Hello...this is cool! My name is ***** ***** and I have a 2013 Jeep Rubicon - Manual Transmission. I was driving it today and it would not shift in 1st or 2nd....it would move while in 3rd. I immediately drove it home and now it will shift into all gears, but barely moves.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

57,xxx..... I did have a bad smell coming in form the vents. I took it to a Jeep dealership and they said everything was fine and it didn't make sense to check the clutch unless it wasn't working. Basically said if you check it, you should replace it.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Just hoping not a transmission issue
Jeep Mechanic: b5demon, Technician replied 2 years ago

with the smell you are getting and the trans shifting issue it sounds like the clutch is the issue

Does(###) ###-####sound like a correct estimate?
Jeep Mechanic: b5demon, Technician replied 2 years ago

if the clutch is slipping it will need to be replaced nothing really to check with it. Yes that sounds like a good estimate
