Transmission Rebuilding

Dear HotRodders,

I have an urgent problem that I hope you can help me with. My girlfriend has a 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Just recently when she was driving, the tranny slipped out of gear and didn't want to stay in gear. It would go a little bit then pop back out of gear. I am curious what exactly the problem might be. I know probably transmission, but how in-depth is the problem. I really want to tackle the problem myself, but I don't know exactly the complexity of it. I think I am going to try and rebuild it. I don't know exactly what all I will need, and I am trying to find any documentation on rebuilding it. I'm trying to find detailed instructions just so I can read them and get a feel for what I might be getting in to. Please help me if you can.

Thank you very much!

From what I can gather from you post, its a manual trans?

If so, could be loose trans mount, mis-adjusted linkage or internal trans problems.

tranny rebuild

The transmission is an automatic. I think for sure something internal. The fluid is extremely dirty and it is apparently full of particles. I'm just curious if it is just a clutch or maybe more, not sure.

Two things you don't ever want to hear on an automatic: really dirty and full of metal. LOL

I'd suggest you enlist the expertise of a good trans shop.

I have never touched a jeep trans specifialy, but I would say its in need of a rebuild. A trusted shop is the best bet. You can do them yourself if you are fairly mechanical and have access to all the necessary tools.

I have done quite a few ford, chevy, and chrysler ones myself. I have never done a jeep or a foreign one though.

Neither are DIY friendly for a newbie
