    I AM SORRY ABOUT THAT BUT ITS AN AUTOMATIC

  • Richard Scordino May 11, 2010

    There are at least twelve (maybe more depending upon how they are stacked) clutches inside an automatic transmission. big difference though is that they are about as thick as four sheets of paper on each side. No fluid , pressure low etc, they burn.

  • Richard Scordino May 11, 2010

    You have apply pressure being mis-directed. If you have a shift control module it may be malfunctioning if not something in the valve body is not working properly. Don't drive in this condition because pressure in the wrong places at the wrong time can cause clutches to burn.

Well, there aren't really THAT many clutches in an automatic trans. The older ones had 2 or 3 and 2 band brakes that controlled 2 or 3 forward speeds and reverse. Newer ones have one or two more for overdrive and more speeds. Your jeep is more like the older style, with a lockup torque converter added. The original problem sounded like a piece of contamination in the tailshaft governor, and the best thing was (once it started working again) to leave it alone. The old Chrysler owners manuals told you not to touch the transmission, EVER, unless it was being used for a taxi or towing. The risk of additional contamination far outweighed the benefits of changing the fluid. Your problem now sounds like the valve body is contaminated and something is stuck. There are lots of little spools and valves that are machined to very tight tolerances. Little fibers from clutch wear and filter changes can cause this. It's got pressure, and it's still got clutches (it wants to be in 1st gear). A new valve body is a good bet to fix the problem, but the best thing is to take it to a transmission guy you think you can trust to test the pressures in the valve body and determine what is actually stuck and tell you if it can be repaired or needs replacing.

How should the full-time and part-time 4 wheel drive be used on a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo?


Hi

Full time 4 wheel drive should be used on rugged and difficult to drive on terrain, this could include adverse weather such as deep snow, mudslides, sand dunes etc.

Part time would be used on terrain that is irregular where some parts of a track may be road and other parts rocky, mountainous regions combined with any of the above weather conditions. The 4 wheel drive should not be used for normal driving as it will only over time damage the gearbox, the 4 wheel system is not designed for speed but purely for grip and stability.

Hope this helps

Dan

How can i use the 4 x 4 in my 2000 grand cherokee laredo (6 cyl) i dont have the owners manual and i dont know how to use my 4x4 on snow or something like that


With the Jeep in park, move the left shifter to 4 wheel drive. Proceed to put right shifter into drive, proceed to drive. Only use 4wheel drive when neccessary...ie...snow, mud, use 4 wheel lo in steep incline or when really bogged down.

Hope this helps

I have a 93 jeep grand cherokee laredo it has 4all time neutral and 4lo should i keep it in 4all time all the time or does that ruin it


Yes, Your Jeep is what is known as a Quadra-Trac. This type of cherokee is an all wheel drive model. 4 wheel all time is for everyday driving, Neutral completely dissconects the drive train from the transmission and will not move at all. 4 wheel low is more for off road conditions where traction is compromised. 4 wheel low should NEVER be used at speed above 15 miles an hour.

To the guy above: 4 wheel drive is designed for low end pulling power and safer handling on slippery road conditions. 4 wheel drive has NOTHING to do with how fast you go or how fast you stop. Don't post a comment if you clearly don't know the correct information.
