So for the last 6+ months I've been dealing with my transmission pissing me off. Until it got to normal operating temps, the trans would slam into 2nd, shudder, and I'd have high RPMs until it would shift. I've tried flushing the trans, new fluid and filter, adding a little extra fluid, but nothing worked. I just found a writeup yesterday on resetting the PCM so I gave it a shot and holy ****, it worked. Jeep shifts normal now. No more banging, shaking, or hesitating. Really easy to do too.
Disconnect the + lead from the battery, and touch it to the - lead for 30 seconds
Reconnect the + lead
Turn the ignition to the ON position (don't start the engine)
Turn headlights on
Turn headlights off
Turn the jeep off
Drive around and be happy
I did it just now and I swear it seems to have worked. I'll keep an eye on it this week and see what happens.
Removed the rear lower currie bumpstops today and installed (forced in) some Prothanes into the coils. Also (finally) fixed the front passenger side prothane that got jammed onto the upper bumpstop. Epoxied a plate onto the top to prevent that from happening again. Heads up, replace those damn Allen head bolts in the Currie upper bump stops with some hex heads. Such a pain in the *** to install/remove.
Also found where my exhaust leak is coming from. The manifold. Great.
Only pic for now. I'll get some of the bumps later.
