Sounds like a bad out speed sensor.Are you sure you replaced the correct sensor?This trans(AW340)Has an output speed sensor and a vehicle speed sensor.The output speed sensor is located on the side of tail housing just next to where it bolts to transmission case.The vehicle speed sensor will be about midway of the tail housing or on the transfer case tail housing on the 4x4 models.It may be a good idea to have a tranny shop you trust run a diagnostic and see if you are getting output sensor signal to TCM( transmission control module behind glove box)and take a look at TPS (throttle position sensor)signal when it is hot to make sure you replace the correct part.I have seen bad TPS sensors on these jeep not affect engine drivability because the sensor is really two(one for trans and one for engine)thus the two plugs on the TPS sensor for the automatic Cherokee.Good Luck and let me know if I can help.

My 2002 Altima SL 2.5 drives and shifts fine for an hour or so. Then it won't shift from first gear.


In spite of what Firestone did it still sounds like you have a defective speed sensor. Other people have also had this problem and it was solved by replacing the speed sensor.

I hope it resolves your problem.

Which trans do you have??? The 4.7 has the 45RFE and the 4.0 has the 42RE. If you have the 42RE, try replacing the connector on the output speed sensor. I have seen intermittent problems with the connectors as they get older leading to falling into low gear and not shifting up
