First place I'd go with this is check fluid level in transmission. If full, pull transmission pan and change fluid & filter. If there is an excessive amount of fine metal in pan, or excessive amount of non magnetic debris, it is likely that internal components in unit have worn out. At this point, sometimes changing fluid MAY prolong useful trans life, but generally there is no cure for wear, other than a rebuild. There are some chemical additives out there that will restore some seal integrity...I've had good luck with Lucas products. But, as I said, once it's worn it's worn!!!

If that's a 4 wheel drive make sure the front gear ratio matches the rear ratio or you'll destroy the gears everytime. I had the same problem with my '97 Grand Cherokee..

I have an automatic trans mission that doesnt go


The forward gears slip but dose the reversr gear slip as well if not your problem is either the forward band is worn out ,,,,or the forward pump is playing up and also it could be the thing that starts it all off is the filter in the auto sump is clogged up with metal or drive band dust is the colour of the auto oil dark or dirty..
When was the trans oil last changed.

We bought a 1995 jeep grand cherokee orvis edition...the truck will not go into reverse...it makes a wierd grinding noise


Be sure that the truck is fully engaged in two wheel drive. It may have slipped out of gear on the transfer-case. Move the lever for 2 and 4 wheel drive back and forth a few times before shifting transmission.Good luck
