Question about 1999 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Jeep Cherokee 4wd 4.0 L automatic transmission. I was driving down freeway at 70 MPH when it just quit on me. Once I was in the emergency lane I tried to start it a few times but it would only turn over & not continue to run. After getting it home I did some checks & replaced the spark plugs, wires, cap, roter & got it to run. The problem I am having at this point is it will run in park & neutral perfect as soon as you put it into gear it wants to sputter, hesitate & just quit, the tachometer will flexuate wildly during this time.

Automatic trans will not shift from 1st to 2nd on 1999 Jeep Grand cherokee


Hello
The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

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.

Have a 1999 Jeep Cherokee, drove it one day no problems, got up the next morning to go to work and have no drive or reverse


I would check the transmission fluid levels as a start.If all fluids are good,the transmission filter may be blocked and the trans needs a service.Hope this helps

Replaced transmission seal then on 2 different occasions going down highway at bout 65 to 70 miles hour transmission kept shifting btween overdrive n drive come to a stop n take off didnt do it again...


Computer controlled transmissions can get confused at times, from my personal experience. If the problem doesn't happen again, I would ignore it. If it happens all the time, it's most likely the transmission computer. Other things could be the shift linkage, engine vacuum leak, speed sensor, etc... Hope this helps.

1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara Vibrate/shake at 55-70 mph


Lift the back of your car.With a stable rest and with the two hind wheels hanging, run your car up to the speed where you experienced vibration. have someone take care of the throttle and shifting while you observe the transmission shaft. You may have an imbalanced shaft.

Shudders(shakes) at about 60mph


You may have worn out CV joints on the front wheel drive axles, they vibrate/shudder badly if they are really worn out.

Don't know how to use 4WD on 1995 jeep cherokee


the jeep cherokee has 2 different types of 4 wd systems. the command trac has 2 wd, 4hi, neutral and 4 low. if driving on pavement make sure it's in 2 wd. it also has shift on the fly, up to 60 mph you can move the lever to 4 hi and it will not hurt anything. if trying to go to 4 low, be rolling less than 5mph and put the trans shifter in neutral and move the 4wd selector to 4 low. do the reverse to move back to 4 hi or 2 wd

Place the trans in nuetral then put the transfer case in 2HI.
when you drive on the road always have the transfer case in 2HI UNLESS you have a transfer case that has an alltime 4WD option

while moving about 2-5 mph, shift your transmission into neutral but keep the vehicle rolling, then move the transfer case shift from 4HI to 2HI.
