Clutch or trans issue?
Hey guys - 2.5 5 speed. 1995. 179k. Not sure if the AX-5 is stock or if its been rebuilt before.

Driving the YJ today, shift out of gear into neutral rolling to a stop and it shudders, like its still IN gear, but it's in neutral.

New clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing, slave cylinder and master cylinder. Doing it consistently now, every time I come to a stop, no matter what gear I go into neutral from. Getting some grinding going 2nd to 3rd.

Should mention, depressing the clutch helps the weird "in gear" feeling, like something is sticking as you roll to a stop. If you don't press clutch, it won't stall but feels like it is going to but then unsticks right before you come to a stop at maybe 3-5 mph. Any idea?

I would start with a fluid change. Since you've replace all clutch components, put some 10w30 or Synchromesh and see what she does. If the oil that comes out is bronze/gold flakes in the oil then a rebuild might be near.

clutch/flywheel issue for sure.

Fluid was clean, done 200 miles ago. Good suggestion though!

I have the same problem but if I hold shifter just about in first gear it stops.Not sure what is wrong yet.

Ok let me know if you figure it out. Anyone else have this happen before?
