    when it shifts from first to second you have to be light on the gas or else it wont shift at all when it dosent shift it gets up to about 25 mph and it acts like it slips into neutral rpms keep going up but it doesent gain any speed when you slow down to about 15 mph first gear catches again it will shift manually into second but not drive

    3rd gear and reverse both use the same clutch, Is the 1-2 shift at the right time or is it higher than normal?

    Check the cable that hooks from the throttle body to the lever just above the shift lever. You said you adjusted the linkage did you adjust this (TV link) or the shift linkage. Have someone work the gas pedal while you watch the linkage on the transmission for movement. This link might need adjusted on the throttle body. It also might be a governor problem which is common on the 46re but I think you have a 46rh. Check out the TV cable adjustment and look up the governor issue. Also you said you replaced the transmission, was the other transmission doing the same thing or was it doing something else? If yes, can you explain what the other transmission was doing. Also the replacement trans was exactly the same right?

96 Jeep Grand Cherokee wont shift into 3rd gear, and it thunks when putting it in reverse, then makes a rattling kind of ticking sound????


check your transmission fluid. They will be hard to shift, almost like it has to be "forced" when the fluid level gets too low. Just make sure the car is running and at normal operating temperature when you check it. Do not check it when it is off, or it has just been cranked. It will not be as accurate.

Have a '93 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 4WD, 5.2L, 8 cyl, automatic that's not shifting. Transmission fluid looks good, no burnt smell, no metal bits in fluid, no grinding gears. Won't shift til you...


If the transmission will not go into gear or has trouble finding gears and has the proper amount of fluid, the shifting linkage could be bent or misaligned, especially on automatic models. The linkage can be found on the driver side of the transmission, toward the top of the unit. Inspect it to make sure the components aren't bent or broken and have someone shift the Grand Cherokee while you watch from underneath. Most times, only minor adjustments are necessary.
Also, check Torque Converter and scanned the TCM (Trans Control Module) to know if some fault code is stored there.

My 96 Jeep has trouble shifting from 2nd to 3rd gear.The rpms go up to 4500 then it shifts.


That sounds like the 1st thing to check is the transmission fluid.Start the car ,warm it up,now shift through all the gears and stop in (N).With the engine running,check the fluid level.Top up if needed.If you do,look for leaks.Hope this helps

1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee - V6 engine with a Automatic 4-speed Transmission. Unit will not shift out of 1-2 speed into 3-4 gear. I have checked shift linkage - is OK & TV linkage OK. Is there a vacuum...


The only thing that you can do is check the trans fluid.Start car,run it through all gears and end in neutral.Handbrake on.Now check the trans fluid level.Make sure engine is warm.If needed add fluid.If this is not the problem,a tranny expert is the go.There is not a lot anyone can do with an auto trans at home.Hope this helps

Transmission wont shift


check the kickdown/throttle valve cable. It may be bound up and stuck in the maximum position giving you extremely late shifts.

There ISN"T any modulators or vac lines on any Chrysler automatics
