Some issues with my WJ
Hello! First post here. Just bought my first (of many) jeeps. I have a 2001 WJ. 6 cylinder, 4.0. 151k miles. Runs and drives great. But I have some minor issues that I hope one of you could help me diagnose.
1) the shifter is a bit funky. I have to put the car in neutral to get it to go into reverse and put it in 2 to get it to go into drive. Car sometimes will not start due to not being properly set in park as well. When I bought the WJ, I was told "the shifter cable has some play in it" but my friends are saying it would be the shifter linkage and it just needs to be tightened. Any info on how to fix this issue would be greatly appreciated. (I.e. How to take the shifter apart and what to do)
2) within the first 10-15 minutes of driving the vehicle, I hear a whistling noise when I press on the gas. Fades out as I let off the gas and also immediately goes away when the jeep shifts to the next gear but it doesn't have to be shifting to do it so I don't think it's the transmission.
Again any help would be appreciated. I've only had this WJ for about 3 weeks and I'm loving it! Never buying a different brand of vehicle again!
