#1064 of 1100 1993 Jeep transmisssion issues
Apr 23, 2013 (1:02 pm)
My daughters Jeep GC is behaving oddly. I the got a call from her tow was on the way because it was struck in traffic. By the time I got there It was working fine and was able to get home. After home since then the trans mission has worked intermittently, able to move forward and in reverse but never far. Checked the fluid and it was ok. I was talking to someone who suggested that it may be a clogged tranny filter and to replace it with the fluid. She has not a lot of money to put into inspection, especially seeing a 19 year old girl come through the door. I can do some work i.e replace a filter but that's about it. any ideas Jeepsters or any tranny Guys?

DId you get the above problem figured out? I got a Jeep GC 00 4.0L Drove it about 30 Mile today no problems or noise. Later drove it about 5 mi and on the way home it wouldnt shift out of 1st. I just had it serviced about a year ago. Checked fluid level it was fine all though it has air bubbles in it. I coded it out and got P 720 P0720 (M)
Low Output SPD Sensor RPM Above 15 MPH
The relationship between the Output Shaft Speed Sensor and vehicle speed is not within acceptable limits.
Any Idea's?? Thanks All!!

#1068 of 1100 04 shifts into drive while stopped at a redlight..
May 24, 2013 (8:24 am)
Never had a minutes problem with my 2004 JGC 4.0 with 118,000,until I was about 45 miles away from the house,I was sitting at a redlight of course with my foot on the brake waiting for the light to change and it felt like someone rolled into the back of me gentley,just felt like it wanted to take off,well when the light turned green I went to take off and it was in drive,or 3rd gear,I pulled it down manually and proceeded on.
It doesn't do it all the time,I changed the fluid and filter,pan was clean and oiled smelled fine.
But you can feel it shift while I am stopped,when it does that, it takes off in drive,thanks for any help?
I am not sure what transmission I have.

I have a 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo and it has recently had several problems. It started overheating more frequently even after I repeatedly fill it up with coolant/ water weekly. I was on my way home from work the other day and it started overheating. So I stopped the car and there was smoke every where. I waited for a good ten minutes until the smoke cleared and the thingy wasn't hot. Then I put more water in it and it ran fine. The next day it started overheating again but it also started to click and not in the way that there is little oil because the oil is at the safe area. It also dies a lot when it starts to overheat. I am crazy con fused on what is happening to it nd I need some advice.

Hello-I have a 2000 Laredo 4 cylinder with 145,000 miles. It recently started to accelerate on its own. It's slight and it just started today. I put it in cruise and hovered over the pedal. Sure enough, it was accelerating a bit and then going back to normal, same when not in cruise.
I have a few other problems(I am illiterate about vehicles so bear with me), it doesn't feel right underneath my feet when I drive. I have been driving for over 20yrs and haven't felt this before. It almost feels as if something is grinding? I'm sure that's not the case but sure how else to describe it. My engine ticks and the dealership mechanic couldn't figure it out.
Just had breaks changed because they were sticking, still feels that way. I have a new electrical system put in because the alternator blew and fried it. And a gasket was leaking so it had to be drained of oil and replaced, it was underneath so dont ask me what it was lol. I love my jeep and want to keep it even.
tho it kills me in gas(45 miles to work one way). Anyone else have any of these issues?

I have a Jeep grand Cherokee 2009. 86K in total, looks like when I accelerate the transmission just gets stuck as though there is a limit? it wont go over 60mph.
what could the problem be?
