96 grand cherokee 4x4, when i put my jeep in reverse it seems the transmission is trying to cut the jeep off, and the engine is trying to restore idle pressure, and when i put it back in park the engine revs up. this doesnt happen on the initial reverse but it seems it happens after i've made a drive somewhere and get right back into the it and try to reverse, the two start battling each other which causes the jeep to shake. this does not happen in drive. any suggestions.


Quite possible that you have a bad shift solenoid or shift controller that may actually be placing the transmission in both reverse and drive. Most good trans shops have a "flight recorder" that they can plug into the system and test drive it. That w ... 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

My 98 dodge caravan would cut off while I was driving. The problem seemed to be the grounding wire that is connected to my positive battery pole. After the wire was regrounded the van will crank up but will stall out when put in gear and trying to drive off. I changed the fuel pump, fuel filter, map sensor and throttle position sensor. My van still stalls out and cuts off when I try to accelerate. What can the problem be?

Put it in reverse and it stalled when I was reversing. I kept trying to start it up to get a few blocks home to my house. But each t
