Garyk Could be the shifter is out of adjustment. If you have to hold it in reverse it may be hitting the floorpan.
I had broken motor mounts and the engine moved back about 1 inch or better. I could see where the shifter was hitting the floorpan.

Shifting Issues

Hey guys-

I have a 89 Wrangler with an AX-15 5 speed and I am experiencing some shifting issues:

1) I have to hold it in Reverse

2) Once in a while grinds a little if I quick shift

I am going to replace ALL fluids this weekend.

Any ideas?
