Transmission Problem- Solenoid

Having some problems with the automatic transmission on my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Occasionally it acts as if it is stuck in first gear and will not shift out. If you turn it off and wait or sometime then press the overdrive button or cycle through the gears or some other random magic it will go back to normal. When it runs normal it seems to be happy the transmission does not slip or act strange leading me to believe it s something other then the tranny failing....

When looking through the forum I found a great post that talked about some problems with the governor pressure solenoid however this was for a v8 model and I am not sure they have the same transmission as my I6. Any help or suggestions would be much loved...Thanks

The 4.0 has the 42RE tranny. The parts that you are talking about are the Governor Pressure Sensor and the Governor Pressure Solenoid. I am having similar issues with my Jeep and I am planning on replacing both of these in the coming weeks.

Other people that have had this problem have all said that before you decide to rebuild the transmission, you should change these two parts out. It also sounds like the majority of the people who replace these parts don't have any issues with their tranny's afterward.

Kolak (kolak@aol.com) has the best prices on these parts. Contact him.

Yep. It sounds like they are not that had to get to. I think the haynes manual shows a diagram.

Governor Pressure Sensor and the Governor Pressure Solenoid.

I have a 2000 jeep Wrangler 4.0. the issue with this transmission is that it needs to warm up to allow it to engage reverse and forward, once its warmed up it shifts with No Issues. My question is could it be the Governor Pressure Sensor and the Governor Pressure Solenoid that is the issue ? any help would be awesome.

USE THE YOUTUBE SEARCH! Plenty of vids on this. Infact, the guy above me who is posting in the wrong forum, resurrected an ancient thread that I posted a great instructional video in just a couple threads up.
