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.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee transmission no forward has good reverse fluid level good color good no burnt smell. No slipping prior was coasting up on light it turned green and when I hit the gas nothing


Okay, first check the linkage going from the shifter to the tranny. Block the wheels and have someone watch the shift linkage on the trans while shifting. Maybe it's just loose, broken, or stripped. If linkage is good, it's either your shifter solenoids or torque converter

96 jeep grand cherokee 5.2 want shift gears to about 4000 rpm


Check the T.V. Cable linkage at the tranny end. Make sure the return spring is pulling the linkage back on its own. I fixxed a 96 and an 02 shifting at 3000+ by spraying this linkage and cable with WD40 and working it back and forth untill it moved all the way to the peddle up position by its self. Parts were rusty and sticking when turned past a point.

Your shift selector linkage. Make sure the cable is actually streched, and not just loose at either end. Commonly when it doesn't function correctly the wable adjustment is loose at the transmission. It an arm with a solid linkage to it as well as posibly the cable directly tto another arm that is attached to a shaft entering the transmission. This is where the adjustment for the shift selector is gets paired with the correct transmission shift arm position.

My 2001 jeep grand cherokee wont shift into 4th it only goes to third what would cause the 4th gear to not engage


There are several things that could cause that.
> Replacement transmission not equipped with overdrive
> Overdrive solenoid in replacement transmission defective
> Overdrive control circuits damaged or loose pins or connections.
> Gear shift linkage or cable out of adjustment
> Transmission range sensor malfunction or out of adjustment

Since you have a computer-controlled transmission, it would be better to ask the onboard computer that question....you will probably get a much more definitive answer.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Transmission problems. when the gear selector is in reverse, it doesn't engage in reverse. When you go to neutral, it drives forward but doesn't shift through the...


Put the vehicle in Park, disconnect the shifter from the shift lever on the trans, adjust the linkage or cable so the connection is clearly a slip in/on connection and tighten things back up. Hopefully this will solve your non-reverse. As for all the gunk and metal shavings, friend, you better have another tranny standing by in your garage when this one stops working completely.
