I have a 2000 Jeep wrangler that I just put in the shop on Monday the 14th of April for the same thing, it started popping out of first gear about three months ago. They are saying that it needs a new shift lever arm, the 1-2 sycros, and first and second gear for about $2000.00 dollars. It is in the shop as I type this to you. I did however talk to a local transmission shop before and after the diagnosis from the Jeep dealer and he agreed that the price was reasonable. Please note that this estamite was before they even tore the transmission apart.

Whatever they replace the cost of labor will be the same, as they have to remove, completely strip and rebuild, then replace the transmission.
Make sure they warranty the whole transmission afterwards, otherwise you might as well get an exchange remanufactured unit.

There's no quick and easy fix unless it's an issue with the transmission end of the gearstick.
Otherwise, remove the transmission and either strip, fix, and rebuild, or replace with a remanufactured unit.

Just an update on the 1991. I ended up draining the oil in preparation to have a very trusted transmission mechanic look it over. When I drained the oil it looked like Goldschlager!!!! Anyway, Autozone has dyno tested re-manufactured AX-15 for $1130. That the route I have taken. New u joints, tranny, clutch....now I suppose the engine will be next. Thanks for all the responses and advise. I sold the core to the mechanic and he is giving me a slice of the profits after he rebuilds it.
NOW here is the big question. Do I go with GL-3, Redline MT90 or Syncromesh? Sounds like the Syncromesh is the way to go or Redline MT-90.

I use Redline in my AX-5 (manual for the 4 cyl) and it shifts VERY smoothly.
#117 of 329 94 wrangler clutch issues
Apr 26, 2008 (6:25 pm)
I recently removed my transmission and had it rebuilt. The clutch was replaced about a year ago, and it is visually in good shape. I re-installed the transmission and once everything was reconnected I attempted to start and drive it. I depressed the clutch and it went down hard, as if caught on something, I pressed it to the floor, and it lost all pressure. It does not stay on the floor, but when depressed to the floor there is no way to put it into gear. So the clutch is always engaged. I added hydraulic fluid, and held the clutch to the floor for 10 seconds. Still nothing. I have a Haynes wrangler book, and in the troubleshooting section it has a number of different reasons why this could be doing what it is. One of them is air in the lines, and the solution is to bleed the them. I am really hoping it is air in the lines, but I really dont have a clue in the clutch department. Does anyone have any ideas aside from removing the tranny again, and realigning the clutch to ensure it is in the correct position? I am undertaking the deed at sunrise tomorrow, so any feedback would be great ASAP! Thanks.

UPDATE -- Installed new transmission, clutch and slave. WOULD NOT GO INTO GEAR. Good pedal, etc. Lifelong Jeep / drive train specialists baffled as well as a my friend, CarMax master mechanic. I later thought the surfaces may just be mated together and needed a little loosening up. I revved the vehicle to 5K for about a second and it started shifting just fine. Reverse grinds occasionally but other than that it drives fine. I wanted to share simply because the others can't explain how this would do anything. Anyone feel there may still be an underlying issue that should be addressed or just drive the vehicle and hope all is well. I personally think the flywheel may have been cut to thin -- I had it turn by a very reputable machine show who does all Firestone and Goodyear work on drive train parts. I would imagine they mic'd the flywheel! Thanks for everyones responses.

The smallest amount of air could cause the issue. Bleed the slave through a clear hose and have someone assist. I would gravity bleed first. Is it an internal or external slave? If internal did you remove the slave? If so, did you make sure to use a new clip on the alignment pin?
