Hello I have a 2001 jeep grand cherokee limited. Awd. Yesterday I had it in the shop to get a power steering hose replaced and decided to have a transmission service as preventative maitenence bc my jeep has 148k. I have had no previous signs of transmission trouble, no hard shifting, or anything. Today after picking up my car and driving less than 40 miles, my transmission starting acting crazy. Hard downshifting and revving to 4000 rpms while slowing to turn. Then I pulled over and stopped. Put the car in park then back to drive. It revved to 4500 rpms then kicked in gear. I drove another 5 miles or so and as I was going up a small hill at low speed probably 5miles per hour the jeep revved like it was in neutral but it was in drive. I was in the middle of the road and could go forward. It rolled all the way back down the hill backwards while I was still in drive. What could have happened? Could something have been done wrong during the service or am I just that unlucky. Is the transmission shot completely?
any help would be greatly apprecitated!
