YES, the PLASTIC Bushing stays, you just pop the Linkage out from the Inside and it presses back in

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.

Well, in the interim, you could make one by cutting a small piece of rubber hose (like fuel line) and putting a flat washer on both ends or checking with a bushing manufacturer and see if you can find one that fits your application. I generally replace steel or plastic bushings with ones made from "oilite" which is generally used in small electric motors it's made from bronze and treated with a lubricant that stays in the metal...they last forever.
Be creative...bushings are used in nearly every machine, not only in cars.

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.

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.

Wont shift out of first


Hello.
The pumps in the transmission are bad, that or your shift linkage has it stuck in first, but im sure you can still go to reverse and park so thats not your problem. Your linkage may have a poor adjustment though. Or your speed module is bad. It can be any of those three things, your best bet is to bring the Jeep to a transmission place and have the transmission looked over and see whats exactly going wrong. Hope this helps!

To be honest with you Jeeps are notoriuse for their transmission problems.Most likely you have a shift solonoid in the transmission bad. I would have it checked before it gets worse to try and prevent internal problems.

Good Luck and I hope this helps you.

1995 jeep grand cherokee transmission park to drive shift noise


Check transmission fluid level, then look at transmission linkage. Some are in a place where they can be bumped around and knocked out of place. Tweek the shifter a little on both sides of the resting position when you shift. If the noise goes away. It is probably linkage related. If you can sample the tranny fluid, check for burnt smell and or metal flakes. Aamco will check it free but dont let them sell you repairs as preventative measures. They will try.

Transmision Shifting Problem


Was the fluid you drained red or black? did it smell like trans or gear oil? With linkage disconnected, could you put trans in park by moving the lever on the side of the unit? Oil condition is likely a separate issue...most "blown" transmissions generally have normal operation of shift, it just dosen't do what you tell it to. two things likely going on are: linkage problem and likely in need of fluid/filter change.
