I am having a pretty consistent issue with my trans shifting from 2nd to 3rd it won't shift unless you let off the gas and wait for it to shift it does this about 70-80% of the time any ideas I will have to go get it scanned for codes. The trans fluid is good and clean is there a solenoid or something that could be the issue? I am not familiar with the transmissions on these jeeps. thanks in advance.
I am going to replace the tps, trans solenoid and sensor, fresh trans fluid and filter, hopefully that will help. I want to make sure this issue is resolved before it gets a lift and bigger tires and add stress to it.
Good luck with that one. Keep in mind the shifting is a CIRCUIT, which includes both mechanical and electrical components. A valve sticking in a bore is not going to be ameliorated properly through the changing of fluid and electrical component.

seems electrical or the valve body has an issue imo. If we were talking about a 5r110 I wouldn't be asking these questions I know where to look and what to look at. I know nothing about a 42re except what a couple suggestions say on this forum and google search.
does anyone know where to look for a valve body rebuild or a good place to get a reman valve body after reading through a couple dozen forum and an endless amount of information and other problems everything points to a bad vb
Drop pan and see what type of debris is in it before ordering parts. Might give you some insight on what is going on. There is a spring on the front servo that breaks sometimes and that could be a problem also. By dropping the pan you can tell.

I will drop the pan and take a look and find out if I see anything. redwolf I feel pretty confident I will be emailing you to take you up on that offer. I wish I had a lift right now because it's a tight squeeze to be underneath the jeep in stock form.
