A couple of weeks ago, I accidentally shifted into reverse while moving forward at about 40 mph. Now it doesn't want to back up when I shift it into reverse. Is it the transmission?
It's a 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee. When I realized that I'd accidentally shifted it into reverse (big grinding sound), I shifted it into neutral, then back into drive. I was trying to shift it into 2 wheel drive from 4 wheel drive, but shifted gears instead...
I would have to advise you to have it checked out by a certified trans tech. Sounds like you may have some internal damage to trans.
Prob a sprag clutch. Cheap part, expensive labor. Internal as Dandy stated.
I concurr :P Just make sure next time, u slow down to close to 5 mph, like it says to do, before u try to do any shifting
Thanks for your help.
