Has 109,000 miles, jsut made trip to KY, very humid here, while here i have started to notice a "clunk" during acceleration, before and after i turn on the Cruise control. It is not the clunk you might here with a U joint or something. But it SOUNDS like when you are in a car with a trunk and you've forgotten to latch the truck lid and it bobs up and down when you accelerate. It hasn't changed anything to do with the way the car drives, handles or gas mileage. I have looked for and found NO leaking beneath the car. Right now it's annoying, but i don't want to ignore it. I can't see anything loose. And it's only on acceleration. When we are in cruise mode, and we go up a hill and the car has to accelerate you hear it. When you are getting on the freeway getting up to speed you here it. Someone...suggestiuons?

Most repair shops will only do a complete rebuild. Reason is, they have a guarantee attached, and corporate policy dictates they cannot repair a partial problem. There is some merit to their logic, as in...most transmission (automatic) problems have a source...which may quickly disable or break another band or drive servo if there is no complete rebuild.
As for price, parts alone would only run $50-75, for standard reverse band...labor would still be full price...because they will still charge for removal and installation, and have to remove several other servos and bands to get to the reverse band.
Replace the MAF sensor. The starter is overheating due to cranking excessively. It has noyhing to do with the engine staying running. The MAF sensor is located as the first sensor out of air cleaner. It controls the fuel. Good luck and have a safe trip.
For the information given, and assuming forr a 94 it has a bunch of miles, I would bet on a slipping clutch along with a pressure plate that is glazed over. I doubt the transfer case, that's just a chain drive mechanism with nothing much to slip in there. In 2 wheel drive the transfer case drives pretty much straight through and shouldn't add to the problem.
If the clutch has over 80K on it, replace and resurface the pressure plate at the same time.
Does the clutch pedal have about 1/4" of play before it begins to engage? If not adjust the clutch play 1st and see if that helps.
Let me know if you have a further symptoms to share.
