clutch prob!

I have a 94 yj with 120k km and it grinds like crazy going into reverse. Its at the point where i turn it off to put into reverse. First gear is a ***** but once its gets going its shifts fine. Any help will be appreciated

If you haven't changed your gear oil lately, try that. Synthetic gear oil will often aid the shift quality.

If you change your gear oil and it still has a problem try checking to make sure your clutch is set right. If that does not work you might need to check your cyncro, it might be going out.

90 YJ stock for now...

I have the same problem with my jeep. I find that if I depress the clutch and go into any forward gear first and then going into reverse, before I let the clutch back out, that it doesn't grind. Somtimes it takes several tries but its better than hearing the gears clash. I hope if you haven't tried this already that it helps you keep your transmission a little longer.
