Q: Gears not sticking

asked by on

The second and fourth gear in my jeep won't stick.

It sounds like the synchronizers or syncros have gone out inside your gearbox. A good transmission shop could rebuild your gearbox or install a remanufactured unit. I would recommend having a certified technician verify and diagnose this gear shifting issue.
