#866 of 1070 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee Transmission Problems
Oct 17, 2011 (12:35 pm)
I recently just purchased a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo and it ran great all the way home, but just recently its been giving me some problems. It has trouble downshifting on the highway which makes it almost impossible trying to pass people. Also, when starting from a stoped position it takes a very long time to get up to speed exspecialy when trying to climb a hill. The person i bought it from said he recently put a new tranny in it, so I'm very confused on what is causing this power loss.

Can you force the tranny to shift manually?

Is this on a 6 cyc engine? Sounds like linkage is not adjusted right. There is a button on the throttle linkage that is adjusted to sync the throttle position with the transmission...pretty easy to do. If you have a 6 cyc and can get the manual it is no problem to do yourself. I just had my trans replaced and did not have a problem but I remember there is that adjustment.
Also might find out where the transmission work was done and take it to them. If they are a reputable shop they should stand by their work and tweak what is not working.

#870 of 1070 2001 jeep GC. LTD. 4.7, 45rfe tranny problem
Oct 18, 2011 (6:23 pm)
My 01 jeep GC tranny seems to work fine except when stopped or almost stopped. It acts just like a standard tranny would if you didn't engage the clutch when stopping, it started doing this after vehicle had sat for 2 or more weeks. This happens in all gears including reverse and it is intermittent (but getting more common), even after shutting off or stalling motor and re starting. I believe the torque converter is staying locked up. 1. has anyone experienced or heard of this? 2. Is this common? 3. What am I looking at to fix it? Is it a solenoid problem, valve body problem, torque converter problem, or a control box problem? Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you very much, 72marquis

I have a 2001 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo 4wd 4.7L v8 with 107,000 miles when it shifts from 2nd to 3rd at lite or normal throttle it shifts hard but if you are accelerating hard it shifts fine the transmission is a 45RFE the hard shifting is after i have drove it for 20 miles or so the temp is around 190 top 200 2nd question is there a check engine light or is there just check gages & trans over temp lights

#875 of 1070 O/D kicks off on highway

Does anyone have a solution to an Overdrive lock out while on the highway? I have a 2002 grand cherokee with 2wd. It has 140,000 miles on it. operates fine normally but after about 30 minutes on the highway around 70 mph it drops out of O/D into 4th gear. The O/D off light comes on but not the transmission temp light. I do not believe this is because of a high temp. Although it does not do this when the jeep has cooled down. If I shut down for 30 minutes it goes away until the temp comes back.The fluid level is normal and condition of fluid is good. Not sure where to check first. Any help would be appreciated, thanks-Mark
