Your problem is inside the transmission. likely internal pressure loss from wear. There is no such thing as cheap when talking transmissions. The least costly (but the biggest risk)is to get one from a scrapyard. (even if they will replace it if bad, you still pay double labor) You know your vehicle & what kind of condition it's in otherwise. Only you can determine if it's worth doing!
Good luck.

89 Jeep Cherokee Pioneer w/AT4 auto tranny behind 4.0 engine. When cold, tranny works fine, but after 2 to 4 miles, won't engage in any gear manually or automatically, and won't engage in 4WD. After...

This sounds like all checks have been done, the oil is fine and the linkage is good, soory to say your trany is in need of a rebuild, sounds like in internal leak or weak pump, i would have a trany shop check it but i can tell you there going to say it news rebuilding. good luck.

89 Jeep 4.0L I6 AW4 tranny just decided it doesn't want to upshift past 2nd gear. Managed to get back home, and goes into reverse. What should I look at/ try first? And if that don't work whats next?

check the tps(throttle position sensor) if its going bad it will mimic trans problem,if this doesnt fix the problem then check the shifter linkage and adjustment right under the shifter by the transmission.

No reverse 1994 jeep grand cherokee larado atomatic

Well, most likely it is a burned out reverse clutch pack. Which would require a trip to a tranny shop. The sooner the better, the longer you drive with the debris in the tranny the higher the likely hood of requiring a complete rebuild instead of just the reverse clutch pack. I hope this helps please rate this thank you

2000 jeep cherokee no reverse car was put in park before complete stop

Tranny is going to need some work for sure. Sounds like the gear got stripped out when jammed into park. Sorry, no easy fix for this.

Where would the reverse band be at on a transmisson for a jeep cherokee 1986 4b4

If you are trying to replace the reverse band and dont know where it is you should not be doing it! the reverse band is inside the transmission and you need to completely disassemble the trans to get to it, you will need to rebuild the trans, if you dont know where that part is you have no business trying to rebuild a trans as you will ruin it, and that repair is better left to experts.

1997 grand cherokee limited 4x4 v8

HI, It may seem obvious, but sometimes overlooked.... have you checked the oil level, as low oil can cause some strange things to happen! My 96 4 liter would be reluctant to move sometimes, but after I topped it up, it has been fine.

Check the condition of the tranny oil on the dipstick. If it's black and smelly, the tranny clutches might be worn out. Make sure you have enough fluid in there first. Check the fluid with the car engine running and the tranny in park. The level should be between the 2 marks.
