SOURCE: grand cherokee wont shift out of first gear

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.

Check the Trans fluid level with it running and at operating temperature. Jeep NAG1 transmissions are known to have the input electric seal leak trans fluid. Not an exspensive fix add Mopar ATF4 and then relace the guild seal.

SOURCE: My 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo doesnt shift

From your explainations your vehicle is due for a transmission filter kit and fluid change. Be sure to spray out the transmission very well after you drop the trans pan w/example you can use a couple cans of brake cleaner spray

SOURCE: What would cause a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with a 4.0 L Engine not to shift from 1st gear to 2nd gear 20% of the time

Hi there:
By your description solution #1 the transmission pressure switch is bad or not pluged in; did you have the computer scanned for the transmission code?

This is the first step, scanned the TCM (Transmission Control Module) to know fault codes stored there, with this clue could thnik in a second choice.

Hope helps.

2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee shifting problem from 2nd to 3rd


Check the kick down cable. If it sticks the transmission won't shift. I sprayed WD-40 on both the top and bottom connectors , and it worked like a charm. It's alot cheaper them spending 2000 on a new transmission you don't really need.

My transmisson makes a weezing sound when im at low speed


You sure its the transmission? Wheezing sound is usually the catylitic converter becoming plugged. Also...at 3-5K rpm you are not idling, you are reving the engine...(in that case, trans may be slipping or flairing between shifts, unless the unit is staying in one gear and just delaying shift till you reach that rpm. actual shift point should be close to 2,000rpm) I'd check the cat first.

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.

1997 jeep cherokee gears stick between 2nd and 3rd gear


If shift is delayed, it may be due to either temperature or varnish in unit. Has the oil been changed in unit at regular intervals? Low temps with even slight varnish buildup can give poor shifts, but it usually clears up as it warms up. If unit is "flairing" (engine speed increases with no shift & slight sensation of power loss ) then shifts, this can be the result of internal wear. If trans oil is very old and dirty, change oil & filter.(if there is an excessive amount of fine metal or non magnetic debris in unit, likely there is internal damage) If fluid is clean and unburned, check to see if your vehicle is equipped with an electronic shift module (have someone check codes to test). Otherwise, unless you are a technician, bring it to a reliable transmission shop.

Inconsistant transmission problems on 2003 jeep gcl


Many times this is caused by either a sticking electronic shift solenoid in the transmission or the trans fluid and filter need to be replaced, has the trans been serviced, it should have been done at 60,000 miles.
