Rough Downshift

Hi all. Just bought an '03 Wrangler X last night. About eight years ago I sold a 95 Wrangler and missed owning one ever since.

So, I have the 4.0 w/ auto trans. It upshifts just fine and downshifts smoothly through all the gears except 1st. Pretty much every time I pull up to a stop light or such as its downshifting it "cluncks" into 1st.

Not sure if this is normal or what.

Thanks for any recommendations or advice.

Nick

Welcome to WF!


make sure the tranny fluid level is good (check while vehicle is running)

also check for the clarity of the fluid, may need to be changed

this is the basic starting point
