1969 dodge charger rt se 440, 727 torqueflite 3.55 suregrip with 8 3/4 axle, everyone is making her a headache for me but i love her 1000xs more then my jeep
2005 dodge 3500 cummins 6speed dually work truck, not mine
i have a 95 wrangler 4cly 5speed the tranny is all but shot so should i go auto or manuel?
and its not going to stay a stock 4cly for long and the axles might get swapped for beefier one so wha do yall think?
P.S. i can make anything fit, i can make anything work, resale doesnt intrest me, but te lower the price tag the better, thanks!
 
I wouldn't waste the time changing it out now, if you are going to change the whole drivetrain later. Find the engine, tranny, TC, and axles you want and look at the bad tranny as a good reason to tear into it. Change the whole mess all at once.

What he said! ^ Collect all your "stuff" and do it once.
 
sage advice
if you do stuff now you may be paying for adapters you may not need or need changed later
collect your tranny, engine, tcase, get any adapters needed, get new drive shafts of the proper length, and any new mounts that are the correct size, then after making sure all are in good shape, do not leak, and your time is right, replace it then. You will save time and money that way.
 
I have to agree with all the above. Do it all at once and do it right the first time.:chug:
 
Sell it and buy a CJ.
With a I-6 or V-8 and your choice of axles.

I hate to tell you this, but if your engine is knocking and blowing smoke, you're past the point that additives are going to help.
 
You can try a bottle of no-smoke, and pick up a cheapy stock trans someone is swapping out. Some times you can find an engine and trans together someone is swapping out of a 4 banger, that would be your best/cheapest option.

Well then. you had better just do a straight up replacemement of what you have, and get ready to do it again later, costing you more $ in the long run. I think your best strategy is to finish one project, then start another when you can afford it. A knocking smoking engine is not worth the cost of a $4 can of engine treatment. It's junk. Ther is simply no time where trying to get by with a low buck temp fix is worth doing, unless It's an emergency fix. It's like putting the $ in a pile and setting it on fire.
 
Manual for that little 4cyl...
finnally i get an answer!
thanks, whats the down side to autos vs standard?
and the motor pretty much is wrecked so i think a inline 6 if i cant rebuild it cheaply
 
If I'm not mistaken...The frames are different between a 4 cyl. and a 6 cyl. in the newer years. You might want to reconsider or actually do some research before you spend a lot of money you don't want to. I was told and have read that its easier to sell a 4 cyl TJ and buy one equipped with a 6 cyl. than try and modify yours for the swap.

Disclaimer: as always, I could be wrong. the newer Jeeps don't interest me that much so the info I get on them is relegated to a small and unimportant part of my memory. Like so much else...

I cannot tell you the difference between the frames.

I do know that autos will (for the lack of a better term) rob HP due to slippage and suck (excluding lockup converters). A manual trans is always a direct transfer of power.
 
what do you mean explode lock up converters? you mean lockers?
id love to sell it but i cant, i wont go into more detail but i cannot sell it, im seriously not afraid of moddifing the frame or anything, and i want a carburated engine, forget computers, i dont want anythin between the pedal and fuel valve
but if i could sell this thing i would have a deuce and a half in my drive way right now
btw thanks so far everyone

Huh? Did it do this before?

Did it just start?

If it just started, could be many things and they all require metal rework...

Give us some more info...
