Question about 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Hi! Just a thought on this.... Please try this... Shift it to drive then stop then shift it to reverse. This may reset the transmission performance. Hope this helps and thank you for using FIxya!

Your query number 1. The problem with right turn could be due to improper wheel alignment. Please have it checked and rectified.
Query number 2. You must understand that the 4WD, when put in Low will have more power and less speed. Hence it should be engaged after slowing down. Also the N means Neutral. At N the vehicle will not move (if stationery). This is normal.

If you use 4WD on dry pavement, you may experience your tires jumping
occassionally in order to relieve tension that builds up in the transfer
case from the axles turning at a slightly different speed. This puts a
lot of strain on all components from the differentials to the drive
shafts, and most especially on the transfer case. You may, in fact,
total your transfer case by causing it to bind up. One axle is trying to
to make 1/2 rotation while the other wants to make a full rotation
after a turn in which the front wheels travel farther than the rear
Therefore, YOU MUST NEVER USE 4 HI or 4 LO ON DRY PAVEMENT.
Normally, you should leave your Jeep in 2H almost all the time. If you go off-road, and you need more traction, you can put the Jeep into 4H and have four wheel drive. These two gears are called "high" because they retain the standard gear ratio in the transfer case for normal operation at normal speeds. If you switch into Neutral, this is not the same as neutral in your transmission. It disengages the gears in the transfer case. Usually this is used when you want to tow the Jeep with some wheels touching the ground. It frees up the wheels completely from the engine output. Lastly is the mysterious 4L.
4L is very low gearing. Depending on your transfer case model, you get low or really low gears. The Jeep will not go very fast in this setting, but incredible amounts of power are delivered to the wheels for use in extreme conditions.

Yes, this is normal. When going in a tight circle then the inside tire doesn't have to turn near as many times as the outside tire. Which puts a strain on the front differential.
Shifting from 4 high to 4 low. You should come to a complete stop.Put the transmission in either park or neutral. Then shift to 4 low.
