Take a look at the clutch master cylinder to see if the fluid is up to level. Are you having a hard time getting it to shift into first or are you saying once in first the Jeep has a hard time moving?

I would change the oil in the tranny if you haven't already. It may not help your problem, but it'll prolong the life of your transmission.

The fluid is good in master cylynder also had trannyfliud replaced. The jeep goes fine once in gear , it;s just changing gears from one to the other (actualy going in gear is hard you some times have to force).Then some times falls right in.thank's for the reply.

try thinner oil in the transmission .

whats the clutch like for wear ?i would replace it before tranny , and buy a tranny a wrecker before i had that one rebuilt unless your going to do it .


know how to power shift ? i would try that and see if it changes or double clutch , and see what happens .
