Auto tranny won't shift down, how to fix? - 1998 Jeep Cherokee

Answers :

I'd be willing to bet that it's loaded with varnish. Sounds a lot like the solenoids in the valve body are sticking. Problem is that if this is the case, most times using any kind of solvent will also damage the internal clutches. I'd try changing the fluid and using an additive such as that made by Lucas. You may need to change it more than once before it helps. Otherwise, you may need to at least have the valve body cleaned out and perhaps have the solenoids replaced. If you have a trans shop with a good reputation in your area I'd trust their judgment on what's needed. I can't see yours from here so their diagnosis will be more accurate after testing than anything I can tell you.
