ax-15 won't shift when driving

Just got done putting a used transmission. Drove great until today (3 days) when it's running it won't shift... like clutch won't engage. Is that slave or master??

You probably need to provide specifics to help diagnose the problem.

If the Jeep is stationary with the motor running, when you depress the clutch can you easily get the tranny into first or reverse?

If you can, your clutch master and slave are working.

That sure sounds like the clutch disk is dragging.

Have you checked fluid level in the slave master?

If the clutch was working fine before you swapped the trans, then most likely there is an assembly error as it is unlikely that the clutch hydraulics would coincidentally fail at the same time.

See #4 above.

You accidentally have an assembly error, the system is low on fuid and perhaps needs to be bled, or you won the lottery and the slave system decided to fail coincident to your working on the transmission.


Or, your floor mats are bunched up under the clutch pedal, preventing full movement.

But it sure sounds like the clutch disk is dragging.

glad you got it fixed... sometimes it just takes people having you check areas that you had not thought of... glad you didn't smash the relay pushing the clutch in
