Having problems with your 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee ?

Jeep grand cherokee transmission slipping but only when driveing round a corner then fine once going straight again, almost like its popping into neutral and then back to drive again, had the oil and filter changed ATF + 4 and seems to be worse / more frequent now.

Unfortunately what's probably happening is that one or more of the internal shaft seals has worn a groove in the shaft. When you go around a corner, the side forces will permit the shaft to loose contact with the seal resulting in a temporary pressure drop that makes the trans inoperative for a moment.
The seals are usually nylon and won't respond to any additives so you really need the unit rebuilt.

Slipping is often caused by driving with too little transmission fluid. When the transmission fluid gets too low the pressure in the hydraulic system gets low too and the transmission slips. Best thing you can do is not have it slip and to do that keep the fluid at the right level and change it (and the filter) every 30,000 miles. If fluid level is ok then its gonna be the transmission itself is having the problem. Time to rebuild.

1994 Toyota corolla while driving transmission disengages like it goes in neutral, (not in any specific gear). And while that?s going on sometimes the OD light blinks and others the speedometer needle falls down and jerks. I usually let off the throttle, it rolls for a little bit and then grips back up and drives, shifts with no problem. Only does this every few days and sometimes few times a day. I have already changed the oil and cleaned the filter (it is the mesh kind can?t replace) and still


Several things can cause this disengage (slip in neutral) problem. You already changed oil & cleaned screen, but a low oil level will cause this. A weak throttle sensor(s) will cause this usually in shifting between 2nd & 3rd or 3rd & 4th ... 1994 Toyota Corolla

I drove to work one morning and noticed it left a large oil spot... were talkin about 1quart within 5 miles of driving its leaking right around the filter i replaced the filter and still it does it. i also took the tread that the oil filter screws to off and checked it after noticing it was i fine i placed it back and still a huge leak... the car does have 280,000 miles but my parents bought it new and we have never had any other oil leaks??? do you have a possible explanation


You may want to remove the new filter and then check to see if the gasket from the old filter that you removed is still in place in the filter head.This is easy to miss when replacing the filter and the "o"ring or rubber gasket that stuck to the filt ... 1992 Honda Accord

I had recently changed my alternator, voltage regulator, fuel filter, and spark plugs and a few other parts. And every time i'm driving and I come to a stop, or to a turn, my car will shut off and the warnings "Oil pressure" and "Charge system" appear I am able to turn my car back on once I put it back into park and turn the key it will start right back up and drive for another half a mile until I come to slow down again and it turns back off. I was considering changing my battery next because i


That vehicle probably needs a larger battery but I doubt that is the problem. I assume you have the V-8 in that year model but even the V-6 should have 850 cold starting amps. My next step would be to look at the Throttle position indicator which ... 1983 Lincoln Continental

2003 Toyota Corolla oil pressure light flickers then goes to solid after a short period of time. Last time this happened, changed oil and filters and light went away. Now after maybe 1000 miles of driving, symptom is starting up again. Oil level is okay. When I stop the car and turn off the engine, the light goes off and I can drive for a while before it comes back on. Any ideas?


See if you have any oil level or pressure sensors. sometimes these can get gunked up. You may need a new oil pump. I suggest you start using a senthetic oil (valvoline,mobil 1 is reccomended) after u get the problem fixed. ... 2003 Toyota Corolla

The check engine light on my 2004 Toyota Camry came on suddenly one day while pulling into traffic, then car locked up as if it were in neutral, lost all power, and I had to pull to side of road. Turned it off, and it turned right back on. Had the oil changed, the air filter changed, the fuel pump changed. The light went off, but tonight, the car did the same thing and the light came back on. My mechanic wasn't sure what the problem was and had the car for a week.
