Oh frick! Grinding!!! HELP!!!

Holy frick I am so pissed right now!!!

I was playing around with my moms overland and you know that other shift thingy like 4wd high and netural and low? I tried moving it while the car was on and i was screwing around. I put it in drive or park and then i put the other shifter into neutral and when i tried to put it back., i heard a LOUD grinding noise like i was breaking something!!! Now i'm so scared cause i think i might have broke the jeep. i may be imagining this but the engine and when it drives doesnt sound the same. could i have seriously messed up the car by doing what i did?!!!?!??

HELP!!

-Paul

I find it hard to believe that anyone would use "shift thingy" and would be more concerned that you wouldn't get your precious Jeep from your parents rather than be worried that you possibly ruined the transmission and cost them $$$$.

I don't know if I speak for others but if yopu were my son you'd be riding a skateboard rather than a Jeep.

Perhaps you should appreciate how difficult it is to earn a buck these days and own up to your stupidity.

You dont' deserve such a fine vehicle...

I believe that your post was a joke and if it was not you should have to repay your parents...

Ryan, I tend to agree with much of your reply! However, it may not be a joke although I think no harm was done. When we bought our 95 (in 95) I was told that you must use some force to put the t-case into (or out of) low range, and the resulting CRUNCH was indeed normal. I tried it once then, with the expected result. Haven't needed low range since then, so I haven't tried it again.

Paul, I would suggest you read the owner's manual and treat that Jeep as if it really means something to you.

Stocker....

I agree with your post...

Too many times I've heard (or personally experienced - I have a 17 Y/O son) that there's this endless pit of cash to correct mistakes. This potentially could cost major $$$ which could have been adverted by following instructions and/or advise for Jeep. Keeping that in mind perhaps I was a tad harsh.

As for shifting betreen high and low, I have has absulutely no problem shifting in either park or neutral (no effort what so ever). As an engineer I certainly wouldn't design anything that requires hard shifting, excessive force or ANYTHING that would make a grinding sound.

I'd go to the Jeep dealership and ask for assistance if it were me.

sorry

Hey thanks. i'm so relieved now that i didn't mess anything up!

I am definitley getting the jeep next year to learn on and abuse it and when i get good @ driving I want mercedes c class or bmw 3 series for college but i don't wanna drive a fricked up jeep for my senior year of high school. ya know what i'm sayin?

ryan2son, you seem like u treat ur jeep like its ur baby lol. my mom doesnt really care about our jeep even though its new. to them its simply a jeep that can be abused. my dad drives a lexus gs 400 and he babies that. and the jag s-type 3.0 my mom is getting in about a week will also be babied.....i mean , after all they're luxury cars.

btw why should i repay my parents...nothing got screwed up and it was purley accident

oh yeah and btw, how much does it cost to replace a jeep transmission?

I'm 17, and on behalf of every semi-straight minded 17 year old out here...stay away from my rig. If you think it's just a "simple Jeep" and you can use it and abuse it, and God knows that you don't know what to do after you abuse it, to make sure it will run fine the next day. I pray to God that I'm not the poor guy behind you when a tire goes one way, and your Jeep goes the other. I will also feel sorry for your parents when they bury your snotty a$$, and quite possibly give Jeeps a bad name, all because you think you can just abuse something like its a matchbox toy.
I hope your dad finds some common sense, and drives you to school. Thank God you live in New York.
