  1. 2014 GC exhaust or tranny noise?

    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.

  8. 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...
