If unit has been neglected, my first thought is serves you right! Maintaining this stuff is essential.
That being said, change the fluid and filter. Use a container of Lucas transmission additive, along with the new oil. Do not expect a miracle. If it does help, change the fluid again in about two weeks. You don't have to drop pan if it has a drain plug when changing the second time. Put additive in on both changes! Likely you have a bad varnish buildup on the insides of the valve body.. you must be a really good tech to take one apart to clean it, so do not even think about it!!! Most shops do not advise changing fluid on neglected units but, if it already is malfunctioning you have everything to gain and nothing to loose at this point!
Good luck

drop the pan and change the filter and gasket, that might buy you some time if it is not too far gone.
i don't know how many quarts of transmission fluid are required for this task but the part store should have it in their computer

My 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee transmission slips in overdrive


sounds like a possible shift solenoid. If it's due for a fluid change, do that and add a container of lucas trans conditioner. Likely you have a drain plug on the pan so if the fluid was recently serviced, just drain a quart out and replace with the additive, then top off.
If the condition does not change within a week, likely you will need better diagnosis from a reputable trans shop.

1995 grand cherokee shifts hard from 1st to second and from second to third. Shifts fine from then on.


did this just start ? try a fluid change - ? not the TOTAL fluid change - but the kind that removes the pan and replaces the filter - just be 1000 percent sure to see the pan drop - -otherwise go somewhere else

also - take down the vin number - many are on the registration -- then call the local dealer and ask about recalls -- some last the life of the vehicle

1995 jeep grand cherokee auto trans prob


sounds like the transmission is in "limp"mode it allows you to drive even though there is a problem with the transmission,the code 21 is probably a transmission manufature control code and not engine go to autozone and they can scan it for free,if you just had transmission fluid changed recently if you used anything other than what the manufature calls for like atf+4 then this is your problem,flush the system and do a fluid and filter change with correct fluid as by what the owners manual,or dealer calls for,don't rely on autozone to get it right.
