Nand12 is correct. I had a similar issue on my WK. I had the delayed/lazy shifting right after a cold start. Refer to the latest TSB located here --> http://www.wkjeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wk_2101505.pdf This tsb explains suspect parts as well as identifying a suspect transmission that falls into this category under this TSB. Let us know what you find and results.

BTW mine was under warranty at the time and the dealer took care of the issue. Ill have to look up my service report and see what they did.

Re: Well this is weird

I am gonna go to the store tomorrow morning and get some ATF +4 and add about 1/2 a qt to it and see if that helps. BTW, i checked any way, it says full and its not burnt. But i know that the tech i talked to a while back said about 1/2 qt over fill should do the trick.

Re: Well this is weird

Sounds like a good idea Kyle, especially if its not covered under warranty since it is the cheapest option to start. Darn pan might just be a bit low. However if that does not work, check the TSB and this work order at the time to see what was done, parts and what not. Cheers.

Re: Well this is weird

Hey, thanks. When i first bought it the dealership said they reflashed the computer and it was all fixed. It did nothing. After that they were just trying to push me out of my 30 day warranty window. Now all my warranty covers is major parts.

Re: Well this is weird

It really is. There is literally nothing out there. I have been on all the websites, wasted tanks of gas looking and i am out of cash.

I been able to get by so far off of what people owe me (from parting out my xj, that had not finished paying) and by doing some side work for a friend. Other wise i am screwed for every bill i have right now. I have filled out applications all over the place. Even McDonalds isnt hiring. WTF. THANKS FOR HELPING OUT OBAMA. ANY TIME NOW WOULD BE NICE!!!!

Its not omg super stressful for me but i still have $800 worth of bills every month.

$350 Jeep

$250 Insurance (i have a good record, that was the cheapest i could get as a 23 yrd olf with an 05 wk)

$200 ish in misc Credit card bills (i was a stupid teenager when i got them)

$130 Cell, **** Sprint. (g/f and i swap payments on that back and forth)

and that does not include pocket money or cash i owe my parents that has racked up since ive been out of work or from the past.
