I towed it to a trans shop and the guy said it drove fine for him, I had him drop the pan and check for any metal shavings but it was clean (just changed the tranny fluid 4 months before this). I played with the kickdown and it still sometimes starts off in second or third, it might of gotten a bit better, if I stay stopped for 10 seconds it sometimes drops into first otherwise I shift manually into first then back into drive and it works fine.

Any ideas?

97 Sport 4.0 32RH tranny 155k
Sounds like possibly the Trans. Governor solenoid ? I don't know anything about the 32rh. I hate automatics...the gov. solenoid is acting up/giving me very similar problems in my WJ (42re). I did get a code for it at one time.

Just a thought. Good luck with it!!

be careful though, its a sickness. You do one thing, then that leads to needing to do something else and so on and so on.
3" lift with wrangler tires is pretty much all I want on her right now....but damn, it's addicting.

Consider yourself lucky to have a Cherokee. Wranglers are far worse. Cause they tend to need things like engine swaps.

Only the 2.4L versions (Or a 3.8L JK) Nobody swaps their I6 until they literally drive it to pieces, it's one of the best engines ever built and almost perfectly suited to a Wrangler. (Hence why it's been used almost unchanged since its introduction in the '72 CJ-5-granted, it was a 4.2L, carb'd version then, but the only significant change was the slightly reduced block and swap to fuel injection in '87)

And Cherokees can get pricy fast, especially if you want to do real wheeling. You've got to do a lot more lifting to get the same tire size because of the small wheel openings, and the bumper options are small and pricey. And that's not even counting exo cages...

The best place to start is a 2" BB, since they're cheap and will get you to a decent tire size. After that, definitely invest in some sliders. It's not as big a deal for a Wrangler, but on the unibody Cherokees, a $150 set of rock sliders looks great and, more importantly, can save some serious money if you happen to drag your sills while wheeling.

Here's some Jeep porn for you guys-the latest round of 'Maybe we'll build these but probably not neener neener neener' Moab concepts from Jeep and Mopar:



Jeep Mighty FC: Throwback to the old FC-170. Started as a Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon, stretched, converted to COE, fitted with Mopar's new portal axle kit and some 40"s. Almost completely impossible to actually build, but very, very cool.



Jeep J12: Throwback to the old J10 pickup. Stretched Wrangler Unlimited, fitted with a custom longer bed and cab, and with a new grille and hood like that on the old Gladiator and J-Series trucks. Also 44/60 combo. Surprisingly, NOT just a mod of the NuKaiser from 2 years ago. Which means that Jeep has two totally functional retro-modern pickups rolling around. Those ****ers. Supposed to be case study as to whether people want their Wrangler truck to look like this or just a Wrangler.



Jeep Apache: Basically an Unlimited bukakke'd by the new Mopar Off-Road parts catalogue. Mopar lift, axles, interior bits and their new 6.4L Hemi conversion kit.

There's also two more Wranglers and a Grand Cherokee with Mopar and AEV bits bolted on, but they're not too exciting.
