(1) It has A LOT of difficulty shifting into and out of 4WD. If I place the vehicle into 4WD (either full-time or part-time) it will not shift back in 2-wheel easily. This is especially bad when I hit a patch of road that is clear, and the vehicle will literally "buck" in a turn -- I assume this is because the differential is still locked. When the 4WD is engaged and I want to get back to 2WD, I will sometimes either have to plave the car in reverse or (oddly enough) drive the jeep slippery terrain (snow, ice) for it to slip out of 4WD. I have replaced the transaxle fluid, but this problem persists.
(2) Recently, the Jeep's transmission has started "thunking" when I shift it into reverse/drive from park. Also, I've noticed that it sometimes shifts hard from a stop into first gear (but less so if I don't gun the gas).
have the same problem?
