Help PLEASE!! Bought my Jeep in July 2008, its a 2005. Had 29,000 miles, now has 69,400. Check engine light came on, said it was the transmission, had that checked & was told its a cell?! Check engine light went off jeep okay. Started to hear a slight vibration, turned off radio and heat to listen and didn't hear but felt something out of the ordinary,just 10 days ago sounded like drivers front tire was going to come off and thought I had a flat tire, a tie rod, (just guessing)stopped my mechanics, he took it for a ride, heard the noise, put it on the rack and said I honestly don't know. The noise comes and goes and feels like a "thud" while driving. I'm at my whitts end and don't want to be taken advantage of, being a female. This is my second Jeep, love them but this is annoying and scary. I'm afraid to get on the interstate. Any suggestions ppppppplease.

When driving at around 40mph I am experiencing a stutter. Engine doesn't change RPM, goes away if I speed up or slow down. Any ideas?

I'm having the same issue. Did you ever have the stalling problem after getting the shifter bezel replaced?
#816 of 1100 2004 JGC Trans Problem
Mar 03, 2011 (1:50 pm)
I have a 2004 JGC purchased used in 2008. At APPROXIMATELY 100K MILES, THE TRANS WOULD NOT GO INTO REVERSE FORWARD GEARS WERE FINE. TOOK IT TO DEALER AND WAS TOLD TRANS WAS SHOT AND NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. THEY REPLACE TRANS WITH REMAN UNIT (THANK GOD FOR XTENDED WARRANTY COVERAGE ONLY COST ME $100 DEDUCTIBLE). NOW AT 147K MILES TRANS HAS A DELAY SHIFT FROM 1ST TO 2ND GEAR ON LEFT TURNS. TOOK IT TO AAMCO THEY ARE SAYING INTERNAL PROBLEM AND WILL NEED TO BE OVERHAULED. QUESTION IS ... HAS THIS HAPPENED TO ANYONE ELSE AND AM I TO EXPECT TO REPLACE TRANSS EVERY 50K?
#817 of 1100 2007 GRAND CHEROKEE DOWNSHIFTING PROBLEM
Mar 15, 2011 (3:10 pm)
GETTING VERY LOUD "THUMP" WHEN AUTO TRANS DOWNSHIFTS FROM 4TH TO 3RD. NO SUCH PROBLEM WHEN USING MANUAL MODE OR WHEN UP-SHIFTING OR ACCELERATING. PERHAPS GETTING "LOCK-UP" IN "D" AND "5" GEAR? NO DTC'S PRESENT. MECHANIC SAYS UNDER DRIVE CVI-74 (HIGH) REC: REPLACE FRONT PUMP AND INSPECT U.D. PISTON TECH ADVISED DUE TO MILEAGE (100K) IF TRANS IS OUT TO INSSPECT FOR O.H. MECH WANTS $2,000-$3,000. SERVICE HAS ALWAYS BEEN TIMELY. QUESTIONS: IS REBUILD NORMAL FOR 100K? IS THERE SOMETHING LESS EXPENSIVE THAT CAN BE DONE BEFORE REMOVING TRANS? IT'S LIKE GOING IN FOR HEART TRANSPLANT BEFORE TRYING ASPIRIN. HOW ABOUT A FLUID FLUSH FIRST? ANY SUGGESTIONS OR RECOMMENDATIONS?

#819 of 1100 '03 JGC shakes violently when shifted into reverse!
May 05, 2011 (1:08 pm)
My 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee has started to shake violently, and seems to almost stall, when I shift into reverse. It feels as if the gears are possibly slipping? I can keep my foot on the brake, and give it a minute or so, and it does fine, but if I let my foot off of the brake immediately after shifting, it starts acting up. It even does it when I'm not pressing the accelerator. If I try to accelerate, it causes even more of the shaking. If I let off of the brake, it will slowly back up, while shaking and almost stalling, for approximately 15 seconds, and then it's fine. Other than this issue, it runs, and shifts perfectly fine. I don't have this issue throughout the day...mainly just the first time I start the car for the day. I've collected the codes, which are P 1491, P 0122, and P 0455. Would any of these have anything to do with the problem? What are some things I can look at to try and solve the problem myself...I'd really like to try and avoid taking it into a mechanic!

According to my 97 Jeep shop manual it could be a lot of things plus my manual is 6 years older than your jeep but: I suggest you check the gear shift linkage or if it's all electronic find a way to make sure shift lever position is being detected and processed poperly. For example, using a voltmeter I can test the throttle position sensor to make sure it is giving good info to engine computer.
