Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2 Answers

Just took 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee in to dealer because of Tranny. Found metal shavings, and they said it will need to be replaced. It is still under the premium extended warranty we purchased through dealer, however now they say there is a small chance it won't be covered(which is total ****), we will find out Monday. How much to replace a tranny?

Hi Arissfamily,
Replacing a tranny is labor intensive. The price can vary greatly depending on rates, type of transmission and availability of replacement parts. It's going to be a chunk of change.

My advice to you is make sure it needs to be replaced. Read your warranty, taking notes on any reference to the problems you are having. If it turns out, the tranny is not covered, bring the vehicle somewhere else for a second opinion (or even a third).

Ask around to see which shops have a good reputation.
Working on transmissions is considered one of the black arts by many mechanics, largely feared and misunderstood. You want someone comfortable in the area to be diagnosing and working on them.

You never mentioned, but need to consider:
Why did you bring it in in the first place?
What was wrong?

Was it slipping badly?
Still drivable?

Metal shavings alone do not indicate replacement.
What else was there. Interrogate these guys, don't just accept their opinion, make them prove it.

Hope this helps

If your car is covered by a premium extended warranty, then it is covered. Many dealerships have told their clients in the past that some repairs are not covered by their warranty and charged them for the repairs, while billing the manufacturer for the parts and labor that were covered in the first place. This way the dealer gets paid twice, by the car owner, and by the manufacturer. And in many cases, the parts that are needed for the repairs are obtained free by the dealer since they are covered under warranty. Read your warranty, post it here if necessary, and if they dealer tells you that your repairs are not covered then ask them why, and to prove it to you in writing so you can contact the manufacturer, or even Chrysler itself, and verify. This will make them understand that they can't just bill you for stuff you should be covered already.

2001 jeep grand cherokee runs rough while doing 50 mph and feels like the motor is shaking. It runs rough sometimes. The problem is not constant. The wheel will feel like a wheel weight has fallen off,...

As something to start with, I would check your injectors, do an injector cleaner/seafoam treatment. I would also drain the oil, and check with a magnet to make sure there are no metal shavings running around, and check to see if one of the cylinders has lost compression/the spark plug isn't working.

Transmission wont shift into reverse

By the grayish color, fluid being thick, and metal shavings, the clutches are pretty much worn out. It's time to either rebuilding your transmission or just installing a good used one. The fluid normally should be a reddish color. The gray is from the actual clutch material going away.
