Hello all. I have a 95 wrangler with the 4 banger and the AX-5 tranny. It started grinding when going into 2nd. I put in some good transmission oil in it and it has helped some. Now it is grinding and creeping forward when it is in neutral and the clutch is out. My next thought is to replace the clutch master and slave. Any other thoughts???

Ok not a lot of interest so far, but I will update anyway. I went ahead and replaced the master and slave. It no longer creeps when in neutral, but now slips when in reverse. It still grinds going into 2nd as well. I am thinking new clutch. Does this sound correct and should I go ahead and have the syncros done at the same time?

A good way to test for a bad clutch is to drive very slowly in 2nd or 3rd gear, then floor it. If the engine RPMs zoom up, you need a clutch. If it almost stalls, all is well in the clutch department.

Well what kind of transmission fluid did you use. The new factory recommended fluid is plain old 10w-30. A lot of people who have been having issues and changed over and it helped. I think it's the cheapest way to try first, but if your clutch is wore then it won't help. Good luck and in the off chance you don't believe me google it.
