Question 2nd gear slippage

Hello,

I have a 1997 4.0 automatic wrangler with 148,000 miles on it. Lately I've been having a problem with it going into 2nd gear when I first pull out of my driveway. It will run fine in all other gears and in 2nd once it finally engages but it will basicallly slip into neutral for 2-4 seconds and then it will run fine. Anyone feedback would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Also is there any good websites that give diagrams an have just about any part you could possibly ever need. For example my heater knob cracked in half and I'm looking to replace it

I would start by checking the fluid level. If its low than my guess is that is your problem.

Thanks for the link. I'll check it tomorrow and possibly end up changing the oil and filter

Is there a way to tell if it needs changed?

Also found out that it only does it when it's cold. And it's either 2nd or 3rd but not both
