#113 of 208 Re: 05 SE Manual Transmission Problem [will_seberger]
Nov 18, 2005 (10:57 am)
I actually noticed that grinding noise on my 2003 Jeep, too. It is like that all the time. From what I heard, Chrysler put in a newer manual transmission since the year 2000 and everytime when we release the clutch, you will hear the grinding noise. It does not do any damage to your Jeep at all though. I think it's true because I have owned many manual transmission wranglers in the past; a '97 SE, a '98 Sahara, a '00 Sahara and now a '03 Sahara, the first two did not have that problem but the last two. Hope that helps.
#114 of 208 Help on Steering Damper
Nov 20, 2005 (4:21 pm)
I'm a new Jeep Wrangler owner and just bought a 1989 Wrangler. Gone there replaceing the shocks. I want to replace the Steering Damper but seems I can't get it off. Is there a trick to this, is it a bolt holding it to the tie rod or what?

I have a Wrangler with the Command Trac 4x4 system. My understanding from the manual is that you have to be moving 2-3 mph when shifting into 4-Lo. The manual had some specific steps to follow if you want to shift into 4-Lo while not moving. I don't have my manual in front of me but I think it involved shutting off the engine. My dealer mentioned something about sometimes having to drive forward in 2-Hi for about 10 feet and then shifting into 4-Lo if nothing happens.
I also remember something about having to go back into 2-Hi and then shifting smoothly right into 4-Lo rather than stopping at 4-Hi but that may have been my wife's Liberty manual using Select Trac 4x4 system.
Sorry I can't answer your question clearly...just trying to give you some ideas. Good luck.

Every 2 or 3 days i have to replace anti-freeze. I have replaced the thermostat, and the fan clutch. Where is the anti-freeze going? Is it a clogged radiator,or bad water pump I don't know, there are no leaks. There is no smoke, and the car runs smooth. Normal driving at low speed it does not overheat, only at high speeds. I hope I don't have a cracked block.

Hello. I have a 1997 Limited and a 2002 Overland. Both have similar clock setting rules. With an ink pen in hand look at the face of your clock. You should see two small recesses in the upper right hand side of the face. One marked hour and the other marked minutes.
Inserting the pen into each recess adjusts your clock to the desired time.

I have a 95 Wrangle with a 4 cyl, checking the oil and found anti-freeze on the dip stick. I started out with looking over and under the jeep and did a compression test: all were fine. Than I pulled the head, found no cracks on the head or block. The gasket was intact. Out of ideas of what is the problem.
