    Drivetrain Tech Center
    Hey everyone- so I bought my first Jeep in February (2014 Limited GC), and since then, I have started to notice a strange sound coming from under it when I accelerate.

  6. '00 WJ Transmission Problem

    Drivetrain Tech Center
    So I went out mudding a while back and at one point, got stuck pretty hard. I rocked my way out, eventually, but in the process I think I damaged my transmission. For some reason, if I am in D, it struggles going from 1st to 2nd gear and shudders rather hard. Yet, if I manually shift it, it...

  12. Transmission Leak

    Jeep Grand Cherokee Lounge-ZJ/WJ
    Does anyone have an idea why a 45RFE in a 99 WJ Laredo 4.7 would intermittently leak ATF when parked facing downhill ? It won't leak parked on level ground or facing uphill. I had the fluid/filters serviced recently, but there are no leaks from the pan and gasket. When it does leak, it leaks out...
  13. Transmission/Transfer Case Lock Up? The engine is snubbed when put into a gear.

    Drivetrain Tech Center
    Just recently picked up a 1997 Grand Cherokee Limited for a great price. The sale was disclosed as having a bad transmission. The previous owner states that it went out all of a sudden. I thought that was strange. It runs great with the 4.0 I6. Idles, revs, fine. The minute you put it into...

  17. Speedometer acting up at idle??

    Jeep Grand Cherokee Lounge-ZJ/WJ
    Ok so everything's been great with my Jeep. Motor's been strong and i'm saving up for the Air Gap Intake and Big Gulp Throttle Body. Although it just started and it doesn't happen everytime, when the Jeep stops the speedometer will jump up from 0 to anywhere from 10 to as high as 70 mph and...
