    I'm not the most mechanically inclined but here's what I've got going on if anyone has input it would be appreciated! So I was aimlessly driving with my stock Sahara. Decided to see how it handled the snow. Didn't think about how much it snowed this year and as I pulled off the road I was met...
  2. JK Technical Discussion
    A recent issue that developed with my 2012 JK was a hard shift on kick down and the transmission straining to get into overdrive. Checking the fault codes turned up nothing and I did not have a check engine light pointing at the problem. When I checked the forums it seemed that plenty of...

    I am a lousy mechanic. In fact, I have little to no mechanical ability at all. Except I've become an expert at removing the positive (+) battery cable, grounding it out, reconnecting it and resetting the flawed '06 Jeep Wrangler computer (4 module plug version). Yes, my Rubicon Unlimited...

    Hello all, I just bought by first Wrangler. 2017 Rubicon Recon/HardRock. 32,000 Miles, $31,000. Reverse was popping out of gear. Some shifting was hard. I brought it back to Jeep Dodge Chrysler of route 46 for a diagnostic. I was expecting a new trans, but they want to rebuild...

    I just bought a used jeep, and have been going through this nightmare recently. I have a 2004 TJ 4.0 liter automatic transmission, it has been driving around in second gear, after about 20-30mph the rpm will go over 2000 and up. A buddy of mine plugged in his reader and found the error code...

    Yeah...so... my wife got the Jeep. I have to drive the sedan. Happy wife, happy life. Anyway, when we accelerate - usually after we hit 25 mph or so, the car will vibrate. As soon as we let off the gas, it will stop, or if we accelerate hard it will subside as well. U-joints? This is a 2012...

    This is my first post and I am trying to determine what the possible issues are with the 2005 Jeep Wrangler X. It has the standard 4.0L automatic with stock gears. It has a 2.5" lift kit and 33s. I had the transmission replaced about 6 months ago with about 150k on that original trans...

    Hi, The problem I am having is that when I release the stick the "neutral position", the place the stick will rest when you aren't touching it, is not directly inline with 3rd or forth gear but slightly to the left of it. When shifting this means you can't just push up from 2nd, let it slide...

    I drive a 2008 Wrangler, 4-door, 35s, 2.5" lift, 75k miles. I recently had the clutch replaced, 2 weeks ago actually, because it was slipping and then finally completely gave out. Two days ago I noticed when I would begin to accelerate from a dead stop, the entire jeep would shake as if it...

    Hello everyone! My name is Tim and I drive a 2005 Wrangler Unlimited with automatic transmission and just over 100k miles. Today as I was attempting to go to the grocery store, something broke on my jeep. I turned it on, engine fired up like normal, I put it into reverse then took off the...

    Hello everyone first post here, got a 05 Tj sport 4l 6 speed, doing a routine fluid change and torqued drain plug too tight now there is a crack that drips fluid. Wondering if jb weld will do the trick and hold. Also i believe the 2.4l 05 tj 6 speed has the same transmission, if so could i use...

    After getting my Reman NV3550 installed yesterday it did fine at low speeds (20mph) but when I hit about 40 it felt like I had little power and had a harsh vibration that sounded and felt like it was coming from the rear end. After a mile or so the rear U joint in the rear drive shaft snapped. I...
  13. CJ Technical Discussion
    Okay so a buddy of my has an 86 cj7 and today his trans basically took a shit on him. I do not know the details enough to tell you. Its a manual and we are assuming its a T4. He has the 4.2L. But tomorrow when hes done flying at school he is going to check out a T5 that some guy has. Now I told...

    I have a 2008 2 door JK with a standard transmission. I have had it for about 7 months with this issue never happening before. 2 times today I have been stopped at a light, once I begin to start to move forward the gear shifter will pop out of gear pretty forcefully. I know this obviously points...

    I have an 01 wrangler sport. It will not downshift unless I drop below ten mph. Also from time to time it will not shift out of first unless I push the pedal hard and I feel what feels like an unsticking of the pedal then it's fine. But the downshifting problem is always happening. Fluid is good...

    I have a problem that I think is in the transmission or torque converter. My 02 Wrangler Sport with auto trans sometimes dies when I back out of the driveway and stop to put it in drive. The vehicle acts like it doesn't want to stop then shudders and dies. It seems like the torque converter...

    My 03 4.0L with AT has started "missing the gear" when it tries to shift into 2nd gear. Most the time I can rev the engine and it will catch. Other times I have to come to a complete stop to get it in gear. Any advice.
  18. General Jeep Discussion
    I just came back from Ouray and ran into 4 jeeps (2009 and earlier) that lost their transmissions. They all had little plastic thimble like pieces that shattered. I have a 2012 Rubicon Unlimited and am wondering if Chrysler has corrected this problem and maybe come out with a metal replacement...
