Question about 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee, automatic,4.0, 4x4, - Makes a jerking motion almost as if it goes out of gear for 2 seconds and kicks back in). But it only does it on SHARP left hand turns only. It changes gears great and if I shift from 1st, 2nd and drive manually gears change great also. Only sharp left hand turns. Now if I go really slow and just barely push the gas pedal on the sharp left hand turn , then it doesn't do it.

Check your transmission fluid level. If the unit is low, the oil sloshes away from the pickup and a burp of air runs through the unit causing momentary slippage. if you go around the same turn slower that doesn't happen. In rare cases an internal shaft bushing or seal can be bad and the shaft can move having the same result...but as I said, that's rare.

4.7L V8. Why is there dashbord noise under the compartment in the passenger side every time I turn off the ignition?


It is the evaporator control module, it's the piece that controls the heat and air for your car, it's basically a flap that goes back and forth when you change the temperature. The plastic gears that turn it are bad. Easy fix

Here is an article I found talking about the Transmission. The second generation Grand Cherokee: 1999-2004 Jeep WJ The first Grand Cherokee was redesigned in 1999, for lower production cost and greater performance and reliability; it was Chrysler's first use of an electronic bus to replace individual wires throughout the body.

Jeep five-speed automatic transmission

An all-new, electronically-controlled transmission with five forward ratios including an alternate second gear ratio for improved performance for passing and better fuel economy is available with the V-8 only, and was designed specifically for Jeeps.

The transmission features unique characteristics such as a tall, 3.00:1 first gear that gives the driver better initial acceleration. Real-time driver adaptive shifting fine-tunes the shift pattern to the driver, while an alternate second gear ratio gives the driver five forward ratios. During acceleration, second gear has a ratio of 1.67. Depending on speed and throttle position, both this gear and an alternate 1.50 second gear ratio are available for kick-down operation, making the down-shift smoother. Its reverse gear ratio is equal to the first gear ratio, to allow for heavier loads.

Other features include three planetary gear sets that combine the widest range of gear ratios available in any transmission in its class. Combined with precise step selections, this brings smooth shifts and maximum power and optimal fuel economy.

The transmission is built at the Indiana Transmission Plant in Kokomo, Indiana, in an all-new 1.2-million square-foot (110,000 m2) facility.

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee makes a lot of noise when selecting Reverse. Forward gear okay. Now, reverse doesn't work and it sounds like the transmission is coming apart.


Your automatic transmission has an internal low and indirect clutch. The indirect clutch is what's used when your vehicle is in reverse. You might have a heavy jerking when you put it into gear that feels like vehicle got hit by another or loud rattling or chattering in gears. It very well may be coming apart as you think and soon, so I'd recommend taking it to your local transmission shop to inspect and test it and they can give you a more detailed idea of what it would take to fix it. good luck

Check your transmission fluid level to make sure the appropriate amount of fluid is in. Some transmissions will **** or cut the vechicle off if not enough fluid is in the transmission.

Transmission Slight Jerking When Slowing & Accelerating


Have you changed the trasmission fluid and filter in your jeep lately, if not do so and that just might stop the jerking in your jeep, and if that does not do the trick you will need to have your trasmission checked out by a trasmission shop.
