unbolt the bracket from the valve body and tip it to unhook the cable wire from the throttle trans lever, this is done with the trans pan removed of coarse

It should pop off, straight up. the end ot the lever at trans is a ball. if you can get a pair of needle nose pliers inthere. go inbetween lever and plactic end. gently pry down on handles and cable will pop off.

I am going through the same stuff I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee 6 cylinder it says that my transmission throttle valve is bad but it looks like it could be a couple of things did you have any luck changing it ???can anyone help mefor me when I put my foot on the gas does a fluttering sound and whines out then it goes into gear and from that point on it drives beautiful its just when I take off that it does this if I Drive about 10 to 15 miles it will bypass it and then just drive normal can anyone help


I'm sorry, I'm on and off here, as I'm in the process of moving. Have you tried pulling transmission into low gear and try to take off? If it works, you have an internal transmission problem.
