When i slow down to 20 mph as it shifts down it clunks. and as i am parked and i try to put it in gear it makes the same clunk sound.


it sounds like you may have a bad universal joint in one of the drive shafts,more likely in the main shaft that runs from the transmission to the rear differential.

SOUND LIKE TRANSMISSION NEED TRANSMISSION FLUID + FILTER CHANGE.THE FRONT BAND NEEDS ADJUSTING.ALSO CHECK YOUR THROTTLE SHIFT CABLE AT THE THROTTLE BODY ACCELERATOR LEVER MAKE SURE ITS NOT MISROUTED OR LOOSE AND CHECK THROTTLE CABLE ON SIDE TRANSMISSION SEE IF ITS BROKEN OUT THE TRANSMISSION. THAT WILL EFFECT UP SHIFTS OR OVER DRIVE YOU NEED THAT CLIMBING A HILL.

Clunking in rear end of 1997 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4.0L


chances are it's either in the transfer case or differential. Since it's easy to remove the rear cover on the differential, I' d look there first. If you remove the driveshaft and get both rear wheels off the ground you can turn the assembly and inspect the gears. If it's not in the gears, then you know where to look....And, check those u joints too!

Clunking front hubs


usually the noise in the front end is the u-joints or cv joints out towards the tires.

I have a 1997 Jeep Cherokee, stuck in 2nd...


all answers USA on USA cars,only. (exports are diffr)
so if you didnt scan it when it fails, how would you ever find the truth? (if no errors. then it can be pure mechanical failure)
the car has TCM a tranny brain.
its covered in the SM, read that chapter yet.
on newer cars if the Tranny overheats or engine both can go to LIMPHOME< but your car is not even close to new, is it?
Jeep calls that LIMP-in.
my guess (sux) is its the 4.0L engine with matching AW4 box
Aisin-Warner
it wise to know whats there first. before trying to understand it
a FACT !
so did you google search AW4 boxes. , i bet not.
but they are unique. as all different boxes are.

is the CEL lamp glowing running, Check engine lamp
PDC fuse 16 ok (4L,aw4) TCM power, must be good at all times.

is the throttle valve cable to transmission stuck out?
if it does, the TCM and trans will either go nuts, or shift way late.

http://etereman.com/blog/fiat-transmission/the-popular-aw4-automatic-transmission-and-common-problems-associated-with-it






the TCM shifts using solenoids, we check that the signals to said solenoid actually do go to the correct voltage levels
in to 3rd. (you said stuck in 2nd)
if that is ok, then the TCM did it job and the problem is INSIDE the box. end story, we use remote test meters to monitor wires driving.

2004 Jeep Wrangler - Clunking Noise when shifting out of Park


It could be lash in the differential which is normal, but it could also be a loose u-joint in the driveshaft. Check the rear driveshaft u-joints.
