I hope this is in the right section, but anyway, been coming here for some info for a time now & finally decided to register. Good resource, so thanks in advance for responses.
Okay, so I have a 1998 Cherokee Classic (XJ?) with 147k
. I bought it for pretty cheap, but that meant it had quite a few things that needed fixing. Most pressing is that the transmission is a little wonky, in that it doesn't like to shift up
sometimes from 1st to 2nd & 2nd to 3rd (this is just guesswork). If I rev it up a little and let off the gas, then hit the gas again, it's as if I can manually shift it up that way. Also, recently it's started to jump in RPMs a little while idling
, from 750RPM to 1000/1100RPM.
The previous owner's mechanic told me I needed new Transmission Shift Solenoids. I hope that's the problem because I just bought a kit off of ebay. So my first question is, is this the compatible kit for my Jeep?
I've got the codes checked, they are:
- Input Speed Sensor (ISS) 1 Circuit
The ECM has detected that the input speed signal changed suddenly.
Open or short circuit/Poor electrical connection/Faulty ISS
- Throttle Position Sensor
The throttle position signal is used for various systems in the vehicle.
Sensor open or shorted/Check wiring
- H02S12 Circuit Condition (Heated oxygen sensor bank sensor 2)
The powertrain control module uses the oxygen sensor to calc air/fuel ratio in the exhaust
02 Sensor defective/Fuel Systems running rich or lean/Engine misfire condition/Fuel pressure very high or low fuel pump or pressure regulator
- O/D Switch pressed low for 5 min
O/D Switch value has not changed for over 5 min
O/D Switch shorted to ground/Failure/Electrical Problem
- 3-4 Shift Solenoid Relay Condition
ECM has detected an open or shorted condition on the relay circuit.
Open or shorted relay/Electrical Problem
I also read here
that this could be attributed to the Gov Pressure Sensor & Solenoid. So I decided it might be best to buy a kit that includes a new filter & gasket and go ahead and change it all at once, but where can I buy this? And is this the right kit for my Jeep? How do I know my transmission is the 42RE version?

Thanks again for reading and excuse my newbness!
