    Ok so about a week ago or so my jeep started making a loud gringing noise when I shifted to 3rd gear and sometimes it wouldn't let me get into 3rd unless I pump the clutch. Well now I have to pump the clutch a couple of time or more to get into 1st and it is getting pretty annoying. Can anyone offer any advice on what it could be. I had my clutch replaced a couple months ago, could it be the clutch again?? or something else....its a 95 2.5 5speed

    Grinding while shifting and more...

    Slave cylinder (might get lucky and have an external but bet it is not) is shot would be my guess! Always go ahead and replace it when you do a clutch job just to save the trouble of dropping the transmission again after you went to all the trouble to do the clutch. Check out you clutch fluid level and then bleed them to get a few more days of driven out of it till you can git-r-done! Sucks don't i? tug

    If you are having to pump the clutch, then it is your hydraulic system. You might have a bad master and slave cylinder. I went ahead and changed both because I got the package deal. It already comes with the hose connected and bled. Check tellico4x4.com

    Could be bad synchros in the transmission, try installing Redline MT90 and it should really smooth your shifting out. You'll be surprised how much of a difference the correct fluid will make.

  8. where do you get that gear oil at that you mentioned in the above post? i never heard of it before

  11. Hey,

    I am having the same probloms with my YJ transmission/clutch.....was going to change the fluid and see if that will help out...but im not sure how much fluid the manual transmission holds..looked in the owners manual but couldn't find it(im sure its in there:/) if some could help me out that would be great....also is the Redline fluid available at most auto stores???

    Got Herculiner, Got question

    No, not too many stores carry the Redline.

    The AX5 and AX15 hold about 3.5qts.
