Question about 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee
What can be done to fix this?
If shift is delayed, it may be due to either temperature or varnish in unit. Has the oil been changed in unit at regular intervals? Low temps with even slight varnish buildup can give poor shifts, but it usually clears up as it warms up. If unit is "flairing" (engine speed increases with no shift & slight sensation of power loss ) then shifts, this can be the result of internal wear. If trans oil is very old and dirty, change oil & filter.(if there is an excessive amount of fine metal or non magnetic debris in unit, likely there is internal damage) If fluid is clean and unburned, check to see if your vehicle is equipped with an electronic shift module (have someone check codes to test). Otherwise, unless you are a technician, bring it to a reliable transmission shop.
