Question about 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Open Question

My Jeep revs up to 3000 rpm before shifting into first gear, the other gears seem fine, but when it shifts back into first, it shifts hard. Couls this be as simple as the fluid level, or does it sound more serious?

SOURCE: 02 jeep liberty won't shift into 3rd or 4th gear.

Ratio codes generally indicate a pressure loss & slipping which the computer reads as a gear ratio problem. Likely you need a rebuild.

SOURCE: engine will not rev above 3000 rpm

Inadequate fuel pressure, change the fuel filter first, make sure the car sits for at least two hours before replacing the fuel filter because these fuel lines are under high pressure during the time of operation. The pressure usually decreases over time in the lines but wear safety glasses just the same, I would recomend depressurizing the fuel system first, buy a Haynes repair manual for detailed procedure to be safe. If problem persists go to Auto Zone and ask them to check for trouble codes these codes if present may instuct you in detail to replace the MAF sensor or give you a code that must be looked up to find the problem.

SOURCE: p1613 fault code & engine will not rev over

Crank sensor or engine speed sensor is faulty.

Fault:
Irregular power loss on accelerating
The speed of the engine is limited till 2500rpm
Frequent loss of crankshaft position sensor signal

Cause:
It is caused due to leaking from thermostat housing into crankshaft position sensor harness multi-plug

Remedy:
Check and clean the crankshaft position sensor harness multi-plug contacts. Rectify the engine coolant leak from the thermostat housing if found. Take a note of the engine coolant level and monitor it for changes, showing a leak is indeed occurring.

I have a 1996 pontiac bonneville 3800 and when I put it in drive to take off It will rev to 3000 rpm before taking off. It doesn't shift hard through any gears and seems to run fine after 20 mph.


Usually dirty transmission fluid/filter (no noises) You can try adding a full bottle of Lucas Oil Transmission Stabilizer fluid...you don't need to drain anything...(could also just be low tranny fluid) Follow the instructions, warm tranny, motor running...add full bottle...manually shift through gears...The cost is about $11. even at Walmart...Hope this helps.

My avalanche won't shift


Sounds like a broken internal trany part. Take it out and shift it through the gears manually to see which gears work and where it revs up. The second and fourth gears are the ones that tend to not work.

Auto Transmission 2000 Rodeo


It seems that the trans is slipping. The smell is from excess trans flood. If Trans is over filled, it can rupture seals and cause leaking that can get on the exhaust and burn.
