My friends eclipse does something similar. Not sure if this is your problem but his clutch is toast.

I would say clutch. From owning mustangs; I couldnt keep a factory clutch in it. I THINK thats the only thing that can slip in a manual tranny. Synchros just means its hard to shift in or pops out of gear. I THINK everything else is a gear but I could be wrong.

If you want to clear codes you can just measure the resistance of the solinods and solder reisitors somewhere in the harness to "simulate" the auto

I have a 90 XJ complete for parts and a 98 ZJ motor on a stand that i want to put in my 90 YJ
Your thread is giving me hope that I can use the 90 AX15 with the 98ZJ motor.
A few questions:

I'm already making a tech thread since all the info is getting lost in my build thread already. at this point in time i am completely in the planning process since i'm trying to get a second job to finance the conversion. so far i have been referencing these threads as well as others

http://www.jeeps-offroad.com/showthread.php?t=23749

first here is the parts list i've gathered so far with prices
AX-15 from 96 XJ w/ 95,xxx miles from auto salvager-$400
I have a 90 AX15
AX-15 CPS for 96 XJ autozone-came with donor xj
I have the 90 CPS. Will the wireing match the 98?AX-15 HD clutch kit 96 XJ autozone-used what came with xj(felt brand new)
Flywheel autozone-also came from donor xj
Will the XJ flywheel and clutch bolt up to the 98?242 TCASE from 01 XJ(if sale works out)-$80
so far i'm at $846.98. still need xj clutch/brake pedals,
The Yj is a 5 speed, shouldnt be a problem there shortened/lengthened driveshafts, a trann mount, and the clutch mc with slave cylinder(external). hoping to get everything as cheap as possible. if needed if i'm running the 242 or 231 since i'm gonna toss my 249 as well i'll will just get my rear ds redone to fit and rock 2wd until i can afford to have my front ds cut down and rebalanced. in the next week or two a member from my local club is going to help me trailer the jeep home so i can start taking her apart to prepare for the swap. any questions or advice let me know
UPDATED Prices of parts i've bought so far
-95 xj w/ ax-15/clutch/flywheel-$400
-slave cylinder/master cylinder/shifter
-xj clutch/brake pedal assembly- $20
-2001 xj 242 tcase- $80
Current total spent- $500
current total subtracted from it the money i've made so far parting out the xj
-sold tires/wheels-$150
-sold ac blower motor-$15
-sold front seats-$50
-front clip currently spoken for-no final price yet
-engine spoken for-no final price yet
$500-$215=285
so so far i'm into the swap for all of $285. if any of yal attempt this swap and have the ability/space i highly recommend buying a donor vehicle so you can take what you need and part out the rest to recoup your funds
