97 Grand Cherokee Limited trans problem
I have a 97 gcl that had tranny problems. I bought a wrecked 98 gcl. Both had 4.0 engines. They appeared identical except color. Before I could pull the tranny myself, I fell and tore my rotator cuff and couldn't do the work myself. I found somebody to switch it out for me for the left over engine and body. I know nothing about the 98 since I bought it from a junk yard. I could only assume it was okay. Problem is, it wont go in 1st gear, I have to manually put it in 2nd then shift it up to 3rd by hand. It also doesn't go into OD. Is there a TCM in this model that controls shifting, or do I have another bum tranny?

Yeah, I didnt have any luck with used transmissions myself, parts place shipped me two bad trannys for my 98 and once i fought them to get my money back, i just had the tranny rebuilt which came with 12 month 12k miles warranty since i plan to keep the jeep. If you plan to keep the car then do NOT buy used transmissions, otherwise your going to be taking a chance.
