Question about 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee
6 posts just to tranny
back up one , and see my answer.
what engine is in the jeep, Gas or Diesel.???????
what country? (diff, countries use different parts, by law or demand)
and what transmission options 4wd or AWD.?????
Please do say what knocks means.
check fuses yet, or tranny ATF fluid levels yet , not by guess? but by doing the steps for the A/T level checks, btw , its not done like the engine method at ALL.
here is a list of tranny squawks.(beefs, symptoms)
btw2 the FSM has a huge list of possible symptoms, ever seen and FSM, ? if not why not look there. it has a chapter called.
alldata.com has that too. read it. then ask questions.
ON CAR transmissing checks, diagnosis and repairs.
1: levels. (fluids) is it pink ,red, brown or black color. or silver flakes?
2: fuses. all.
3: TCM/PCM error codes. DTC'S errors. yes, scan it, i see you did.
4: tranny pump test. (FSM)
5: stall test. does the FSM stall tests pass , ?? takes 5min work (ask)
6: is the transmission filter clean? (yes, service does extend tranny life)
(ill stop here)
there is a start. we start there, then go further,
if really motivated, you can watch Duane's 10 hour Jeep tranny rebuild video. (ask)
there are a huge list of possible A/T errors. and issues.
from shifter dont move. (stuck in park) loose shifter, or?
stuck in any gear .
skips gears. (limphome does that)
car dont move.
tranny slips. in any gear (aka: flares.)
will not down shift proper.
gets too hot.
the list really, is near endless.
does trans fail hot and cold engine or both?
is it leaking ATF.
most owner do not want to do the FSM tests
is that you?
you have 2 choices, RTM read the FSM do the tests
or take it in.
it is your choice.
what i do is make sure the TCM (function) signals are
good to the Tranny solenoids.
if yes, then the tranny is bad.
if tranny is bad, some can be fixed on car.
some even have bottom VB solenoids, that can be replaced on car
some Jeeps , this is near impossible.
i can show ,you the rebuild video showing that.
but why? are you going to do that?
i think you mean the transmission FLARES.
or (jumps to a false neutral)
If you allow it to do that , it will burn up clutch packs fast.
the more you do that , the worse the damage and parts needed.
the reasons for FLARE are: (at the least)
1: TCM make and error (or loose corroded wire ) .
2: the Shift solenoids failed.
3: that gears clutch pack is damaged.
4: low pump pressure. (or internal leaks or bad pressure reg )
