1999 jeep grand cherokee transmission

Occasionally when I take longer trips with my jeep the transmission slips out of over drive and sticks in drive. If I stop it starts back out in drive not 1st gear. If I pull over and turn off the engine wait a few minutes and start it up again it drives fine sometimes for 5 minutes sometimes for the rest of the trip, sometimes it doesn't happen at all sometimes it won't stop happening and I just have to drive it stuck in drive.

This is called limp mode chrysler did this to protect the transmission without leaving the owner stranded by the road,a few things will cause this mainly putting the wrong fluid in the transmission,they use only atf+4,or the govenor pressure sensor is acting up which should cause a check engine light to come on,or the transmission just needs a fluid and filter change,should be done every 2yrs or 36k miles,due the fluid and filter change about 40.00 but if you have the wrong fluid then the whole system needs to be flushed and refilled-transmission-torque convertor,radiator and cooler if equipped and all lines.

4 wheel drive quit at some time didn't know it...drives fine only rear wheels pulling..could it be electrical ??


I hava a 1999 Grand cherokee loredo V8 with full time 4wheel drive. when the rear tires slip I am hearing a poping noise in the front end when the 4wheel drive engages. I was told by one person that it could be the chain in the transfer case slipping but I was told by a jeep salesman that this year jeep did not have a chain. Could this be the CV joints in the front axels?

1999 Jeep grand cherokee... hesitates to change gears until motor runs for about 15 minutes


There's a good chance that it's just getting worn. Most people neglect their transmission service which should be done about every 30,000 miles or so. Pick up a product made by "Lucas" transmission stop slip and repair. It's about $10.00 per bottle, but has amazing results. Try it and get back to me as I check regularly for comments that may go further.

Hope that helps, thanks for using FixYa.
