Question about 2005 Jeep Liberty Sport

1 Answer

My jeep won't go when I put it in gear

When I was going down the interstate my jeep jerked and then started trying to cut out on me. I pulled it over on the shoulder of the interstate and checked the belts and fluids and everything looked okay. When I tried to put it in gear it would not go in drive or reverse the motor would just rev up.

SOURCE: 02 jeep liberty won't shift into 3rd or 4th gear.

Ratio codes generally indicate a pressure loss & slipping which the computer reads as a gear ratio problem. Likely you need a rebuild.

SOURCE: 1998 jeep wrangler dont shift into 1st or reverse

I will bet it grinds when you try to engage first or reverse. When this happened on my car, I adjusted the clutch and it improved. You need about a half inch of free play when you first touch the pedal with your foot. If you have a slave cylinder, (hydraulic clutch). You may need to bleed the system. With air in the system, you can't get enough clutch to fully disengage the trans from the motor.(Clutch and pressure plate) It's like you only pushed down half way on the pedal. If it's not hydraulic, it should be adjusted with wrenches. If clutch is fine, It could be a loose shift linkage. It would seem extra sloppy when moving shifter, It would just not go in gear, with out the grinding.Hope this helps. lbreen

SOURCE: 2001 jeep grand cherokee wont reverse in

This could be an issue with the shift solenoid , but can also be caused by low fluid due to a leak, check your fluid. Is there a check engine light on, if there is it could be a solenoid issue.

SOURCE: I have a 1979 Jeep CJ5 6 cyl. The Jeep starts and

Hi,
With the engine running in neutral, punch it and see if it bogs down. If it it does and all you hear is the carb gasping (for lack of better word) it may be a slight timing issue. Here are a few ideas to try:
Check vacuum advance at the distributor to see if vacuum.
Is the ignition electronic or manual distribution?
If manual:
File points/check point gap (You could also replace the points and condenser).
Either ignition:
Put a timing light to the engine is slightly out of time and adjust.
Hope this helps... Good luck fellow CJ5 Jeepster!

if this is a 5 speed manual transmission...all you need to do before putting your jeep into reverese is puting it into first gear and then shifting it to reverse to avoid any grinding or problems shifting into reverse...this isn't a problem just a poor jeep design by not installing an extra gear to eliminate this grinding or shifting problem

I was driving home on the interstate at 70 miles an hour in 5th gear and my car started jerking. why????


The engine has developed a misfire,most likely. Did the check engine light come on or start flashing? If so, find out what codes has set to determine which cylinder is misfiring and then proceed with the repair.

a 700 code is a generic transmission code to the ecm. I can't believe the dealer didn't clear the codes out and try to find the problem. The symptoms your having sounds like a TCC solenoid. (torque converter clutch). It is stuck or malfunctioning. The first thing I would do is get a transmission additive and put it in. Lucas or TranX. About 10 bucks. These are seal conditioners and if you have a stuck piston this usually will help. It's a start, next would be a solenoid package, several hundred dollars. I have replaced a couple of these on low mile transmission. But it needs properly diagnosed first. Before you start throwing money in it.

My husband turned off our Chevy Trailblazer without putting it in gear and now it won''t start and the gear shift is lock up. What do you do to fix it????


first make sure battery isn't dead because if he cut it off in gear then the switch couldn't cut the power off and it'll run the battery down and there is a electrical solenoid that allows the shifter to move if theres no voltage than the shifter want go into park and the ignition switch want turn off.

it sounds like your automatic transmission quit his job. How much miles are on the clock? If more than 150.000 and you pulled trailers, climb mountains etc. this will be the first choice. Let the engine idle, push the brakes and check if the car will go in any gear. If this will happen only in reverse gear, your auto trans need to be replaces. You can use a rebuilt auto trans.
