    Sounds like a transmission it full?

  • mabooth Sep 06, 2010

    Vehicle was serviced a Jeep Dealer, they changed the transmission filter and fluid. It was fine foe about 2 1/2 weeks. Was in a parking lot the vehicle was in drive moving forward, the vehicle motor was still running but stopped moving forward. I moved the gear shift into all gears and it still wouldn't move forward.

    is it full?

  • mabooth Sep 06, 2010

    What do you mean by "Is it full"?

  • Richard Scordino Sep 06, 2010

    have you verified that the transmission fluid level is full???

  • mabooth Sep 06, 2010

    The transmission fluid and filter was changed after the first time it did this and it was fine for about 2 1/2 weeks then it did it again. The fluid was full before it was changed, that was the first thing we checked

  • Richard Scordino Sep 07, 2010

    Changing the fluid after there is a problem nearly never fixes the problem, especially when dealing with an automatic transmission. You need the dealer or a competent transmission shop to do a diagnostics on that. There really are no "at home' repairs or things to test there.

  • mabooth Sep 08, 2010

    Jeep dealer is the one who changed the fluid and filter and said that was the problem.

  • Richard Scordino Sep 08, 2010

    If the dealers diagnosis is correct, then ask yourself one question....why isn't it fixed???
    Obviously they were not correct...ya think?

  • mabooth Sep 08, 2010

    That is why I was asking for suggestions.

If you still have any warranty on the vehicle, bring it back to the dealer and have them go over it again. If not, or if you don't like the dealer you are working with, bring it to a good transmission shop
(check references...some trans shops are not reliable).
As I mentioned before, transmissions and their control systems are not user friendly items and really need a pro to diagnose properly.
The problem you are having can have many causes spanning internal pressure loss or mis-direction to an external control malfunctioning. A good shop will put a "flight recorder" scanner on the unit and run it to see where the problem is and also knows that certain readings can be misleading but also knows what causes those readings.
Most general repair shops do not have the equipment or expertise to do that and many dealers would rather just replace a unit with a factory rebuild rather than invest the time involved and expense of hiring a transmission specialist to do rebuild work.
I went to school to learn automatic transmissions but in running large shops, the only units I ever bothered with were my own...i used that info to deal intelligently with the outsource shops I used. That way, I managed to provide my customers with only the best work, preserving my reputation.
After you have a diagnosis done, you have any questions, ask and I'll help if I can!!!

I have removed the thermostart of my grand cherokee jeep 1996,i still experience temperature rising while i am in hold up or traffic but reduces as soon as i accelerate.

the thermostat was not the problem but the viscous fan hub ( fan clutch) is
while it is spinning , there is no drive action when idling ( as at lights , slow traffic , hills in low gear etc) and so it is not pulling air through the radiator when needed
your statement that the temp reduces as soon as you start moving means that with forward movement the air is flowing through the radiator and cooling the coolant

At a stop the jeep want to shift or lunge forward

If it is dropping out of gear and back in at stops, this could just be low fluid. If the fluid is good, look at cleaning the inside of the throttle body, to include the back of the throttle valve. Build up clings here and air restriction can cause the IAC motor to do funny things.

Truck strains to move forward when starting from a stop.

Glad to help. Check those brake linings for any signs of burning...If they have been running too tight it is possible that they have overheated a bit. Also check the emergency brake cable for binding sometimes they get rusted up and stick.

Noise ... raddle

When the engine is cold, go under the car and try to shake the exhaust system at the approximate spot you hear the rattle coming from. It is most likely a heat shield for the exhaust, or a broken (rusted through) hanger for the exhaust making the noise you describe. You can probably correct it with a wire or couple of screws to secure the shield, or replace a hanger.
