Mine started to slip when it sat for long periods. I changed the filter and fluid and adjusted the bands. It no longer slips. I had a case of ATF +3 so I used that for fluid. Otherwise I think the fluid to use would be ATF +4. If you have the factory dip stick look on the stick and it will tell you to check it in neutral and what fluid to use. Just keep in mind that was before the ATF +4 came out. That is for my 99 and I asume it woukd be the same for a 97.

|solman||With the jeep running at up to operating temperature. park it, move the shifter through each of the gears and then put it in neutral. Then check the level on the dip stick. Keep the jeep running the whole time, make sure you are on level ground and chock the wheel to keep the jeep from moving.|

|hopper71286||Also, what is the best way to go about checking the transmission fluid level? Car running? Car off? Car in Park? Car in Neutral? I've heard all of them...|

|Mr Mac||Have you checked the transmission fluid level? Low levels or a clogged filter could cause these kinds of symptoms as would the pumps/pistons/seals inside your transmission. Yes, a trip to the transmission shop is probably a good idea.|

Just joined the forum!! I just got a 97 TJ with a 4" lift and 33" tires. The issue that im having is, when I put it into gear (automatic trans), i have to rev it up to about 3K before the car even moves. Then once i get going, in first and second gear, it feels like im running out of gas. It sputters real bad, to the point that i wait to make sure there is no traffic before pulling out. I thought maybe it was a spark problem so I did a tune up. New plugs, wires, cap, and rotor. But it didn't fix the problem. Now, a buddy of mine just got a 99 TJ and when you jack up the back end of his off the ground, you spin the tire one time, and the driveshaft spins 3.75 times. When we did mine last night, one rotation of the tire spun the driveshaft 1.5 times. Any ideas? Firestone said I need to take it to a transmission shop. Do you think this is accurate?
Thanks for the help!
