Question about 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee, Automatic, AWD, possible transmission issues?

For a couple months now my Jeep will **** twice and then act normal when I would first start off driving after it had sit for at least a couple hours. We figured it was just cold. But this morning I went to pull out of my subdivision and my jeep wouldn't go but the RPM's soared and you could hear the engine trying to make the car go. I checked everything to make sure I was in drive and everything was fine. Still the same results. So I put the car in reverse to try to get back home and the car would only crawl back with RPM's soaring and engine reving. I finally got turned around and put the car in drive again. It started to creep along with the RMP's soaring and the engine reving. All of a sudden the car **** very hard twice and jumped forward going at normal step. I drove around the block and it acted fine. Does anyone know what is going on or has had this issue. I have not service lights on or anything. I am taking it to the dealership but they said they might not be able to figure it out if the Jeep doesn't do it for them. Please help, this Jeep is the vehicle I use to transport my children so I want it to be safe. Thank you

SOURCE: transmission issues (I think)

Use a engine scanner to pull codes, If none it sounds like the lock-up torque converter may not be disengaging at idle. Or you have a idle air control valve or TPS going bad, then repair codes by replacing failed sensor or shift control solenoid as needed. If no codes are present your transmission could have a internal failure. It's also been know that oil transmission fluid in the system will have a higher fluid retention causing the 2nd gear solenoid to stick causing the transmission to stay in second till the line pressure rises and drops back to first with a hard shift. Keep me posted be glad to get your transmission running again

SOURCE: Hard starting when cold ( engine cranks normally )

see if your engine has a ECT sensor (temp sensor that delivers information to your ECM) they are installed on the intake side of the cylinder head, it usually has 2 cables, have it checked replace if necesary

My 05 Jeep Grand Cherokee just whined loudly while driving, and while in gear, doesn't shift/drive, any ideas what it might be?


IMHO, Jeep/Chrysler hasn't had a great rep for the transmissions within the past 20 years. In most instances, transmissions should last the entire lifetime of the vehicle when cared for properly. Checking fluid levels regularly, as well as following manufacturer service intervals make the difference. Keep in mind that transmission fluid should be changed just like your oil, but on a very different schedule.The Grand Cherokee being a model plagued with transmission problems especially if you have the four-wheel drive "Quadratrac" transfer-case package. I am not sure sure if this is a "maintenance free" (I hate that term) or "sealed for life transmission" and case. If it is, I feel very sorry for you because like many others, you have been mislead. Transmission fluid does in fact have a service life and the fluid certainly takes a beating. Not only does it lubricate your transmission as oil does for an engine, it acts as a coolant, and it is also a hydraulic fluid to assist automatic shifting in the case of automatic transmissions. Transmission fluid should be changed because old fluid loses viscosity and can become "dirty" due to natural surface oxidation of internal parts. Unfortunately, usually by the time a transmission starts "acting up" or starts making noise the damage is already done. If you have an automatic, the whole transmission will have to be redone or replaced. If it is a manual trans its possible certain components can be replaced. I have had a girlfriend and co-worker who both had these Jeeps with automatic and wound up ditching them because of tranny or xfer-case issues. One jeep started having trans problems at 70,000 miles. :-(

Slipping transmission


Most of these transmissions cannot be adjusted for slippage. Try an Amaco transmission shop, most will diagnose, tell you what the problem is, and give you an estimate for free.

Driving me nuts


If it is automatic transmission with overdrive the lock-up torque converter is kicking in and out causing the rpm to fluctuate.Could be just the converter or maybe the overdrive going out.
