My 1993 jeep grand cherokee wont move when it put it in gear. The RPMs just rev up but doesnt go anywhere. Do I need a new tranny or could it be a sensor or something?

check the fluid. with it running and the wheels block or a friend in the jeep put it into N. make sure your on level serface and put the trans dip stick for the oil level. in may very well be low on oil.

2005 Jeep grand cherokee autoshift is not working.

This is not an auto shift or slap stick it is actually used to determine your top gear... its like putting your care in 1 or 2 gear

You can't put the transfercase in nuetral the car won't move its prolly a all time 4-wheel drive if there isn't a 2-wheel sign on the gear shifer then it's a all the time 4- wheel drive
