Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Hello. sometimes my jeep won't go in reverse for a few seconds after i shift. once it does it feels like it jumps off the ground and into gear. also, during stop and go city traffic it will stay still until i give it gas and then slams into gear or simply stalls when i don't give it gas quick enough.
This may be obvious but have you checked the fluid level? Remember to check it when the vehicle is at running temperature, after driving for a while. Place it in park, run the selector slowly down to your lowest gear, then back up to park. Leave it running, in park with the parking brake set (safety first!) and check the fluid level. Add fluid if necessary and then test it. Also, it's possible you may have a torn/broken transmission mount. Believe it or not, they can cause a jumping sensation. In fact, it's even possible for the transmission to bounce up and hit the bottom of the passenger compartment. Not quite the same thing, but some early 80s Camaros and Trans Ams had issues with stalling due to binding from a broken transmission mount. Just a thought, but you might want to take a look at that mount and inspect it carefully to see if the rubber portion looks like it might be torn or damaged.
