Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I can hear the motor running but nothing moving
Absolutely, if you are hearing grinding noises, that's the internal gears. Also, if you put the car into Drive, Reverse and it takes a moment to go into gear, that's also a sign of a transmission going.
Just a FYI about transmissions, if you purchase a new car and plan on keeping your car for a while, I recommend changing the fluid every 15,000 miles. The dealer recommends 30,000 miles. But here is the kicker, you can acutally do harm in changing the fluid if you haven't done the normal maintenance scheudle fluid changes (every 15K or 30K). The reason is because as old fluid breaks down and if you don't change it and then put new fluid in after 80.000 miles, the new fluid become too corrosive and acutally breaks down the seals and causes slippage in the transmission.
I'm not sure of what your mileage is, but it sounds like the transmission is about to go based on what you are saying.
