I have a 93 jeep Cherokee, it will move in 4wh and in 4wl but will not go back into 2wd?


Hello guy
try posting what 4wd system you have,? first.
command trac or select track, (the latter is full time)
part time or the full time system,
we cant guess it....
read the operators guide first, if a part time system only
as i suspect, stop driving on dry pavement.
it's only for ice, or dirt. part time. part time is not a full time system.
Command-Trac
shifting to 4wd on dry (means no ice) pavement causes, drive line wind up! and the gears to lockup. (see steering get tight in turns?> and is dangerous to drive it like this , you, me and the box)
posted here 100s of times.

http://www.rubicon-trail.com/4WD101/driveline-bind.html


the non grand Cherokee. early

had these choices
  • 1987-2001: New Process NP231 Command-Trac, part-time only, 2.72:1 ratio with low range
NP231 has the following settings: 2HI, 4HI, N, 4LO
  • 1987-2001: New Process NP242 Selec-Trac, full-time or part-time, 2.72:1 ratio with low range
NP242 has the following settings: 2HI, 4 full-time, 4 part-time, N, 4LO


as you can see you need to first know, what NP box you have or
photo your shift lever for 4wd, an post it and we tell you.

more facts, on select trac. (totally unlike command trac)
Selec-Trac locking hub is used on 4WD Cherokee. Selec-Trac
utilizes a non-disconnect front axle. Engagement of 2WD or 4WD is
accomplished at transfer case by means of mechanical shift linkage.
System allows full or part time 4WD. Selec-Trac can be shifted into
2WD or 4WD modes from inside the vehicle at any speed.
unquote
next from the service manual,
4WD TO 2WD
1) Place mode select switch in 2WD position. Transfer case
should shift to 2WD and not allow shifting into 4WD or LO range. Axle
should shift after transfer case shifts.
2) To determine if front axle has completed a shift out of
4WD into 2WD, position mode select switch back to 4WD position while
operating vehicle at slow speed. If vehicle shifts into 2WD, axle will
ratchet. If shift is not completed, transfer case will shift into 4WD
and hissing sound will come from mode select switch.
end quote.

if unsure read the FSM book its free.
shows you both systems and how to diagnose it.

in the box, click Cherokee,,then click 1993, and behold.
the real deal.

The NP231 transfer case, named "command-trac"
or
The NP242 transfer case, names "selec-trac"

if select trac, do say so
if old command trac, part time 4wd you messed up.
never put car in 4wd on dry pavement.

driving on what.?
dirt.
ice
or dry pavement. (dry means no ICE !!!)

Will a 95 jeep cherakee auto trans fit in 98 jeep cheokee


if your engine is AMC I6 high output version, it may wont fit without doing small modifications. if it is not high output version it will. transfer case differs model to model. np242 selectrac and np231command trac. they have little difference on 4wd systems. all have 2wd option.

actually it is supposed to have same transmission versions between 1988 to 2001. Aisin-Warner AW4.

please try to switch back to 2wd mode in neutral position. then move car for few hundred meters. if this wont help you need to check the linkage mechanism on np242 transfer case.

Can i change from a 4 wheel transmission to a 2 wheel transmission


without changing transfer case it is not possible.* (normal circumstances)

what you need is NP242 or NP231 selectrac /command trac transfer cases from 4.0 G.cherokee or Cherokee. those allows you to select 2wd for all time driving and let you decide on mode when 4wd is needed.

also you can test to see how it feels by removing front shaft for trial purposes but you will be loosing power because all time transfer case distributes the traction over front and rear.( do not try this when driving in traffic)

*I also heard that it is possible to convert all time mode to all time 2wd but keeping 4wd low intact.( i wonder how realiable the result is though)

I have a 2000 jeep wrangler, 4.0L 6 cyl. what would be the fluid capacities for the transmission and the transfer case?


If you have the automatic trans it takes 3.8 litres of fluid if doing a service with the filter. If you drain the torque converter (usually only on a tranny swap or new install) it takes 4.7 litres if it is the 30RH tranny and 6.4 litres if it is the 32RH tranny (call the dealer with your vin number to find out which one you have).

If you have a manual trans it takes 2.3 litres.

As for the transfer case there are 4 different transfer cases used that year.

NP242 takes 1.4 litres
NP247 and NP249 take 1.6 litres
NP213 takes 1 litre

Again you can call the dealer with your vin to see what transfer case you have if you don't know.
