    Recently had a rebuilt short block installed due to a main bearing blow-out. After getting the Jeep back, auto transmission shifter became inoperable and found the cable clip at the transmission had broken; no problem, just replaced the clip and away I go. Now, went to use 4W drive and shifter...

    My 2016 Jeep jku is seemingly dying when shifting. It doesn't do it every time, or even most of the time, but my last trip was the worst yet with it happening probably 20 times in about 30 miles. It will go to shift and just fall on its face, RPMs drop to zero and then after just a second it...

    While riding my 2005 TJ the other day, My dad tried shifting from 2nd to 3rd, which is normally not a problem, but this time it didn’t want to go into gear so he forced it. He said there was jerking and little bit of smoke. He pulled into a parking lot. We had it towed and I’m trying to diagnose...

    Hi there! This is my first post in the forum and I am desperate for some help! I know there is someone out there with the right information :) I have recently bought a 2003 Jeep Tj. It grinds when going into 5th and 6th gear, when it actually shifts into the gear it will slip out into neutral...

    I have a '97 Wrangler 5-speed, and over the last several months, I've been having an issue where it's near impossible to shift into any gear while sitting at idle. I almost can never shift into first, meaning I either have to start the car while in first gear, or do this little trick I found...

    Hey Everyone, I am having an issue with my 04 TJ manual. The issue is every once in a while, when I go to shift into gear after I start the vehicle it wont let me shift into gear as if I am not pressing the clutch. I can get around this by starting the vehicle in gear, and when I do it lurches...

    I have a 2014 JK 6 speed manual, and I am wondering whether I should rev-match my downshifts or not. My father and I disagree about this issue. I say that I should rev-match for smoother downshifts and decreased clutch wear. My father on the other hand says it doesn't do anything, and that, "Its...

    I just bought a new (to me) '97 Wrangler with a 5spd 4L I6. It is my 3rd Wrangler (first being a 5spd 2000 with the 4L I6, which I--ignorant to the terrible decision I was making--sold in order to switch to a 2007 piece of garbage 6 spd 3.8L...(which blew up on a trail after going through a...

    So for about a week now my '08 JKU has been acting funny. When ever I accelerate to get up to highway speeds, my jeep will climb to about 2000 RPMS as normal. Then it'll stay at about 2500rpm and get stuck there for a few seconds before going back down. And while all this is happening, my jeep...

    my '08 JKU with auto tranny has been acting funny. It's feels as though im towing something even thought i'm not. When im accelerating to get into 3rd gear (like when going up a steep hill or getting on the freeway) that the rpms will climb steadily to about 2500 where it'll get stuck there for...

    How can I adjust my RPM so when I am on the highway I can run around 2600 RPM. I currently run 2200 @ 72 MPH. Just nor enough power that low. If I shut the overdrive off it runs @ 3000. I think 2500 to 2600 would be perfect. I have an 03 TJ with the 4.0 Auto trans. I have 4:10 gears and 35 inch...

    I'm having a couple of issues with my TJ. I bought this rust bucket used from New York and put a 4" lift from rough country and 35" MT's on it. Now she doesn't handle the highway well. It struggles to do 65/70 mph.Someone said I need to get it reprogrammed. Is that true? Another issue I was told...

    I have spent days looking everywhere trying to figure out what is going on with my rig, but nothing seems to match my problem. I have a 2011 JKU Rubi-6 speed manual tranny with a 2.5" teraflex budget lift & 35's that I just bought last month. I have had it off-road 5 or so times, and have since...

    Hey fellas, I'm knew to the forum. I have been reading some other threads that are about similar problems my Jeep is having. However, I haven't found one that has said what exactly they did to fix said problem. I drive a 1998 Wrangler Sport 4.0 automatic trans and I took it to a mechanic...

    I have a Wrangler X, 2009, manual with 69,000 miles on it. I feel a shudder when I am shifting up into 5th and 6th gears. It seems ok if I let out the clutch very slowly, but if I shift normally, I feel the shudder. No problems in any other gear, no clutch slippage when shifting. Everything else...

    So tonight I drove to a friends house, stayed for a bit, but when I went to leave, my jeep would not stay into reverse. I drive an automatic 05, and the shifter is able to slide up and down the panel without the button even being pushed in. I have opened the shifter box open, and the plastic...
