I have a 1989 Jeep Cherokee Ltd. It has 170k miles, Auto Trans, 4x4. The only problem I have had with it was the typical overheating issue which I have been bandaiding and it's worked fine. However, the past couple of days it's started to act strange. There are times when it will not go from one gear to another which causes the RPM's to soar. If I shut it off and turn it back on it will work for a while and then do the same thing. I'm not sure if this is the transmission, choke problem, or something else. Does anybody have an idea what it might be?

I had a similar problem with a 91 XJ a couple of years ago. I would have to juice the throttle to get it out of first and it always felt like she thought I had the pedal down. Turns out she did. Take her to a shop and have them check the throttle position sensor to see if it is reading correctly. Mine malfunctioned so that she thought i had the pedal to the metal 24/7. Total fix was around $40.

Peace.
