Question about Jeep Grand Cherokee
My 1994 jeep grand cherokee has an automatic transmission. Lately I've been having three problems that I believe are related:
1) occasionally, I'll start the car, go into reverse, stop, switch into drive. At this point, the engine will sound like it's trying to engage a clutch and will sometimes stop. I'll restart it and drive off without issue.
2) When I'm idling at a stop, the car will stop suddenly, again as if it's trying to engage a clutch.
3) From a stop, I'll start moving, but if feels like the 2nd gear is being used as opposed to the first gear. In about a second or two, the car will figure it out, and switch to first, then second, etc.
FYI, I'm not getting any error codes, the transmission fluid looks good, and the following parts are new (replaced in the last year): coil, cap, rotor, spark wires, radiator, water pump, belt, alternator, starter, oil and filter( a couple days ago).
Use a engine scanner to pull codes, If none it sounds like the lock-up torque converter may not be disengaging at idle. Or you have a idle air control valve or TPS going bad, then repair codes by replacing failed sensor or shift control solenoid as needed. If no codes are present your transmission could have a internal failure. It's also been know that oil transmission fluid in the system will have a higher fluid retention causing the 2nd gear solenoid to stick causing the transmission to stay in second till the line pressure rises and drops back to first with a hard shift. Keep me posted be glad to get your transmission running again.
