SOURCE: adjust kickdown cable

If it is an overdrive, there isn't a kickdown cable. I would suspect something wrong with the engines output.

With the over drive engaged the vehicle looses substantial power when getting to an uphill. Had it checked by an agent it is not electrical


Some Jeeps will do that. When you feel the engine beginning to work too hard, lightly tap the brake pedal. That will disengage the overdrive. On long steep hills, shift into normal drive (3rd gear).
Also try flooring the gas on a straghtaway and see if the kick down is working. If not, try lengthening or adjusting the kickdown cable.
If what I just said has no effect, run a code scan. Could be that the MAP sensor isn't working properly, or some other sensor is out of range.
I have four Jeeps and all of them do that and run perfectly. Jeep is a bit conservative when it comes to the kickdown position. After a while what I mentioned becomes part of "normal procedure" when driving.

Will not downshift automatically


first place to check is the kickdown cable between the transmission and the lever on the throttle body. tighten up on the adjustment a bit and remember just how much you took up in case you need to return to that setting.

89 Cherokee kickdown not working


There should be an adjustment on the cable from the throttle body to the trans. If adjustment can be made, shorten it in small increments, unless you find it detached or broken.

Shuttering at highway speeds


well the kickdown cable out of adjust ment would only screw up your shifting timing and when the vehicle downshifts when you press the accelerator hard. usually a shudder at cruise speeds 40 mph or higher indicates a torque converter problem or the govenor pressure solenoid and sensor. i personally would start by replaceing the sensor and solenoid and install a new filter
