Transmission skipping while in gear

My jeep seems to fall out of gear when I am driving, and when I come to a stop. She just revs like she is not in gear. The check engine light came on as well.

    I have a 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee automatic. In the past 2 months it acts like it has been coming out of drive and into 1st gear. I checked the transmission fluid, it was low, but I filled it back up. I have to pull off the road and put it in park and then back in drive and pull back on the road. That worked for awhile then it kept getting worse where it wouldn't go back into drive...I had to keep pulling off 3-5 times before it would finally engage again. Last week it got stuck in 1st gear and I had to have it hauled back. A mechanic told me it could be a speed sensor so I replaced it...and no luck. He also said it could be a transmission solenoid. Before I put more money into this does anybody have any ideas on what my problem could be?

    Yes, I checked the fluid level, and it is not low at all.

While driving my jeep seems to be shifting gears the rpms rev up and then goes back down almost as if surging I changed speed sensor as a guess so far but did not work?


old 1995
we need vastly more symptoms then that,sorry
if the engine surges, that is first. (surges in 1 gear)
but if a transmission down shifts that is normal, rpm rises
(after all its a lower gear) (higher numeric ratio)
find any machanic in town
ask him test drive it.!
10 min.later he wilt tell you
its trans issues.
or its engine, super easy this is driving.

seems you can not, and learning is 1hour in car class..or 10x that lacking facts of drive train functions.


stop guessing. why spend cash on a useless sensor now.
spend cash on $1 shop diagnosis and WIN.
i promise !

or get it scanned.
and post all those DTC errors. P0700? and more.

When in park my car wont go into gear and move, occasionally i can get it to but it skips pretty bad and doesnt want to switch gears, sometimes it clears out and runs great shifts gears well and everything...


Check your Transmission fluid level with the car warm, also if when you are driving your car, and you get a very loud whinning sound then your torque converter is shot and you will need to replace it. This sounds like a transmission issue that would be best diagnosed by either a transmission shop or a mechanic.

Transmission not shifting


its the TCM transmission computer system. there is a computer inside the console shifting unit, one on top of the steering column just behind the carpet. they will tell you to replace the computer. but which one is the issue. replace the small one at the shifter first. then if that doesnt fix it then replace the big one under the dash. the dealer wants 500 for the part alone at the shifter, and 800 for the big one with installation. its easy to install dont pay them for that. instructions are on the internet. you need to take the car back. EVERY GC has transmission electronics problems.

2000 grand cherokee transmission problem


Transmission shift points are controlled by the vehicle computer. Take your Grand Cherokee to a Jeep/Chrysler dealer to have the computer checked and possibly update the computer firmware.

Transmission stays in first gear


it would cost less to replace the transmission than to have that one rebuilt shop around and see if you cant find a trans for it and have someone put it in for you

1997 Jeep 4.0 auto transmission


Yes you have a Transmission problem that is only going to get worse.
There is nothing to do now that will solve this problem. You can pull the dipstick and look/smell the fluid to verify this but unfortunately the only thing to do now is have the transmission rebuilt/replaced.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
