Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee Sport

2 Answers

Transmission when driving trans shifts fine thru gears (automatic). But when you come to a stop it will not shift down into 1st gear. So I put shifter into 1st and take off then after moving I slide shifter into drive and it shifts thru the gears just fine. Evertime I come to stop I have to manually shift into !st then back to drive. Iam sure it is a shifrt modul, but after removing oil pan I find ther 3 modul, Whitch one should I replace..

    If there was a sticky piston why would you think it whould even go into 1st. You never answered my question. whitch selonoid controls the down shifting.

    My question I guess is which one of the seloniods controls the shifting, especially which one controls the down shifting, When you come to a stop which value is it there are three?

I would suggest first connect a scanner to the diagnostic port of the computer module of the transmission of the car. Some shops out there would let you borrow scanners for you to retrieve the error code. The error would help identify the issue accurately. Autozone would let you borrow theirs.
The shifting issue may be caused at times by the transmission solenoid. The one that is circular and looks like an electric motor on your transmission. At times it may just be hydraulic problems. You may just need to change the fluid and filter.

    I would suggest then to have the computer module for the transmission scanned for errors if you can. Some shops would offer scanner services for free so we can accurately solve the issue. Unless there is the possibility of swapping the modules one at a time with known working ones to isolate the problem I am suspecting the solenoid because it operates by sending pressure for gear changes.

You have a sticky piston in the valve body instead. If the 1st gear solenoid module was at fault it will not even work in that gear at all even manually controlled

Manually shift thru all gears up & down the scale. Try adding Motorcraft Additive Friction Modifier, available from Ford parts dept. This REALLY STINKS!!! Don't get any on you. Pour into trans fluid. Drive a few miles shifting manually thruthe gears, then do a normal start stop drive several times. This will luburcate trans, normally used for differential but has worked in automatic transmissions of all makes for years. Otherwise mechanical problem for transmission repair facility.

How does the 97 dodge intrepid auto shift work?


when in auto shift mode you place gear selector in auto shift and as you drive you are in control of upshifting and down shifting, when you want to shift up you slide shifter to the right and to down shift you slide shifter to the left, but also know that the vehicle will up shift on its own if rps are to high and will not downshift all the way back to first, and try not to take off in higher gears that nwill burn the transmission
