94 Cherokee overdrive / lockup issue


Asked by Apr 08, 2015 at 05:02 PM about the 1994 Jeep Cherokee 4 Dr Country

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

'94 Jeep Cherokee 4.0 liter automatic transmission. Once over 50mph, transmission shifts to overdrive but does not go into "lockup" to lower the rpm. At 55mph tachometer is at 2200. Seems too high. How to fix lockup?

1 Answer


Sounds like the torque converter clutch solenoid inside the transmission isn't working. HTH. -Jim
