Default Trans slipping

Have a 98 XJ sport 2wd, For some reason under hard braking once i get to a stop if i accelerate it revs then slams into gear... If i am carefull and gradually accelerate sometimes it will catch in a low RPM. Now it doesnt always do this. What would it be?

Welcome to the forum!

What color is your trans fluid? Hows the level? When was the last time you checked it?

If it's very dark, see my sig, #3.
