94 JGC 4.0 trans shutters/slips
im posting this for my dad, who has a '94 JGC 4.0., Auto (42RE/A500)
when accelerating from a stop, the jeep shutters, unless starting off slowly and carefully, then its fine.
when it shifts into 2nd gear, it slips for a second, and then "grabs" and drives fine.
after its in 2nd gear, the tranny works just fine, and shifts normally through all gears.
if i take off slowly from a stop, the tranny also shifts just fine, and seems to engage normally.
we were thinking of just doing a rebuild, but if theres anything else we should try first, let me know.
we are going to do a complete fluid change, including torque converter, and replace the filter, and screen (ill post when this is done)
thanx for any help!
