So someone please reply I am lost in this transmission matter and I am a new jeep man...and owner...
Do you know WHICH automatic you have, Chrysler TF999 or GM's TH-400?
If it's the TH-400, I know EXACTLY what it is,
The center support busing is worn out and has let the direct drum drop down on the seals on the center support snout.
Not hateful expensive to fix (if you do it yourself) and not hard to fix if you can do an automatic trans without going into convulsions (most people can't)
If it's the Chrysler TF999, it's more than likely the band is out of adjustment or the servo seals have given up...
