Hey everybody, I'm new here, and posted this in the tj forum to start, then someone directed me here, so this is basically a repost to a different category. Anyways, I am looking at buying a 1994 wrangler from an ad I saw on Craigslist. I took it out for a test ride last night, and saw, or rather heard, some things that made me scratch my head. One problem was when I shifted from 2nd to 3rd the gears ground. I'm not sure if I was shifting too hard or what, but it definitely wasn't a full on no clutch grinding, but kind of soft bumping (my truck does this when it is not fully in gear). The guy said it was the syncros (he replaced quite a bit in the transmition in the last month or so) and they just haven't had time to mesh together. Is this true? When will the grinding/bumping stop, if it ever does? Will it suck mass amounts of money from my wallet(Just Empty Every Pocket)? One other thing I noticed was a very light ticking sound. Is this common? What could it be? Is it a possible issue (I know they are notorious for noises)?
