Transmission slipping

Think I am going to need transmission rebuilt. Trying to decide which shop to go to in Flint Michigan. My automatic tranny is slipping out of gear now and then. I have 123000 miles on my Tj. One guy said that jeeps have a low pressure issue that is common?

i would go to at least 3 independent tranny shops for a estimate. might google them to see if any complaints. stay away from the amco type chain shops. IMO!

I contacted 3 transmission shops and decided to go to Phill's Transmission in Clio Michigan. My father in-law says he has taken lots of his cars and trucks there and the guy does good work. The guy said 1800-2000 dollars.

Dude do your self a favor and save the remove and install labor. It is your Jeep but with a tranny jack for <$80 from Harbour freight and simple tools you can have a freind stop by and remove it yourself and drag it in for a cheaper rebuild. It isn't that difficult. plus you will learn more about your Jeep. Your choice but about 1K in labor and other upcharges means that nmuch less cash foor other Jeep projects/beer and wheelin fun.

$2k to rebuild that tranny is insane. you could swap in an AW4 for less and gain overdrive in the process. That tranny can b rebuild at home for 300 and it's one of the easiest trannys to build. Even if you pay a shop to do it, $2k is crazy high.

If it has tracks, tires or tits, its gonna cause a problem.

Interesting feedback. Thanks for good advice. I'm not exactly sure what to do. I am an amateur at auto maintenance. But will definitely give this some thought.

Thanks for solid advice guys. Like I said I am not much of mechanic but am trying to learn. The guy at the transmission shop says he cant find anything wrong with it and no error codes are showing up. He says that the only code coming up is a O2 sensor. I am thinking that this may have been my problem. My RPMs were shooting up while driving straight and I was loosing power it didnt seem to happen during gear shifts. I thought it was definitely the transmission slipping givin the amount of miles on it 123,000. That shows what I know. I am going to keep driving it and go from there.

So I just got back from tranny shop and guess what check engine light is on. 0884 code. There are several threads that have information on this I will link them. One post even discussed using foil to help ground a sketchy wire harness.
