No O/D problem.

I have a 97 jeep grand Cherokee 5.2. I changed my tranny fluid and filter and now it wont go into O/D. I didn't mess with anything. I cant find anything on the net so i thought id sign up and ask a question. thanks for the help guys.

Going to ask anyways... Are you positive you have the correct fluid level?


Does the O/D light come on when you press the button? Might be that coincidentally the O/D solenoid went bad. Or perhaps it got blocked by freed wear metal after the filter change.

The 42re has the O/D and TCC solenoid as an assembly not sure about your 46.

Hmm I'm having similar problems. At freeway speeds the 46RH tranny in my 95 ZJ wont stay in overdrive. It'll shift into OD then downshift then shift back into OD then downshift again. It'll keep shifting and dropping out of OD if I keep that speed and RPM. Usually when I'm going up a hill or something. Just recently the light on the OD switch on my dashboard stopped working but when I press the button I can feel it shift. Any ideas?
