I have a 1994 Wrangler 2.5l 4 cyl. with ax5 manual trans. when i put it in 5th gear and hit the gas it makes an awful loud banging/rattling noise that shakes the whole jeep, but only in 5th and only when i hit the gas, any ideas what this is? thanks

my guess is transmission related. If it wasnt, it would do it in other gears at a simlar rpm or load.

The trannies in the 2.5s were very light weight as well, may be time to have an overhaul or salvage yard visit.

I would get a second opinion. Either way I wouldn't put a AX5 back in. When it breaks on a jeep it's time to upgrade.

well good luck! get that second opinion. ax5's are notorious for losing that 5th gear.
