Transmission or clutch problem
hey guys lets see i bought an automatic 99 jeep wrangler in dallas and i live in Louisiana it made the trip home amazingly, its been about 8 months now since then and i have put alot of work into it keep in mind this is my first jeep. Ok so that being said just recently i got the gaskets replaced on my transmission because it was a little leaky but now i have a new problem it dosent happen all the time but it does happen when i have 3-4 people riding with me the rpms rev up and then back down again no grinding or bad noises but i am wondering if this is tranny slip or is it my clutch going bad again any help would be much a help.

Check the fluid. Should be to the full mark, not shy of it.
If thats not it could be the trans slipping.
Automatic trans will usually not make any grinding noise.

its about half way up the ok i will fill it up but if the tranny is slipping dosent it make a grinding noise?

i'd put money on the fact that it is NOT a clutch problem :D. you may need a transmission flush there could be crap in the tranny.

you may need to get a metric adjustable wrench or left hand monkey wrench, some snew, and about 10' of fallopian tube. check back when you gather those supplies and i can give you the rest of the directions.

I have also seen a flush give these auto trannys some more life
Good Luck

ok well when i got the gaskets changed i got the flush and new filters put in so that has already been done unless this tranny place screwed me over.

jgano23 12-29-2008 07:49 PM

it is entirely possible, but not too likely. did they do an actual flush or did they just change the fluid?
