1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Repair Question
Your description is real confusing but mixing new and old transmission fluid is not uncommon. Torque converters haven't had drain plugs for decades. The only way to get the old fluid out of them is with special flushing machines.
If it's not shifting correctly, that is a different issue. It sounds like someone already tried a flush thinking that was going to automatically solve some mechanical problem. The best approach is to let a mechanic at a transmission shop drive it and give you an opinion on repair cost.

I know what you mean I was very confused when he said that to me as well. He also said that he has been driving it for 8 months and never had any issue with it. I asked him if it felt like it was going to slip and he said not just switching between 2nd and 3rd i have to let off the gas.
On my 99 Grand Cherokee when it did that I changed the output shaft speed sensor and all was fine.
I have had a few people tell me that, is that easy to fix/change? I dont know that much about jeeps.
Oh yea on the drivers side of the trans just above the pan
thats great, sould i still get it flushed?
If the fluid looks other then red or is not the correct fluid then yes, it should have ATF+4 in it.
would it still be like a red color if he mixed old with new?
thank you so much for helping me.
Yes it would be. So if your not sure if the correct fluid is in it then I would flush it anyway.
okay thank you so much for helping me :D
