Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
While driving the transmission shifts out of overdrive. Shifts out of third and the torque converter will engage and disengage. The RPM will fluctuate 100 RPM several times and will jump to 3,000 RPM on the open road. The transmission was rebuilt. The tests were done but the transmission is doing what the computer is telling it to do. This does not occur all the time. This jeep has a 318 engine and is full time 4X4. It has 177,000 miles on it.
I would look into replacing the VSS which is the vehicle speed sensor, it is the input that tells the transmission when to go into overdrive and the torque converter to lock up, also make sure the connector is clean and tight to the sensor, this part is located on the side of the trans where the speedo cable would go.
