1996 Jeep Cherokee transmission problem

I have a 1996 Jeep Cherokee and the transmission is acting funny. When the jeep warms up, sometimes it slips out of overdrive until I press on the gas a little more and a lot of times when I stop it doesn't shift all the way down into first. I can't imagine that driving around town without first gear is any good on the transmission and can't afford to have it replaced. Do you have any advice? It is a 4WD automatic 4.0L.

    I'd try changing the fluid and putting in some Lucas additive. If that dosen't help, it could be an internal pressure or control problem (needs shop diagnosis)

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


4.0L
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.

My 1996 grand cherokee transmissom is real slow


My jeep does the same thing but from 1st to 2nd i was told the solenoid valve in my valve body sticks until the fluid is warmed up and opens up.Cheapest thing to do is let your jeep warm up for a little bit to let the fluid cycle.

1999 jeep grand cherokee transmission


This is called limp mode chrysler did this to protect the transmission without leaving the owner stranded by the road,a few things will cause this mainly putting the wrong fluid in the transmission,they use only atf+4,or the govenor pressure sensor is acting up which should cause a check engine light to come on,or the transmission just needs a fluid and filter change,should be done every 2yrs or 36k miles,due the fluid and filter change about 40.00 but if you have the wrong fluid then the whole system needs to be flushed and refilled-transmission-torque convertor,radiator and cooler if equipped and all lines.
