Has this happened to anyone?
when the jeep is cold i.e. -10 to 10 F
My second gear pop's out.. no grinding noise just a pop and thats it.. not first, third or fourth.. when warmed up no issues...
I do have a 94 YJ 2.5L with 140k and clutch was replaced at 100k with a centerforce dual friction
Thanks in advance
when its really cold sometimes it wont go into 2nd gear all the way.. i have to put extra effort into pushing it in.. but ive never had it pop out, once it warms up there is no problem. your linkage could be loose.

I have a 90 YJ with a complete rebuild on the tranny and new clutch. My transmission went bad at 85,000 miles (3rd, 4th, and all the synchros/sliders)! I had problems shifting into 2nd and replaced the fluid and it fixed the problem. I did have it "pop" out of second even after the rebuild. Believe it or not, after the fluid change no problems. I was told by the shop that did the rebuild that they often install such a heavy weight fluid after a rebuild it causes the problems that I was having. Not sure this will help you, but you're not alone!
Same problem here, but doesn't have to be as cold... anything under 30 or so and I've had it happen... hard to get into second, and if i clutch in a turn or something, it often shifts itself into neutral... never had it happen with any other gear but second, and only when very cold.
Someone solve our problem! ;-)

This also happens to me when it's cold, it's hard to get into second. I changed my transmission oil to synthetic and it helps a bit. I think it's just a problem with the YJ. I usually just rev it in first and shift directly to 3rd when its cold.
it's sounding more like it's so cold out that the gear oil is turning to sludge.. i suggest running a thinner gear oil if you're in really cold weather most of the time.. also.. a synthetic liek mobil 1 will also fix this prob.. 75W90 is standard for most climates..
Awwwwwwwwwwww... So he wants to go OFF-ROAD does he????

Hey Fellas,, It's not your linkage,, Its your gearweight oil.. You are probably running GL5 gearweight in your tranny,, whenever you get time,, switch to GL3 lube. This will create smoother shifting and it is all around just better for your syncros too. Put GL3 in and your good to go....
