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?

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.

well i had a similar issue with 5th ended up being a busted bearing retaining clip, was the front cluster gear bearing. i eventually lost 5th gear all together. but thats my exp with the ax-15, ill know a bit more once i get working again and can rebuild my spare ax-15
