Check the oil level in the transmission. Have a pressure test done on the transmission to check correct operation on internal mechanics. Run fault codes to check electronics

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0 auto idles good but will only move with it wide open or just barely any throttle

what transmission, mines a 5 speed stick so?????
idles good, well that dont take much.
will only move, car moves?
with what wide open ,the throttle?
well just barely throttle is normal, why say that?

my guess is car has low power, or can not go fast in all gears.
is that it?
if yes, that is transmission slip or a weak engine,
transmission slip is easy RPM goes way high car dont move
weak engine acts like brakes stuck on , low RPM deep right foot.
post all symptoms and win, big time.

Shifting high rpm

its a 5sp manual. only manuals have 5th.
your RPM is wrong, it has 1 extra zero.
correcting that (the dial shows x1000) so
3.2 is 3200 (3.2x1000=
this is normal stock car, , its not a V8. or a diesel, at all.

here are the facts, RPM ,total ratio , etc

see the table for 3000 RPM?
our car goes exactly 59mph
or 94.951296 km/hour.

a perfect match. if Evvah

Transmission slip at high rpm

Once the transmission slips it is done and finished, it needs an overhaul.

My transmission shift very hard. The drive shaft had to be changed when I bought the car. My car is a 1990 BMW 525i

Sounds like you have problems with a part called the valve body inside the transmission or other hydraulic control problems, i suspect you will need to overhaul the transmission to cure this.

I have a toyota 2000rav4 the problem is since it has automatic transmission it seems to be lacking power but still does fine in acceleration when ever running on long plain distance have trouble climbing

Well sorry to tell you but all Rav 4s have bad fuel comp and the auto matic gearboxes will not run in top gear untill the temp gauge reaches approx 28 deg as it is programed that way and some times will stay in 3rd gear once it changed down to 3rd from top, but if it gets into top {2400 rpm } 75 kph
due to the 4wheel drive.
But due to haw many KMor Miles it has done and how its been serviced as the auto gear boxes do have problems and can give the same problems pulling up hills, but its due to the Auto box But make sure the O/D button (over/drive) is off and dash light will come on the dash.

Transmission won't shift into 2nd gear. when i drive, the car 's rpm rev really high

Most automatic transmissions have a modulator attached to the side of them. Check with your local auto parts store on its location.
Make sure you give them the year, make, model ,engine, trans size of your vehicle, so they cangive you an exact location, ok?
Then check all the hoses to it from the engine vacuum line, make sure there is no cracks, breaks, leaks.
