Transmission rebuild...

How hard is it to rebuild a 95 4.0 4x4 auto trans? Took the jeep to cottmans transmission and they tested and found that it is falling out of high gear due to a lack of pressure. Im going to try the filter and fluid change first, but how hard is it to rebuild the trans?

might be a simple governor pressure sensor in the valve body, pretty easy to fix. Worse case it is the pump and that is some effort to remove as it is on the front of the tranny behind the torque converter.

Some of you guys may think this is a little extreme, but i love the jeep and have decided to definately keep it (instead of trading in for a newer one). We are going to get the trans rebuilt for $1300. Im going to start doing a lot of work to it....i like dependability... and at 150K miles, why not.
