Clutch? Tranny?

Hi,

I have a 1993 Jeep Wrangler, 4.0, 5 speed.

When I try to select 2nd gear when the jeep is cold it does'nt want to go in. After it warms up there is no problem selecting any gear. I have replaced all the fluids, gearbox, clutch etc. The clutch needs to be pressed all the way to the floor at ALL times for the gearbox not to grind..

Any feedback as to the cold, gear selection would be appreciated.

Regards

these tranny's are pretty hard to shift when cold.although i don't have to have my clutch ALL the way to the floor for them not to grind. check your clutch fluid and see if your leaking any. if not, i would suggest replacing your clutch master cyl, b/c it's probably bypassing fluid causing the freeplay in the clutch to increase, making you have to push the clutch all the way to the floor to properly disengage.
this may get worse as time goes on, to the point when you will not be able to get it into gear. period.

Good to know. My 89 hates to go into second when cold. I also noticed that reverse is a bit strange when cold. Definitely have to use the clutch pedal to the floor all the time on mine too.

Well, I am going to bite the bullet and replace the tranny in my YJ. I am not sure what is in it now, besides a 5 speed manual. I would like some input on my options. I have a 4.2L I6 and will be putting 33X12.50 tire. It currently has a 2" lift and I think I will add a 1" body lift with the tire upgrade just to get some extra room. Any thoughts would be a great help.
