I have an automatic transmission. Same problem but not covered????. Posted on Apr 19, 2009 will or will not crank? The transmission went out on me and the pickup only had 61000 miles on it. I have a 2002 Jeep Liberty, 3. I stuck it back in. Also I've heard of people installing aftermarket one way valves in the fluid cooler lines to help remedy this problem in these trucks as well with some success.

Five weeks ago, I had a bad skid on ice and hit a steel grate built into the sidewalk. Now, if thats not the problem. Any of these small problems can cause the transmission to suck in air sporadically, at which point it loses oil pressure and feels like it is in neutral. The vehicle was taken to a local mechanic who informed the contact that the reverse gear retention clip came out and disintegrated. This caused approx 9000 dollars in damage to the tires, wheels and suspension systems. I did drop the pan and found nothing abnormal.

I turned my car of as i coasted to a parking lot and my car continued to make this super loud noise. If your transmission is slipping, start with the basics. Any suggestions will be much approeciated. If you think your clutch is starting to slip, you can try a stall test.

I've checked the levels while the engine was running, and it's about 1cm above the full line. Been to dealership five times. I turn the car off and restart it and then it will again work for about 30 seconds? The first repairman said at first my rear diffrential is broken thats why im having a hard time going in reverse. Hard shifted a few times but generally revs between the shift. Now out of warranty the car fires up and goes into any gear without hesitation for about 30 seconds then makes a noise and all of the gears go out. The quickest way to test a solenoid is using a hand held ohm meter. If you can catch the problem before it ruins the transmission, install an aftermarket transmission cooler to help keep temperatures under control.
