96 Shifting Problems

Hey folks,

I've got a 96 4.0l ZJ. When I first start it up in the morning the first couple times I stop I'll have to rev pretty high to get moving and it will jerk forward off the start. After I drive for a bit it won't be an issue anymore and shifts smoothly. My best guess from the digging I've done is a bad TPS.

Thoughts?

How long do you let it run before you put it in gear?

Maybe 10 seconds or so. I just start and go like normal usually.

Mine used to do that, until I did a full fluid flush, and also tossed a new tranny filter in. Now it shifts like butter, it's awesome. If the age of the tranny oil is unknown or looks brown, I would do a full fluid change with a new filter. Dirty tranny oil is what destroys transmissions.
