I took my mother's LJ in for a trans fluid change with a trusted mechanic i met through work and told him about the hard abrupt shifting that occurs after the vehicle has sat for a while.  he hooked up his snap on scanner and was able to pull code p0218 which is a transmission over temperature code.  we were talkin and he said he normally only sees that code if the jeep had gotten stuck, or was buried in snow, and was overrevved.  My mother doesnt go four-wheelin, hasnt used the jeep on the mail route in over a year, just drives around town and occaisonal trips to pittsburgh or maryland.  the mechanic said that if the symptons come back or he pulls that code again that it may be a clogged trans cooler in the radiator and we both suggested just using an auxillary trans cooler.  

Has anyone else dealt with this problem?  Any suggestions on what to look for or what to do?
