i have a 88 cherokee 4.0l auto. i was out playing and got in some deep water, almost over the hood. started working it back and forth trying to get out, went to shift and the motor died. got pulled out, took awhile but got it to start. now it wont shift right. to get it to move i have to put it in 1st and give it a lot of gas. any ideas of what i wrecked?

drain it out and refill .. try again if the fluid is milkshake color straberry that is.. well it wont last long.. time for a rebuild.

eh worst comes to worst, I've got a '89 XJ Limited, trans is great, I'm parting it out if ya want a replacement trans if it's the same one that's under mine.
