Yesterday afternoon my wife was preparing to run errands when she backed over something in our garage. She pulled the Jeep forward, put it in park. She left it running as she got out, and took a couple of steps to the back to find what she ran over. She told me she heard the car rev briefly, then suddenly accelerate towards her. She couldn't jump out of the way and grabbed the door. In a few seconds, she was dragged down the driveway, across the street, across a neighbor's driveway and into his lawn. When she reached ground she dropped and the Jeep continued until it reversed into a tree, smashing the rear.

After parking the Jeep in my garage, I left it running to check for clearance. After ensuring the vehicle was stopped and in park I exited the car. The car started moving very quickly and the door was bent backwards and then proceeded to hit me and travel about an eighth of a mile before crashing.

Power trans failure.
I have a 2000 grand cherokee. With 4. 0l, auto trans. , 4x4 select trac. It shifts hard taking off from a start. Seems like it double shifts while increasing speed, goes from 2nd gear to hiigh gear then back to 2nd gear and then back again all within a few seconds. I took it to a transmission shop where they explained to me about the possibility of an o-ring seal that was to small and to replace it would require the transmission to be removed from the vehicle. Very expensive. I haven't had the repair completed yet. Before I take it in for repair, has anyone else experience this problem and or another fix?.
