TRANSMISSION FIFTH GEAR SNAP RING

1995 Jeep Wrangler

Transmission problem
1995 Jeep Wrangler 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 230000 miles

After having the clutch replaced by a transmission shop the transmission began to have trouble in fifth gear and downshifting into third second and first. The problem was said to be a loose main shaft nut. Is this the same thing as a snap ring? I have found no reference to a nut in any material on this transmission. What further damage will occur to the transmission if the vehicle is driven in this condition?

Thank you
