Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Tranny failed '96 Grand Cherokee Orvis Edition

Driving along in town, felt like someone shifted me into neutral, but still in drive, transmission wouldn't engage. No noise or thumping, just silent failure as if in neutral. Went back into gear for a short time, then failed again. Tried reverse, worked once then failed, sometime grinding noise in reverse. Would not engage any gear after all, got it towed home, wondering what happened, solution, costs. Michael.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee transmission no forward has good reverse fluid level good color good no burnt smell. No slipping prior was coasting up on light it turned green and when I hit the gas nothing


Okay, first check the linkage going from the shifter to the tranny. Block the wheels and have someone watch the shift linkage on the trans while shifting. Maybe it's just loose, broken, or stripped. If linkage is good, it's either your shifter solenoids or torque converter

96 camaro stops moving on drive for no reason


I just had the same problem my truck felt as though it shifted into neutral after transmission got hot and then when it cooled it shifted normal, transmission lost high gear.
if your car starts right away the maybe its your neutral safety switch.
hope this helps, I am not a transmission guy, just what I would check first.

1997 grand cherokee orvis 44r3 tranny, no 4th gear up shift, pressure overdrive piston is 65 psi, would the overdrive solenoid partially stuck open would cause loss of pressure? Air pressured overdrive...


They had a lot of problems with the pressure sensors. I would replace the whole tail shaft because they had problems with them. You don't have to remove the trans to remove the shaft. Get one from the junk yard. Hope this helps leave comment.

Speedometer does not always work 95 cherokee orvis need help


Sounds like the speedo sensor needs to be replace on the transmission. I've had a similar problem with my Jeep with the sopeedo not working then work after the tranny heats up then after a period of time the needle started to jump when at 100 km or 60 mph. I changed the sensor and the problem went away. Good luck!

HI, It may seem obvious, but sometimes overlooked.... have you checked the oil level, as low oil can cause some strange things to happen! My 96 4 liter would be reluctant to move sometimes, but after I topped it up, it has been fine.

We bought a 1995 jeep grand cherokee orvis edition...the truck will not go into reverse...it makes a wierd grinding noise


Be sure that the truck is fully engaged in two wheel drive. It may have slipped out of gear on the transfer-case. Move the lever for 2 and 4 wheel drive back and forth a few times before shifting transmission.Good luck
