46re ?

I bought a niner and was told it needed a new trans. The fluid was burnt and low. It also made a strange noise. My father in law added some additive and the noise went away. He said it went good.
The next day I replaced the fluid and filter. Now it seems to not want to shift and sometimes you have to pop in in N then back to D for it to shift.
Is this a bad trans or could it be a bad PCM or TPS?

Did you replace the additive that you drained out?

I tried some but didn't do much. He wouldn't say what he actually did to it just said it was "an old Indian trick". He's not even Indian..? :brick wall:

They don't have aux transmission coolers and they often overheat without them. This was a big mistake for 98 ZJ's.
You could try to find the gov pressure sensor and solenoid out of a JY ZJ and see if replacing those works but if you are not having a check engine light then it may not be the issue.
As a last resort I would try a couple bottles of some additive like maybe Lubeguard Red. Other than that you will probably need a re build but that will give the the chance to put a shift kit in and make it better.

A friend, who re builds his own ford trans, is supposed to help me re build it. If I didn't have to I wasn't going to though. What's a shift kit do for it?
