Need help ASAP Ahhhh so foot slipped off clutch and...!!
long story short but was pulled over, motor running, parking break on, and in neutral.
was distracted with person pulled over also and put into 1st gear engaged clutch quickly remembered parking break was on as I was in a rush to release the break at the same time looking for p.b. handle didnt realize that foot was giving gas as well. So all at the same time Engine is reved still in 1st gear I let off the clutch quickly (as I said distracted with the situation at hand) never was able to release parking break as I hear a loud pop and didnt lunge forward and stall as if it was the first time you slip a clutch but will not shift into any gear. feels like its just in (N) i mean I know something broke but was not drive shaft or u joint or bolt was able to put in 4HI to get home but Shoot me straight whats best worst case scenario and ball park work to get fixed. Thanks in advance and sooner the better.
thanks for the reply's stenyeart thats what my initial thoughts were but now thinking about it and it may not matter but that loud pop sounded right under me which makes me feel that its the transfer like red93 and if it is would that needed to be replaced or just a linkage type resolution.. thoughts anyone
Basically bought some cheapies at autozone and bolted two of them together to sandwich the pedal. It has properties to lessen the stroke of the pedal and if you remove the black things it will bite into even the muddiest boot.
thanks will be on it in the a.m or well when the sun comes up as far as you saying have someone look when in 2wd ill be solo when checking any thoughts I mean its not going into gear unless in 4wd so if i put back to 2wd hop out and take a look ????and thanks for the pics above but this really wasnt to much of a slip as opposed to big distraction and faulty parking break handle that makes me jig it around and put pressure before release so I really should have not had in gear and was not hearing me hitting the gas with right foot at the same time messing with break then went to jump out to pull parking break manually and then BAM! complete dumb move on my end but yeah no grinding as i pushed to side of road to mess with some more and put in 4wd so was hoping for a linkage problem?? but will check like i said in about 6 hrs
basically rear end and transfer case is what I got so far??that could be the problem If anyone else feels like weighing in please do as im looking for the quickest fix possible haha and cheap is there any other kind!
Well you should stop thinking with your head in the clouds and come to reality.
It's a jeep.
You broke it.
Expect the worst.
Your first move could be to shift to 4wd and see if the jeep will move a couple inches. I would put the jeep in gear (2wd) and see if the rear driveshaft just spins under the power of the motor without propelling the jeep. That will narrow down a TC problem. Then crack the cover on the rear axle. You should expect to spend anywhere from $200-$2000 depending on your level of mechanical ability and the ability of available used parts in your neighborhood.
oh Im familiar with broke expect the worse but yes this happened tonight and drove home in 4wd so that works fine. have not put in 2wd and checked if rear drive shaft spins on own. Will be doing that in the morning but earlier was in 2wd could put in any gear just clutch felt like is was obsolete and was not engaging at all.
But if rear drive shaft does spin then?
If it doesnt spin then?
As the transfer case is still engaging the front driveshaft then there's a good chance it hasn't blown up. My guess is that the rear spiders blew or maybe the ring and pinion is toast. It is entirely possible that you broke a shaft which is a cheap fix comparitively. Just get underneath at your earliest convenience with the transmission in neutral and the parking brake on and try to spin the rear shaft by hand. The front will spin but that's to be expected. You have essentially a broken axle shaft up front when the jeep is not in 4wd under conventional circumstances. If the shaft spins its your rear end.
I've broken enough rear axles to know the symptoms.
