Customer Question
accelerate from a stop it...
I,ve got a 2001 jeep grand cherokee 4L Everytime I accelerate from a stop it seems like its starting out in second gear, slow to get up to speed, but when it does, its fine and it will downshift when wanting to pass. The Snap-On scanner detects code "1756
Governor-MID Pressure Malfunction" is the problem some sort of governor valve in the transmission?
