Clutch Problem?

I have a 87 Wrangler/YJ, with 5spd std, The transmission started popping out of first gear. The vehicle has 185,000 miles and I don't know when the clutch was last changed. Could my problem just be my clutch wearing out, or does anybody think it is a transmission problem. Anybody have any experience with this?
Thanks.

Re: Clutch Problem?

Check the transmission mounts - and motor mounts just in case the torque is causing the shifter to be moved. But most likely just a worn out transmission. If you have the I6 you have a Peugot Tranny - parts are available from some of the Jeep magazines if you want to tackle it yourself. It is not really worth paying for someone to repair it. Better to swap over to a more robust tranny at this point.

Re: Clutch Problem?

The clutch allows for a smooth transition when shifting, it does nothing to keep it in gear. If it's popping out, it's your tranny. At 185,000 miles, I'd expect it, especially with the junky 5 speed, you've been lucky. <font color=blue>Wrangler-Laredo</font color=blue> is right on the swap, but if it's lasted that long, it might be decent for a rebuild, then again it might not.

Re: Clutch Problem?

Hey, that price I was quoted was just for the standard rebuild pug tranny, with a 6 month warranty!

Re: Clutch Problem?

there is a reason they only give you a 6MONTH warranty, those tranny just SUCK. Go for the Beef. A T-18a will be a great strong and cheap (relativly speaking) tranny. Or if your rich you can get a NV4500. Go for the beef.

Re: Clutch Problem?

What kind of a price range can I expect? Can I find a used one, and where should I look, who supplies them?

Thank's, I'm new to the Jeep world.
