push it into place it is alot easier if you lube the connector orings and shift shaft seal first


torque bolts to 100 in/lbs install filter this one has the deep pan with the deep filter


reusable pan gasket and remeber magnet in bottom of pan


if this bolt is too long the neutral safety switch will catch on it ... if the neutral safety switch is in place and you put too long of bolt here the pan will leak like a bastard and you will think it is the neutral safety switch leaking


****** DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN THIS FITTING IF YOU REMOVE OR REPLACE IT YOU WILL CRACK THE CASE YOU WILL CRACK THE CASE ***
sonnax makes a fix if you do crack it BUT just DON'T crack it ok


TA DA your done

1995 GCL 6 cyl. Trouble with auto Trans
Bought this used and ran great for a while and now it goes up to 3000 RPMs before shifting into second. Once there, the other gears shift OK. The kicker is, it doesnt happen all the time and yesterday on the parkway, she was running fine then downshifted on its own and I saw the OD light flicker on and off. Then that stopped and I got home with no trouble.
Had the transmission fluid changed today and the fluid and filter looked as good as new and the problem came back on my way home from the shop. I just came back from the store and it didnt happen once.

Baxy, I'm assuming that the OD accumulator spring is a common thing to break? I've had two break on me, the first causing total loss of all forward gears.

hmmm I don/t know if I have ever had a complaint from a customer and then finding just the OD spring broken it really should just give a bit firmer shift because there is no spring to cushion the fluid rushing into the OD piston

Awesome writeup. Is there a place you can recommend that gets you all this parts? The shift kit you used, stuff like that?

we have a bulk supplier in Calgary Alberta but your best bet is a transmission shop or online

RE46 ,,,Any thoughts on my up coming repair. I swapped out my trans about 3 mo ago. Now I have lost overdrive. If I switch the OD select button to off. the jeep shifts fine 1 thru 3rd. If I select the button for OD or 4th. the tans nearly locks up, its like I am hitting the breaks. Now when it initially went, It was a loud horrible sound which sounded to me like a chain in the transfer jumping teeth. but of course it was not.

Now I believe it is in the OD unit and the all data info I have tells me I can swap it out with my old one. sound to you like I am barking up the right tree by replacing the OD unit.

Hi ...I have a loose something in the shifter linkage on the transmission 94zj v-8 4x4.... The shaft that I assume goes into the throttle body is loose. I had to adjust the shifter all the way to get it to park... Plus now I have to hold it in the low to move forward. As for the shifting it does fine on the shifting part... a little slow but it works.. The speedo quit about a week ago. this has caused it to shift longer. But i guess that is lack of speed input from computers.
Is the fixing the shaft a hard project... I can see it involves the basic fluid change teardown, And I think the throttle body will need removed. Does removing the throttle body have any spring loaded parts.
Or is this a it's broke and can't be fixed thing. I know without looking its hard to tell what's wrong. But I would like a starting point. Rather than flying in blindly.
The teardown Faq is amazing...
Thanks
