This is what happened:

I plowed snow all day with my jeep and pulled a few people out and then progressively I started hearing a whinning sound. (presumably my torqe converter) and I also noticed that it was not dropping into gear R or D as quick as normal. I also noticed that it would slip a little when getting on it hard. I only noticed this in 1 gear. Can any of you transmision people tell me what you think it is. I was thinking a dirty filter or bad pump. Or maybe something in the valve body. fluid looked good. Havent yet but im going to change my filter and 4 qt of my fluid in a while any other help would be great thanks.

Re: Help.....Again

1. First and Reverse need the most pressure applied to the clutch to engage.
2. If you're plowin' snow... it's more resistance you need to overcome.
3. The clutch and band for first and reverse is common.
4. My guess is that the band material or the clutch pack material is burned.
5. Smell the fluid for a burned smell, or fiber suspended in the fluid.
6. If there's some there... it's reubild time.
7. If not, then a simple flush, filter change and refill may help.
8. If I was a bettin' man, I'd say it's rebuild time as the clutch is slipping.

Re: Help.....Again

In my "BigUgly" a `73 Chevy Blazer, I had about the same problems, it would slip in first and rev. I decided to rebuilt it and the clutch plates were shot, it only had 187k miles on it. The clutch packs are like motorcycle packs, if you are low on fluid the plates heat up with the added resistance of snowplowing, it could have wore the organics off. L8r,

Re: Help.....Again

Well I went ahead and changed the fluid and filter and it quit with all its problems I guess it was just a dirty filter. the fluid looked all right and there wasn't much more than normal material in the pan. I just changed it all 2 years ago but I dont run it much in the summer. I guess I need to start. I've had to fix a lot of stuff that went bad this winter, and thats hard to do on Christmas day with 6 " of snow and all stores closed. Thank you guys for your help. I will say this though, the Jeep pushes snow better than any truck I ever drove. Man I love my jeep.
