First of all make sure you are checking the fluid right. Some people do not know that in order to check transmission fluid the engine needs to be running and the temperature needs to be sort of warm althought you should be able to get a good Idea just by the engine running. In this instance you might have a governer valve that isn't properly working to shift the engine when hydraulic pressure reaches a certain PSI. I would suggest having it flushed and put in new fluid and filter. If this doesn't work the problem is more serious and might need some professional assistance.

Tranny slips when shifts from 2nd - 3rd when it's cold.

When is the last time you changed your Transmission Fluid? It is recommended you change it every 30,000 miles. If you check your fluid it should be a pinkish red clor, if it is brown, it is dirty. If it is brown and smells burnt it means you may have Transmission damage, burnt clutches, etc.Change your fluid and filter and see it it will work better.

Was going around 60-65 and it wouldn't shift into 4th or OD - the O/D light came on. Did ok going lower speeds. Fluid was 1/4 quart low. 1994 Grand Cherokee Laredo straight 6

sounds like either switch wasn't on, or the transmission is starting to slip. The fluid was just a touch low, but how was the color? smell? if its dark in color, or smells burnt, then you need to have the tranmssion itself replaced. flushing the fluid and filter at this time will not help it out. good luck!

Check your transmission fluid and make sure it's full. Also check the condition of it. It should be a nice pink/red color, and shouldn't smell burnt.

On occasion dirty transmission fluid can just be changed and the problems will go away, but typically your looking into major tranny repairs if it's burnt.

Jeep grand cherokee transmission clunk

well then it sounds to me as if you need a transmission replacement...a flush or service at this point won't do you any good, as the transmission is using the contamination in the fluid to build pressure. so if you flush it all away, then the new fluid is way too thin to build any pressure...just replace your transmission....
