Question about 1999 Jeep Cherokee
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.
