Thumbs up Just bought a Jeep Laredo - Sout Africa

Hi Everyone

Great website. well organised so compliments to those behind it. I just bought a Grand Cherokee, Laredo, body work and interior still in good nick. Engine revs up's well but no gears. I looked under neath the Jeep and saw the previos owner probably probably pushed it a bit to far as some wires were disconnected near the Gearbox. Reconnected the wires still no gears. Was looking for a workshop manual and did some reading that the solenoids gives sometimes problems, anyone else expierienced a similar problem with a Jeep Laredo V6 4.0.

Welcome to the forum!
You might have better luck getting some help under the "Troubleshooting/ Problems" section of your platforms page. If you aren't sure what platform you have, go to : Jeep Garage - Jeep Forum and the descriptions give the year ranges. For example: Grand Cherokee ZJ is 1993-1998.

Re: Just bought a Jeep Laredo - Sout Africa

Hi Guys

I read about the sensors and took a picture of the sensor where the wires were open and touched one another which I fixed by reconnecting them, not sure how to post the picture as I say insert image I cannot paste it. How do I test if the sensor is damaged and can this be the problem that the Jeep does not want to move forward. If I start the Jeep and put it on 4L it is almost if the Jeep wants to move forward. I later disconnected the back propshaft, appears transfer case is still ok. What else shouls I first check before taking out the tranny. Also rad on the talk converter and the symptoms the guys describes does not sound familiar any advise .
