New Jeep Help

Just purchased a brand new Jeep Saraha and I only have 100 miles on it. With the recent blizzard here in PA, I also used 4W for the first time. I don't know why, but when starting from a stop in 2nd, the shifter poped out of gear with a crunch 5 or 6 times while I was driving around. Ever since then, it seems that when letting the clutch out there is a click with the clutch is let out all the way, and the shifting is not as smooth as when I first started driving it. I have had 2 bad experiences with other cars and I am paranoid about noises and changes in performance. Is it my imagination or could I have done something wrong and broke something before I even started to enjoy it??? Please help!!!

Is it possible with all the snow that some got stuck inside the shift-boot area and is causing some of your grief?

I have had many problems attributed to snow-pack in the vehicle (cars, trucks, Jeeps) .. take it to a heated parking lot, allow to melt for the day and see if it makes a difference.

Sounds like a great idea. Forgive me for being dumb, but what is the shift boot area??? Is that something that could melt by normal driving since everything will be hot? I did notice that after wheeling around for a while that when I parked I heard all this dripping, when I looked under the Jeep, there was water pouring off of the transfer case and all the other drive train components that were hot.

Shift-boot is the rubber around the stick-shifter and the t-case shifter .. it basically seperates the underside of your vehicle (dust, dirt, water, snow, etc) from the interior of your vehicle.

Snow can blow into that area, and melt/freeze causing some grief.

The snow will melt from the hot-parts of your Jeep - engine, tranny, t-case, axles and such - but when its colder out, the melting process may turn into a freezing process soon after you get out of your rig.
