I think my wife broke the jeep...
I need a little help for some trouble shooting. My wife took the jeep to work one day last week and called me to say that she was on the side of the road and the jeep just stopped. I go up there and find that it will not catch any gears, and notice a pool of trans fluid under the jeep. Inspection shows that a hose had broken between the radiator and transmission and alot of the fluid had leaked out. I put on a new hose and fill up with transmission fluid and off we go. But now there is a BIG slip between first and second, and it even takes 4-5 seconds for the jeep to shift into drive once I shift from neutral. I may take it in and have the transmission serviced to see if that helps, but I am afraid they will tell me I need a rebuild. So what kind of damage could have been done by driving 70mph down the interstate while the tranny was dumping fluid? Anything I can try to look at/fix other than taking it to the shop for a transmission service? Could that have affected any of the sensors for it to have been run dry?

Thanks for any advice, I have never had a transmission issue before and feel kind of lost, and worried that I am going to have to have a rebuild or new transmission put in.
