Possible AX-5 trans issues??

FInally have my MJ running and partially driveable (need shocks and to finish the brakes) but am having some serious noises that I think are coming from the transmission.

It's an AX-5. It is making a rather loud clack-clack-clack sound. Today it popped out of reverse and at one point actually locked up for a few seconds bring the entire jeep to a halt. It did begin moving again almost as quickly as it stopped.

At any rate I am fairly certain it's the tranny...does anyone know what might be happening?

If you think it may not be the tranny feel free to post your thoughts please.

Re: Possible AX-5 trans issues??

It sounds like the tranny. I don't think reverse is synchronized, so more likely you have a busted gear or two. Not worth rebuilding. It happens that I just came across some notes I took over a year ago of the dealer prices for AX-5 synchronizers (didn't even get to bearings or -- God forbid -- gears). You don't want to know what the prices were.

Fire up and see what's available in junkyards near you.
