raving in reverse or drive

When I start my jeep I'll put it in reverse or drive and it will act like it's in neutral for about 5 seconds and than start moving. It doesn't always do this its just kind of random I have an 05 4.7l. Could this be the transfer case acting up from the neutral shifting thing they sent the recall out for?

Transmission losing prime. Very common and only annoying, won't cause any problems so long as you wait for it to engage before setting off.

Try letting it run in neutral for a few seconds before shifting into gear, mostly when it's been sitting for a while. Not a bad idea to let it warm up and circulate briefly anyway. My rule is, start it first, then put your seatbelt on and get situated before leaving.

A change of the filters in the transmission will fix this problem so long as good filters are used and installed properly. WIX or OEM filters.

I had this issue. I changed the transmission oil and it never occurred again. Also, letting it warm up will do the trick as well.

They are both internal. The spin on filter is for the cooler return line which runs on a separate fluid circuit from the primary trans functions.
