This might give you a little more information regarding the transmission:
http://www.howstuffworks.com/search....d+transmission

pick through some of the articles on there and see if you can learn anything new. I'll be honest, Im a dude and a few years back I didn't know much about the inner workings of automobiles, went on howstuffworks and learned quite a bit.

hope this helps

Glenn91YJ It makes sense that your having problems with both those gears. 3rd and 4th are one syncro sleeve on the same shift fork. I doubt both syncro cones went out at the same time. Maybe a shift fork problem or maybe the syncro sleeve on that fork is cracked/shattered. Definitely sounds like a transmission problem.

Now that you guys mention it, the guy did say something about synchros.
What is 'double clutching'?
Are synchros something that is gonna cost an arm and a leg?

kik Chances are on a 93, due to the mileage, etc., it probably needs synchros. The clutch is probably fine since you are able to shift into other gears without a problem.

Transmission question. (newbie+girl=NEED HELP)

I just picked up my 93 jeep this past weeked and I have yet to take it to a mechanic (don't ask). The car has a brand new clutch and the former owner informed me that I had to "learn" how to shift into 3rd.

I've had many stick cars in my life so Im by no means new to gears, however I am having trouble shifting into 3rd and 4th. it makes the same sound as if I was trying to shift gears without the clutch and it pains me! I mentioned the new clutch because I am not sure if that might have something to do with it or could it be the transmission? No problems going into 1st, 2nd, 5th, or R. only 3rd and 4th.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks,
Jess
