Question about 2004 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

I have a 4cyclinder 04 jeep wrangler with 122,000 miles on it. I recently had to change out the brakes and when I thought all was fine, it feels like she wants to stop while in 4th or 5th gear. So I throw it into 3rd then back into 4th and it's fine. Last night it happened while going from 1st to 2nd. I'm assuming it's clutch related?

Probably not clutch unless you are missing details
clutch problems will allow the engine rpm to increase with a road speed increase but that is not what you imply
if you did the brakes your self , then take it to an accredited brake shop for a proper diagnosis

Sounds like you may have bent a shift fork or your cluster gear has some missing teeth on it now. I would venture to say that is it a bent shift fork. This will require the transmission be removed to gain access to inspect and repair.

SOURCE: 1988 wrangler goes foward but not in reverse. It

it sounds like you have 2 bad gears, 2nd gear may be fine for an hour or for ten years, theres no telling on that. your reverse gear is probably shelled out. your best bet is to rebould your transmission or buy a new one, sorry

SOURCE: on2nd clutch 08 wrangler 1st one replaced @ 9000

I hope when the first clutch was replaced the throw out bearing was replaced. It sounds like you are either riding the clutch (foot resting on clutch pedal and partially depressing the clutch during normal driving) or the adjustment is incorrect. The throwout bearing should not contact the pressure plate unless the clutch pedal is depressed when adjusted correctly. The constant contact is what wears the bearing out prematurely.

With just over 50,000 miles on my 2008 Jeep Wrangler (mostly all highway) Both of my rear pads and rotors need to be replaced.. Does anyone know if this is normal? My front pads and rotors are...


The front brakes are good at 30000 mile intervals ,because they do most of the stopping power. 50 to 60000 miles is about normal on the rear brakes. The most common ailment with rear brakes is the emergency brake not releasing. The cables for the emergency brake run under the jeep ,along the frame and rust keeps them from releasing

My jeep wrangler just passed 100,000 miles, what service does it need?


Here is the basic maintenance list for your Jeep:

~ Inspect lights and check tire pressure at least monthly or before & after each trail ride

~ Oil & filter change, chassis lubrication, differential and transfer-case fluids every 3,000 to 5,000 miles or 3 to 4 months - if you have recently crossed through water deep enough to submerge the centre of your hubs, replace the differential fluids as a precaution

~ Underhood belt and hose inspection every 3,000 to 5,000 miles or 3 to 4 months (every oil change)

~ Tire rotation and wheel balancing every 6,000 miles or every other oil change - driving offroad can knock wheel weights off a wheel, so you may need to have this done more frequently

~ Brake inspection every 6,000 miles or every other oil change - if you have rum brakes in the rear, ensure they are cleaned after each trail ride where you encountered deep mud/snow

~ Replace air filter every 12,000 to 24,000 miles or as indicated by inspection - dusty trails can shorten these intervals dramatically

~ Replace fuel filter every 24,000 to 100,000 miles

~ Automatic transmission service every 24,000 to 100,000 miles

~ Wheel alignment check every 12,000 to 24,000 miles or as indicated by tire wear - offroad driving can knock wheels out of alignment, so budget for an alignment every 3 months, then watch tread wear to see if it's needed

~ Cooling system flush and refill every 40,000 to 100,000 miles

~ Belt and hose replacement every 60,000 to 100,000 miles or 5 to 8 years

~ Engine timing belt replacement every 60,000 to 100,000 miles (when equipped) or 5 to 8 years

~ Air conditioning performance check annually, usually in the spring - be sure to run your A/C during the winter for brief period to ensure all hoses and valves stay lubricated and operable

1994 jeep wrangler 4.0 idles fine but when traveling cuts in and out and backfires when accelerator is pushed, i do have a cold air intake and jet performance module just recently added


1994 Wrangler with 200,000 miles on the odometer. Similar problem here: Severe bucking and backfiring, and engine misses when traveling down the road. I did an entire tune-up (plugs, wires, distributor, distributor cap, and ignition coil), but got the same thing. I thought it was dirty fuel injectors, so, I poured a bottle in a few times on fill-ups. The final solution, was a bad alternator. My mechanic said it was sending voltage spikes to the computer, causing the engine bucking and back-firing problems.
