Dads got a 98 Jeep Cherokee Sport Automatic


His tranny has been acting up for about 3 months now, clunks when u put it into drive put if u go from P to 3 or 2-1 then it doesnt clunk and its fine. But today he called me and said he put it into "D" and something POPPED and his check engine light came on and the tranny wouldnt engage. But if he would put it into park put it straight down into 3rd and shift back up to "D" drive would work again. But there wasent much power, it wouldnt get any power under load but would still shift.

Anyone have any suggestions what it could be. He priced out a Tranny at jeep thrills a couple weeks back and they told him that the trannys never blow in his jeep and not to bother with it, that it would be something else. But hes ready to just go buy a used one and have me throw it in..

So any advice is greatly appreciate, B, Nutbar?

Thanks guys:dontknow:

turned out it was the trannys brain, i replaced it and its working fine again... tumbleweed.. Was odd that it "popped" when the computer / brain of the tranny went ( forgot its proper terminology )
