Clutch - transmission really need help

2004 2.4L WRANGLER TJ

Driving along and it just stopped. High rev on rpms.
Towed it home and replaced the clutch.
Bled master and slave cylinder.

It will start, but won't move. I can put it in any gear and nothing.

What should I do next besides shoot it or me?

Additional details.
In 5th gear driving. It acted like it was taken out of gear.

No transfer case not in neutral.

Anyway drug it home and put in clutch and bled master cyl and slave cyl.

You can shift it through the gears without depressing the clutch. Start it up and it will run but does not move.

The drive chain is only used for transferring power to the front axle. Rear is a straight shaft with essentially a splined sleeve that either couples power directly, or through a planetary gear.

Sounds like you could have a broken shaft somewhere. Question is whether it's in the transmission or the transfer case.

I would think if you can shift into gears without the clutch and the engine running your transmission input shaft is broken... weird to say.You could always drop the trans and see if the input shaft spins the output shaft. That would tell you where the break is.

I stand corrected, thank you!

I'd pull the TC before pulling the trans, and see if the transmission output shaft turns. That's easier than pulling the trans to start with.

Good resources:

Maybe the transfer case shifter linkage slipped out of adjustment and even though the lever says it's in 2Hi it's really in Neutral. When that happens you can't shift the transfer case into 2Hi, 4Hi,or 4Lo.

When you have a choice, buy American made.

But you have to go through 4Hi to get to neutral. Wouldn't you feel that happen?

That depends on how familiar anyone is with shifting the transfer case, and at what point the linkage decided to slip out of adjustment while it was being shifted.
