#1 of 1070 Grand Cherokee transmission problem
Dec 09, 2006 (1:29 pm)
I have a 1998 JGC with Quadra Trak. When cold, I can be driving down the road, pushing down on the gas pedal when suddenly I'm coasting, the engine will rev when I push down on the gas but the transmission won't engage. I have to continue pushing on the gas pedal and letting off until finally it will engage and away I go. Anyone have any ideas of what this could be. It did it last winter and again this winter but never had a problem in the warm weather.

When was the last time the tranny fluid was changed? Sounds to me like you could have some water in the fluid that is freezing in cold water. A tranny that doesn't have enough fluid in it will do the same thing, only it will do it all the time.
#3 of 1070 Grand Cherokee Laredo engine dies after running 15-20 miles.

Going down the highway, my engine dies, I have figured out it is not getting fire from the coil. After it cools off it starts again and runs good for a little while longer. I get a code of "11" on my display. Can yo tell me what to look for to repair.

I wish that was the problem but I don't think it is since it doesn't have to be freezing for it to do this - just cold. My husband cleaned the filter and pan and found shavings in the pan also. Any other ideas of what could be going on?
#5 of 1070 2005 jeep grand cherokee transmission PROBLEMS!
Dec 20, 2006 (1:18 pm)
Hi I'm new to this forum. I purchased a 2005 jeep grand cherokee with the 4.7 v8, in may of 2006 it only had 9800 miles on it. Since June of 2006 I had experienced a delay when putting the truck in reverse after it sat for a period of time. I brought it to the dealer and they did a transmission cooler filter update (which supposedly was the problem). I still had the same problem, brought it back they did "another" update, well that turned out to be the same update. Since then I am still experiencing the same problem, slipping when putting it in reverse when the truck sits. I just had it to the dealer for other problems (exhaust manifold leaks, sun roof not working, climate control head lights not working differential noises, and engine noise on cold start). The fix everything but the transmission problem, engine noise and differential noise. The transmission problem the service manager told me is "normal" that you have to start the truck let it sit for approx. 30 seconds than put it in reverse that the problem I am having is normal. Any body experience this problem? and what solutions were found Please help. Im sick of the dealer run around

I am experiencing this probelm also. When I went to dealer they stated that I need to get my transmission flushed. I too have a 2005 JGC. I have been traveling a lot so my miles are now over 30K; however, this vehicle should not be doing this. I am also experiencing problems with the 4wd system however they are unable to determine what the problem is.
#7 of 1070 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee trans problems
Dec 29, 2006 (8:00 am)
I have had problemn with tranmission slipping and is getting worse. When going down the road the car shudders from time to time as if the engine and trans are missing each other. We have had this car since new and are meticulous in our maint. The car repair place we had been going to said it was just wear problems but the shuddering is getting worse and I'm afraid the car is becoming unsafe. The rest of the car looks and acts brand new and engine is in top shape. Am I missing somethin here? Trans problem or something else. Should I put a new trans in? We'd like to keep it for a good spare vehicle.

Let me tell you from experiance freind to never ever be gotton again reading all these post makes me feel as if i am reading my onw "jeep life stories" for the past two year. I have a 2000 GJC Limited and when i bout it i loved how it looked it looked great - I was a little hesitant to buy it because I did not feel right about it for some reason i don't know i belive it was becasue of how it shifted in and out of gears which wasn't a brilliant smoth transision I did buy - I convinced myself that I was being to picky and bought the darn car. What in the world was i thinking guys the same thing happens to me when i'm on the road the jeep acts like it some times dosen't want to get out of second gear and it rushes high and cathes itslef all the time - now get this - I have taken this car to the dealer many many many many times and have asked what in the heck is wrong with this car they all tell me it this or its that I ask is it the trans they say no they say just get it serviced sir well I've done that and it still slipps and acts sick mean while the dealer wants to brainwash me into thinging that all is ok - all is not ok I have spent over 2500+ plus on this vehichle replacing parts to serviding the jeep yet still I am never without these dumb slipps - i am more than conveniced that this is no longer a small problem with the jeep but that chrysler has really put together a terrible car for there customers how dare them put me through all this how dare them - I am more certain that these jeeps are more like trash than good runing SUVs when i read the ladies post above she has a 2005 JGC and her is acting stupid too - I wonder do the people actrully drive these cars they seel i'm mean really if they did they burn them all up because they are useless - us consumers spend thousands of dallars for these cars and many of us are told by the very sells people "hey great car, no need to worry itall run like a pearl...." this is a bunch of hog waist they do everything but run like a pearl they run absolutly terrible! I will be done paying for my jeep this year! you can be sure I will never ever purchase another JEEP!

Likely a Throttle position sensor
