My 01 auto started a similar symptom where the jeep would shudder and sometimes stall when shifting from park into drive. Would behave like a manual tranny when the clutch would be engaged quickly, killing the engine.
In my case, the TCC was not being commanded "on" by the PCM; swapped a known good converter and the problem stopped.

Lurching and stalling...
So, part of the theory in buying my 2000 TJ Sport last fall was to learn a bit about vehicles (well, learn everything really), and how to work on them. I've been noticing a few issues the last couple of weeks, and am looking at where to start for solutions.
1. She delays in shifting on the lower gears a bit. Seems to get better as she runs longer.
2. Sometimes while sitting at a light, she tried to lurch forward against the brake. No idea what causes that.
3. A couple of times she has stalled herself out at a light. It really feels like it is related to the lurching issue.
Anybody experienced similar issues? What was the result?
