I would have it checked at the jeep dealer sounds like the transmission controller has an error in it. They can get diagnostic info out of that system and give you an idea of whats wrong

SOURCE: automatic transmission

First, before doing anything, have the shop that worked on it go back over what they did (you did not say, but I assume trans was serviced?) It's possible that something got disconnected, or was inadvertently left disconnected.You can look yourself, for any hanging plugs etc. Sometimes if unit was long past its regular service interval valves etc, inside trans can become sticky, sometimes worsening after service. If nothing external can be found, I'd opt for a good trans additive such as that offered by Lucas. You do not want to use anything harsh or it may make the problem worse.(I use this stuff routinely, even when there is no problem...Maybe why my stuff lasts over 300,000miles.
Good luck

The first thing I have to ask you is When was the last time the transmission was serviced? Transmission fluid and filter change?

My 05 Jeep Grand Cherokee just whined loudly while driving, and while in gear, doesn't shift/drive, any ideas what it might be?


IMHO, Jeep/Chrysler hasn't had a great rep for the transmissions within the past 20 years. In most instances, transmissions should last the entire lifetime of the vehicle when cared for properly. Checking fluid levels regularly, as well as following manufacturer service intervals make the difference. Keep in mind that transmission fluid should be changed just like your oil, but on a very different schedule.The Grand Cherokee being a model plagued with transmission problems especially if you have the four-wheel drive "Quadratrac" transfer-case package. I am not sure sure if this is a "maintenance free" (I hate that term) or "sealed for life transmission" and case. If it is, I feel very sorry for you because like many others, you have been mislead. Transmission fluid does in fact have a service life and the fluid certainly takes a beating. Not only does it lubricate your transmission as oil does for an engine, it acts as a coolant, and it is also a hydraulic fluid to assist automatic shifting in the case of automatic transmissions. Transmission fluid should be changed because old fluid loses viscosity and can become "dirty" due to natural surface oxidation of internal parts. Unfortunately, usually by the time a transmission starts "acting up" or starts making noise the damage is already done. If you have an automatic, the whole transmission will have to be redone or replaced. If it is a manual trans its possible certain components can be replaced. I have had a girlfriend and co-worker who both had these Jeeps with automatic and wound up ditching them because of tranny or xfer-case issues. One jeep started having trans problems at 70,000 miles. :-(

Won't go into 4 low


Have you tried shifting the automatic transmission to neutral, or if manual transmission- place shift lever to neutral position, then shift the transfer case to neutral position wait a couple seconds then try shifting to 4 low- if you have manual hubs, engage those last. This removes most of the potential mechanical resistance that should allow for the transfer case to shift.

If it still will not go into 4 low you may be dealing with damaged teeth, bent shift dog or worn internal bearings inside the transfer case. As I recall, that was NOT a shift on the fly transfer case.

I have a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, 4.0 engine automatic 4WD, my transmission began slipping and not wanting to shift into drive or overdrive. I added a bottle of Lucas Transmission Fix and it began...


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
