2001 Jeep G/Cherokee TD - auto g/box loss of reverse gear

My 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Turbo Diesel lost reverse gear, all forward gears are fine, except overdrive is noisy. If I select reverse, it feels like it wants to move, but like the clutch is slipping. The vehicle has done 230,000 km's. Had the electronic controls of the g/box checked by the agents and according to them there is no fault.

Could this be a solenoid or hydraulic pack problem ?

Regards,

    I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee that lost reverse yesterday. When I shift into reverse it feels like it is shifting, but nothing happens. All other gears work fine. I checked trans fluid and it looks and smells clean. Any suggestions???

How can you tell what trans is in 01 grand cherokee laurado 4.0


Here is an article I found talking about the Transmission. The second generation Grand Cherokee: 1999-2004 Jeep WJ The first Grand Cherokee was redesigned in 1999, for lower production cost and greater performance and reliability; it was Chrysler's first use of an electronic bus to replace individual wires throughout the body.

Jeep five-speed automatic transmission

An all-new, electronically-controlled transmission with five forward ratios including an alternate second gear ratio for improved performance for passing and better fuel economy is available with the V-8 only, and was designed specifically for Jeeps.

The transmission features unique characteristics such as a tall, 3.00:1 first gear that gives the driver better initial acceleration. Real-time driver adaptive shifting fine-tunes the shift pattern to the driver, while an alternate second gear ratio gives the driver five forward ratios. During acceleration, second gear has a ratio of 1.67. Depending on speed and throttle position, both this gear and an alternate 1.50 second gear ratio are available for kick-down operation, making the down-shift smoother. Its reverse gear ratio is equal to the first gear ratio, to allow for heavier loads.

Other features include three planetary gear sets that combine the widest range of gear ratios available in any transmission in its class. Combined with precise step selections, this brings smooth shifts and maximum power and optimal fuel economy.

The transmission is built at the Indiana Transmission Plant in Kokomo, Indiana, in an all-new 1.2-million square-foot (110,000 m2) facility.

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee makes a lot of noise when selecting Reverse. Forward gear okay. Now, reverse doesn't work and it sounds like the transmission is coming apart.


Your automatic transmission has an internal low and indirect clutch. The indirect clutch is what's used when your vehicle is in reverse. You might have a heavy jerking when you put it into gear that feels like vehicle got hit by another or loud rattling or chattering in gears. It very well may be coming apart as you think and soon, so I'd recommend taking it to your local transmission shop to inspect and test it and they can give you a more detailed idea of what it would take to fix it. good luck

Jeep was doing ok ,as i came up our mountian i felt two or three small jerks,when i was close to the top it just would not go forward anymore,i tried every gear drive 1st,2nd and reverse,I also tried...


it sounds like your automatic transmission quit his job. How much miles are on the clock? If more than 150.000 and you pulled trailers, climb mountains etc. this will be the first choice. Let the engine idle, push the brakes and check if the car will go in any gear. If this will happen only in reverse gear, your auto trans need to be replaces. You can use a rebuilt auto trans.

Vibration when using reverse gear .when shifting to reverse gear i feel vibration like oil pump vibration


Have your motor mounts checked very soon. This only shows in reverse because reverse causes a backward torque than the engine does in forward gear.
