think my tranny is on its deathbed. =(

for the last couple days its been grinding 4th. last night it started grining 2nd in the same way. Only on the upshift not on the downshift. Just now I was getting ready for an oil change. I was at 7-11 and it started grinding whenever I let off the gas. The engine braking pressure made it make noise like crazy!!! what should I do? Where do I check if it has tranny oil from?? could that be the problem? low fluid?

Try changing the tranny fluid and make sure the slave cylinder is fully disengaging the clutch. if it still makes noise, probably time for a rebuild. if you find a good used tranny, i may be interested in your worn-out one. just shoot me an email if thats the case: [email protected]. hope its just low on fluid! matt

Re: think my tranny is on its deathbed. =(

Those early YJ's(I know I have/had one too) have a troublesome interior clutch slave cylinder. Like mentioned above check that first, along with changing your gear oil. Try changing to a synthetic, like Amsoil.

Also make sure that you have the AX-15. '89 is when DC switched mid-year from the BA-10 to the AX-15. The BA-10 is split lengthwise(many describe it as a clamshell and about as durable as one) and the AX-15 is split horizontally to its length. They are the exact same length. If you happen to have the BA-10 ditch it and don't rebuild it. You will be much happier with anything else.
