More than likely either one. What does your owner's manual say?

AnswerUnfortunately, I don't have one of those. My Haynes manual says one way and my Chilton's manual says the other. It gives 2 different readings between the 2, and I would hate to over fill it and cause damage. Answer

I have a 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited and a digital copy of the manual. It says:

Have the engine at operating temp, 15 miles of driving will do.

be on level ground (of course)

pull the emergency brake and press the brake pedal.

Place the shift lever in every position momentarily ending in park

then your routine, wipe, dip, then check on the dipstick.

it also tells you how to read the dipstick but if you can't figure that out you shouldn't be attempting this, Put your helmet back on!

The code p1762 in a Grand Cherokee shows possible transmission problems. Low transmission fluid could be the cause. Make sure that the fluid is full then check again.

check it on the dipstick while the engine is running in either park or neutral.

You might want to check your park-neutral safety switch, if it is not engaged the starter will not run.

Sounds like transmission trouble, check the transmission fluid level.

The transmission may not be building up pressure until the fluid warms up. Check the fluid level to make sure that its full, then check the transmission filter as it could be stopped up.

If your Jeep grand Cherokee Snatches when you are driving, kindly take it to a professional mechanic to check it out for you.

I know the Cherokee does. If the Grand Cherokee does, check the diagrahm on the fuse panel cover. or owners manual.

Check for low fluid level, or a loose filter inside the pan.

If it is an automatic the dipstick is on the left side (passenger) of the engine near the firewall. If it is a manual transmission it has a plug on the driver side of the trans

The car isn't necessarily shifting into neutral its just staying in a lower gear and not shifting to the next gear, check your transmission fluid.

It depends on what type of transmission you have, if you have a 42RE and if you're changing the fluid it's about 5-7 quarts. I just changed mine (2003 Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0 v6 4X2) and it was 6 quarts. The best thing to do, if your changing fluid, is start with 4 quarts and move your way up a pint at a time. Follow the owners manual on how to check (engine running, go through gears and check in neutral). The dip stick on mine is different than the manual but the stick explains the temp vs. the level.

Check the neutral safety switch on the shifter. If you place the shifter into neutral or push the shifter harder into the park position, this may change the switch position to allow it to start. There is a recall on the grand Cherokees for this switch.AnswerCheck the battery, i had the same problem once and it turned out to be one of the cells in my battery had gone bad

That totally depends on engine size. Check the VIN numbers and cross reference the transmission by using one of the available VIN number decoders online.

P1698 no bus message from tcm. The engine computer is unable to "talk" to the transmission computer. You need to check the wires between the two.

It's best to check the fluid level with the engine at operating temperature and the transmission in park, although some vehicles require the transmission to be in neutral, consult your service manual.
