1993 grand cherokee torq converter staying locked in

I have a 4.0l 4x4 with auto od. the problem is when the vehicle is warm the torq stays locked and stalls the motor out at a stop. it is worse in reverse.
is there any way to fix or bypass this like in the chevys by unpluging something.

When was the last time you replaced the fluid in it? also, as mine did, you could have some burs causing stuff to stick, had to grind some of those off manually (even in the trans.) it may be as simple as replacing the fluid, but more likely its a lot worse than that by now

My oil pressure is 20 at idle and sometimes drops to 0. It stays at 40 while driving and it runs fine, no loss of power, Oil level is fine, no knocking noises.

Chances are that the sending unit has a problem. Could also be a loose wire on it. Only way to test is to put a mechanical gauge on the engine and read actual pressure, or, just replace the sender and see if it helps. No noises from the engine is a good sign. If you had any tapping or knocking, putting a mechanical gauge on there would pretty much be mandatory.

I was wondering what rpm should my tacometer be at when going 70 mph? it seems high and im not sure if transmission is dropping into the final gear. the overdrive doesnt work either, is it stuck in...

Cruising speed rpm should be roughly 2200 rpm If OD (lockup) is not engaging it will be running at about 3,000rpm.
If it was staying engaged, you would not have a problem at cruising speed but would be "lugging" when taking off from a standstill. OD should come on at about 45mph and the tach should show a drop in rpm.

I have a 1993 Grand Cherokee that runs not more than 30 miles, i already change the tranny 3 times and is the same problem. How i can make it to run good?

Your not even close to explaining whats going on. Is it a tranny issue or is it an engine issue. If it does the same thing after 3 trannys it prabably isnt a tranny issue unless you have a bad torqe converter that hasnt been changed yet.

93 grand cherokee 5.2 all time 4wd wont stay runing when put in gear

It sounds like the torque converter is locked up. Possible a bad torque converter or converter solenoid. First thing you should try is unplugging the solenoid plug on the transmission. Drivers side, near the shifter. Not the three pin connector near the pan on the same side. The connector you want is higher than the reverse light plug.

1993 jeep grand cherokee..trans wont shift into 4th gear if electrical any help?

By 4th gear, you mean O/D? Did you change the converter? Also, check the brake light switch: the circut there disengages the od...if it's always open od won't work!
