shot tranny?

so i noticed about 6 weeks ago i was driving in a city and after reversing and doing a 3 point turn my car wouldnt shift out of first (AUTO TRANS)so i had to pull over, turn off the jeep, then back on.

now i drove in a city again, same stop and go traffic, and it started happening again only this time it took a while and a few off and ons for it to fix itself

i noticed when shifting into R i can hear what sounds like a vacum noise

and when it wont shift out of first like i siad, the gas pedal isnt as sensitive

any help would be apreciated

got a new rebuilt np231 and the stock YJ 3 speed auto

1- Check the tranny fluid. If it was OK what color was it and how did it smell?

My first guess is that this automatic tranny is all original and nomone has checked the fluid in it this century.

The best case scenario is that the fluid and filter need changing. I DID NOT SAY a tranny 'flush' They are useless and dangerous. I am talking a drain and clean (D&C) along with a new filteer. But don't get your hopes up just yet. Even after a D&C a worn tranny is just a worn tranny.....with a new filter and fluid.

Check the linkage especially the throttle valve linkage.

If that tranny fluid has been in that tranny for a while and it is clear and red in color things might not be as bad as I initially thought. when you look at the tranny cfluid as it rolls down the dip stick do you see any 'trails' of black? If not maybe the trannys bands need adjusting. Take it to a reputable tranny service and have them look at it.
