'97 TJ with slipping transmission

Hey everyone, I actually own a 78 CJ but I have a friend with a '97 TJ with a 4 cylinder engine and automatic tranny. It doesnt sound the greatest and she said when going from 2nd to 3rd it takes awhile to get into 3rd, which i assume she meant it is slipping. Is this common with these jeeps? and what kind of transmission work can she expect?

How many miles does it have? I'd check the fluid level first.

Thanks for the response. It has 97,000, going to try the cheapest fix first and check the transmission fluid levels. Thanks so much for the response, I will update as soon as I can!

Sounds like the filter and ALL of the ATF needs to be changed out, and not what is just in the pan like most folks do.

Have the fluid changed (all of it) and change the filter. While the filter is being changed, have the two clutch band adjustments done as called out in the OEM FSM...
