    When was fuel filter last changed, if not for a while, that's a good place to start. Are you getting any trouble codes, check engine lights, service engine lights? may be smart to stop by autozone & have free scan done for codes then go from there.

Transmission is likely reacting to poor engine performance. Check cap, rotor & wires...Check fuel filter (if they haven't been changed in a really long time, don't even look...just change them). If you find nothing unusual, check codes (if any)
I think you most likely have an ignition problem at this point but you have to do some "hands on" checking to determine what's going on...
Good luck

Wont go in reverse how to adjust band for reverse


what makes you think there are bands. ?
did you look in the FSM>
did you post exact transmission in your car , ?
here is a free look 1993 chickodee.
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

32RH (has bands) page 96 and 97 (band adj)
or
AW-4 no bands. uses solenoid clutch packs. electric.
see them both and all tests and settings.
is yours a TCM shifted ? tranny, yes then why not scan it.
or the flash code procedure. page 174


the TCM cars will flash OD lamp or drive lamps or something
to tell you its got error codes.
get them.

best of best. aw-4
(see the manual mode test. many cars have this, not just jeeps)
may TCM tranny cars, (RTM read the FSM and learn this)

http://mikestrawbridge.com/blog/2011/09/aw4-troubleshooting/

hint 2:
make sure the tranny ground stap is not broken.
if it is, it will never ever shift right or reliably
true for just about any TCM car.
see one guy last week bought new tranny ,and never used
a voltmeter on the solinoids. had 12v casing.. a shame.

wrong tranny.
the TCM shifts based in this , so
take both tranny to any tranny shop
and say make best out of 2, many can.
you could look in both FSM and see what parts need change out.
CASINGS.
the day of simple swaps are over...
electronic shifter trans are complex. and today even more so.
with ESP, and ETC. far worse........

you should have (sorry) joined Top Jeep forum.

How to put a 95 or 96 jeep cherokee sport in 4 wheel drive. handle is left of the gear shift.


You can change on the run but as a general rule stop to change to 4wd.except 2wd to 4wd high.Just slow down to about 15mph and back off the gas.
2wd high is normal running
4wd high(is full time 4wd)this is slippery roads or muddy roads.
4wd high lock For bad and slower slippery and rocky roads.
4wd low lock is for extreme 4wd conditions
Don't use the last 2 on the main roads or transfercase will be damaged
Hope this helps

I have a 1999 jeep cherokee that has intermitant transmission problems 1)shifting up it wind out to 2k-3k before shifting 2) at higher speed it feels as if it slips out of overdrive rpm increase but speed...


It will shift out of overdrive upon increasing throttle , pulling hills and so on. Your overdrive probably kicks in around 35 to 45mph and kicks back out as you increase throttle. Electrically controled speed sensor to control the response. Overwise the engine would bog down to a stall. Over drive is just that. It changes the gearing ratio to over drive meaning less then final gear 4 to 1 down to 4 to 3 etc more direct drive ratio to lessen consumtion of fuel with less stress on engine. Have shift speed sensor adjusted. Don't drive in overdrive in city if most driving is under 45mph
