That's called flairing and is not a good thing (indicates pressure loss inside unit) If you haven't changed the fluid in a long time sometimes a fluid and filter change with an additive such as lucas conditioner may help. Generally though, there is no real chemical fix that replaces worn parts.Depending upon where and how worn your unit is, sometimes doing this will prolong use for many months. Or, it will have no effect at all. Sealing will not happen overnight it took a long time to get this way.If you need an immediate fix, have it rebuilt.

How can you tell what trans is in 01 grand cherokee laurado 4.0


Here is an article I found talking about the Transmission. The second generation Grand Cherokee: 1999-2004 Jeep WJ The first Grand Cherokee was redesigned in 1999, for lower production cost and greater performance and reliability; it was Chrysler's first use of an electronic bus to replace individual wires throughout the body.

Jeep five-speed automatic transmission

An all-new, electronically-controlled transmission with five forward ratios including an alternate second gear ratio for improved performance for passing and better fuel economy is available with the V-8 only, and was designed specifically for Jeeps.

The transmission features unique characteristics such as a tall, 3.00:1 first gear that gives the driver better initial acceleration. Real-time driver adaptive shifting fine-tunes the shift pattern to the driver, while an alternate second gear ratio gives the driver five forward ratios. During acceleration, second gear has a ratio of 1.67. Depending on speed and throttle position, both this gear and an alternate 1.50 second gear ratio are available for kick-down operation, making the down-shift smoother. Its reverse gear ratio is equal to the first gear ratio, to allow for heavier loads.

Other features include three planetary gear sets that combine the widest range of gear ratios available in any transmission in its class. Combined with precise step selections, this brings smooth shifts and maximum power and optimal fuel economy.

The transmission is built at the Indiana Transmission Plant in Kokomo, Indiana, in an all-new 1.2-million square-foot (110,000 m2) facility.

My 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. 5.2L. It sometimes wont shift from first gear to second gear. If and when it does it will keep shifting as it should until you shut it off. Then it may or may not do it...


I had a similar problem for months with my 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0L. Mine used to take a long time to shift and usually wouldn't shift until speeds got up to about 50mph or so for about a mile and a half then would work good afterwards until I shut it off and allow it to sit for a few hours then I would have a repeat of the same problem. I was about to replace a relay in the tranny when someone suggested that I replace the fluid and filter. I took it to Quick lube shop and had the filter and fluid replaced. Still running like a charm going on five months now.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Transmission Problems Wont shift


Tried changing the fluid? Often gummy deposits get gummier when cold and take a while to free up with temp increase. Of course, if you are good at it, you can rebuild it but I'd try that first. Generally I use lucas conditioner with B&M or Amsoil synthetic fluid in mine...seems to do the job.
