Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I have a problem with my gear box i have a jeep grand cherokee

When i start the car it seems to struggle moving off in drive.  I have to put the car into first gear then once it has been in first gear for a few seconds I can then put it into to drive and it is fine.  Each time I have to stop or slow down I have to go through this action. If i just leave it in drive it just crawls along.  Apart from this the car is fine.

Your transmission apparently is not downshifting properly. From your description, it sounds as though it is in 2nd or 3rd gear, which is why it is slow to accelerate. When you shift into 1st, it is starting off in 1st gear as it should. You probably should have a transmission shop check it out. Check engine light on?

    I'm sorry if I upset you. Transmission problems sometimes trigger the check engine light. I asked in the last line if the check engine light is on, as it would help to identify the exact problem. So, I will ask again, is the check engine light on? It would also be helpful to know what engine your Jeep has (6 or 8cylinder?) Thanks.

SOURCE: Can a Jeep Grand Cherokee feel safe round corners on tarmac?

Those have coil spring suspension at all four corners. If the springs are weak it can give you a bit more body roll than you'd like to see. Make sure you have four good quality shocks as well. In extreme cases you may want to install the police version of the sway bars on there which are generally larger in diameter and offer more roll resistance as well.

94 jeep grand cherokee, trannys slippg in 1s gear, added lucas stop slip, started next day, drve a few feet and it wont engage.......


Transmission might be fried. One suggestion, did you try putting it in 4WD and trying that? I had a Jeep come in, same thing, wont move, ended up being a blown transfer case. Put it in 4 hi or low, and see if it will go into gear and move. Long shot, but worth a try.

HI, It may seem obvious, but sometimes overlooked.... have you checked the oil level, as low oil can cause some strange things to happen! My 96 4 liter would be reluctant to move sometimes, but after I topped it up, it has been fine.
