Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The transmission will not shift into first gear and take off in over drive you have to start it in 3rd gear on the colum and take off till it shifts into 2nd and manuly shift the colum into OD to get it to shift up then when it down shifts it wiill shift thru every gear except first buy itself but when u drop into first the truck seems to be in neutral unless u restart by down shifting the colum what do u think is causing the problem and what would i need to do ot fix the problem i would greatly aprecieate it thanks
It sounds like you have a shift linkage problem. Did this start after going off road? If so, check for damage. You MIGHT be able to do some repairs yourself but would be better off going to a transmission shop. If the problem didn't start after off-roading or other damage, there are several possible issues that could be causing the problem: 1) A broken band; 2) a bad vacuum modulator; 3) leaking vacuum lines; 4) blockage or broken springs in the valve body. In any case, you are better off going to a reputable transmission shop.
