97 jeep Cherokee makes grinding noise when putting gear and will not move and no gears what could be this problem that

Assuming this is an automatic, the linkage could be caught between gears. This happens when a motor mount is broken and the engine has been punched to high rpms. As the engine rocks over, the linkage comes out of alignment.

Place in Park, Turn the engine off. Open the hood and manually pull the throttle cable wide open as far as it will go. Repeat a few times. While you are there check all three cables as they attach to the throttle bracket. If all is well the next start up should be fine.

check the fuses make sure none of them blew and if its not that then its proble a bad alternator, witch caused the ripple effect when one thing goes on a newer car no matter how small it will trigger a bunch of random events such as transmission not going into gear, i assume its a automatic i highly dought that the tps went with the low voltage, and if your hearing a clicking noise its either not enough juice going to the starter, or a coil wire popped off

I have a 4.0 grand cherokee 2000, when shifting reverse gear , it makea a loud sound (TUK). But there is no problem in driving and gear shifting is normal.

Some vehicles with automatic transmissions have enough slop to create this noise normally. If the problem just started or has become increasingly worse, it could be due to worn universal joints. The universal joints couple the drive shaft to the drive axle and the transmission on 2-WD and to the transfer case on 4-WD. Another noise that comes from worn universal joints is a squeeking sound at lower speeds. A vibration could also be noticed with worn universal joints.

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee makes a lot of noise when selecting Reverse. Forward gear okay. Now, reverse doesn't work and it sounds like the transmission is coming apart.

Your automatic transmission has an internal low and indirect clutch. The indirect clutch is what's used when your vehicle is in reverse. You might have a heavy jerking when you put it into gear that feels like vehicle got hit by another or loud rattling or chattering in gears. It very well may be coming apart as you think and soon, so I'd recommend taking it to your local transmission shop to inspect and test it and they can give you a more detailed idea of what it would take to fix it. good luck

94 jeep grand cherokee laredo V8 5.2l automatic. Drives fine but after 10-15 mins of driving After its parked it makes loud popping noise from the rear. Cant locate where the sound is exactly coming from....

You can check fluid level by removing the rubber plug in the cover. Fluid is full when on level ground, it is just at the edge of the hole (or very close) if you are already getting noises out of there, you can remove the cover and inspect gears for wear or breakage. If you find a large amount of metal debris in the lube it tells you something bad is going on back there. Although rebuildable, it's not a home job...requires exact settings in order to operate properly. You can find good units far cheaper than even a gearset costs in any scrapyard. to match ratio, count the teeth on the ring gear and the pinion gear. the replacement MUST have the exact same number. Before swapping diffs, check all back there to make sure noise is not from somewhere else.

Cracking noise while turning-is it supposed to be in 4h during normal highway driving

You can use fifth anytime you are going better than 45. Don't use it on steep hills or when you feel the engine laboring. If automatic, generally fourth gear shift is at about 2000 rpm and will stay engaged at 45. Cracking noise generally is dry ball joints (no fittings either) Lube the remainder of the front end components and if it continues that's likely where to look.
