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

Re: Taking a while to go into gear
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.

it will not shift right, so why do you skip scanning it.
what it the TCM tells you a speed sensors is borked.
why work blind.?scan it.first.
does it slip in 1st gear?
at 70mph that is called transmission flare, never a good sign that.
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.
