My jeep drives fine when cold in the morning, but when the tempeture reaches normal operating tempeture it will not go forward or backwards, the dipstick shows that it is i pint over full when in neutral. From reading all of the blogs. they say to check the tps sensor, or the governor control solenoid? The answer in "none" of these. If the Jeep moves Backwards it not a sensor, or control solenoid problem. It's an internal fluid pressure problem. You must rebuild it or get a good used replacement. Sorry the bad news.
#317 of 1068 95 grand cherokee overdrive situation
Feb 19, 2009 (6:02 pm)
My transmission won't shift into O.D. I changed fluid and filter checked fuses still nothing I pulled the plug off the back of the O.D. on/off switch plugged it in and it worked, the next day same thing no O.D., I unplugged switch and retried it but nothing. The indicator light only works on/off if the vehicle isn't running, When its running the light comes on right away then goes off but still wont shift into O.D. no response from switch (engine and trans are at operating temp)

I also have a 2006 JGC, and I have the same issue at stop lights. Not every stop light, just when I have been running at highway speeds for what seems 5 or minutes. I have also thought that I needed to put in neutral, but i have left it in gear and it never shuts off, just feels like it.
#321 of 1068 03 4.7v8 Vibration /shutter Transmission ??
Feb 28, 2009 (11:56 am)
I have this Vibration /shutter. Its been doing it for 5 months now. I'm not sure how it started or really when but I think it may started from when I had to give it a lot of gas from not getting hit from someone?? I also had to have the throttle body replaced before then too. Its a 03 4.7v8 with 36 thousand miles on it. I have taken it to the dealer 3 times. Had the 30,000 tune up done also. I also get engine Vibration sitting still with in park and rebbing it to 1300rpm -1700rpm that's were it really like to vibrate in that area. I can feel it in the steering wheel and pedal when driving as well. So I don't know what it could be. The dealer just says it normal, the maint guy said it feels like a Jeep. I think it may be the Transmission ?? That acts up too, when I shift from R to D it will want to die some times??? some times when it shifts from 1st to 2nd or 2nd to 3rd I get a shutter.Will the Transmission make the car Vibrate /shutter when driving and sitting in park?? Any ideas? I don't know what I should try next. I hate to drive it on long trips because the Vibration /shutter is so annoying and maybe doing damage to something. Other than that the engine runs strong.
Please if anyone can help with any ideas.
#322 of 1068 Question about 4x4 problems(possible transmission)
Mar 02, 2009 (9:16 pm)
My 2004 jeep grand cherokee is equipped with a quadratrac II transmission. It has recently began to lock up on me. Earlier today it locked up completely. I checked the transmission fluid level and it is good. Is this a problem with the transmission or possibly the 4 wheel drive?

it could be a number of things, but it's probably the transfer case (since it's all-time AWD) or the transmission. please provide more details.

When I start my 2006 Jeep GC (less tha 30k miles) and start moving on a cold day it's fine, but the very first time I stop at a light or stop sign, when I give it gas the engine revs and the vehicle barely moves. Giving it more gas doesn't help, you have to let off and proceed slowly untill it resolves itself, usually within 5 to 6 seconds. Once it does this it usually doesn't occer againg until the car sits overnight, but on occasion it has happen again even when the car warms up. Even though it's auto trans with full time 4WD, it's as if the clutch was slipping on a standard transmission vehicle.
#325 of 1068 Late, slow shifting on 2004 JGC V6
Mar 18, 2009 (12:02 pm)
A friend has a 2004 JGC V6 special edition. She says it is shifting late (5000 RPMS) in all gears regardless of demand, load or speed. She also stated it is shifting rough/slow when it does shift. No other problems with the car. I had her check the transmission fluid and it is full. I am going to have her change the fluid and filter but thought I would post to see if anyone had experience with this problem and it's possible cause (TCM, TCC solenoid, etc.). I am unfamiliar with Jeeps but I am a solid shade tree mechanic (mostly Audis, Volvos and Chevys). My only Chrysler was a Eagle Talon AWD (Mitsubishi engine/design). Thanks in advance.
