Question about 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I have a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee that will move forward when I put it in drive but wont go in reverse.

It was driving just fine in drive and reverse then one day I got in it to go to work and I couldn't even back out of my driveway. It would drive forward with no hesitation but won't back up. When I put it in gear I can feel it grab like it is going to do something but just won't. If it is in reverse and I put my foot on the gas my engine just revs up like im n neutral.

Sounds like an internal problem.

No, not with out a lot of work. Electronics are most likely different on the 2 also.

Service the transmission and when you have the pan off, adjust the reverse band. It is either out of adjustment or worn out. Try the adjustment first and if it doesn't get any better, you'll have to have the transmission rebuilt.

SOURCE: transmission

Check your rear emergency brakes. A brake shoe pin could have broke and the shoe locks up in 1 direction. but not the other. The other problem you mentioned could happen, but if it is in reverse the trans shifted.
