Why will my 81 cj5 only go into gear when not running?

Asked by Jun 07, 2015 at 03:55 PM about the 1981 Jeep CJ5

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Jeep ran fine before we replaced the engine. Engine now
runs fine but when the guys backed it out of the garage to
take for a test drive it somehow got turned off (I don't
remember if it shut off or they shut it off). But now it goes
nowhere due to the jeep won't go into gear while the
vehicle is running but will when it is not running. Help! I
need my jeep running by Thursday!
