You get the brake lines installed yet? What's the update? How's the bike performing?

Nooo

I'm moving to Alaska at the end of the month, so I haven't had enough time or motivation to install a ton of parts on the Jeep. Plus, the weather is so nice here right now I've been riding the bike as often as I can.

The Jeep has had an issue from stop where I gas it and it won't move for a few seconds while the engine revs that makes it a pain in the *** to drive. I made a post about it almost a year ago and still haven't resolved it. If anyone has any suggestions, please share. I'm leaning towards bad fuel pump because it usually seems to coincide with low fuel levels, but IDK.

Does anyone have any suggestions for my hesitation issues? Would really like to get it taken care of before I leave for Alaska.

Not sure honestly. If you're thinking it's the pump, you could test and see if you're getting proper pressure at the rail.

Can always start a fresh thread and see what hits you get. I'm sure someone has some ideas.

Yup. Get a gauge on that fuel rail.

Called my mechanic to have him take a look at the issue, he asked about tranny fluid after hearing issues. Its pretty new fluid, but I checked it today just to be safe. Level is way too high. Could this be causing my issues? Decided to drain it a bit to fix the issue and my tranny fluid drain bolt is just spinning in the fluid pan. WTF is going on? Probably just going to table everything till the mechanic checks it out Monday.

Could get a pump and a long tube, and just suck it out from the dipstick. Definitely sounds like the drain bolt is stripped.

Just curious, did you check the fluid with it up to operating temp, jeep running, and in neutral? You can end up with false readings otherwise.

Did some research and it is definitely stripped. Seems to be a decently common problem. I might try the tube/pump method, because I really need to lower the level. I think its my issue.

Yeah, I checked the level that way...Level is above the max line.

Well, heard back from the mechanic this afternoon...Scan told him a&b solenoids are bad as well as the NSS. He recommended I take it to a tranny specialists. How hard is it to swap out the solenoids? Whats the best place to purchase a new NSS? Thanks in advanced.

Don't purchase a new NSS (they aren't cheap), remove the current one, clean it out, reapply some dielectric grease, and reinstall. Just take your time and be careful cause they aren't the easiest to get off, and are pretty much all plastic. There are write-ups around. I used wood shims to separate mine from the trans.

As far as solenoids. I'm just about positive all the solenoids are accessible once you drop the transmission pan.

EDIT: I would do the NSS first, and see if that doesn't fix it on it's own.

I have already fixed the NSS previously when I had a no start issue, I just want to get a new one for piece of mind. Really just looking for the best place to purchase the parts at this point.

I took it to a transmission specialist today and they ran the codes and put them into whatever program they use to figure out how to resolve codes. He showed me the numbers, replacing the NSS resolved the fault codes about 10 to 1 compared to replacing the solenoids. Went ahead and bought a new NSS from rock auto and hopefully it will solve the issue. I'm really running out of time, Alaska bound the first of June.

I drove the Jeep to my parents in Tallahassee where we'll be till we drive to Alaska. Local Jeep guy is going to do my axle seals , sort out my transmission issues, and figure out any other leaks. The auto shipping company is very picky about leaks, so I have to get them all sorted before its shipped to Alaska.

NSS did not fix the shifting issue.
