the release fingers on the pressure plate being depressed releasing the clutch, so i replaced the three bolts and tightened them up, then drove the jeep, and now my jeep yj with 300000km on the original tranny shifts well and i am releaved that it was an easy repair
