09-11-2009 07:33 PM
sman68 well it didnt seem like it dropped at all thats why i never diagnosed that as an issue, we actually hauled it down a the highway to my buds garage and it never moved, but that was the issue i bolted it right back on and its golden, nothing is broken but my pride lol. live and learn i guess. thanks guys im sure ill be back with more rudimentary crap to show my ignorance lol
09-10-2009 05:58 PM
AKWrangler Yeah I don't know if I would leave the skid plate off one hard jolt and you might leaving your tranny behind you some where.
09-10-2009 02:52 PM
350chevrolet well knowing that the plate is off, thats your problem. how far is that thing hanging down??? mine went WAY down when lowered the jack to see how far it would go.
09-10-2009 09:50 AM
mudslinger150 yeah let us know if by putting that skid back on you solved your problem.
09-10-2009 09:47 AM

Thats the one, if and when that is off you want to throw a jack under your tranny housing so it has some support.
09-10-2009 09:43 AM
mudslinger150 you might want to zip the plate back on, that may be ur issue
09-10-2009 09:43 AM
sman68 like the skid plate that covers the trans, big, black, deceivingly heavy.
09-10-2009 09:42 AM
sman68 ......yes
09-10-2009 09:25 AM
whiteyj No skid plate back on as in no rear transmission support???????
09-10-2009 09:14 AM
sman68 yes draining and filling is all i did, so its been checked and the tranny is fine, clutch wouldnt be an issue cuz it engages in third fourth and fifth. would not having the skid plate on cause and issue, i took it off and havent put it back on yet, and my tranny guys are thinking that could be it. ill let you know in a few if thats the issue but anyone had that be a fix lol....
09-05-2009 09:02 PM
bpowa it hard to believe that the syncros were held together by the fluid.

Was draining and fill all you did?


Did you try rocking the jeep back and fourth and trying it jam it in gear at the same time?
09-05-2009 08:36 PM
sublimemaze Reverse has no synchro, sounds like a clutch or linkage problem to me if its grinding into reverse with the clutch in. With the clutch in, the tranny should act exactly the same as it does with the engine turned off. If thats not the case, there is a problem with the clutch not dis engaging.

I would guess water intrusion. Transfer case and differentials?
09-05-2009 05:19 PM
sman68 yah come to find out the fluid had never been changed and it is the syncros those things are shot, pretty much just gonna be down for a bit. thanks for the help guys and wish me luck

nmdriver Similar happend to me with my Impala.

Dang "mine-runner" ran great until I did some preventative maintenance. Transmission gets hot and shifts hard. I am pulling a code on the diagnostics and it happened immediately after the tranny oil got changed.

Good thoughts 350....makes sense to me...

it makes perfect sense. syncros wore down, alot, creating the silt like fluid that came out of it. while the old fluid was in it it was acting as a friction multiplier because of the metal shavings in it and making the syncros work even tho they were almost completely shot. when the new fluid was put in it acted as a friction reducer thus rendering the worn syncros useless and blocking him out of the gears. i bet with enough force it would go into gear but the 1-2 shift while moving would have to be done with double clutching like an old non-synced trans. first and second are the two most commonly used gears and there syncros allways wear first, reverse is also fairly commonly used gear so i could see it wearing too. i wouldnt be supprised if water got in the trans at some point along the way and helped to kill the trans tho. spend some time behind the wheel of an old truck with a crash gearbox and you'll see that you dont really need syncros, but they sure do make life easier.

AKWrangler I just R n R my Tranny, I have a 97 with an ax-5, not sure what yours is, but it's an easy job, just takes some time to do it. It took me 2 and 1/2 days but I was taking my time. I know people say they can do it in a day and you probably could. I used this site as a guide, it's really good:

350chevrolet at least its a fairly simple and inexpensive job if you do it yourself.
09-01-2009 11:11 PM
sman68 yah thats what i was hoping didnt happen, i will find out for sure tomo but im pretty sure the syncros are shot as you stated.
09-01-2009 07:56 PM
350chevrolet if the fluid came out with as much metal in it as you described the syncros are gone. i bet what happened is that the old fluid was actually helping now that it was creating more friction than reducing. with the new good fluid the syncros just plain dont work anymore because they are too well lubed. replace it.
09-01-2009 04:06 PM
sman68 well i talked to a guy at aamco and they said it might be a pivot pin, or that something in the linkage is messed up which is random because i dont know what i could of moved but thats pretty much my only choosed
09-01-2009 03:07 PM
sman68 right under the skid plate its a 15/16th for both, ive done it before on my focus and its pretty much the same areas. wouldnt be a bolt i know the difference, the drain had the magnet that collects the random shavings so i know im right on what i drained
