Question about 1989 Jeep Cherokee
Straight 6 fuel injected
4 speed auto
Shift tranny into 1-2 it pulls away fine then to 3rd and drive fine. When you slow down if you don't down shift it yourself it will stall becuase the kick down is not working.
If you try to put it into drive to "get going" it revs up to about 2,000 rpm and "gets going".
I have tried adjusting the throttle cable kick down under the hood by pressing the release button and pushing the cable back then setting the throttle to full and allowing the cable to return. Still no help.
What else can I try or do I need to drop the pan and look inside?
It sounds like your torque converter is slipping, take it out and put in a new one.
