    Have you checked the clutch at all? Could that be the issue?

    I am not too familiar with it either, I am sure you will get a good response from member Brinker88, he is the man with that stuff

    Did you change it with mercronV?
  8. A buddy of mine has a 96 Cherokee. His made a grinding pretty bad. He ended up needing a new transmission. He tried changing the fluid with Royal Purple, but only helped for a week. Like Hooligan said, talk to Brinker88. He knows his stuff.

    Usually if a synchro is bad, it will be 2nd, 4th, and reverse.

    Probably a bad gear.

    You can try Lucas trans treatment, but no promises, could make things worse. I would say save for a JY tranny and swap, then rebuild your current tranny while using the JY one.
