I just replaced my transmission with a newly rebuilt one in my Jeep grand cherokee. It started up fine and I let it warm up then put it into nuetral and it was fine but when I put into drive it would surge and almost die every few seconds. Any ideas of what I did wrong?
Do you

The linkage is the first thing I would check. You can actually reverse the shifter by not having the slide in the right position. Thus, lo becomes hi and the opposite.
