I scanned it and I am getting a P1756 code ... so it looks like I will be ordering a governor pressure solenoid and sensor

UPDATE: Finally got my parts in yesterday (Governor solenoid and pressure sensor) and installed them, new filter and 5.5Qts of ATF4 and it is good to go. All fixed and shifting fine!

Don't get cheap parts. It's much better to get OEM. I got mine from www.kolak@aol.com

With the sensors and gaskets expect to pay around 180.00 maybe a little more.

i got mine from transmission parts usa
http://www.transmissionpartsusa.com/...rts_s/1569.htm
I was not about to pay $118 for just one sensor at the jeep dealer.
Paid around $50 per sensor, plus $12for gasket and filter and another $50 on ATF

I'm really torn on whether to rebuild my 42re or just buy a brand new unit.

Think I'll keep looking for a trans shop that feels right. Last one didn't seem too interested really.

I had a shop put metal shavings in the pan then call me over to take a look at it. Turns out that it was a hundred dollar sensor making it shift like crap and the shop wanted 3000 for a rebuild. I have a really hard time trusting any shop with trans work.

Just curious what sensor did go bad?

I'm glad your transmission is working as it should! Could this issue also affect a 46RE? As Melk saw this morning, I am looking to pick up a 5.9L Limited soon that is shifting a little funny. The service history is unknown so I am trying to generate a list of parts to replace (ie: TPS) or upgrade (cooler) as well as flush the system...

I bought a 5.9 that would only go in first and reverse. I was hoping that it was the governor pressure sensor/solenoid. It ended up being the transmission speed sensor. Even better because I didn't have to drop the pan. It shifts great now. So it could be a possibility with the 46RE.

I seen the throttle position sensor sometimes causes a problem as well as the speed sensor on the transmission. But the governor press sensor and solenoid seem to be more prevelant

Were the faulty conditions consistent with the gov sensor and solenoid? This one I drove seemed normal then off then ok again, then another random funny shift which seems more like a dirty sensor...
