I have a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. When the accelerator is depressed hard (passing or going uphill) the vehicle downshifts into too low of a gear. The nose will dip down and it will rev high.


this is normal for the trans to downshift as the engine and trans are working together to handle the acceleration of your car and as your car's speed increases the trans will adjust again (EG: shift gears) this is more of a weight to acceleration sort of thing or rather weight to power sort of thing

Idles high from first to second gear .


Define idles high like its going high rpms before shifting or the engine itself is high reving if its high rpming when shifting its mostly you tranny going out you can try tranny fix oil I used it on my truck when it had shifting problems and ive had no problems since it takes a few days to work though and if its the motor itself it could be a lot of things but I dont know much of the problem based on what you told us

Without getting into transmission diagnostics that would require special tools, you can check the transmission fluid level. You could also drain and replace the trans fluid to see if this solves the problem. Changing the fluid is considered regular maintence, and will not hurt a thing. The trans will benifit from fresh fluids in the long run also.

The condition you reported is either a control problem or "flaring" both are pressure related. I suggest you have a reliable trans shop test drive it. If it's a control problem (late shifting) there are external adjustments that can be made. If it is flaring, that is internal and may require a rebuild.

Will not go into drive or any other gear


Sounds like the transmission is worn out and will need a complete rebuild. I'd guess $2-3k. Sorry.
