Get a filter and fluid change in the transmission.
that 5 speed automatic is tricky.

do a code scan and see if there is a vacuum leak telling it to shift too late

2004 grand cherkee doesn't shift and then shifts hard. Only happens when turning left. Sometimes rear tire on drivers side squeels when goes into gear. Thanks


You have binding in your drivetrain, Make sure all your tyres are the same size and not work unevenly, You can get friction modifiers that help smoother shifting, also you may want to check your diff oil levels.

1994 jeep cherokee linkage


Problem sounds like an internal pressure problem not a cable. If you are able to shift into all gears using the shifter, the linkage is being moved properly. It cannot "come out of gear" by way of the shifter.
In reality, if you were able to manually put the shift lever on the transmission into any particular gear without any shift cable at all attached, it would stay in that selected position forever till you got under there and moved it again. Depending upon what transmission you are using you may have a throttle cable running between the trans and throttle lever on the throttle body...this may have something to do with your problem but would also affect shift points. Any electronic shift controls are also suspect at this point. have it checked by a competent shop. In not being there myself, I can only offer my thoughts on what I would test going into the problem...after testing a better evaluation can be made. Good luck...Hope it's something simple.

2000 jeep grand cherokee laredo hesitates in 2nd gear when cold


Is it manual or auto trans? If manual the gear lube is thicker when cold and the syncronizers tend to stick and not slide free for grind free shifting or for locking into gear.
If Auto trans if the jeep is warmed up setting then cycle the gears before driving. If that helps then the fluid is not getting through the valve body properly. It could be metal in the body or filter or cold seals are letting fluid by til the seals warm, expand and hold pressure. I'm assuming trans fluid is good, not old. One item that can lead to poor cold shift in an auto trans is a bad torque convertor. Since it seems to be a second gear issue the second section of the trans could have a bad seal. In an auto trans I'd take to a shop and have a cold pressure test done. They will tell which one is the problem.

Check fluid to make sure it's full. Did you check to make sure that when you move the shifter, the transmission shift lever on the case moves? Assuming it's an automatic, if fluid is full and linkage moves properly, has fluid been changed? If not, do it! (including filter) If when changing fluid, you find an excessive amount of fine metal or clutch material in pan, chances are the unit has worn out and needs rebuild, If everything inside is clean & good then finish with change and check results.If still having same problem it's likely internal or if electrically shifted, a shift module problem etc.

Left hand turn transmission disengages itself shifts into nuetral


Sounds very much like low fluid. It is possible that trans sustained some internal problem from impact, but I'd check fluid first... If further attention is necessary don't forget to inform your ins co right away!!
