help me diagnose transmission issue...
2000 WJ Limited, i6 242.
Here's my issue, when I start the jeep cold and start driving, the transmission will have a difficult time shifting into 3rd. 1st, 2nd, and 4th all shift fine and smoothly. If i'm just driving normally, when it goes to shift to 3rd, it will slip. I can get it to reengage if I let off the throttle until i feel it go into gear or if I stay on the throttle at around 3000rpm sometimes it will shift but a little hard.
However, when the transmission has warmed up, everything will work flawlessly and super smooth. From what I've gathered, it doesn't have to do with engine temp. Typically I will let the jeep warm up in neutral then drive off, if I do this it may slip the first time it tries to go into 3rd, but after the first time it will function normally. If I don't let it warm up, it will do it several times before it starts functions normally.,
