Engine dies at idle/Trans?Vib,1st gr. 5spd stk
I have a 1991 jeep wrangler renegade, 4.0L, fuel injected, 5 sp manual (AX-15?), 175,000 miles.
I started to have a vibration when starting out in first gear.. I thought it was the locking diff. Then I thought it was my clutch. I took it to a specialist he put in a new clutch, pressure plate, T-bearing, slave cyl. & trans. front seal. I still have the same problem. After talking to another jeep owner he said first gear in the trans. does that and it will get worse, but you can have heavy duty parts installed in your trans. and that will take care of my problem. Can you add or confirm this, or tell me what you think? I also have a idling problem (once in awhile). If the red light comes on, on the dash I know when I get off the gas the engine will die. If the red light stays off it runs like new. The more I dive it the less chance the red light comes on.
