My Grand Cherokee froze up on me. Am I looking at a brake issue or transmission issue?

Asked by Nov 12, 2013 at 02:45 PM about the 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2000 grand cherokee Laredo
(4x4) was working perfectly fine, then
suddenly I went to reverse out of my
driveway, it went about a full tire
rotation back, then jerked to a stop.
Now it won't move. When I switch to
drive/reverse it switches over (kind of
roughly), but will not move in either
direction. Please help point me in the
right direction with finding the
problem.

sounds like one of your differentials hasn't got any lubrication~

okay....put a floorjack under the "pumpkin" and jack the wheels off the ground....put it in neutral...and see which wheel ain't turning~
