they are internal are you planning on opening up the transmission for repair?
what do you mean by shift confusion? where is the leak? any codes? any slipping?
does it do it warm or cold? hows the fluid?
how many miles are on the unit? any trouble codes? is the fluid dark or burnt?
po700 is a code saying there are more codes in the tcm..what scan tool are you using? slipping is never electronic that's internal wear... The unit should be rebuilt or replaced...
the n23 recall?
there was a reprogram recall and a recall because they popped out of park... But none for slipping on hills... Slipping on hills is clutch and steel s that are worn internally,, No solenoid will cure that... Not top secret.. That's all internal failure..You could replace the whole valve body and all the solenoids..and it will not cure a slip under load...
the only other recall is the fill tube seal ...basically the grommet at the bottom of the trans fill tube...some allowed leakage or water intrusion...which could give a torq converter shutter if the fluid was water contaminated... Is your fluid water contaminated?
a*****issue..those are the 3 recalls for the 05 on grand Cherokees... none with your symptoms... slipping is internal wear sorry to be the bearer of bad news... is the clatter from the motor or the belt area?
upper or lower end
any signs of sludge or varnish? have you owned since new?
I apoligise I ask important questions to give you a accurate answer,, The noise is likely lifters which is common on all 3.7 Chrysler jeep motors...If its just a few seconds on cold starts its nothing to worry about.. As far as the transmission it will require rebuild or replace,, Your symptoms are internal failure not electrical...There are more transmission codes in the system and a good scan tool will retrieve them,,,They are likely ratio / slip codes which would all back up my answer
inline 6? its a 3.7 which is a v6...
