Sep 23, 2010 (3:40 pm)
We bought a brand new 2008 Jeep Wrangler X manual transmission, 2 door. We now have our 5th transmission. The first one slipped out of reverse, it took me a year & 1/2 to convince the dealership that it was doing this. The second one slipped out of first gear, number three rattled so much that I prayed that I would make it home every time I drove it (I use it to commute 120 miles of open highway a day). The fourth one made even more noise. If you hit a bump with the front drivers side tire it feels like you have blown a tire and it shakes so bad we have to stop driving it to make it quit shaking.

Do you have larger tires on your jeep? I have a 2005 wrangler as well and i drove it for two years now to have my tranny go into second gear at hyway speeds and stay there. i took it to the dealer and long story short i was told my tranny is slipping the pump, the clutches etc[$4000]. i didnt fall for that. i then asked and read forums . i changed the computer. [ my original code said trans controller]. no change but now an additional code, speed sensior, ok i changed that. same problem along with an additional code [3 codes now]. new code with new computer says my gear ratio is incorrect. my next step is to scan my Larger tire size into the computer. ill let you know what happens. I pray !

It's a result of the debris stirred up and now deposited in the valve body by the flushing.

I have a 1991 Sahara 4.0 manual. I can drive the jeep for about 10-15 minutes with everything shifting fine, but then when the jeep seems to be warmed up, I cannot shift into any gear.

I would suspect the wrong oil in the transmission.
When was it last changed, and what with?

I had some local mechanics do some transmission work awhile back. I will check into this and see what they put in it. Thanks,

Hello Jeep Forum, I recently purchased a 2008 Jeep Wrangler, 22,000 miles, and I am on the 4th attempt to get the transmission fixed. A new transmission has arrived and will be installed on Monday.

I hope it's a warranty claim and not coming out of your own pocket!

It is a warranty claim. It took them over two months to go this avenue. Unfortunately I had to send a complaint to the BBB and the Attorney General's office. We hope it fixes the problem!
