Transmission/Transfer case issue?
I was accelerating from a turn, probably about 20-25mph when my gears seemed to lock up. Just trying to get the stick out of gear is nearly impossible without seeming like I'm going to break something. Once in neutral, I'm unable to get it back into gear as normal, no matter what the clutch position is. If I shut the Jeep off, I'm then able to move through the gears. As soon as I turn it back on, I'm locked out again, leading me to assume somehow the engine is locking up the transmission?? Possible broken engine mount? A broken transmission mount? Something inside the transmission? Can anyone give me advice on where to start looking? I had a brief chance to look underneath the Jeep, and could find any obvious damage. Any help is appreciated!
