Engaging Reverse Trouble

When I try to put my 1994 4.0 25k YJ in reverse at any speed it grinds the gears. Is this normal or a sign of transmission problems down the road?

Thanks,

Chris

:eek:

Try putting it in first and then straight into reverse without letting the clutch out. Grinding is "normail" but......... I think it is the " dog teeth"

first off, manual or automatic? (guessing manual)

second, why would you be engaging reverse at any other speed than a dead stop?

reverse is an unsynchronized gear in a manual trans and requires the shafts inside to be completely still to avoid grinding

also, your clutch may be dragging when your foot is on the pedal due to misadjusted linkage, leaking master/slave cylinder, or a bad pilot bearing

Ya it's a manual sorry I didn't specify.

I never try to engage it past ~2-3 mph but even then I forget to stop sometimes and it reminds me

I didn't know reverse was unsynchronized, that explains alot. Thanks!
