1984 Jeep CJ7 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 135668 miles
I have had my CJ since 1984. Years ago the shifting grinded from 1st into 2nd and I simply double-clutched for about a year and the problem disappeared. About 6 months ago, after a period of little use, I noticed the shifting grinded when entering 4th gear so I began double-clutching and the problem was eliminated (unless I failed to double clutch). Yesterday I was driving home in 4th gear (about 35 mph) when I lost 4th gear. It made a terrible racket so I quickly put it in neutral and then down shifted to 3rd (no problem). I drove for a bit and gave another shot at 4th and it made a terrible racket (and didn't seem to be engaging) so I kept it in lower gears and made it home. Can you give me an idea of what problem I have and how much $$$ I will be spending to fix this? Thanks. Eric
