I would check the transmission fluid and color. Check the fluid with the car parked level and running, in park. The fluid should be a bright red color. You might need to replace the transmission filter and fluid. Grand Cherokees have alot of transmission problems.

I have a 1998 Ford F150. The transmission is a 4r70W, automatic. While driving it slipped into neutral and when I managed to get the gears to re-engage, it will only drive in the lower gears. Will not...


Does not matter what your told

You have to diagnose the problem

The TPS may have something to with
shift stratagy & on a 1998 may be worn out
by now, if original. Only testing it will tell
It won't have anything to do with changing gears

Torque Converter Clutch you can feel
separate from shifting
If you ride the brake pedal, you disengage TTC
Lock-up & pick up a few rpm

If the trans is all original, just pull it & rebuild it

If has been replaced, you could clean the valve body
& work on checking out the shift solenoids

I have to push the accelerator almost to the floor to get it to go in to passing gear. Motor feels weak and takes a long time to gain speed. car feels heave but the motor runs very smooth


Actually, this is normal. To 'kick down' the gear in the transmission, you should go WOT or wide open throttle.

4 cylinder motors seem to feel weaker than v-8's and are tuned to the transmission to rev higher to accomplish a certain acceleration point.

Good luck on driving.

Transmission 1994 lincoln towncar- 89000 miles


I would not conclude you have a trans problem,as some other issue maybe be confusing the shift stratagy.
The temperature issues and time driven are the key here.
I would check for stored codes first.
Then go over the basics-Spark Plugs,Ignition,Egr Valve,Vacuum Leaks,MAF Sensor and so forth.
Clean up the engine driveablity issues first.

Becareful when considering changing the trans fluid. That will not fix anything and may cause it to slip more,if you get to that point in your testing

The time parked is not a concern ,as I feel these issues where there before.
If the engine is not running correctly ,you will get just what you discribed,with the shifting up and down

Yes i have a 96 cadillac deville i just bought i cant feel it shifting.It goes right into gear and goes down the road but dont feel it shifting.


Try manually shifting it and see if you can feel it shifting.You should be able to.Then just drive it in drive light normal and see if you can feel it.Usually you will get a check engine light or have the transmission codes checked if you do feel it.Sometimes these transmissions are very smooth.Hope this helps.

Maybe a transmission problem?


If you're only in "D", you should switch to "OD" when driving at higher speeds. "D" only allows you to move up to third gear whereas "OD" will move you into fourth. You're over-working your transmission by driving in "D".
