Question about 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Some Jeeps will do that. When you feel the engine beginning to work too hard, lightly tap the brake pedal. That will disengage the overdrive. On long steep hills, shift into normal drive (3rd gear).
Also try flooring the gas on a straghtaway and see if the kick down is working. If not, try lengthening or adjusting the kickdown cable.
If what I just said has no effect, run a code scan. Could be that the MAP sensor isn't working properly, or some other sensor is out of range.
I have four Jeeps and all of them do that and run perfectly. Jeep is a bit conservative when it comes to the kickdown position. After a while what I mentioned becomes part of "normal procedure" when driving.
