Over the past seven decades, the Jeep has grown into one of the world’s notable vehicle brands and continues to be a top choice for consumers around the country. But the Jeep has seen its share of transmission problems that affect their performance as well as use. The Jeep models that seem to be most affected by defective transmissions as well as engines include the:
Auto Repairs Are EXPENSIVE
Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Cherokee, Jeep Compass, Jeep Wrangler and the Jeep Renegade. and. So, if you are the owner or hold a lease to any of these Jeep vehicles and you have experienced transmission issues, then you are not alone. The faulty Jeep transmissions and engines have caused drivers such issues as poor engine performance, various oil leaks, accelerating that is delayed and difficult, rough shifts, poor response time, shuddering and stuttering, overheating, stalling, delayed gear engagement, lack or loss of power and more.
Do Jeep Grand Cherokees Have Transmission Problems?
It appears as if the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee seems to lead the pack when it comes to transmission problems.
Owners of the 2015 Grand Cherokee dealt with various transmission problems. From the hundreds of complaints submitted, over 30% related to the transmission. The complaints include difficulty with shifting, hesitating when the gears shift or overall jerking.
The 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee also saw its share of issues too!
The 2011 Grand Cherokee arrived and came with a huge share of troubles. In fact, according to CarComplaints.com, “he fourth generation Grand Cherokee took the relatively trouble-free run of the 3rd-generation and flipped the script. From 2010 to 2011, complaints about the vehicle not starting increased 10-fold. In fact, the 2011 model year is riddled with engine problems and a defective TIPM might be to blame.
The TIPM (Totally Integrated Power Module) distributes power to all the electrical components in the vehicle, so when it starts acting funny so do numerous other components in the car. Orders for new TIPMs were so abundant that parts became scarce, prompting a class-action lawsuit claiming Chrysler ignored this obvious defect. By 2012 complaints dropped back down by about 80%. Needless to say, if you see a used 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee on a lot just keep walking.”
The three biggest transmission problems included: “transmission not working properly”, “transmission fluid leaking” and “banging into gear.” You can click here to read more.
How Much Does It Cost To Fix A Jeep Transmission?
In cereal the typical cost of transmission replacement ranges from $1800 to $4000. A used or a salvage transmission can range from $800 to $1500. A rebuilt transmission can run you between $1200 to $3000. For a remanufactured you can expect to pay between $1400 and $3500.
Do All 2014 Jeep Cherokees Have Transmission Problems?
According to Consumer Reports, the 2014 Jeep Cherokee was not able to escape the vail of transmission of problems. In a July 2019 report, Consumer Reports stated: “Jeep is recalling 81,165 of its 2014 Cherokee SUVs because a software problem can lead the transmission to unexpectedly shift into Neutral, reducing power. That could lead to an accident, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The issue affects only 2014 Cherokees with a 3.2-liter V6 engine. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, the parent company of Jeep, says it is not aware of any crashes or injuries related to this problem.”
Consumer Reports further added that “…81,165 of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee SUVs built from Feb. 27, 2013, through July 11, 2014” were involved in the recall.
So, how did Jeep address the issue?
“Dealers will update the transmission software at no charge to owners.”
Do Jeep Wranglers Have Transmission Problems?
The short answer is yes. We found various Jeep Wrangler owners who cited issues with their vehicle’s transmission. The issues range from gas spillage to the transmission oil cooler pipes that had to be replaced. Take a read of what some Wrangler owners had to say!
Owner Number One
“I bought a used 2008 4-door Jeep Wrangler just over 2 months ago. In this time, I have noticed every time we fill up with gas, no matter what gas station we use, gas spills everywhere. Also, the battery was completely drained after a month of having the Jeep. We had it towed to the dealership where they ran a diagnostic and said it was the battery. We had to pay the for the test and then we replaced the battery ourselves, a couple days later the Jeep would not start again! I put the Jeep in neutral and it started right up. So now at least once a day I have to put the Jeep in neutral to start it. My main concern is that it is eventually going to drain my battery again and I am going to have to keep replacing batteries. I have done research and both of these are “known” and “common” problems, yet when I contacted Jeep they act like they have never heard of it and tell me I need to take it to a dealership and pay to have them run more diagnostic tests on it! nothing has been done about it.”
Owner Number Two
“The contact owns a 2008 Jeep Wrangler. The contact stated that while driving up an incline, smoke was emitting from the transmission area. He pulled over and shut the vehicle off for 30 minutes. He was able to continue driving but he still smelled smoke. A couple days later, he noticed that the transmission was difficult to maneuver. The vehicle had not been inspected or repaired. The manufacturer was not notified. The current and failure mileages were 35,844.”
Owner Number Three
“I have a 2009 Jeep unlimited Wrangler x 4 door. The Jeep is only 2 years old on 1/20/2011 at 39313 transmission oil cooler pipes had to be replaced. Wondering if there are other Jeeps with this problem. I had to pay out of pocket because the 5-year warranty I bought from Acura dealer would not cover the issue. I bought the car used in September of 2009 from the Acura dealer with 13,000 miles on it. This issue should have been covered. It if I did not fix the problem, I would have to replace the transmission.”
Owner Number Four
Transmission oil is overheating while climbing steep grades at highway speed and also when driving off road and up hills at slow speed. Had to pull over to the shoulder of highway creating hazard. After researching this problem, I have found that many Chrysler Jeep Wrangler JK models have noted this problem. Many have reported that transmission can start fire. Problem can be fixed with external transmission cooler but may void warranty. I have just purchased this vehicle only two months ago and since found all this out. Chrysler has apparently added a “hot oil” light as resolution but this seems ineffective and does not actually correct the problem. Seeking guidance and resolution.”
How long does a Jeep Wrangler transmission last?
The number of years your transmission will last, is based on various factors. Setting aside defects, a moderately cared for Jeep Wrangler can last up to 200,000 miles. While a Jeep Wrangler in great condition with frequent maintenance may be able to last up to 400,000 miles.
But A Jeep Cherokee Still Has Problems That Have Lasted For Over Six Years!
For many owns of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, then you’re no stranger to the transmission problems the vehicle has. With the ZF nine-speed automatic transmission, multiple issues were reported. They range from stalling, rough shifts succumbing neutral at random times and other issues.
Although the FCA has since issued multiple software upgrade, the problems still remain. Jeep addressed the issues and issued a recall in recent years- for about 83,000 2014 model year Jeep Cherokees that are fashioned with the optional 3.2-liter V6 engine. The issue is still the transmission clutch defect that may shift vehicles into neutral mode. Over 17,000 vehicles in markets in the Mexico, Europe and Canada, markets were also part of the recall.

Troubleshooting Jeep Transmission Problems
The same symptoms can also indicate a serious transmission problem such as a faulty valve body, work, clutches, and faulty torque converter.
This guide goes over common problems and step-by-step instructions to help you troubleshoot Jeep transmission problems such as limp mode, no shifting, delayed shifting, and slipping on Jeep Wrangler, Grand Renegade, Compass, Gladiator, Cherokee.
Common problems that often cause Jeep transmission problems:
- Low transmission fluid level - Low transmission fluid level can cause several issues, including erratic shifting, no shifting at all, delayed shiting, strange grinding noises, limp mode, and even check engine light to come on.
- Faulty Torque Converter - Can cause Jeep transmission to slip in all gears, shuddering, and even overheating.
- Worn Bands - Can cause delayed shifting, shifting at high RPM, harsh shifting, no gear at all, no reverse.
- Shifter Module - A faulty shifter module or shifter cable can cause the transmission to get stuck or not go in the selected gear.
- Defective Valve Body - The valve body is very complex and can fail in several ways. Depending on the competent that fails, it can cause limp mode, the transmission may not shift at all, or harsh shifts between gear or specific gear.
- Faulty Vehicle Speed Sensor - If your Jeep has developed a harsh shift or is stuck in emergency mode (limp mode), the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) may be the problem. Sigan from the VSS is sent to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM), and the last signal can cause one or more of the previous systems.
- Brake Light Switch - A faulty brake light switch can prevent the shifter from moving out or back in Park.
- Low Battery Voltage - In rare cases, the low battery voltage can trigger MAKINA automatic transmission to get stuck in limp mode.
- PCM / TCU / ECU Software Issue - Software issues can cause erratic shifting or downshifting issues. MAKINA transmission may shift too late or gears to drop unexpectedly. This is a common problem for your particular transmission; a Jeep dealer may have a software update to fix such shifting problems.
- Wire harness - Damages wire harnesses from ECU / PCM to the transmission housing can cause shifting problems. For example, your MAKINA may not shift at all or go in gear.
Most Common Jeep Transmission Problems
Based on our research and experience with Jeep vehicles, here is a list of the most common problems with Jeep transmission and possible causes.
Delayed or failed gear shifts
Older Jeep vehicles that use a 42RE or 42RLE 4-speed automatic transmission have a widespread issue with delayed or failed gear shifts. There are two different scenarios when this happens. One is when shifting through 1st to 3rd gear, and the other is shifting from 3th to 4th gear. In most cases, there will be no check engine light or other symptoms.
- Worn or stuck governor pressure solenoid, preventing it from maintaining proper fluid pressure. This will affect 1st-3rd gear shifts. A faulty sensor or wiring issue will cause incorrect readings on the solenoid position.
- Worn overdrive solenoid, which serves as a pressure accumulator that engages the overdrive gear. This will affect the 4th (overdrive) gear only. When this solenoid wears out, it cannot hold the transmission fluid pressure needed for proper operation.
- Other possible causes include low transmission fluid level or dirty transmission filter.
Torque converter or overdrive issues
Jeep, with a 42RE or 42RLE 4-speed automatic transmission made after 2000, can have sporadic torque converter clutch or overdrive engagement problems. Usually, this issue will trigger a ‘check engine’ warning light so that a corresponding code will be stored in ECU memory.
- A broken cover plate holds the pressure boost valve in place on the bottom side of the valve body. This is a well-known problem, which is a result of poor design from the factory. As a result, the retaining bracket that holds the lockup pump breaks off. This triggers a P1740 code. Installing a special upgrade kit from Superior Solution is the best solution.
- Faulty input/output speed sensors on the gearbox or faulty throttle position sensor. If any of them are giving the incorrect reading, it can affect torque converter clutch performance. These issues will usually trigger various speed sensor-related codes.
- Faulty governor pressure solenoid or the corresponding sensor, as already described.
Delayed or failed gear engagement
Jeeps that use a 545RFE 5-speed automatic transmission can develop a problem with gear engagement. This affects both drive and reverse gears and shows a noticeable delay with gear engagement when the vehicle is cold. The problem will be more apparent when outside temperatures are shallow. The check engine light may also come on.
- Loose or disconnected transmission cooler filter. This allows the transmission fluid to drain from the torque converter when the vehicle is turned off for some time; it will delay gear engagement until the pressure builds up. Installing a modified filter solves the issue.
- Dirty transmission fluid and filter, low fluid level, or improper transmission fluid
Delayed gear shifts or limp-home mode
Jeep vehicles with a Mercedes sourced 722.6 5-speed automatic transmissions can suffer from issues that range from harsh and delayed gear shifts to gear slippage or even going into limp-home mode. In most cases, these symptoms will be intermittent and trigger a check engine light to store a corresponding error code.
- Faulty conductor plate, which holds the solenoids and connects them to the TCU. When the conductor plate is faulty, it causes communication problems, which results in improper solenoid operation. This is a well-known problem, and there are numerous aftermarket solutions.
- Worn or faulty valve body solenoid. Sometimes, the problem can be due to damage to the internal wiring.
Erratic gear shifts or gear slipping
Front-wheel drive Jeeps with an A6MF1 6-speed automatic transmission can develop issues with incorrect gear changes. Shifts can be erratic, or there can even be a slippage during gear shifts. In most cases, the symptoms will be more noticeable when cold. There might be a check engine light and corresponding codes in DTC memory.
- Leaking or sticking solenoids that engage each gear. This is a gradual process, which starts only when cold and gets worse with time. Replacing the whole solenoid set with new or upgraded ones is the only solution.
- Faulty or damaged solenoid wiring, which obstructs signals from the TCU. Checking and repairing or replacing the wiring will solve the issue.
Intermittent shifts to neutral
Front-wheel drive Jeeps with a ZF9HP48 9-speed automatic transmission can unexpectedly shift to neutral while driving. This issue is intermittent in most cases, and there will be no apparent correlation to driving conditions or overheating. This problem will trigger a check engine light, and a corresponding DTC code will be stored in the Engine Control Unit (ECU).
- Faulty transaxle range sensor connector and wiring, which causes incorrect signals from the sensor. When the TCU detects an implausible signal, it shifts the transmission to neutral and sets the P0901 code. As this is a well-known problem and a serious safety issue, a Service Bulletin covers it. Check if your vehicle is affected.
Troubleshooting Jeep Transmission Problems
Follow the steps to troubleshoot and isolate Jeep transmission problems. It is critical to determine which transmission is installed on your Jeep to research the issues that affect that particular transmission. You can verify the transfer by Decoding your VIN or calling the dealer.
To help you get started, here is a list of Jeep transmissions:
- 3-Spd Automatic A999: 1986-1991
- 3-Spd Automatic 30RH (A904): 1994-1995
- 3-Spd Automatic 30RH (A904): 1994-1995, 1997-2006
- 4-Spd Automatic 42RLE: 2003-2006, 2007-2011
- 5-Spd Automatic W5A580: 2012-2017
- This is manufactured by Mercedes-Benz and is known as the 722.6 transmissions. It is a reliable transmission but known to have a few minor issues. For more help, see our article on Mercedes-Benz 722.6 transmission problems.
The next step is to check the transmission fluid level. Low transmission fluid level is one of the most common issues that cause shifting issues on Jeep Wrangler, Gand Cherokee, Renegade, Compass, Gladiator, and Cherokee.
How to Check Jeep Transmission Fluid Level
This procedure should only be performed to check the transmission fluid that may be slightly low. If the transmission fluid is extremely low, you need to add fluid then check the level. Checking the transmission fluid level on a transmission that has no fluid can damage the transmission.
- Park the vehicle on level ground when possible.
- Set the parking brakes and shifter in Park.
- Pull the hood release and open the hood.
- Locate the transmission dipstick.
- Remove the dipstick and clean it with a clean cloth.
- Reinsert the dipstick in the transmission. Ensure the transmission is fully inserted, then remove it.
- Look carefully at the dipstick to determine the current transmission fluid level. The level should be between MIN and MAX marks for the COLD (lower) markings.
- If the level is low, add transmission fluid level.
- Drive vehicle for fifteen minutes making sure to select all the gears manually.
- Repeat the procedure once the transmission warm-up, but this time, the level must be between the MIN and MAX marks for the HOD (higher) markings.
Not all Jeep vehicles have a transmission dipstick. If the dipstick is not present, the vehicle will need to be raised on a lift, and the level can be checked via the fill hole.
Reset Automatic Transmission Adaptation
Adaptive automatic transmission monitors your driving behavior and adjusts the gear shits to deliver the driver's best engine response and shift points.
If you have a newer Jeep, there is a high chance it monitors your driving behavior. Resetting the transmission adaptation to the factory setting can make your Jeep shift normal again. This simple procedure can improve shifting and does not cause adverse effects.
This procedure will work on W5A580 transmission but may work on other models as well. It does not cause any problems and doesn't hurt to try.
Here is how to reset Jeep transmission without any tools:
- Press the gas pedal down and keep it pressed.
- Turn ignition on without starting the engine.
- Keep ignition on (engine off) and the gas pedal pressed for thirty seconds.
- Turn the ignition off.
- Release the gas pedal.
Start the engine, and don't drive too aggressively for the next twenty miles. If the procedure above does not improve the shift quality, you can perform a transmission adaption reset with a professional scanner.
Read Transmission Fault Codes
If the transmission fluid level is correct, the next step is to read fault codes from the transmission control module or what is known as the TCU. To retrieve transmission codes, you will need a Jeep OBD-II Scanner. Basic code readers are not recommended because they can only read codes from the Engine Control Unit and not Transmission Control Unit.
- Park the vehicle and turn off the ignition—set parking brakes.
- Locate diagnostic port under the dashboard, driver's side.
- Plugin your OBD-II scanner, then turn on the ignition without starting the engine.
- The scanner will turn on. Allow it to communicate with the vehicle. Select MAKINA; then, your particular model.
- Select Control Units, then Transmission.
- Select Read Fault Codes from the main menu.
Check For Recalls
Lastly, always check if any open recalls or Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) exist for your Jeep.
Recalls are performed free of charge by any Jeep dealer. To check if a recall exists on your vehicle, visit our Check Recalls page.
Ask if Technical Service Bulletins (TSB) exist for your car as well. TSBs for the transmission typically update the Engine or Transmsimon control unit software. TSBs can program the shift solenoids, which makes the transmission shift better.
The Jeep Wrangler was equipped with the 42RLE, 545RFE or the W5A580 (NAG1) transmission. But they aren’t without their problems though, so let’s look at some of the most common Jeep Wrangler transmission problems, look at cost estimates and figure out what you can do about them.

Jeep Wrangler Transmission Recalls
Recall 05V460000 / E14 – Transmission may not hold in the park position
2005 – 2006 Chrysler 300 – 2005 – 2006 Dodge Charger – 2006 Dodge Dakota – 2005 Dodge Durango – 2005 – 2006 Dodge Magnum – 2005 – 2006 Jeep Liberty – 2005 – 2006 Jeep Wrangler
Summary – In November 2005, Chrysler recalled 256,409 vehicles equipped with the 42RLE transmission, because the cup plug that holds the park prawl anchor shaft may not have been properly installed. If the shaft moves out of position, the vehicle may not be able to achieve the Park position.
Consequence – If this occurs and the parking brake is not applied, the vehicle could unexpectedly roll away, causing serious injury and damage.
Remedy – Dealers were instructed to install a bracket to ensure that the 42RLE parking prawl anchor shaft will stay in the proper position. Concerned owners may call Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403 or NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236.
Jeep Wrangler Technical Service Bulletins (TSB)
Common Jeep Wrangler Transmission Problems
Shifting problems and solenoid/pressure switch DTCs – 42RLE transmission
Problem – Drivers may experience 42RLE transmission problems that include slipping and harsh shifts. The check engine light may also be illuminated with the following codes stored in the ECU: P0750, P0755, P0760, P0765, P0846, P0871, P0841.
Solution – The problem may be caused by corrosion in the 10 pin solenoid harness connector. This may also be caused by a wiring issue between the TCM/ECU and the transmission harness connector. A new design 42RLE 10-pin connector will need to be installed and/or wiring issues repaired.
Delayed and/or harsh 3-4 or 4-5 shifts – 545RFE Transmission
Problem – Owners may experience an unusually delayed or harsh 3-4 or 4-5 gear change, where the transmission doesn’t seem to want to go into that particular gear.
Solution – This issue is related to valve body problems where the material used to make one of the checkballs has broken down to the point that fluid is able to get past and engage the underdrive clutch during those shifts. An upgraded #2 checkball will be needed to solve the issue.
Lack of Response
Grinding or Shaking

Can I drive with a transmission problem?
If your Jeep Wrangler can still make it up and down the road, you might say “It’s fine, I’ll just drive it until I can get it fixed”. But that is not always a good idea, depending on the symptoms. You see, there are a lot of (very expensive) moving parts inside of a transmission, and if something isn’t right, continuing to drive with a transmission problem could damage something else.
How often does a Jeep Wrangler transmission need to be replaced?
The overall lifespan of a Jeep Wrangler transmission largely depends on how well it was maintained. Factory design flaws also factor into this equation, along with how/how hard you drive. But on average, we’ve seen the Jeep Wrangler transmission last for between 130,000-180,000 miles. A high quality replacement transmission however, can last considerably longer if all of the factory design flaws have been addressed and the vehicle has been maintained.
How are Jeep Wrangler transmission issues diagnosed?
It is fairly easy to guesstimate what the root cause of your Jeep Wrangler transmission problems might be, but you won’t truly know unless you have the right tools and experience. A good mechanic or transmission repair center will be able to connect your truck to a computer and find out which diagnostic trouble codes (DTC’s) have been stored. Once they know what to look for, they can perform a visual inspection to verify the problem.
How is a Jeep Wrangler transmission replaced?
In order to replace your Jeep Wrangler transmission, the truck has to be lifted from the ground in order to gain access to all of the parts that will need to be unbolted. Then the transmission can be lowered to the ground (typically with a transmission jack), so the new transmission can be installed.

How to Solve Jeep Wrangler Transmission Problems
Solution A: Buy a Used Jeep Wrangler Transmission
The quickest way to fix your transmission problems is to simply buy a used transmission or used transmission. These can be found at most junk yards, and they often come with a 30-90 day warranty. However, there’s no way to determine the actual condition of the internal components, so you could be spending a bunch of money to have the exact same problems. Plus, that warranty only covers the transmission if it’s defective, not the labor costs that you’ll have to pay.
Solution B: Buy a Rebuilt Jeep Wrangler Transmission
Another option would be a rebuilt transmission or rebuilt transmission. A local repair shop will remove your transmission, then install a bunch of new parts during the rebuild. The problem here is, the skills and experience of each transmission rebuilder will vary widely from shop to shop, so you could have problems from something that wasn’t adjusted properly. And the 1-2 year warranty might only cover you at certain transmission repair shops, in a specific geographical area.
Solution C: Buy a Remanufactured Jeep Wrangler Transmission
Many owners depend on their vehicle to commute and get things done. Their gasoline engines are designed to go 100’s of thousands of miles, so it makes sense to invest in a remanufactured transmission.
