    This is a little trivial, but I'm curious if anyone knows of a shorter shift lever on the market for the Dana 300? I'm 6'1" and when I'm sitting in the passenger seat (teaching my teenage boys how to drive a manual) my knee keeps hitting the T case shift lever and knocking it into Neutral. The...

    I recently purchased a 1980 CJ 7. This is my first experience with any thing jeep, and no one has every accused me of being mechanically inclined. Never too late to learn right? The problem. I drove the jeep the hour and a half drive home and everything worked fine. Drove it a couple of times...

    Hey guys, I am new here and recently purchased a 4 speed manual transmission 1980 CJ5 with only 59k miles on it. I do not have much knowledge when it comes to vehicle engines, so bear with me as I further learn. The main problem I am having right now is 1 out of 3 times I take it out for a...

    Hello, I was teaching my daughter how to drive stick shift last night and I was sitting in the passenger seat moving the stick thru the gears and I noticed it wasn't moving correctly. I noticed I was able to lift the stick right out of the area which goes to the transmission. It was just...

    Hey J33P P33PS. This forum has been really helpful, so in an effort to contribute towards the knowledge base, here is a documented explanation of how to fix this problem. If your 4WD shifter is loose, and/or stuck in 4WDH, 4WDL or 2WDH, it could be a few things. The best way to identify...
  6. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    The shift lever on my 2006 TJ X Auto 4.0 went loose this evening. I found treads about the bushing at the transmission, but the cable was disconnected at the shift lever on mine. The bushing was cracked and no longer securing the cable. I cannot find a part number for that bushing - does...

    I am trying to remove my shifter from my T176 Transmission, but i don't know how to get it out. Any help at all would be appreciated.
  8. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I noticed my skid had some light surface rust, so I jacked the car, undid 10 bolts and dropped the skid to do a quick sand and spray. In the meantime, my roommate needed a drive to school so I dropped the car, and drove it to and from the university (approximately 12 miles of highway driving). I...

    Hello everyone, Yesterday, my shifter disconnected from my transmission (42RLE) in my 2006 LJ. After hopping on WF this morning, I went to O'Reilly's and picked up the Dorman Help! #14041 kit of bushings. It supposedly only fits up to the 2005 Wrangler, but I picked it up anyway. The...

    2006 Jeep Commander Limited 4.7L I brought my car in for replacement of a heater hose. They had to order the part so I left it at the shop. I went back later that night because I forgot my apartment key. Tech couldn't find my key and called his boss the manager. They found the key in the...

    Does anyone know where I can get a white monkey fist shifter knob for my jeep? Ive seen 2 jeeps that have them but have been searching EVERYWHERE on the internet and can't find anywhere I can buy one! I attached a picture just so everyone knows what I'm talking about. I want one real bad so if...

    I recently bought a 97 TJ 2.5L off a guy - one owner and in good shape. Today I went out to make a run down to Carquest, and as I went to put it in reverse, I couldn't get into any gear. The shifter is without a doubt in neutral. I didn't want to go overboard on trying to force it into gear, so...

    My TJ sounds like it has a box of rocks beneath 4 wheel shifter when 4 wheel drive NOT engaged. Had a mechanic listen and put her on a lift. He stated driver side U joint. In my ignorance :confused: I disagree. Again this rattle sound (at acceleration or low speed bump) disappears completely...
  15. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hi there, Got my first jeep about a month ago, a '93 YJ 4-cyl, 5-speed manual. Went to drive away, got up to 2nd gear, and the regular manual shifter (not the 4WD transfer case) went loose in my hand. I can still drive it, but only in 2nd gear, where it was when it broke. The manual 5-speed...

    Hey guys. I need some help. I am a novice mechanic. My 89 4.2 Wrangler had been leaving a puddle of oil each time I drove it. Through the help of the posts on this forum, I was able to walk my way through changing out the rear main seal. It has helped enormously. I still have a few drops coming...
  17. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Im in a bit of a pickle here: I changed the clutch about a month ago and removed the whole shift tower at the time by removing the 4 bolts (as compared to the other method). They were stripped so I went to the stealership and they wanted $17 for the 4 bolts :O So i decided to grind slots in the...

    I have a 99 WJ that I need to replace the shifter on. Will the shifter from a quadra drive work on a quadra trac 2? Ive found one at a pull a part but dont want to buy it if it wont work. Thanks in advance.

    After backing up in reverse, it always takes some shaking of gear shifter to be able to put it into first again. If I do not go in reverse, I never have any problems finding gears. Any thoughts?

    Hey all, short intro as this is my first post. Bought a 2000 TJ Sport that will be a family weekend fun vehicle and in a year it will be my son's high school commuter. Had a little adventure with it a couple weeks ago...the rod rising out of the shifter snapped off shifting into 5th. This was...
