I just bought a 94' jimny. automatic trans. everything was fine until recently.
whats happening is when i start my car and i go to place it in drive and i depress the pedal. it doesnt pick up and go. (there is no rmp reading, kinda acts like its in neutral) same thing if i am in reverse.
only thing i have noticed is that when i can get it to start driving i normally have to let it sit for a couple minutes and then try. (i do live up north where we drop below freezing)
any idea whats going on?

.Have you checked the transmission fluid level? That's where I would start.

Your first problem is going to be identifying exactly what vehicle you have - for starters, Suzuki never sold a Jimny in the US, and a 94 Jimny in other countries would probably be the equivalent of an SJ series vehicle (SJ410 or SJ413), also known as the Sierra & Samurai, and as far as I know, those didn't have automatic transmissions.

If what you have is used Japanese domestic, good luck getting it sorted.

it is a japanese domestic, right hand drive, the whole 9 yards, but redone here within the states.

I know this is not what you want to hear, but your best bet is probably going to be taking it to whoever "redone" it - we don't know what you have, we don't know what engine, we don't know what transmission, we don't know what was done to it - all we can do is guess, and if that's the situation, then your guess is literally as good as mine.
