99 wrangler auto transmission shifting problems

I have a 99 TJ with the 2.5L and auto trans. I just completed changing the transmission fluid and filter. During my test drive, the transmission would not shift from2nd to 3rd unless I let off the gas. It seems the have and issue with shifting up or down after 2 nd gear. Fluids were checked multiple times and the levels are fine. Any ideas?

    I found out that the transmission was overheating, because there was a blockage in the lower radiator. I installed a new radiator and the problem was solved. Thanks to everyone for their help.

SOURCE: Inconsistant transmission problems on 2003 jeep gcl

Many times this is caused by either a sticking electronic shift solenoid in the transmission or the trans fluid and filter need to be replaced, has the trans been serviced, it should have been done at 60,000 miles.

SOURCE: transmission not shifting correctly

It sounds like you have a shift linkage problem. Did this start after going off road? If so, check for damage. You MIGHT be able to do some repairs yourself but would be better off going to a transmission shop. If the problem didn't start after off-roading or other damage, there are several possible issues that could be causing the problem: 1) A broken band; 2) a bad vacuum modulator; 3) leaking vacuum lines; 4) blockage or broken springs in the valve body. In any case, you are better off going to a reputable transmission shop.

SOURCE: Transmission is shifting hard and at higher rpm's

you will need to have a transmission shop check this for you but it sounds like the turbine sensor or the output sensor isn't in sync .these are easy repairs but you might as well have them change the filter and fluid then

Whats the best trans mission fluid to use on a 02 jeep wrangler 32rh


first off it only gets out 1/3 of the fluid by hand.
you know that fact right? putting fresh atf over mostly old is a wasted effort. right, unless done 3 time in row>?

.i guess you lost the operators guided, or cant google search this?

a full flush and filter works best. any ASE shop can do it.

I have a strong reverse in my 1998 blazer's auto transmission but no foward gears work. Do I need a complete overhaul or change the filter and solenoid?


After making sure trans is full on trans fluid and checks good next try cleaning out the electrical plug, BIG GREY PLUG with lots of wires on the top side of trans, passenger side right next to exhaust. Sometimes they get water in them and short them out causing them to not shift. Also check the fuses inside. Look for shift solenoid. There should at least be one or two. If fuses and plug all check out good it is possible that solenoids are bad. A bad sparg assembly could also cause problem Inside trans. Let me know what you find. If still no forward pull down in first gear and see if it move. If so trans will need to be removed.

Trans fluid is full right? If it's full, when was the last time trans oil was changed? NEVER go by manufacturers interval they couldn't care less if your trans dies. Change fluid every 25K. It's way cheaper than a new unit. If you read manual, "severe service" is just about anything more than sitting in your garage!!
About slipping...if unit is full and change does not help, you need a rebuild. Only trust a reputable shop to do this. Ask people you know before turning it over to just anyone! It's a machine...sometimes even with the best care they break. If it broke get the best people to fix it.

Transmission-overdrive not working properly


check the transmission fluid first .
============
overdrive allows the engine to run at lower RPM's , which increases the fuel
economy and also the transmission runs cooler
