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 a drive gear it snubbed out immediately and dies. Something feels like it is locked up? I pulled both shafts and tried putting it in gear and it didn't die. Output shaft was spinning. I am wondering can it be the transfer case or is it really the transmission? Also has the quad trac.
