Three weeks ago at a Jeep dealership 90 miles from home, I test drove a 2011 Jeep Rubicon. My wife and I tried to leave to sleep on our decision, but the Bug would not cooperate. Here's some background. 3 months ago the clutch was replaced. The work was done out of town due to the clutch failing on the interstate while traveling. The shop is 250mi from us. Following the work, the Bug made a sound like a rotor being turned if the clutch was released in nuetral. I assumed this was just due to a flywheel rubbing the new clutch pad or something and it would go away over time. It didn't. That may be a factoid. So just before the tranny failed, 5th gear became problematic. A double clutch would solve the shifting issue, if there was one that particular shift. But the final fail happened as we tried to leave. I started the car, and put it in reverse no problem. But when I let out on the clutch it felt as if the E-brake was engaged. The car bogged down, then the tension was finally released in spurts, the car hopping backwards between release and catch of the tension. The gear selector was then extremely difficult to move, but once in N, it was easy to move through all gears. So I moved it forward back into the space and it duplicated the action going forward. Also, the selector was bound into first until I used a lot of force to move it. Then it moved freely. Yesterday I towed the car home behind my new Rubicon. I have lifted the front end in its new temproary home, my garage. I think I now have a project. I have a 15y old daughter in Driver's Ed atm. She has helped me change plugs, oil, air intake, cat-back exhaust and brakes. This will be a big step up for both of us if we change the tranny. I am open to hints, suggestions, opinions, and crticisms over the next few weeks. Please help guide me into the abyss.
