Jumpy Transmission?!?

When i accelerate kind of hard, like maybe to pull out in front of someone, for example, my transmission or ignition or rearend skips like i am spinning a tire with a limited slip activated, so it jumps around like a fiend. Going up a hill it does it no matter what. WHAT SHOULD I DO?? do any of you have any ideas what it could be? thanks for all the help i can get!

I'm assuming you don't have any warranty from the dealer you just bought that Jeep from? According to a post from you in a previous thread it sounds like you just bought this vehicle, is that right?

I've only had my ZJ for about 6 months. I bought it from a private seller. Right after I bought it I changed all of the regular stuff. The axle fluid, Tcase fluid, oil, transmission fluid, fuel filter, transmission filter, etc. I didn't do the brake fluid because it looked pretty clean, and it's a pain to change.

I also changed the cap, rotor, wires, and plugs. It would be worth your while to do all of this regular stuff as preventative maintainence, and see if it doesn't fix the problem you having currently as well. Without more details it tough to say what the problem your having is.

If you did just buy this vehivle, then you should check with the dealer to see if there is a short warranty on the cars they sell. Also check with your state attorney general's office to see if your state has any laws protecting you as a car-buying consumer. There may be mandatory warranty on a car sales or something like that.

This sounds like my transmission in my 96 ZJ. If the transmission fluid was changed, and Chrysler ATF +3 was not used, it will act just like you said, seems as though maybe a tire is spinning or the differential is at fault, but this is because ATF +3 was not used. Changing the fluid will help... If the fluid has not been changed recently, a transmission failure is sure to blame.
