Default Hi I had the same problem

I was keeping it in over drive way too much as well as when i bought it the Transfer case was cracked so that was causinf some real hairy issues. as for the transmissing I was getting a bucking going from a lower gear to a higher gear. it was like it was stuck in over drive and could not downshift. I tried somehting that I usually dont do. I bought some Lucas automatic tranny lube I sucked out a quart then put this stuff in. the next step was the tranny shop for me. I took it for a test drive and after about 3 miles it acted like a whole new transmission. It was shifting properly down shifting properly ect.. So you might want to try a can of that. I dont know if it will help the problem but it made my problem go away. Like I said U usually dont try liquid fix in a can but I figured for the 11 dollars it would not hurt befpre spending at the minimum 1400. for a rebuild. I hope this helps
