Sounds like you have a linkage problem, possibly a set of worn bushings or.....the first/reverse syncros are going bad(this requires the transmission to come down and apart)...those transmission syncro items may fall under a power train warrantee, (but possibly not if you are over the mileage and time limits) if the syncros are the problem you may want the clutch assembly looked at for possible wear and tear, and have it replaced at the same time the transmission comes out, if there are a lot of miles on it as well, the labor to replace the clutch is like 75% done once they remove the transmission for repair(mileage varies on clutch wear depending upon how a vehicle is driven, worn clutches can go 25,000 to 60,000 miles before having problems) however i suggest you take it into the dealer to have them diagnose the cause first and to keep you informed before doing any further repairs.(allow them a set price for diagnostic time which usually is refunded or applied to the repair once the cause is determined)
If you don't want the dealership to do your work i suggest a reputable transmission shop, you may pick one from friends word of mouth reviews and experiences.
Hope this helps!!!

    Power train warrantees usually are good for 5yrs or 50,000 miles from the date of delivery of the vehicle to you, whichever comes first.

My 2003 Jeep grand cherokee will not move in reverse. I can hear and feel it switch into reverse but the vehicle doesn't move.


I'm gonna try this one from memory( but you should really should use the repair manual)Sounds like the output shaft ,ideler gear or reverse gear is worn. This repair is gonna involve a tranny tear down. I suggest you have it serviced by an ASE Certified Transmission Technician. They will get it right the first time.

Reverse does not engage


Most of the time when a Transmission is about to go out the Reverse will go first. and it may only be the reverse that doesn't work for weeks to months before the transmission finally drops

IT COULD BE SOLENOID PACK OR THE GOVERNOR AND TRANSDUCER OR LOW FLUID OR THE MOST COMMON REPAIR SPEEDS SENSORS INPUT/OUTPUT. ALL OF THESE CONTROLS THE SHIFTING. START WITH THE SENSORS FIRST, VERY COMMON.
