After all this time, since April of 2011 after new transmission, the 4th gear continues to pop out while driving and into neutral. Paperwork has been submitted to the Maine Attorney Generals office to exercise the Maine Lemon Law. This Jeep has only 27,000 miles on it. Very frustrated with Chrysler and their solution was to replace the shift boot; if this doesn't work, they suggest replacing the transmission. HELLO, they just did all that work in April.............

I have a 2006 Jeep Wrangler 4.0 automatic with just over 20,000 miles. Sitting at work and cranked fine, only to find out it won't go into gear. Never been in the mud or in deep water. Sits in a garage and is driven for pleasure only. Any suggestions of what to check first ?

You say it cranked fine, i.e. the starter spun the engine, but did it fire up and run?
When you say it won't go into gear, do you mean the shift lever won't move, or that with the shift lever in the correct position the transmission won't engage?

#309 of 329 Jeep wrangler manual grinding at shift
Oct 22, 2011 (11:37 am)
I bought a 2008 Jeep Wrangler X 6 speed manual a few months back. About a month ago the clutch starting getting stiff and it started making a grinding noise as I am about to shift between first and second and even more so between second and third, but never slips. Called the dealer I bought it from and they said that a stiff clutch was normal for jeeps especially ones like mine that had been lifted and had bigger tires. After that phone call I got underneath and noticed a leak, took it to the dealer and they replaced the master and also said the fluid leak was probably causing the noise. As I am leaving the clutch feels normal again but the grinding noise is still there. Turned around and went back, they say there is no grinding noise when they have it up on the lift. Any ideas ?

What exactly was happening for you to know that it was the computer?? I have an 06 wrangler sport with MAJOR transmission issues. I had a new one put in it last month thru the dealership, and its still having issues. They cant seem to tell me whats wrong with it. But they did keep mentioning a temp sensor. I did have a mechanic not associated with the dealership tell me that it could possibly be the computer. ANY HELP OR ADVICE IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!!!!

i never really thought anything of it because i dont believe it has affected the cars performance in any way...but it is not aesthetically pleasing whatsoever. i see even 2007 to 11 mine is the only rusty one. should i worry about this?

Only if it worries you!
Smarten it up with a $4 can of aluminum paint from Home Depot.
Otherwise, save up and plan to replace the muffler in the next five to ten years.
