95 grand cherokee 4.0L shifting problem
I have a grand cherokee that seems to hesitate when shifting between 1st and 2nd gear. If I am accelerating under normal driving when it gets to around 15 of 20 mph when it is shifting it hesitates on the shift. I can watch the tach go up and down and feel it jerking. once it gets past this shift it drives fine. If I floor the throtle it seems to do alright. No check engine light or anything like that is showing. Anyone have any ideas what could be causing this?

If the fluid is good, correct type (with MS7176 - ATF+3 min), and correct level, maybe the transmission bands need adjustment.

The ZJ transmission has two bands IIRC, and there is an adjustment procedure that can be accomplished when changing fluid/filter.
