Jeep Problem Stuck in 3rd gear!

My jeep grand cherokee limited 2005 gear is stuck on 3rd. Everytime i change the gear from plus to minus it never changes except from 3rd. Also the acceleration is week and when i went on full stop, when i let go the brakes it doesnt move, i have to press the gas for it to move.

I went to a local mechanic and said that the automatic gear box is damaged or it just need to be cleaned. If its damaged it would be expensive to replace it.

I dont actually know what to do. can you guys give me anyideas please. thanks

Re: Jeep Problem Stuck in 3rd gear!

Are there any lights on the dash
Yellow squiglies (ESP off/dis-engaged)
Red lightning bolt (Throttle body issue)

If yes it is in limp mode...turn engine off and restart.

If no are there any engine codes?

Re: Jeep Problem Stuck in 3rd gear!

This is what happened when our tranny went out after having the GC for only a week (brand new!!) - was due to a faulty fluid pump. Chrysler put in a brand new crate tranny to replace it.

Doesn't sound good for you...
