Question about 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Transmission **** while accelerating jeep grand cherokee 5.7L

I get a persistent "thud" in the transmission while accelerating - usually in the 30-50 mph range. Transmission mounts fine - not cracked. Could this just be "slack" in the drive train that occasionally "catches" up? This 5.7L hemi engine has about 95,000 miles on it.

Most of these transmissions cannot be adjusted for slippage. Try an Amaco transmission shop, most will diagnose, tell you what the problem is, and give you an estimate for free.

I believe your throttle positioning sensor is actually to blame. These are just the first signs of it going bad. I had the same problem and if you let it go you will end up on the side of the interstate because it will keep sputtering and dying. Then you will have to have a parts store come deliver a $60 dollar part to you on the side of I-95. It is only two screws and an easy fix. I am about 90 persent sure that is what your problem is.

SOURCE: jeep grand cherokee transmission clunk

well then it sounds to me as if you need a transmission replacement...a flush or service at this point won't do you any good, as the transmission is using the contamination in the fluid to build pressure. so if you flush it all away, then the new fluid is way too thin to build any pressure...just replace your transmission....

SOURCE: replaced transmission seal then

Computer controlled transmissions can get confused at times, from my personal experience. If the problem doesn't happen again, I would ignore it. If it happens all the time, it's most likely the transmission computer. Other things could be the shift linkage, engine vacuum leak, speed sensor, etc... Hope this helps.

2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Shifting


Did you ever get that problem diagnosed? My 2008 Jeep GC recently and frequently gets stuck and does not accelerate past 1st gear. We have to pull over put it into park then shift into D-rive again. Then the transmission accelerates prperly. The only way we knew this was the big trucks on my job site have to do the same thing. A temporary resolve. Hoping it's not the transmission slipping and needing repair.

How can you tell what trans is in 01 grand cherokee laurado 4.0


Here is an article I found talking about the Transmission. The second generation Grand Cherokee: 1999-2004 Jeep WJ The first Grand Cherokee was redesigned in 1999, for lower production cost and greater performance and reliability; it was Chrysler's first use of an electronic bus to replace individual wires throughout the body.

Jeep five-speed automatic transmission

An all-new, electronically-controlled transmission with five forward ratios including an alternate second gear ratio for improved performance for passing and better fuel economy is available with the V-8 only, and was designed specifically for Jeeps.

The transmission features unique characteristics such as a tall, 3.00:1 first gear that gives the driver better initial acceleration. Real-time driver adaptive shifting fine-tunes the shift pattern to the driver, while an alternate second gear ratio gives the driver five forward ratios. During acceleration, second gear has a ratio of 1.67. Depending on speed and throttle position, both this gear and an alternate 1.50 second gear ratio are available for kick-down operation, making the down-shift smoother. Its reverse gear ratio is equal to the first gear ratio, to allow for heavier loads.

Other features include three planetary gear sets that combine the widest range of gear ratios available in any transmission in its class. Combined with precise step selections, this brings smooth shifts and maximum power and optimal fuel economy.

The transmission is built at the Indiana Transmission Plant in Kokomo, Indiana, in an all-new 1.2-million square-foot (110,000 m2) facility.
