Well this is in my jeep (dont ride my dirtbike much at all)
anyway, we went to the movies tonight. WE met this one kid at his house, and had time to waste to wait for him there, so i drove around a feild...did 1 doughnut, went back and he wanted to do one also, so i did one one last time..it was wet out and there was no problem in the flat feild.

Except on the 2nd one, when i was heading back, it felt like i was towing a bus behind me. It usually will move at about 1-1.5 grand, it took 2-2.5 grand to get moving. So we left, on the way out of his driveway i knoticed it had NO power till you got up to about 50-60.

Then i realized that it was only in 3rd gear :scared: . THe only way to get into 1-2 is to manually start in 1-2, then after 1 it would automatically shift into 2nd, then i had to push it into 3rd or drive. THat was the only way it would go into higher or lower gears.

After it sat about a half hour, got back in and what do you know, it shifts. But it dosent seem to have the power it used to. Reverse is perfect, it goes and shifts into all gears, but before (i didnt do it all the time) i could spin from a stop just gunning it...couldnt even do that in the rain today.


Its just weird.

Now my q is, is this a tranny or clutch thing.

Also from when i got the jeep, i could be going 45-55mph then step on the gas on the highway, it would revv up, then hit like a neutral, and redline...make a grinding noise then i let off and it would catch. Only did it some times.


And now when i get out of the jeep i smell this weird smell...kinda smells like burning rubber, well not really. Its probably a fried clutch. :oops:

i have (had) a 3 month powertrain warranty.
It ends in the end of this month. I guess we are taking it to a place on monday, but hopefuly it will be covered.

Althoughi dont have my warranty papers in front of me i believe it says, transmission casing, internal failure due to lack of lubrication...or something else with gaskets.
