Default slipping trans

my trans slips when its cold . here`s the scenario , start it up and back up 60 feet (fine ) pull up 50 feet to stop sign (fine ) go to take off and it is like it isnt in gear just revs . rev it higher and it will HIT then take off . if I have to sit at the sign for a few I can feel it release then eventually re engage and drag down the motor for a bit then its fine . it drives fine when warm and has done this for at least the last 100,000 miles reliably, sorry , I have an 02 tj with 3 speed auto and 4.0

Never change trans fluid on high mileage vehicles.

Changing and flushing are 2 different things. I personally have no issues with changing trans fluid on high mileage vehicles but I wouldnt have it flushed.

Why does "flushing fluid" matter on a high mileage trans?

I have had a couple transmissions take a shit right after being flushed. I don't know for sure but I think it cleans them out too much. Dropping the pan, changing the filter and topping off the fluid doesn't seem to disturb the bs in the system as much as flushing it.

I agree with you chad. High mileage trans have a lot of built up clutch pack residue and flushing it could cause the valve body to stick or operate improperly. This will burn up your clutches
