so, my jeep has a bad head gasket, and before i tore it down i took it for one last ride just up the road, and for whatever reason it didnt want to shift out of i think it was 2nd gear...it would rev sky high but wouldn't shift...now i know its not low on trans fluid, and i didnt blow it up just looking at it sitting in the garage, and the last time i drove it it shifted really really good...dont tell me there's like a fuse for this or something? maybe..any help appreciated, seeing as i have to drive it home in like 2 days.thanks!

Not sure what emissions stuff your year had, but the newer XJ's had a limp mode when things went haywire. Sorta sounds like what you're describing.

well my jeeps def not a new one, its an 89 and it has the aw4 trans, and im pretty sure its not doing any limp mode type of thing b/c like i said, it wouldn't shift out of 2nd gear at all....just wouldn't do it...does the 4wd being engaged or stuck in have anything to do w/this? b/c i think it might have been in 4wd when this all happened
