YJ tranny noise

I just got an 89 4.2 with the Peugeot five speed (131K miles). It has a whine in 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th. 4th is quiet. Is this a bearing going on the cluster gear shaft?

well I was lucky and got the auto in my 87 but I heard bad thing about your tranny.They are prone to fail.Could be a number of things synchronizers going bad, bearings going.You could drain the fluid and see whats in it like metal or maybe no fluid.Thats about all the help i can offer but its mostlikly up for rebuild.But from what I have heard you are better off upgrading the tranny.Someone else will be able to tell what you need.

I had a pugeuot in one of my jeeps and it started to whine really bad. Then I was pulling out of the driveway one day and it wouldn't come out of first gear. Locked tighter than a wedge. So I opted to change it to an AX-15. I called jw jeeps in california and they sent me the change over kit for about 2grand. Good luck.
