borispsu Speaking of the sound. It doesn't sound deep internally. It's more of the buzz you get when you screw up shifting with the clutch. The shifter vibrates. I think my clutch fluid level is good, but I will double check that as well. Could it be a clutch issue?

distortedtj no problem bud. Any more issues let us know.

borispsu Thanks for the advice. I'll give it a shot.

distortedtj Sounds like the 4th gear synchro is shot. But it's hard for people to diagnose sound over the internet.

Has the fluid ever been changed in the trans? If not I would start there.

Your transmission is the AX-15 speed. For fluid Redline MT 90 or Redline MTL works GREAT in your trans. Also this is a simple job you can do yourself...easier than changing motor oil. You can pick the Redline fluid up at or or some auto parts stores.

Here is a writeup for changing the transmission fluid for your transmission....

Shifting problem 93 Sahara

Hi. New to the forum and not really up to speed on mechanical issues. Wanted to throw a question for some guidance on how to proceed with a problem.

When I manually shift into to 4th gear I sometimes get a buzzing sound and it won't go in. Sometimes it shifts no problem. Often it happens the first time I go into 4th on a particular drive. The other gears are not a problem at this time.

Any thoughts on what the problem could be and how I should proceed?
