Commander won't engage when in gear
New to the forum - Owner of an 06 Jeep Commander 5.7 Ltd.
Up until recently, no complaints with the vehicle.
Yesterday, I started the Jeep everything seemed fine. I put it in gear, and maybe moved a foot or two and it seemed very laggy and then just sat idle as I had my foot on the gas. It was sitting for a good 36 hours in the cold (Manitoba, Canada) and I figured it was maybe due to the weather.
Tried restarting it and going into reverse and drive but it still wouldn't engage.
I have an engine light on so I went and purchased a reader for the error code.
It showed codes: P0867 and P0841.
Speaking to the local dealer in town they recommended having it towed in for a fluid and filter change.
I apologize for the length of this post, I've researched the error codes and both refer to transmission issues. I'm hoping - Maybe not the right term, but has anyone had any similar issues and could fill me in on what to expect. I'm really, reallllly hoping I'm not going to have to replace the transmission, that's for sure.
-I should add I checked the tranny fluid level and it seemed clean and actually a bit high. I may try again tomorrow and let the vehicle run a little longer for a more accurate reading.
Any help would be much appreciated.
