I need some advice on a transmission/clutch problem.
It's on my '91 YJ 5 speed 4.0L.
Here's the problem:
At a stop, you can't shift into first gear. If you put it in reverse, then first; it will usually work. If you shift into first while you are still rolling, it will go in most times.
At times, when stopped, if you try and put it in reverse, it will grind away, even if you pump the clutch.
Sometimes, it will not go into any gear unless you shut off the Jeep, and restart it.
I've checked and the transmission fluid is full, and doesn't look discolored.
I'm on a shoestring budget as this *new*(to me) Jeep also has an overheating problem I'm working on, and the front Brakes/Rotors/Calipers need replacing
The original owner said that this has been happening for a long time... and they just dealt with it; They had a transmission guy work on it a few times with no success.
Thanks for any suggestions!
