Answers :

Inside the transmission are items called overrunning clutches or spragues. What they are is pretty much a bearing that only turns in one direction. I'm pretty sure there is one inside the converter as well. If a sprague goes bad, it will suddenly let go and slip, then re-engage. A good transmission shop can usually recognize this on a test drive and additionally can attach a "flight recorder" to the unit to eliminate the possibility of a diagnostic error.
If the problem is in the converter, and no metal or clutch material is found in the transmission itself, you may be able to just replace the converter. However, if there is debris in the pan, the sprague may not have been the first item to fail but has failed due to contamination of another internal part that has failed. Then, a rebuild is in order.
Of course, I'm assuming that the fluid is full and is not burned, and that you looked at that already. Converter sprague is inside the converter and cannot be replaced . Ones found inside the transmission are on the shaft inside and cannot be changed without taking the unit completely apart. Would make no sense to change it without changing the internal clutches as well.!!

My 96 jeep grand cherokee acts like it wants to stop when i GO OVER 50 MPH on the highway, it feels like my tires want to lock, and when I slow down and stop at a light I feel a strong thump as if some is trying to catch up, the thumps are 5 seconds in between and they seem to get weaker. The jeep continues to run but when I go high speed it feels like it wants to stop again. This only happens when I go on the highway.

I have a 95 Buick LeSabre and it recently started vibrating when I accelerate. I started only happening when i got to about 50 MPH but has steadily gotten worse.

Our 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee, w/82k miles has a hard time moving from a complete stop. Steping on the gas pedal bearly moves the car the RPM's shoot up to 3 and the car begins chugging to gain speed almost like a vibration in the front wheels like the tires are not gripping the pavement. Happens mostly on hot days. The Jeep has new tires and had a turn up about six months ago. Someone said it could be the touqe converter whatever that is. Please help Thanks


Check the transmition fluid level if you know how. The Jeep should be looked at by a mechanic as soon as you can do it. Check for fluid on the undercarriage that may be from a transmition leak. ... 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Acceleration/Throttle problems My car tends to stall when at stops, and even when floored it will not accelerate, after a few seconds of slowly varying the gas pedal it may find a spot it likes, this has happened for a while. I have recently changed the fuel filter and had a disconnected IAT sensor. Currently the check engine light is off. It seems after i get to about 50 mph to settle down a bit, but at times still shakes like its not getting the right gas amount.

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. I've been hearing a constant noise whenever I accelerate. The noise is hard to describe...it's not a grinding noise, but more of a light rubbing/whistling noise. It doesn't happen immediately upon acceleration, but whenever I get to around 10-15 mph the noise starts and continues, unless I'm coasting or slow way down. I mainly hear it on the drivers side. Any suggestions???

Why do all my interior lights including my instrument panel lights and my vehicle information center lights flash rapidly when I start my 98 jeep grand cherokee limited. It happens every 5th or 7th time I start it. It last about 10 to 30 seconds, before it stops.

My 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee makes a whining noise when going more than 20 mph, that does not stop when applying brakes. Definitely coming from driveline in front. Also, when making hard left or right turn going very slow, makes a low growling noise from front end. Any ideas?

We have a '98 Jeep Grand Cherokee with about 75k miles on it (yes, that's accurate - we are the orignal owners). Recently discovered that if we hit a good size bump in the road while accelerating the front end goes into a vibration that shakes the car violently. This vibration will continue until we slow down under 30-ish mph. Just got it back from getting new shocks all around and having all system flushed and joints lubed. Still happens.


This is a shock assembly spring issue.There is a spring that supports the shocks while engaging. It is either broken or weak. So let an expert at the garage look at it for you.Good luck and thanks for using Fixya. ... 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited will idle real low when at slow speeds or stopping and will sometimes go all the way to zero and die. i've had this happen to me while turning and taking my foot of the gas to slow down to speeds of 20 mph. I've tooken it to a mechanic and the diagnostic says nothing is wrong, but the mechanic says it might be the computer, while other people have said an o2 sensor or map sensor.


First will say that you have a good amount of gas in the tank.second o2 sensor does not contol idle or does the map sensor.the tps sensor and if it has a idle air motor.they can control idle other than the computer. ... 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I have an 02 Mitsubishi Montero Limited at about 50 mph it makes a rumbling/vibrating sound that lasts anywhere from 5-10 seconds. The sound and feel of it is exactly like the ridges they put in the road near stop signs that vibrate when you go across them. It does not happen all the time and it happens so randomly that I can't associate it with anything but the 50 mph. My montero is 4 wheel drive but I keep in 2H and according to the manual the back 2 wheels should be illuminated on my panel bu

2005 jeep grand cherokee 4.7 liter v8. when coming to a stop, the engine stalls. Problem is happening more often now. Had the Jeep in driveway today and was revving the engine and when I let off the gas it stalled. It will idle fine without stalling when it is started, only happens when you drive it or rev engine.


Check and clean the idle control solenoid and passages, check the throttle position sensor and perhaps the crank sensor. Don't buy anything without testing or you will be spending money on stuff you don't need.If stumped, get a chiltons or hayn ... Jeep Grand Cherokee

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee - Heater Core? My Jeep has been fogging up inside, and recently started spewing a fine fine mist inside via the vents with the A/C on. I also noticed a leak last week where coolant was pouring out underneath, however when I went to check it out and add stop-leak if needed, it was completely full of coolant. No room to add stop -leak. I checked for failure codes (dual temp control) and got a 56 = Right Temp Door Travel Too Large. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? I took it to the gara

My heater blower stopped working on my 2002 Malibu. For awhile it worked only on a couple of speeds, then stopped working entirely. I replaced the blower resistor and this fixed the problem for about a week, then the blower stopped working again. I replaced the relay and the fuse, with no result. Recently, I noticed that the blower sometimes starts working for awhile when I slam the driver's side door hard, but it eventually stops working again. It works on all speeds when this happens.

I have a 1997 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4.0 I6 with about 155k miles that is having intermittent issues. I just recently had to replace my muffler because of the car backfiring. This problem doesn't happen often but, it happened 3 weeks ago and then again today. The first time it happened the car was sputtering/backfiring and would not accelerate unless the pedal was pushed to the floor. I unhooked thebattery for a minute and it started and ran fine for a while. Now, it seems that quick acceleration,
