Transmission Over Temp

Well guys, Ive done some looking around the forums and still hasnt seemed to be much of a solution. If anyone has had the problem fixed, can you tell me what you did, or what your mechanic replaced.

Its happened for about a year now. In the summer it only opens, once it cools down in Canada in the winter it goes away.

In the summer it will usually happen when its hot, the light will come on, and then when I stop at a light you can really hear the fan kick in to gear. Also, it affects the shifting as the shifting points are no quiet sharp. Ill pull over, put back into park, turn jeep off and then on and the light will clear. It will then turn on the next day.

The Jeep dealership has never been helpful so I plan on taking it into a local transmission shop to do the work, but I would like to atleast throw him some ideas on what it could be. I've heard on this forum about replacing the module, the sensors, and yet still no fix...I just wanna keep away from spending 2000 bucks on parts that are perfectly fine.

This is on a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Hemi

Thanks folks

Re: Transmission Over Temp

You could have fluid breakdown causing an overheat. How many miles and have you ever serviced the trans? Start out on the cheap side and try a fluid flush and a trans filter. Any problems shifting when the light is not on?

Fluid is kind of what the mechanic I was talking to thought would be where we should start. Its got 90,000 km on it, I bought it at 40,000 km. As for service, nothing significant, however, I plan on getting it serviced once I take it in, since they'll be working on it.

Also, no problems shifting when light is off.

Re: Transmission Over Temp

Mods will move it. I'd start with a fluid and filter exchange.
