Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Transmission problem While driving the 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo it seems as if the motor dies or loses power. If you take your foot off the gas and then give it gas the rpms jump and the jeep runs. Sometime it will not change from 2nd gear and manually changing sometime works to make it change gears. Any Ideas?

    I believe I have the AW-4. It is a 4.0L, in line 6. Is there anyway to tell for sure?
    I will follow your helpful suggestions and see how that does. Thanks, Renjay

    I have the same problem!!! I just bought mine from a repo lot and it does the exact same thing. I am thinking that it may the Crown Throttle Position Sensor......Any ideas?

    When in drive you can push the gas down while the rpms jump the jeep does not move forward nothing will "catch" when in first, second, or OD.

Hi renjay, is your jeep trans an AW-4 or a 46RH? The simple things to check here without getting to the internals are as follows; check your oil level,filter etc. check the throttle linkage adjustment,check the trans shift adjustment also have the TCM tested, the TCM (transmission control module) used with the AW-4 has a self diagnostic program compatible with the DRB II scan tool.The tester will identify faults in the electrical control system it will help determine if the problem is electrical or mechanical, after this it tends to become internal and we can adress that issue if it arises,hope this helps,good luck and let me know how you make out or drop me a line if you have any questions,take care

Foamy transmission fluid on a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. What is the cause? I have checked both the radiator and the transmission fluid for signs of coolant and fluid mixing. I found no signs.


foaming transmission oil is normally from incorrect oil level in transmission
check the level -hot, running and in drive
ensure somebody has their foot on the brake while carrying out the check

Why does my cherokee turn off while driving.Then i restart it and it runs.ALSO the motor shakes and loses power and turns off.


I would test coil and ignition module. Module has a low speed and a high speed section, so high speed part could be bad and cause unit to die, then start right back up on low speed part.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 8Cyl4.7L When when driving over 50 miles per hour will lose all power whats wrong?


When you say it loses power, do you mean electrical power or engine power ?
You would need to look at the fuse boxes for a loss of electrical power, and use a scanner or code reader to check the computer for trouble codes for a loss of engine power.

Can I swap a 94 jeep grand cherokee laredo 5.2l engine and transmission into a 95 cherokee sport


You probably could with a lot of work. The Cherokee Sport has the 4.0l engine and since it is a 95, it may or may not be an OBD2 computer system where as the 94 will not be. Plus you are going to a much bigger engine. The computers will have to be changed and I am sure you will have to do a lot of fabrication with the motor and transmission mounts among other things. It can be done, but it would be a ton of work!!!!

Took my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo to the shop because it has been dying on me while driving also its been rumbling now i got it today they said they changed some parts but now its worst they took...


It has this problem at Idle? If this problem is while the vehicle is moving but not at Idle or when you rev the motor check your A frame, Connecting Rods, Tie Rods and Ball joints. You also want to check to loose lug nuts or a bent rim. If it occurs when it sits at idle check the motor mounts and bushings and the transmission mounts and bushings.

Check your throtle postition sensor. It monitors what postion the throtle is at and sends that info to the ecm. It will go bad and cause that problem.

Service 4 Wheel Drive Switch


this seems to be because either the connection to the solenoid is loose or faulty or the solenoid is not activating. the transmission control module sends a signal to the solenoid to activate it. you get the light because the ecm detected that there is a a problem with the circuit. this is due to the fact that there is a voltage value to the solenoid and it is out of operating parameters
