It hasnt been driving in the drive gear for a bit now, so ive been looking into what it is, ive read that it could be the TCM, so i found the Tcm under my steering wheel area, took it out, and nothing changed with the jeep so i figured thats what the problem is..
now my problem is, Where the eff can i buy a TCM other then a Junk yard?
I geuss i should specify, i can drive it in 1, 2 and drive, but i have no overdrive and when im at a stop and start in drive, it revs but accelerates slow like its stuck in 3rd.
It is an automatic.
and before anyone says 'use the search' I did. for a week ish. and all ive found is that it could be TCM or speed sensors?
I looked around awhile back to try and find someone who sold them and I did find someone though I can't recall at the moment who. It may have been one of the chain parts places. I think I googled around a lot and ended up googling the stock part number and finding someone.
They were like $180 though IMS so I just got another at a junkyard. $30 and it fixed my problem. I had the limp mode even after replacing the sensor and solenoid. JY TCM fixed it. FWIW I used a 94 TCM and a 93 TCM and they both worked the same in my Jeep. 4.0 42RE.
I figure it's probably bad caps like the PCM but I haven't gotten around to replacing them to see if it makes a difference.
Limp mode starts you out in 2nd and will let you shift to 3rd but that's all you get. Is you overdrive light on? You can pull trans codes using the same procedure to check the check engine light. Turn the key on-off-on-off-on within five seconds and it will flash codes.
Ill check my codes again later, I forget now which ones came up last time I did it, but I am got the day off work today so ill find a tcm hopefully at a scrap yard, then im picking up some steel to make bumpers out of.. So if I find a tcm and it doesn't work ill scan the jeep and let ya know, thanks a lot for your help.
Sorry, yes that's right. Limp mode gets you 2nd but you have to move the shifter to 1 or 2 manually to get it. D just gets to 3rd. If your OD light is out I would suspect the TCM but it could be something else. I remember there are a couple good threads on here about it that helped me out.
