Auto transmissions Noises

I was getting the most horrible noise when I put the Jeep in reverse, sounded like grinding gears. So I checked the fluid levels and it was really low filled it up to the correct level and the nasty noise has gone away. So now when I'm in Park and I shift to say Reverse I hear this noise like fluid moving a through the valves its really loud. Ive been doing a lot of wheeling the last 2 weeks a lot of water

Should I just drain the transmission and refill.Or should I do a Full transmission flush or should I try to drain all the fluids out and refill it?

Flush! ASAP! Do not drive it or it will cost you! If you have water in your tranny it will destroy it. Good luck!

Sounds like it might be well worth dropping the trans pan and seeing if you have fileings or discolored contaminated fluid.

I don't think I'd take a chance if the water it has been was very deep. I'd drop the pan and see what the ATF looks like. If it looks like a strawberry milkshake, it may be too late since water disolves the glue that holds the clutch disks in place. At that point, the best thing you can try is to have a complete ATF flush & replace.

If the ATF doesn't look like a strawberry milkshake, make sure the ATF level is correct and the fluid isn't burned. The correct way to check the ATF level is to get the engine up to normal operating temperature, shift though all the gears, then leave it in Neutral with the engine running and the parking brake set while you check the ATF level.

When you have a choice, buy American.

Thanks for the reply's guys, ya that noise sounds like a solenoid going bad.
I haven't driven the jeep nor plan on driving it. Only fluid I have seen is
the fluid on the dip stick, it looked normal, but im still gonna drop and change
the filter. I think i remembered something about not using aftermarket filters
i should just use Mopar correct?

How many miles are on it? Have you done any transmission services??? At almost 60K miles exactly on mine the Solenoid Valve Pack went out and it made some god-awful noises.
