Have Jeep Questions? Ask a Jeep Repair Expert for Answers
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.
Are you saying you apply throttle and the rpms are slow to rise?
Does it act like its in the wrong gear?
Doe the engine have any running issues?
Any warning lights on?
Does this occur at all speeds?
When you are taking off and this occurs does it act like it is in the wrong gear?
Will the rpms increase but speed does not?
How long does the hesitation last?
Prior to past trans service was the trans oil dirty or did it have an odor?
I believe your delay is being caused by a transmission issue. More likely from a weak piston seal on the under drive clutch causing the clutch plates to not remain compressed. The prior fluid indicates that it was contaminated with friction material worn off the clutch plates. There is not a fix in a bottle. Eventually an overhaul will be needed.
