I am ashamed to say, I haven't driven my YJ for about 2 weeks .
Today I started it and while trying to put it into reverse all it did was grind, I could put it reverse and start it and back up ok, and then trying to put it into first gear it would not go.
Does anyone have a clue what my problem may be.
This past spring I had a used ax5 installed and last year had new clutch installed.
After having the tranny installed this spring I didn't have a lot of clutch pedel and now it goes to the floor.
I'm going to say it's either the slave or air in the system from the swap. I'm pretty sure you can bleed it without removing anything but I swapped over to the external slave when I did mine last year.
l We're here for a good time. Not a long time. So have a good time the sun can't shine every day.
Back to this question,
I filled up master cylinder, Jeep goes into gear, shifts ok from 1-2-3-4, but down shifting it is hard to get into the gears.
stopping and trying to put into reverse it still grinds. I have to shut it off and put it into reverse and then start it up.
Update, had the Clutch blead by my local mechanic, He said he blead the clutch and everything seems fine, he thinks my problem is that I do not drive my jeep enough this time of the year and since the tranny has 90 weight oil in it my problem getting it into reverse is because since I do not drive it enough it doesn't get the oil up to a workable viscosity. What do you guys think? Does this make sense?
Jeep has set all winter, I took it for a ride on Sunday and everything seemed fine, shifted great all 5 forward gears and reverse, today I desided to take it to work.
5th gear ground a tiny bit and when I got to work and tried to put it in reverse it started to grind?
I can shut it off and get it into reverse again.
