2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee transmission no forward has good reverse fluid level good color good no burnt smell. No slipping prior was coasting up on light it turned green and when I hit the gas nothing


Okay, first check the linkage going from the shifter to the tranny. Block the wheels and have someone watch the shift linkage on the trans while shifting. Maybe it's just loose, broken, or stripped. If linkage is good, it's either your shifter solenoids or torque converter

This sounds like all checks have been done, the oil is fine and the linkage is good, soory to say your trany is in need of a rebuild, sounds like in internal leak or weak pump, i would have a trany shop check it but i can tell you there going to say it news rebuilding. good luck.

Just replaced trannie(auto) in 1993 escort, it has a little hesitation when shifting gears and the new oil smells burnt and is frothy on the tip. the level is low could the low fluid level be the problem?


YES! But your tranny has a BAND for first gear, and clutches for 2nd, third, and if equipted, 4th. The bands are usually the cause of the "burnt smell." The foam is cause by fluid aggitation. DO NOT JUST ADD FLUID. Drain the fluid in the tranny case, and replace the filter, and the fluid. I suspect that the salvaged tranny may have a burned 1st gear band.

94,merc tracer wont go into reverse


this is an electric tranny. when they stop going in gears it means the transmission is failing mechanicly. check fluid level, and smell it. if it smells burnt or looks very dark its prob on its way to be rebuilt. good luck.

Tranny just stopped working 93 grand prix


Usually when this totally meltdown occurs and the fluid level is ok, its because of torque converter failure. i would rebuild asap if possible. its time for a new transmission. there may be a clog in the tranny filter but, i doubt it. this is usually a sign of massive gear damage and torque converter issues. i recommend a total rebuild

Gears won't engage


I am assuming that it is auto. trans??Check trans. fluid level and look under car to make sure linkage is connected and moving. Also when did it stop working ? all of a sudden or after sitting for long time? or over time?But quick guess, If all is good most likely torque converter went out. Then tranny issue, sorry no easy fix!!!
