Dragging Transmission

Car Information:
Jeep
Year:
Engine Size: V6
Trans: Automatic

Issue/Question:
When the vehicle reaches 45 or 50 mph it ‘drags’ like a transmission that wants to shift gears, but with transmission trouble can’t. Someone said it was the transmission filter but the maintenance book doesn’t cover the topic at all. Can you help me? Greenway Jeep/Chrys. says it is ‘normal’ but a reputable jeep owner who generously took a ride with me said ‘don’t let them tell you it’s normal because it’s not. Can you help?

Answer:
Common problem, we replace a lot of governor pressure sensors on these transmissions for this problem! Bet your going through a lot of gas! If my suspicion is correct this can be replaced without removing the transmission, we can do the repair by removing the pan, If we replace the sensor, and the torque convert switch, service the transmission you should be looking at a little less then $500.00

Let us know if we can help 407-629-2661

Overheating

Car Information:
Grand Cherokee
Year: 1996
Engine Size: 4.0L
Trans: Automatic

Issue / Question:
Over heating, replaced water pump, thermostat (195 deg) and coolant yesterday. Radiator was replaced 4 yrs. ago. Mileage is 180K, temp gauge reads 230+-. However, if you turn the heater on it reads 210. No visible leaks in the system. Please advise, temperature is higher when driving.

Answer:
Is the temperature the same at an idle sitting still, and driving at highway speeds? I would be tempted to try another radiator, it should run cooler going down the road.
