1991 Jeep Wrangler Stuck In Gear?
I have a 1991 Jeep Wrangler with a 5speed 6cylinder 4wd and I was driving home and went to shift from 5th to 4th gear and it got stuck in 4th and will not come out the shifter is hard and will not move any where? I have no idea about these transmissions or what type it is except it is a stock 1991 jeep wrangler. The Jeep does drive and move. I took the shifter off and looked down in the hole but all you see is a big rod and a square with a circle in it i assume the shifter goes through to shift. I dont see any plates or openings other then that to look inside at the linkages or anything. Any help anyone can give me or some information on the transmissions in these would help a ton. Also is there any other vehicles that have this transmission so I can goto the junk yard and maybe find one.

I'm assuming that the clutch is working? Disengages the engine when the peddle is pushed in?

I had this same problem 2 years ago and my synchros were done. I had to have my tranny rebuilt. Sucks, sorry.
