1995 Grand Cherokee 4.0 Transmission..


I think your best bet would be to take it in and have it serviced . They will change fluid , filter and adjust the bands . That might be all it needs.

1999 Jeep grand cherokee limited with Quadra trac only works as two wheel drive when all wheel is selected and will not go into 4-lo. Sounds like it isn't engaging fully and feels like the lever should go...


Could you tell me what selection you have on your 4x4 shifter?

You have 4 high (full time) N 4 Low and nothing else?

Quadra only sends power to the front axle when it is needed, it uses a hydraulic unit that senses slip then send power to the front.

You also need to make sure your getting it in to gear right, for me I found that getting to 4 low can be hard as they tend to bind, move the 4x4 shifter to N take your foot off the brake and pull it into 4 low, do the same getting back out.

I have owned every 4x4 Jeep T case in Grands from 93 to 02 they offer fantastic traction and options and are strong.

Make sure your T case fluid is full, if you have never changed it DO SO, as dirty fluid plays hell on them, if you do have Quadra trac you need to get the correct fluid for the case, go to your Jeep dealer and get it, DONT put trans fluid in as this dose not work right with the system.

If you want "Locked" run the system in 4 low, as heavy off road in 4high with Quadra is not the best for heavy off road, use 4 low to that.

If you need more help just ask, I hope this worked.

I have a 93 jeep grand cherokee laredo it has 4all time neutral and 4lo should i keep it in 4all time all the time or does that ruin it


Yes, Your Jeep is what is known as a Quadra-Trac. This type of cherokee is an all wheel drive model. 4 wheel all time is for everyday driving, Neutral completely dissconects the drive train from the transmission and will not move at all. 4 wheel low is more for off road conditions where traction is compromised. 4 wheel low should NEVER be used at speed above 15 miles an hour.

To the guy above: 4 wheel drive is designed for low end pulling power and safer handling on slippery road conditions. 4 wheel drive has NOTHING to do with how fast you go or how fast you stop. Don't post a comment if you clearly don't know the correct information.

I am having several problems with my 93 Grand Cherokee Laredo 4 wheel all the time. First, every time I drive, it seems like it slips out of 4 wheel drive high into neutral, then we have to come to a stop...


On your first problem, I would say the transfer case is gonna need some work if not totally rebuilt. You may try checking the fluid in the transfer case to start with. If it is low, the transfer case could be overheating and causing it to jump out of gear. I would say the damage is already done though. On your second problem, check the sensor in your washer fluid resevior, it has probably gone bad. As for the display not working all the time it is probably going out. The driver information display on the grand cherokees is notoriuos for going bad as they age. After 16 years it is probably going to need to be replaced and they are not cheap. Try a salvage or junk yard first. I also have a 93 Grand Cherokee and I have had to replace the instrument cluster. My speedometer stopped working and then the cluster began blowing the fuse over and over. I went to a salvage yard and found one for 25 bucks. Unfortunately, there are no easy solutions to the problems your are having. Good luck to ya. Hopefully you get everything situated. Jeeps are great vehicles to own and they will stand the test of time with the proper maintenance and and a little TLC.

Computer light says service 4 wheel drive switch


According to the mechanic who works on my 94 Jeep it's one of three things:
1) Corrosion on the connector to the switch (which is located on top of the transfer case).
2) A bad switch. Part cost about $22.00 or,
3) A bad console display. he says they have had a fair number of console display units fail.

'93 Jeep Gr. Cherokee 4x4 switch warning


this switch does not switch the vehicle from 2 wheel to 4 wheel drive. Grand cherokee have a manual shifter for that. The 4x4 switch is on top of the transfer case and tells the driver information display what 4 wheel drive mode the Jeep is in. ex..if you have selectrac, in 2 wheel the rear wheels on the display will light up, in 4 wheel all 4 wheels will light up, in 4 wheel low it will have the word low lit up in yellow. This is the only purpose for this switch and a bad one will not affect the functioning of the 4 wheel drive. Check out Rockauto.com and a new one can be purchased for about 35 dollars. If you call the dealership and ask for a 4 wheel drive switch, they will have no clue what you are talking about. The actual name is " 4WD indicator light switch"

AS ALWAYS. Loud noise coming from front differential.


Have you change the differential fluid? If not,That's a good place to start.If you have, you may need to repack or replace the wheel bearings.

Also,The front wheels are acting normal,That is what happens with a limited slip differential.
