Question about Cars & Trucks
Well either your gear shift cable snapped, or if it's electronic the shift became defective. Sadly, and hopefully not, you could have a Transmission problem. Peace. God bless.

Yes it does matter. Remember your filter is a screen that the oil flows over. If it is clogged it will not allow clean oil past it and to some extent will be like you are low on oil or high if the oil can not flow.
Change the filter and look for metal deposits in both the fluid and the filter. Minute shavings like sand or smaller is normal as long as there is not a lot. If you see a lot or see big particles then gears have been ground and you are looking at trouble. Get fixed early. Otherwise if filter is clean and fluid is fine and tranny still does this they make additives for tranny's to help with slipping. I use tranny medic. Follow the directions as you will need to drain some of the fluid out. Also do not add to your tranny unless you have met or exceeded the mileage specs on the bottle of the tranny medic. Hope this helped.

I had the same problem with ABS light and speedometer, I was told that it is the transmission control module. It has not yet stopped shifting but I have had times where it just wont stay running. It will start and then stall. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 4 wheel drive doesnt work.
Has this Jeep been modified at all?
It sounds like the shifter cable was reinstalled backwards.
Specifically the 4-Low "Not Climbing Well". 4-Low should give you the best torque and hill climbing ability.
Do you feel any "Binding" in the steering wheel (difficult to turn)?
Remember a Jeep uses real driveshafts and differentials to give you 4WD - you cannot engage 4WD or 4-Low on dry hard surfaces. It needs a little bit of slip between the wheels for turns.
Check you're fluids too.

possiblity there could be a sensor, or you could have a valve sticking or going bad inside the transmission. good luck
