Pretty sure they don't use a trans overheat switch on 95's What you are probably looking at is a crank sensor that is beginning to fail. I'd also check the fuel pump too as symptoms are very much the same except that right after shut down, if you turn the key back to run position, if the pump is bad, you won't hear it running. Best to get yourself a haynes or chilton manual so you can do the necessary testing. Crank sensor is the most common problem but cam sensor and coil can also give similar symptoms and because of that I don't ever recommending that you replace anything just because I think it may be bad Always test first. Parts are expensive!!!

    neither crank sensor or pump are easy. cps is at 11 o'clock on the bellhousing looking from the rear, pump is in the tank. Cps harness plug is up near the master cylinder.

Sounds like your Electric Fuel Pump needs replacing or IF it is a camshaft operating unit, still should be checked while jacking up the front end of the vehicle..Ur Velcum

1996 jeep grand Cherokee. It has 221,000 miles on it and when put into gear it wants to stall. Is this the torque converter itself or could it be the torque converter solenoid?

Try this.

Engine stalling and rough run issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

My 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. 5.2L. It sometimes wont shift from first gear to second gear. If and when it does it will keep shifting as it should until you shut it off. Then it may or may not do it...

I had a similar problem for months with my 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0L. Mine used to take a long time to shift and usually wouldn't shift until speeds got up to about 50mph or so for about a mile and a half then would work good afterwards until I shut it off and allow it to sit for a few hours then I would have a repeat of the same problem. I was about to replace a relay in the tranny when someone suggested that I replace the fluid and filter. I took it to Quick lube shop and had the filter and fluid replaced. Still running like a charm going on five months now.

Sounds more like a fuel pump problem ,but iam often wrong,on the older models i have found the rubber connecting hose inside the tank that connects the pump to the outlet on the fuel gauge unit perishes and the fuel pressure drops giving the symptoms you describe

No spark from ignition module on hot start


No spark. I have changed out the distributor cap, rotor, wiring from coil to cap, and coil was replaced. I checked the distibutor by turning ignition key and observing the rotor turn. What else can I check. I did not observe a module.
