Replace/Repair Governor Pressure Sensor

Thanks in advance for any responses...

I am having shifting/slipping problems with my Jeep.
I just got my 2002 Jeep laredo back from aamco transmission repair and they said that 2 codes pulled when they ran a diagnostic check:

1757 - Transmission control pressure not equal to target
1762 - Governor Pressure Sensor input was too high or low for 3 park/neutral calibrations.

They quoted me $1600-2100 to repair.

I do not know anything about transmissions. I want to make sure they are not quoting too high. Does anyone have any suggestions or know if their quote is reasonable?

Thanks again

$1600 to rebuild the whole thing maybe but not to just put new sensors. I got quoted $1400 to have mine rebuilt.

Holy crap...this is my first day here and I really hope you didnt pay that much. Ive had to fix my gov. tranny sensor/solenoid twice cause I keep getting it wet, but it only cost me $250. The parts are only $60 from a Mopar dealer.

Same code, said my tranny fluid pressure was at or above +3 PSi for 1,2,3 gear. Check around and dont let them take you take you for a sucker.

My 2001 laredo (98,000 miles) just gave me the exact same codes and the shop quoted me $2,250 for a transmission re-build.

Is the re-build necessary?

If the tranny shifted fine before the codes, then odds are a rebuild it not needed.

Thanks for the advice. Everything seemed to be working fine before about a week ago when the engine started to rev to about 3000 rpms while driving at 20-30 mph. A few days later, the transmission light came on and then I took it in.

I think i'm going to go after a second opinion and go from there.

Hey, did you ever figure out the issue? That is definitely wayyy too high, I got quoted that much for an entire rebuild! It's a really really easy job..I'm looking to do it myself.

@flandaz13, where did you get the parts from...dealer? I'm having a hard time finding them.

thanks!
