I had a shifting problem. The car would start in the wrong gear and shift at wrong times. I repaced the governor postion sensor and tranny fluid and the problem has been fixed for several years. Did you replace the tranny fluid?

Which trans do you have??? The 4.7 has the 45RFE and the 4.0 has the 42RE. If you have the 42RE, try replacing the connector on the output speed sensor. I have seen intermittent problems with the connectors as they get older leading to falling into low gear and not shifting up

sounds like you have a problem with one of your lines on your power steering or one of its components. the grinding noise could also be one of your pulleys that have gone bad too. check your steering assemby gear box.

94 jeep grand cherokee laredo V8 5.2l automatic. Drives fine but after 10-15 mins of driving After its parked it makes loud popping noise from the rear. Cant locate where the sound is exactly coming from....


You can check fluid level by removing the rubber plug in the cover. Fluid is full when on level ground, it is just at the edge of the hole (or very close) if you are already getting noises out of there, you can remove the cover and inspect gears for wear or breakage. If you find a large amount of metal debris in the lube it tells you something bad is going on back there. Although rebuildable, it's not a home job...requires exact settings in order to operate properly. You can find good units far cheaper than even a gearset costs in any scrapyard. to match ratio, count the teeth on the ring gear and the pinion gear. the replacement MUST have the exact same number. Before swapping diffs, check all back there to make sure noise is not from somewhere else.

2001 grand cherokee laredo makes whirring noise when in overdrive,as soon as we take it out of overdrive the noise stops. Changed front half shafts and bearings, but the noise is still there.


The rear ends on this make an model are a weak point.
Overdrive and Reverse are usually the first gears to show symptoms when the transmission is going bad.. You should seek the advice of a mechanic.

The shifter is moving from Drive to Neutral and make grinding or creaking noise while I'm driving. Some times wen the jeep is park and I shift to reverse does the same noise. Fluids are ok but the tranfer...


Though you did not say, I'm going to assume it's a stick shift.
Shifter popping out of gear nearly always indicated an internal transmission problem (likely worn synchros) Either way, trans needs to be replaced or rebuilt. Transfer case is supposed to be filled with good grade auto transmission fluid, though some people opt for gear oil (but it gets really thick in cold weather). You may aslo have a t-case problem if you ran it low, but it is not related to shifter problem!
