#189 of 326 1991 Jeep Wrangler Transmission locked up
Aug 07, 2009 (7:53 am)
This morning when I started to back up the jeep, it wouldn’t move as if the brakes were on! Checked the emergency brake, it was off. Set it on and off to be sure. Still won’t move. Won’t go forward or backwards. In neutral, I cannot move it even by pushing it by hand. I tried shifting to 4wd, same. Put transmission in N, same. Won’t move. I jacked up the rear tires and they won’t move and they should. The front tire will rotate. I used the vehicle about a week ago and it ran fine and shifted fine. The 4wd and 4wd low also worked fine. I simply drove it into the garage and turned it off. Now it won’t budge. Details: 1991 Jeep Wrangler, 174k miles. Runs fine, no serious leaks, shifts fine, engine is strong.
Can’t get it to a shop unless I flat bed it. Expense!! Thoughts? Ideas on how to unlock the transmission so I can get it to a shop? Thanks for any suggestions.

Do I have the tranny rebuilt or replaced? I am ready to purchase a master rebuild kit from quadratec and have the work done at my local shop but I want to make sure that this is the right move. Replies welcome

While it may be the transmission or the transfer case, it could also be the differential.
To establish which it is, disconnect the rear driveshaft. If it then rolls easily it's a transmission problem, if it's still locked up it's the rear axle causing the problem.

I recently purchased a 2004 Jeep Wrangler X with a 5sp and 31,000 miles. I am hearing a "spinning" noise when the Jeep is in N, but when I push the clutch in it goes away. I was wondering if you ever figured out what the problem was?
#195 of 326 5th gear problems
Oct 30, 2009 (7:42 am)
i have a 97 wrangler sport 5 speed and my 5th gear doesn't hold speeds compared to my brothers 97 wranger sahara 5 .speed. My brothers jeep holds 80 easy were mine can hold 65 when i am lucky but usual only 60. has anyone had this problem. I have a cold air intake and a throttle body spacer. Resently had to replace o2 sensor in back of the cat. talk with some people and they said the rattling i had some time back might have been the cat breaking apart which might block the exhaust flow but i would think that would effect all gears not just 5th.
#196 of 326 1995 jeep wrangler transmission 5sp grinding
Dec 11, 2009 (3:08 am)
my 1995 jeep grinds when i'm shifting to 2nd gear but when i let the clutch in for a while no problem. Just wandering does the 5spd transmisson take oil what kind and where do you put it in?? It only has 68000 miles. i have the dot clutch oil topped off.

I have the same problem with my 95' wrangler. Everyone I talked to seemed to not have a answer. I just drive in 4th. Sometime it will stay at speed in 5th but, most times it dosen't.Does anyone know where the drain plug is located on trassmission? I replaced the clutch master cylinder. It shifts o.k. but, I need to bleed it to make it a 100%.

I also have a jeep wrangler 2008, exactly like yourself mine pops out of 1st gear, especially when it's raining outside or when it's cold. i have been driving stick for over twenty years and when i mentioned the problem they suggested that perhaps i wasn't pushing the stick far enough into gear, i then realized that they were not going to even touch the true problem. if anybody got a positive result or found out the true cause please let me know.
