TJNewbie Mine does this on occasion when it's cold outside. when I start it and let it run/warm up for 10-15 minutes, it cures it for me. (my fluid is good)

bardb I assume you are talking about slipping (rpms rise without a rise in speed). Check the fluid level. I suspect you are low.

IslandTJ How is your fluid level?

Jeep momentarily feels like it's in neutral while transmission is in drive

My 2001 TJ recently started feeling like it's in neutral every once in a while when the auto transmission is in drive. It seems to happen more frequently soon after I start it up and it only occurs when going slow. Anyone have any idea what could be causing this? Thanks in advance.
