If it fails in 10k miles after the flush it would have failed at 10k miles without it. That flushing old dirty ATF out and replacing it with fresh ATF causes failures is nothing but an old wive's tale.Fluid is "black" your say. Gentlemens bet here Jerry or others that his trans wont last 10K after that flush.
I just did this trans flush and filter change on my LJ about a month ago and it had not been done previously. The fluid was in rough shape. I'm glad I did it and my trans is running noticeably better. It is a messy job but not difficult at all.Hell 10k will get me through 2 years.
You've got the infamous '05-'06 hard shift from 1st to 2nd problem. Don't hesitate....call Mark at WranglerFix. If you want to read about it, there are TONS of threads out there, but I honestly wouldn't bother. Many have gone before you with this problem. It's your PCM. It cannot be repaired and the ONLY solution is a WranglerFix PCM. It's a 10 minute replacement job once the PCM arrives. If you need more convincing that the PCM is the issue, grab a scanner that can read transmission codes. I'll bet it will show P0218 and P0714.Came here to post a transmission question and this thread seems to apply.
Got an 06 LJ, automatic. Last couple days the transmission has been acting different. Shifting from Park to Drive is fine, nice and solid response from the trans. But as i drive, the trans stays in 1st gear too long and then shifts a bit hard. Same thing, but much more subtle changing from 2 to 3. After a few stops and repeating the process, the trans starts shifting normal. Downshifting is fine. Only seems to occur after its been sitting for a while. I checked the fluid and its a little low so i'm adding some when i get off work. The fluid was still purple\red. But is there something else that might be causing this?
