Tip

How to use your car, so that it can last longer.


Drive gently and avoid high speeds.<br /><br />Your vehicle does not need an elaborate break-in. But following a few simple tips for the first 1,000 km (600 miles) can add to the future economy and long life of our vehicle.<br /><br />Avoid full throttle acceleration when starting and driving.<br /><br />Avoid racing the engine.<br /><br />Try to avoid hard stops during the first 300 km (200 miles).<br /><br />Do not drive slowly with the manual transmission in a high gear<br /><br />Do not drive for a long time at any single speed, either fast or slow.<br /><br />Do now tow a trailer during the first 800 km (500 miles).<br /><br />Good luck.<br />

My 2000 Grand Cherokee LAREDO, V6, automatic doesn't catch when you put it in R to reverse. It basically 'jump' into REVERSE gear either after a few seconds, or sometimes as much as 60...


There could be a few things wrong. The reverse slip could be a worn sevro. the slipping on shifhting gears could be seals in the solenoid package. Try some transmission additive, this will recondition the seals. this could take care of both problems. Tranx, Lucas make good additives. There are other things in the transmission that could cause this, but for $10.00 it's worth a shot. I used it my truck for slipping three years ago and still no problems.

Transmission Slippage


You can have the clutch and the pressure plate checked. If it is an automatic tranny you may try to drain the fluid and have it replaced or have the solenoid cleaned out or checked. The solenoid controls the hydraulic pressure to the clutch

Slips between gears.


well I guess I will say change the fluid again and change the filter- you simply do not have enough miles to be transmission failure- so my guess wil be the shift solenoid as well - contact dealer to confirm.They will have to change with solenoid anyway.I sold my last honda with 275,000 miles and it had a hard life- no issues ever
