Trans OD issues

Hi All
96 cherokee 4.0 200k but 40k on rebuilt trans. No tow or plow. Accelerating onto tollway, won't accelerate beyond 55mph, then with more throttle RPM jumps 1200+ to about 3K with no response from trans (speed) - seemingly slipping. Pull over, smell burned trans smell. Fluid full but burnt. 1st-3rd gear fine, but seemingly won't shift into OD, and still smells hot/burnt. Likely bad trans/losing OD or possibly TCM or something else?? What to do?? Work truck without means of replacing it right now, but no work without it. Help! Thanks!

My 96 cherokee does the same thing. If you find a cure let me know thanks. I've had no luck with mine yet.

Have you changed the fluid?

Sounds like something a tear down will fix. When the Trans goes into OD the TCC (TC clutch) engages and gives you OD. If the fluid is dark/burnt smellin and don't go into overdrive then it sounds like the clutch is possibly done and/or there is a problem in the valve body. To be sure get a professional diagnosis.
