Sounds like third gear is gone, You will have to see a dealer or trans shop for that on.

2005 jeep grand cherokee laredo transmission shifting problems


  • A/T or M/T (auto or stick, gee)
  • if A/T is this the 42RE box>? are you in DRIVE? or 1 or 2 gear.
  • does rpm rise above 3000 rpm > at your attempt? if not ,its a bad engine (weak)
  • is the shift linkage even shifting correctly (movement top and bottom)
  • check levels yet. (and for pink ./red AFT not black-metal flake
  • change the filter yet? or skip service. at 50k miles. ?????
  • check all fuses yet>?
  • using a basic OBD2 scan tool are there any tranny DTC errors?>
  • does the FSM stall test pass? in 1st.? and reverse?
  • if stall fails, slips , then tranny bad. if not its really stuck in 1st gear.
The TCM commads the gear change, there is no valve body brain.
the TCM shifts to second with good inputs to the TCM
if the TCM sees bad inputs it will tell you, SCAN IT.

Violent Shaking


No check engine light on? If it jumps rapidly, then it can only be due to the transmission changing gears, or slipping clutches. Either way, there should be a fault code set in the PCM. You need to get it scanned first to know the fault code.

no.
but slips , is big deal.
check fuses
check levels
full flush it.
scan it yet, no, but if the TCM is in limphome mode
it will not shift right, so why do you skip scanning it.
what it the TCM tells you a speed sensors is borked.
why work blind.?scan it.first.
does it slip in 1st gear?

at 70mph that is called transmission flare, never a good sign that.

How can you tell what trans is in 01 grand cherokee laurado 4.0


Here is an article I found talking about the Transmission. The second generation Grand Cherokee: 1999-2004 Jeep WJ The first Grand Cherokee was redesigned in 1999, for lower production cost and greater performance and reliability; it was Chrysler's first use of an electronic bus to replace individual wires throughout the body.

Jeep five-speed automatic transmission

An all-new, electronically-controlled transmission with five forward ratios including an alternate second gear ratio for improved performance for passing and better fuel economy is available with the V-8 only, and was designed specifically for Jeeps.

The transmission features unique characteristics such as a tall, 3.00:1 first gear that gives the driver better initial acceleration. Real-time driver adaptive shifting fine-tunes the shift pattern to the driver, while an alternate second gear ratio gives the driver five forward ratios. During acceleration, second gear has a ratio of 1.67. Depending on speed and throttle position, both this gear and an alternate 1.50 second gear ratio are available for kick-down operation, making the down-shift smoother. Its reverse gear ratio is equal to the first gear ratio, to allow for heavier loads.

Other features include three planetary gear sets that combine the widest range of gear ratios available in any transmission in its class. Combined with precise step selections, this brings smooth shifts and maximum power and optimal fuel economy.

The transmission is built at the Indiana Transmission Plant in Kokomo, Indiana, in an all-new 1.2-million square-foot (110,000 m2) facility.

Without getting into transmission diagnostics that would require special tools, you can check the transmission fluid level. You could also drain and replace the trans fluid to see if this solves the problem. Changing the fluid is considered regular maintence, and will not hurt a thing. The trans will benifit from fresh fluids in the long run also.

sounds like a faulty transmission bud.

Could be low fluid, burnt fluid, or worn one-way clutch or brakebands.

Best to let an autobox specialist try it out and give you a full opinion.

If you have never had the trans serviced there could be gummy deposits causing a valve body malfunction. problem also can be related to a shift control problem that would need diagnosis by a trans shop with a ride along "flight recorder".
