Your kick down cable for your transmission might be broken or unhooked. I would not drive with it not down shifting it will eventually trash your tranny.

Do I have to pull the tranny to fix it,or is there a cover I can take off to get to it.How much is the part?


You dont want to start buying 250 dollar parts , that you dont know you need.You need to hook a scan tool to this thing and see if the downshift is even being comanded. When you come to a stop the scan should have 0 output rpms and should say the trans is in low gear.If you have say 14 rpms showing on the output speed sensor at a stop the the computer will think the vehicle is still moving and not allow for a downshift.This trans does not have govenor solenoid and sensor like the earlier jeeps did.Its electronic controls are more like the mini vans with the 604 trans. I have seen mini vans have a downshift bump and / or no downshift because the plugs wires were too close to the wiring harness and creating a falseoutput speed signal. It will pay to have this Transmission diagnosed by someone with knowledge and the tools.

smell the transmission fluid and see if it smells burnt, If so the tranny may need rebuilding.

For your sake I hoping its a shift solenoid. Yes its in the valve body and there is some transmission surgery involved but its not that pricey. Otherwise it could be the shifter , manual shift valve, 3rd gear linkages etc. This is major tranny surgery. keep me posted.

first things first. have you identified whether or not it is using a kick down cable? if it is, chances are this is your issue. if the colar breaks or the cable gets freyed and sticks inside the sheath, it will cause definate shift issues. let me know

Possible transmission out not sure


When was the last time you had transmission oil changed and the tranny pan removed and the tranny filter changed? If never, this is your starting point.

The problem with these vans is that the tranny pan is at about a 20 degree angle under the transmission near the driver front tire. The problem with this design is that these pans eventually begin to leak at the lowest point of the pan, and over time you will not notice the ATF loss. Most likely your ATF level or cleanliness/viscosity may be bad.
Don't cry 'TRANSMISSION' until you get your tranny serviced (ATf oilc change, new tranny filter, clean magnets, clean pan, clean tranny).

Transmission downshift problem


This vehicle had a problem with the valve bodies in the transmission. There are several servos that assist the transmission to shift. This problem is best diagnosed by a local trans shop that can do an OBDII test to see if the trans has the proper voltages to the servos as well as to check the pressure.
