Possible you have a simple problem such as a bad solenoid and or maybe some kind of engine coolant temp sensor problem.The v-8 engine in this year did not have true computer controls, it did have a solenoid for lock-up torque converter and a solenoid for overdrive.It was basically just and old tech hydraulic transmission with two solenoids.Most likely unless the transmission has been rebuilt properly before you are at the beginning of the end.No overdrive in this year model usually means the clutch in the torque converter has shredded and stopped up the cooler and melted the overdrive unit.I would have someone to pull diagnostic codes and see if there is anything stored.You may want to remove the transmission pan and inspect for debris in filter.Good luck!

Where is the thermostat on a 1996 jeep grand cherokee limited, with a V8


At the radiator, locate the large upper hose. Follow it to the engine. Where it connects to the engine, that is the thermostat housing.

I have 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 limited. There are different 4WD modes available. I was wondering which 4WD mode is the most fuel efficient and how do you engage the different 4WD modes?


4 wd part time is the most fuel efficient becuase it only engages when the tires start to spin. to engage the different 4wd modes pull up on the lever next to the shifter and you'll feel it engage into to its respected modes. recommended you engage the 4wd while moving slowly except for 4wd low full time which you need to put the shifter into neutral before you can engage it. remember 4 wd low full time is needed when none of the other modes work.

I just bought a 2004 grand cherokee V8 for my son. It has 4wd but the stick slides easily between 4wd all the time, Neutral and I'm wondering if that means it's not working? The whole point of buying was...


Not sure what you mean by "4wd all the time, Neutral".
But I can tell you how it's supposed to operate.

The three modes are 2wd, 4wd high and 4wd low. When switching between 2wd and 4wd high it makes no difference whether the Jeep is moving or in neutral. The only condition that needs to be obseved when switching from 2 to 4 high is the speed of the Jeep. It should not be done above 45mph.
The switch from 4wd high to 4wd low is a different animal. The Jeep must be stopped and in neutral. Also you should be aware that it is not a pleasant sound or feel when moving from high to low so you should worry to much about the lowed junking sound.
At times it may even be necessary to put the lever back to the high position and move the Jeep a couple feet to align gears before it goes into low.

This is the reason for the relative ease when switching from 2wd to 4wd high.
There is an art to switching from 2wd to 4wd high then to 4wd low. Once your son becomes familiar with the Jeep and begins using the different modes it will become easier.
I would like to add one more piece of advice. After building Jeeps for over 25 years and owning several I have found that 8 out of 10 times that 4wd low is used, it's used incorrectly or not needed at all. It's a good idea to find someone who has experience with 4wd to give a bit of instruction on how it should be used. Especially in the mountains.
Let me know if you need any clarification on anything.
I hope this helps.

I have a v8 grand cherokee manufactured 12/95 and i need to know gear ratios/part number to replace my transfer case (it ripped apart and fell off...awesome). thanks!


Should only be 1 or 2 cases that fit behind the v8. It is going to be determined by if you have auto 4WD, or manual. Gear ratios should be similar between the 2.
