grand cherokee laredo 6cyl
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
just looking believe problem is electrical
Ok thanks.
Ask Your Own Jeep Question
Does the check engine light come on when it starts shifting funny?
Ask Your Own Jeep Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
no
Ok, then it is probably not electrical. Most likely a sticking transmission governor pressure solenoid or a sticking spool valve in the transmission valve body.
Ask Your Own Jeep Question
How many miles on this transmission?
Ask Your Own Jeep Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
200,000
Oh boy. That's a fair amount.
Ask Your Own Jeep Question
Knowing that, you may want to have the transmission overhauled especially if you are planning on keeping the Jeep for a few more years. Otherwise have the governor and valve body replaced along with a fluid and filter change.Chris

When was the last time the transmission was serviced?
