Question about 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Hi. I just bought a 1999 jeep grand cherokee yesterday and I notice that it seems to be leaking transmission fluid possibly from the front end...just a little bit. Any ideas what this might be? I took it to a local transmission shop for a free estimate and they tried to convince me I need a new engine and a new transmission...$8000.00 is the estimate. However, it runs strong, no strange noises and shifts just fine.

Just bought a 1999 4wd jeep grand cherokee with 215k miles on it, what is some things i should do/replace to this jeep?


Check all the fluids and make sure they are good. i.e. diffs. oil, transmission, coolant, transfer case fluid, air filter. Use high mileage oil. Check the belt for cracks, usually it will start squealing a bit when it needs to be replaced. Tightening it will not help.

2000 jeep grand cherokee 2wd that is leaking transmission fluid and i was told by a friend that the 1999 - 2000 jeeps all do it?


No, they all don't do it. The pan gasket may need changed, but this will burn up the transmission if the level gets too low.

Possible transmission problem?...Jeep Grand Cherokee 1999...seems like engine disengages or slips...only happens when all of these conditions are happening, 1. accelerating 2. turning to the left only 3....


Pretty good chance the trans is low on fluid...have you checked that? Otherwise, it is possible that you have a worn shaft seal that when side-loaded it could be allowing fluid to internally bypass. As that condition is extremely rare, I'd go with checking the fluid and possibly changing it and the filter before worrying too much about it, but you need to check that now as each time it happens it removes important material from the internal clutches.
Also...if low, check for leaks...fluid went somewhere!

Could be the front main seal or you may want to check the oil pan bolts to see if they have backed off.If the leak is transmission fluid then check the transmission lines and the radiator.

Transfer case? Front diff? HELP!!


Sounds like a transfer case problem. But I can't verify that from here. Coupler is inside the unit on the output shaft and needs teardown to get to it.

HI, this is just a pan seal that as failed to do its job due to age or defective nature. Once this faulty pan gasket is changed, the leak will stop.

please rate and have a great day.
