42re stuck in third...
so without any notice, my tranny gave out. now im stuck in third, can get it into second if i manualy drop it down into 1. changed trans fluid an filter, no help, but alot of shrapnel in the pan... so im wondering if a replacment or a swap is in order.. i got the 95 limited with the 4.0L, 249 tcase, an 3:73 gears.. it is a DD, but i like to play of course so what would be a good upgrade? or better yet how hard would the ax-15 swap be if i had a 94 xj donor?
ild realy rather just do the AX-15 swap if i can find a suitable donor vehichle. but even manualy shifting i still only get second an third gear. that gives me a top speed of forty mph. does anyone know if the AX-15 would even mate up to the NP249? ild rather not loose my AWD, but if i had to it would be so worth it to have a manual trans! ive been reading through write ups on the swap, but just wasnt sure if i could do with my tcase. if not, could i use the 242 tcase to still keep a AWD option? any help from some of you "ole pros" would be appreciated!
i mustve put a boring title on this thread! lol im the only one here! well every day i read through more threads an now im starting to wonder if i have a bad kick down cable... unfortunatly i can only afford to try one possibility a week due to funds, but ill try that next. then i still need help, or just to find the right thread on what those sencers ive heard mentioned going bad on 42re's. just figure with the mileage im at it couldnt hurt... 206k and still strong! (even in limp mode! LOL!)
