My Cherokee has a intermitten problem.My trans. will not kick down at 25-35 miles per hour. I took it in and the throttle sensor was changed.I still have the problem. Any ideas are welcome. Thanks!

At 35 mph you should go into overdrive and the cruise control can be engaged. This is better known as 4th gear lock up.
Under 35 mph you should be in 3rd gear lock up.
When was the last time you serviced the tranny??
Pulled the pan and replaced the filter?
I started to get trans shutter and my fluid looked and smelled good. Come to find out the last trans service was about 2 years ago and over 60,000 miles. Changed the fluid and filter and problem solved.

I changed my fluid about 4 months ago,I do not have cruise control on my 1996 Cherokee. Still around 35 to just revs up,sometimes if I continue to give it gas,it will kick down and allow me go faster. I may drive a whole day with no problems then the next day it will not kick down again.
I appreciate your reply,Thank you
