Question about 1992 Jeep Cherokee Briarwood

1 Answer

My 1992 Jeep 4.0 automatic wont shift into drive and overdrive.

It seems fine going around 25 mph to 35 mph but when I get to a hill or try to go higher than this there is no power and also there is a noise in the vicinity of behind the passenger glove box. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you Heidi

    the noise sounds like a vacumn leak . I just took the car out and on the way to the place I was going the car wouldn't go past 35-40 mph on the highway. Fortunately, there is snow on the road so I am able to do this. However, on the way back I got on the highway and the car was able to go 50-55mph and appeared to upshift into drive, without reving up to 3000 rpms like it was before. I don't understand it? the noise sounds like a hissing leak when you first start it up but it goes away after a minute or two. My boyfriend says that it is the airconditioning pump, and it is kindof coincidental that it happened right when my shifting problem started.Could the two be related?

Alot of transmissions run a small vaccum shifter. IF you are up to it, crawl under the jeep and look at the side of the tranny (should be the right side of the car, right above the tranny pan you will see it. its only 2-3 inches in diameter There is also a vacuum line running to it about 1/8th inch rubber line. Its either off or broke near the vacuum shifter.

Hope this helps, Goodluck.

Why when i put in drive and go it goes into 1 or2 or drive by it self while driving


It always starts out in first, it's a 3 speed automatic, that's what automatics do. they start out in first and at about 15-20 miles per hour , they shift to second gear, and when the speed is about 35-45 MPH, the transmission automatically shifts into third gear, or Drive.

Bigger automatics have 4 or more speeds. Till recently, 4 speeds were the norm, and fourth gear was often dubbed Overdrive, as it allowed the engine to run slower in 4th gear, than it had to maintain speed in 3rd gear, drive. It's good, it increases your mileage per gallon of gas, so you save that way, but like all things more complicated, they cost more to fix when something goes wrong.

How many times does a transmission supposed to shift starting from drive in a 1988 dodge ram with a 318 motor


Depends if you have a regular 3 speed automatic, or a 3 speed with overdrive.
Put it in drive, it will start out in first gear, then shift into second at about 15 MPH, into third at about 30-35 MPH. With overdrive, fourth gear will kick in at about 45-55MPH.

That is called overdrive. You have an electronically controlled transmission, so you must have the control module checked for codes with a special tool called a scanner.

The D inside of an O is for overdrive. It is an automatic overdrive transmission. There isn't an overdrive button on it. If you want to disable the overdrive you have to shift down a gear.

I have a 1999 jeep cherokee that has intermitant transmission problems 1)shifting up it wind out to 2k-3k before shifting 2) at higher speed it feels as if it slips out of overdrive rpm increase but speed...


It will shift out of overdrive upon increasing throttle , pulling hills and so on. Your overdrive probably kicks in around 35 to 45mph and kicks back out as you increase throttle. Electrically controled speed sensor to control the response. Overwise the engine would bog down to a stall. Over drive is just that. It changes the gearing ratio to over drive meaning less then final gear 4 to 1 down to 4 to 3 etc more direct drive ratio to lessen consumtion of fuel with less stress on engine. Have shift speed sensor adjusted. Don't drive in overdrive in city if most driving is under 45mph

Transmission shifts early (Is this normal?)


the reason it might be shifting so early is because of the gear ratio in the rear end of the truck. it is common in the 2 wheel drive basic model pickup because they were designed to work not travel.

92 Jeep Cherokee losing power up hills / EVAP failure


Running out of power going up a hill is generally the fuel pump. Now days a plugged catalytic converter will do it also. The fuel evaporation test could be a bad gas cap or evaporation canister or hose somewhere. The exhaust manifold is a jeep thing, expansion and contraction, hot cold over and over. Have it welded or replaced.

your highway acceleration problem could be a coil problem. Not sure if that year of chev has coil packs or not but experienced same thing with ford 5.4L. went through 3 coil packs and did the same thing each time before biting the dust. Transmission seems to be sticking on the 1to2 upshift and could be a sticking solenoid in the valve body of the tranny. If the shifting problem persists then the tranny deffinately has to be rebuilt. It's made it quite far if tha is the original tranny, you cant expect too much life out of it if it has been worked hard. I highly doubt a fluid change would help at all. Or if you want, you can buy a can of new truck from GM for about 25 to 35 thousand bucks! Typically works great!
