|malexii||Had the same problem here. Found a re-manufactured one for $1500 but went with a $1900 one with a three year 50,000 mile warranty. If you have it rebuilt, check what warranty they will give. Every place I checked was different.|

|DallanG||When I bought my 98 a few months ago (3 spd auto), it would stall at times when coming to a stop.When pulling out from a stop, the engine would rev & then the trans would clunk into gear.When I put it in reverse, it would make a whirring noise that came up through the shifter.The trans was probably never serviced, & it had 94,000 miles on it. The trans shop said there was alot of metal in the pan, & the torque converter was probably contaminated with metal. It needed a complete rebuild & a new converter. It shifts great now & there are no more oil leaks. The total bill including 6% Pa. sales tax was just over $1,900.00. I also had them service the rears & transfer case & install a new pinion seal in the rear rear. This was included in the total price.|

If it was mine I would do a flush and filter change
add lucas trans and get every mile I could
That is way high for a rebuild around here

Transmission rebuild or replace?
I have a 98 TJ that is breakin my heart. I bought it knowing that the transmission had a problem, but didn't know exactly what the problem was. Seller adjusted the price fairly for undiagnosed problem, so I don't feel that I got robbed. Basic issue- extremely weak coming out of a stop. Tops out at about 45 going uphill, and cannot start from a stop on a hill. Once moving, she does fine. 4WD works like a champ.
After taking it in to the shop, they found significant metal shavings when they pulled off the transmission pan. Rebuild estimate: $1900.
Currently has a 3-speed automatic transmission without overdrive. Should I rebuild the existing transmission, or is there are smarter option? I wonder if I should put in something different.
