1996. ZJ Limited V8 clutch problem?

Hi guys,

I live in Zagreb, Croatia, so I dont have a lot of friends who drive Jeep Grand Cherokee, so please help me

Well, the problem is very simple, I dont have experience with automatic transmission, and my Jeep 5.2 V8 does have automatic transmition, but this is the problem:

When I have to start moving (press the pedal in D - drive mood), sometimes (not always), the front of the car shakes very nasty and it seems like it has a problem to shift gear.

It doesent happen very often, and this shows sometimes also when I am driving about 40-50 km/h and press the pedal (power) and RPM goes but not speed , if you understand me .

It is like you have a lazy clutch on manual transmition.

So, please what could be the problem so I can find parts and replace it.

Thank you!

Are you saying like it's slipping in gear? When you push the gas, it revs but the transmission doesn't engage?

It sounds like you have a slipping transmission. You can look into the writeups about transmission band adjustments, which aren't TOO hard, or take it to a transmission shop and have them rebuild it and install a shift kit which is DEFINITELY worth your time/money if you can find someone to do it right.

Yeah it sounds bad like some metal is comming and revs go up but car dont, and it is sometimes when I push the gas pedal to the ground fast. When I drive normal it never shows.

2corndogduff transmission band adjustment? what is that?

This is my first automatic transmission car, so I dont know how it works exactly.

Thanks guys!

Totally cliche, but this should give you a good primer on auto transmissions.
