SOURCE: 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee transmission or transfer case

As I said, trans fluid keeps the internal components "alive"... Low fluid level can cause burning of internal clutches, premature hardening of seals (essential to proper transmission of fluid pressure) as well as lubrication of necessary gear components such as planetary gear set (which can cause whine etc. which you now have) All of these components rely upon a constant flow of fluid for both cooling and lubrication. Depending upon how low and how long these parts had interrupted fluid flow, directly influences how much damage was done. I take no joy in telling you that you may have damaged your unit, I'd be far happier if I could give you a quick, inexpensive fix. But based upon what you have said, If I was working hands-on with this problem, I would make the recommendation I've already made. There are pressure tests etc that can be done at a transmission shop to verify to some degree of certainty what is going on within your unit. Hopefully they may find something other than what I've said. At this point though, it is wise to have it checked out by a professional, before you become stranded at a time when you can least afford to be.

that would be 80w90 for the differentual, for the gearbox it is 75w90 this is for a manual gearbox, and no do not use auto fluid in a manual box, it is way way thinner and your box would possibly last 2 to 3 days before you would be purchasing a new one, hope this helps

I have a 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 truck with problems engaging the 4x4. I have checked the CAD. The vacuum does switch sides and the fork does move from side to side when FWD is selected. The truck acts


The fork must not be moving enough or the vacume is to weak. Also there is a vacume plunger in the vacume switch on the trasfere case make sure that is working. light oil can free it up or replace it

Pistol09pete,

It sounds like you have a problem with the vacuum lines that travel from the transfer case (these should be color coded lines that are green, red, and black). Goodluck

My Blazer just got a new transmisson, but it will not shift. It just stays in first gear. Also, the speedometer will not work, and the ABS light comes on?


speedo not working could be they put the new transmission in and did not connect or the gear is missing or the wrong type .

sounds like vacume assit module is bad or not connected in the back of the transmission is a brass colored bell shaped part with a vacume line attached right above the tansmission pan follow the vacume line could have slipped between the engine and transmission and is kinked or wasnt connected at all wich could be the case if your speedo isnt connected abs light could be because you have a vacume leak because the vacume assit module isnt connected.

I have a 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 quad cab 4x4. I have been in Iraq for 15 months, and now that I'm back I went out to test the truck out. when trying to switch into 4 high, nothing happens, no "jump",...


Most likly cause to your problem would be the transfer case vacume switch check for vacume at switch then check for vacume at the front differntal if you have vacume at switch but none at the front differntal then replace transfer case vacume switch if no vacume at switch look for broken vacume line at intake manifold

Front drive, 4 Wheel drive won't engage


that vacume line goes back to the transfer case, the end that goes behind the motor hooks to a steel tube so it does not get hot from the exhaust., my guess it should be hooked up so it will feed vacume to the vacume ball so it can lock in the axels. if you start the car and shift into 4 wheel drive and listen under hood you should hear a hissing sound, that is vacume, if you can't hear it there, you may have to craw under the right side to hear it, probably came unhooked underneith the car

its a vacume operated cylinoid on the top of your transfer case. has three vacume lines to it. replace. could also be your vacume lines to that switch. check usally they touch the exhaust manifold and put a hole in it check that as well.
