Thanks for the add. Quick question got an 89 automatic yj wrangler wont go into any gear even if move linkage manually under vehicle ideas???
Josh Marxen: Check the trans fluid. If its a bad color or smells like burnt oil your trans probably quit. It could be the torque convertor has broke. It is just basically a oil driven clutch. After checking the fluid at the dipstick I will drop the pan. As long at its not full of metal flakes a new filter and fluid may help.
Travis Clark: Went to shop today said housing is broken needs whole new trans
Josh Marxen: If your running bigger tires might be time for an upgrade. The yjs arent as popular because jeep put cheaper parts in them.
Travis Clark: Yeah I just got it hoping to beat on it some more before upgrades it has 4.0 ho swap ford 8.8 rear 35×12.50 about 8 inches total lift. Guess the build starts sooner than later lol
Travis Clark: Driveshaft failed violently broke the housing Im pulling 350 and trans out of z71 I have and installing them
Josh Marxen: Watch your driveshaft angles as the jeep is short and the 350 set up is going to be long. Im guessing 6 suspension and 2 body lift so the rear axle is going to need rotated up or your pinion angle is going to be more than 30 degrees. Its like trying to run a driveshaft around a corner.
