Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0 auto. At start up the trans pump sounds like lack of fluid whine. Put into gear & it drives for few minutes then slips to the point of stopping, if left idling it will move give throttle and it stays still like low fluid. Has high miles 190,000. Has reverse & 1st so the bands not broken, I'm thinking filter & oil change & adjusting bands but I cant read pan rail to see if it has the 42re or 42rh trans as band adjustment is different for both. vin is1j4gz58s6rc149xxx

Likely it's better to leave the bands alone. The servos have plenty of travel and unless it was "hammering" into gear (from excessive clearance there) likely adjusting them won't do much. Pan rail is stamped pretty deep...carb cleaner wont clean it up enough to read?
Replacing the filter may help if it's plugged up. If not, don't bother replacing it...problem is internal and filter won't change much of anything.
You can only partially replace the fluid because the converter has no drain. Therefore, use cheap oil and a container of lucas conditioner. If it helps, do the change again at 3,000 miles and use a higher quality fluid along with another lucas.
If you can't get the unit #, buy both filter kits and make note of which is for what transmission. Return the unused one.

1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 46 RH auto transmission. after the motor / trannie gets warm it starts to slip out of gear 2, 3 , 4, if i let off the accelerator and downshift it will eventually go back into...


Other than removing & cleaning the valve body

ANY SLIPPING EVER in the life of that trans,
will eventually lead to a rebuild

That one went 18 years in my dakota & still
good when I parted with it a year ago

Most rear drive transmissions, last ten years & transaxles
are on their death beds from day one.

Unless you actually back probed the sensors with an oscilloscope
& scan tool data was next to non on OBD 1,it is possible
the sensors were never bad

My 94 grand cher laredo v8 has a hard time getting into second, i have to over rev to 5k let off acceleration.all other gears change at 3 1/2 what could be the problems?


try having thbe fluid changed with the proper fluid. It may be low on fluid and this could keep the trans. from going into gear properly. Look at the old fluid when draing, see if there is metal in the fluid. If so you will need to have the trans. repaired.

How do you add transmission fluid to a 94 jeep grand cherokee?


Start the car.Warm it up by taking it for a drive.Pull up and select all the gears and finish in neutral.Now check the the tranny fluid from the dipstick.If it needs adding,it is to be put down the dipstick tube.Thats why most tran fluid bottles have the small pullout tube in them.It does not flow in very quickly so be patient.Hope this helps

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.

2000 jeep grand cherokee laredo hesitates in 2nd gear when cold


Is it manual or auto trans? If manual the gear lube is thicker when cold and the syncronizers tend to stick and not slide free for grind free shifting or for locking into gear.
If Auto trans if the jeep is warmed up setting then cycle the gears before driving. If that helps then the fluid is not getting through the valve body properly. It could be metal in the body or filter or cold seals are letting fluid by til the seals warm, expand and hold pressure. I'm assuming trans fluid is good, not old. One item that can lead to poor cold shift in an auto trans is a bad torque convertor. Since it seems to be a second gear issue the second section of the trans could have a bad seal. In an auto trans I'd take to a shop and have a cold pressure test done. They will tell which one is the problem.

Taking a while to go into gear


Check the fluid level of the transmission.The model number in your vehicle is the A500,also designated the 42RE.With this trans,the fluid level is checked with the trans in Neutral,and the parking brake set,with the vehicle on level ground.If it is low on fluid,then there is a leak that must be located,and repaired.

It's grinding very hard when i put it in gear, drive or reverse.


Make sure you have enough fluid, and honestly, regardless of the fluid level, change it and put in new transmission fluid. If it's an automatic, change the transmission filter too. You can try adding some Lucas stabilizer as well. If that doesn't do it, you may be looking at a rebuild or replacement.
