Question about 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2 Answers

1999 jeep grand cherokee. I had a bad input speed sensor. I replaced it and changed the filters. I added 5 qts of fluid so far and the dipstick registers over full. The wheels now do not turn. Is there a vacuum in the trans not allowing it to pump. I even lifted the rearend and spun the tires. Nothing. Any ideas?

You have to check the fluid with the engine running. Is there is a chance that you have had the filter dislodge and not actaully connected?

My Automatic grand cherokee limited 4.7litres (1999 Model) runs on only one gear without changing on diagnosing the error code P0731 ( gear 1 incorrect ratio) was reported

If you have a scan tool capable of looking at input and output speed sensor data for the transmission that is the first thing I would look at. If you don't than it wouldn't hurt to try a new input speed sensor. They are available from your local NAPA. The speed sensors are located on the drivers side of the transmission. They are a light yellowish white color. it will have a black connector with two wires. The one towards the front is the input speed sensor the one to the rear is the output speed sensor. you will need a 1"socket to remove it.

If replacing the sensor doesn't fix it you will need to bring it in and have it looked at.

The speed sensors are pretty common failures on Chrysler transmissions.

My 1999 jeep grand cherokee sometimes shifts wrong

check to see if your fluid is low or burnt. if it is low then just add enough to cover the fill mark on the dipstick. if it is burnt, remove the transmission pan and filter and replace the filter. then add new transmission fluid.

I have a 1999 jeep grand cherokee laredo and it shutters from 1-2-3.

Mo Par has a specific trans fluid type that is supposed to eliminate chatter. It is supposed to be compatible with dextron III but sometimes that will not work. There also is an additive that can be used but I actually can't remember what it's called. Also, most units will work well with synthetic flluids (I use either Amsoil or B&M racing fluid Both expensive, but worth the added protection) When replacing fluid, remember the pan only contains a bit less than half of what's in there. I generally do a complete filter and fluid change using standard fluid, then about a week later, drain the pan from the plug, fill it with better fluid (synthetic)...about a month later I repeat that to increase percentage of synthetic to a higher level. This is not cheap, but I have had good success in doing this. After final change I also use lucas trans additive.
Even with the added expense, it still is far cheaper than a rebuild.
If after initial change there is no improvement at all (give it a day or two), I'd not bother with folowing through though because likely there is a real internal problem that needs attention (rebuild). Don't discard second and third fluid from replacement. Save it and use to top off any other vehicles you have and it can also be re-used on subsequent changes to other vehicles that use same type fluid.(just make sure you don't get any dirt in it)

I need the number of quarts of automatic transmission fluid needed for a fluid and filter change

it holds 5 qts, also it uses a certain type of fluid, if it has a 4.0 L it uses puls 3 type fluid, if it has the 4.7 engine then it uses plus 4 type trany fluid, it does it matter on the amount , both engines use the same amount of trany fluid which again is 5 qts, hope this helps and good luck.
