Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

My 1994 jeep grand cherokee auto transmission just started getting stuck in first gear when starting from a stop. If I let off the gas for a second it will shift and run fine until I come to a stop again. It will also shift back down into first when starting to climb a hill.

Sounds like its related to the tourqe converter that is why it is not wanting to shift. Have you checked the fluid level yet?

SOURCE: I hear grinding noise when

I would suggest you need a transfer case. pull the bottom drain plug and see what comes out. could also be front spider gears if you have quadra trac. the front is what holds park not the rear on that setup. good luck

94 jeep grand cherokee, trannys slippg in 1s gear, added lucas stop slip, started next day, drve a few feet and it wont engage.......

Transmission might be fried. One suggestion, did you try putting it in 4WD and trying that? I had a Jeep come in, same thing, wont move, ended up being a blown transfer case. Put it in 4 hi or low, and see if it will go into gear and move. Long shot, but worth a try.

I hear grinding noise when shift into all gears of auto transmission and can push jeep when in park. 1994 grand cherokee. Help please.

open phone book to yellow pages. look under automobile repair-transmissions.
there is no magic button someone can tell you to push, you need a transmission repair and you
are not going to do it yourself. the transmission fulfilled its design life 7 years ago. you can most likely get a jeep 10 years newer for what you will spend on a transmission rebuild.
