And, the same thing happened. Trans lost 2nd and 3rd gear this time luckily in my driveway.
The temp gauge reads 110 degrees, but the tansmission pan is hot to the touch, hot as in I cannot hold my hand on it.
I drove it 50 miles the other day, like 20 miles yesterday, and 20 miles today with NO issues. then I hopped in the truck to go to my friends house, and it wont shift out of 1st, and obviously as mentioned the transmission pan is super hot.
Well, at least you were able to do the engine swap itself and now just have the trans issue to figure out. You'll have to let us know what the shop says because given the symptoms and inconsistency I am curious. Hopefully it's nothing that requires too major of an expense.
Great hope it wont be a huge issue. I think you should do the Rhinogrill swap. How hard would it be to find the lights and grill. What about wiring the lights. Its funny how the cutout is already there.
Havent heard anything...judging by the part of town I dropped it off in i wouldnt be surprised if I go back and the jeep is stripped on blocks or gone and there is an entire different set of people in the office...
"we drove it around a bit yesterday, it acted up a little last night, but it was fine this morning, i've got a guy out driving it right now trying to get it warmed up a bit. I'll probably be pulling the pan here soon since we cant get it to do what you said, and it seems like something might be sticking in the valve body, or the governor could be weak and acting up"
Told me to call back in an hour or so and see how its going.
they seem to be telling me "we've got a guy out driving it" quite alot!!! Sounds like these guys are running all their errands in my jeep, haha. I cant really blame them for wanting to drive it so much though.....it IS pretty awesome, after all.
