2 wheel high is rear wheel drive only. next one back is 4 wheel high.
Only position i wouldn't worry about is 4 low ...they usually get weird because it's used very rarely (NEARLY NEVER). There is no dipstick on a stick transmission you need to remove a plug on the drivers side of the unit to check that. The clunk and looseness is of concern as it could be a bad universal joint on any one of the driveshafts or axle shafts, or it could indicate a problem in either of the differentials. Joints aren't terrible
to repair but a differential is a lot of work and depending on what you are paying, it could be a deal breaker.

When I first start driving the transmission work fine ,then when I slow down it shifts into 2nd. and won't shift up again. So i stop the car , start it again and then it shifts fine again until I slow down...


I was told by a Chrysler tech that it's the shift solenoid located in the trans. pan. There are 4 of them and you have to have it checked to see which one. You don't want to replace all 4. About $80.00 at a dealer! Mine does the same thing. 2004 Concorde lxi.

Car drives and shifts, but theres a clunking noise


check the brake dust shield beind the rotor. That might be a good start. Not sure what you mean by clunking but also check your engine mounts bushing and sway bar bushing. Good luck

2004 Jeep Wrangler - Clunking Noise when shifting out of Park


It could be lash in the differential which is normal, but it could also be a loose u-joint in the driveshaft. Check the rear driveshaft u-joints.

have the transmission checked out,

quote http://www.aa1car.com/library/2002/bf90222.htm

One of the most common complaints with automatics is fluid leaks. Fluid can leak out of the driveshaft seals, the input shaft seal, the transmission pan gasket, the torque converter or the ATF cooler and line connections. If the fluid level gets low, the transmission may be slow to engage when it is shifted into drive. Gear shifts may be sloppy or delayed, or the transmission may slip between shifts

Tranny in my 1998 jeep wrangler takes off in second gear from dead stop if i punch it it will kick into drive it shifts fine after you start to move


The trans in your vehicle is a 3 speed auto,A904 model,also designated the 30RH or32RH.The trans is totally hydraulic,no electronic controls with the exception of tcc apply,aka,lockup.The vehicle shifts from throttle pressure and a governor.The governor is inside the tailhousing of the trans and is responsible for the road speed signal in this trans.If the valves in the governor start sticking,the vehicle will take off in 2nd gear.The valves can be cleaned,and sometimes jarred loose,but the more pressing concern is why are the valves sticking?The valves will start sticking when other parts of the trans starts making metal.So the governor sticking can sometimes be the symptom of a larger problem.Pull the trans pan and look for metal,and if so, how bad?One way to clear the governor of debris is to find an abandoned road or parking lot.At a complete stop,engage Reverse gear,and back up as fast as you dare.I have backed cars up at 20-30 mph before,but wouldn't recommend you to.This can blow debris out of the governor hydraulic circuits,and free the governor valves as highest line pressure inside the trans is obtained in Reverse gear.Good luck.
