mr. JEEPTECHNICIAN sir

to go along with that tranny question before, i've got 1 for you.
forward - '93 ZJ 4.0l I6 - NP-231 t'case - AW-4 tranny.

i just got in my GC and took a ride. it's been about 3 hours since i drove it last. i get 1st gear then speed up enough to get 2nd. then when it's time for 3rd it just revvs up like i am in neutral. that is when the stick is in the OD posistion. if i drop it to "3" then it stays in 2nd and never jumps to 3rd, but it never "loses" the next gear either. this comes and goes. from thursday thru today it ran fine - i drive 40 miles round trip to work. i take a short little trip and now it freaks out.
took it to a very good tranny shop in town and they took it for 3 rides and it never happened to them. they said everything was fine.
what do you think???

I had a similar problem and it was the shift cable.

Total repair cost was 150.
