Hi from Wisconsin!

Hello everyone! I have a 95 Wrangler YJ, 2.5L I4, AX5 Tranny. Baby has 250,000 miles on her!

I'd like to throw my problem at everyone and pick your experienced brains!

A few weeks ago, I had a rebuilt AX-5 tranny installed, along with a new clutch, new flywheel and a bleed-able clutch slave cylinder (was loosing clutch fluid from the little tank on the firewall behind the brake cylinder). I also had them drain the ATF from the transfer case and refill with fresh fluid. Been running fabulously for a few weeks now.

Today, I noticed the clutch sticking all the way down to the floor, and a slight shifting problem this morning. Today at lunch, I was pulling back into the parking lot and rounded a sharp corner to zip into a parking slot. I had it in first gear, with the clutch pushed in so I could "coast" into the spot.

As I got into the parking spot, with the clutch still pressed in, the transmission/whole jeep started shaking crazily and the engine started stalling out, plus I could NOT pull the gear shift from 1st down into neutral.

I shut off the engine and released the clutch. Then I could pull the gear shift down into neutral (Yes, without the clutch pushed in).

I restarted the Jeep, and it seems to shift in and out ok, and the shake was gone (for the moment).

I checked the little clutch fluid reservoir and it was full.

Any help would be tremendously appreciated!


btw... if it's better to post this in the YJ-specific forum, someone smack me up along the side of the head and I'll go re-post this there!

Welcome to the Forum

Closest thing that I could find to a "smack in the head" JK but it wouldn't be a bad idea to post it there. You will get more technical responses.
