AHhhh..... gotcha. We were on the phone. And I was wondering why I'd never heard of a "Asian" trans in a Jeep.
I got to look at the Jeep Specs section on this web page, but what are the models of trans that come in Cherokees ???
I was on the phone with the guy, he said his parts supplier was $400+ for the switch, but he knew his customer's had sourced them far cheaper. Dude is like 70 some years old, my guess is he's not logged on the the web, he's turning wrenches.
On a happy note, other than the stuff I told him to fix, he found only the rear pinion seal leaking, and said the Jeep I bought is very solid and should run forever. Didn't even need a tuneup. Plugs/cap-n-rotor/wires were new.
