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.

Gotta love this 42rle

I'm about as stoked as you man. Kind of glad I wasn't the only one experiencing that BS. and REALLY glad I didn't let the trans shop dig into my trans.

I was just thinking that, I don't know why so many are popping up though. Seems like after I posted my thread a week or so ago, people came out of the woodwork.

Either way, when it's not acting like a *****, i haven't minded my trans too much. It's okay for what it is..

Well that was short lived. It's already acting up again. Not as severe yet though.

And it sounds like I've got an exhaust leak. Awesome.

Mine started acting back up yesterday. I knew it was going to happen. Oh well. I've been talking with Tony (flatlander) says it has something to do with a seal inside the transmission.

Stupid ****ing bolts.

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.

Front bumps, with a stop plate glued on to prevent it from getting jammed again


Got the rears in! Huge pain in the ***, but they're in. Used lube, pry bars, hammers, screwdrivers, muscle, and even had to shave the outside edge down a bit. But they're in!

They're glued to a plate with a bolt tacked in it. Keeps the prothane from "floating" in the rear coil, and it's also somewhat adjustable. Can't wait to test them.
