Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Taking a while to go into gear

I have a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. it has a 4.0 straight 6 with 175,000 miles. full time 4wd and an automatic transmission. my question is sometimes after starting it, it dosent feel like its in gear. it goes but very slow then it kicks in, it also does that when leaving a stop sign and the engine dosent feel very powerful. i know its a 6cyl but even when i stomp on it it just feels very underpowered for being rated at 190hp

    I have the same issue. Once I check the fluid level, if it is full, what else can I do just shy of replacing the whole thing or having it rebuilt? Someone mentioned some sort of sensor or something that could also cause this.

    This was not really what I was looking for. I was wondering what sensor, if any, could be causing this in a transmission. However, it looks like I'm going to have to shell out the $1000.00 to get it done anyway.

Check the fluid level of the transmission.The model number in your vehicle is the A500,also designated the 42RE.With this trans,the fluid level is checked with the trans in Neutral,and the parking brake set,with the vehicle on level ground.If it is low on fluid,then there is a leak that must be located,and repaired.

I have a 93 jeep grand cherokee laredo it has 4all time neutral and 4lo should i keep it in 4all time all the time or does that ruin it


Yes, Your Jeep is what is known as a Quadra-Trac. This type of cherokee is an all wheel drive model. 4 wheel all time is for everyday driving, Neutral completely dissconects the drive train from the transmission and will not move at all. 4 wheel low is more for off road conditions where traction is compromised. 4 wheel low should NEVER be used at speed above 15 miles an hour.

To the guy above: 4 wheel drive is designed for low end pulling power and safer handling on slippery road conditions. 4 wheel drive has NOTHING to do with how fast you go or how fast you stop. Don't post a comment if you clearly don't know the correct information.

MY 2005 JEEP CHEROKEE LAREDO JUST STOPED DRIVING


If engine sounds okay, (when you accelerate, it revs up, etc.) then could be a transmission problem. (assume this is an automatic?)

Check fluid level first, if okay, next suggestion would be to change fluid & filter.

When you select a gear, do you get anything, any slight jolt to the vehicle?

If nothing at all, also might check the transmission lever linkage.

Is this 4WD or 2WD? If 4WD, also need to check transfer case setting, make sure it is properly set.
