most right-ups i've read say the pressure sensor is held in place with a clip, you have to drop the the thing its plugged into and pull the clip out. there's a good youtube video of someone doing this repair.

I have seen that also on youtube, but on mine there is no clip, the metal plate as a groove in it that slides on the pressure sensor outside of the governor body and grabs the side of the sensor.

gove pressure sensor is different for the 99-00 vs the later one. The other three servos look the same but also have different part numbers. Wiring harness doesn't match either.

I need someone to double check me on these parts. While $100 won't break the bank, it is a substantial sum right now.

I'm a intruder here (I'm a TJ Rubi owner) and my wife's '04 Laredo with 150K on it just popped the P1762 and P1763 codes. I've looked around pretty thoroughly and this thread seems to be just about my best bet. The Ebay seller has no items in his store, at this time. I found these parts on http://www.transmissionpartsusa.com/. I changed out the TPS last year and understand that it can already be bad but, a bad TPS will not cause both of the codes, as I understand it.

I can wrench on most Jeep projects and am confident replacing these two parts. Our money is tight because we are trying to get her to Houston, TX for some specialized cancer care. Her WJ will not be our mode of transportation but, it's our mainstay for the 200 mile round trip to our local doctor visits, due to it's 21-22 mpg.

Any help would be deeply appreciated.

Thanks,

Reed

I highly recommend you buy the solenoid from doghouse diesel. That's where I got mine after the one on ebay pooped the bed after 3 weeks. The one I got is a borg warner, and they claimed its better than the dodge solenoid since its bigger and let a bigger amount of fluid through. I tried it and it really works, solved all my problems. Send them an email.

Just an added heads up for those finding this thread using the search feature, the 99-00 will use different part numbers than 01-04. The bracket with the 5 bolts through it in those pictures will be different from 99-00 also. All can be swapped along with the other two solonoids AND the transmission wire harness, to make an 04 work in a 99.

You guys/gals are really great over here! I am waiting on an email back from doghouse diesel, it was to late to call them tonight. Off topic, I realize but, I am trying to prep her WJ for the eventual arrival of the parts. I have done several searches but, can't find an answer on what to do with the exhaust that is blocking the passenger side rear corner pan bolt. I've soaked the hanger fasteners and the bolts at the exhaust manifold and I will do that daily (much better access than a TJ and I am grateful) but, do you have any "work arounds"? If, someone has a link to this or suggestions, I would be very grateful.

I apologize in advance if, I have offended the WJ crowd.

Thanks,

Reed

Edit......disregard. BFHs and PRY BARs are universal tools.

Just a note concerning Doghouse Diesel. I emailed David, who is listed to contact for OEM Dodge, Chrysler and Jeep Parts and Accessories. I was just wanting verification that the parts would work for my application, no response. I called Rich, the owner, and left my name and number as the answering system required. No return calls after 3 attempts. I emailed Rich without a response. I ordered using Pay Pal thinking that I could put my questions in the Pay Pal remarks section and tell them that I did not want the parts if, they didn't work for me. After I signed in to Pay Pal, the screen went straight to a "thank you for your order" page with no remarks section. Not the best customer service that I have seen.

For the exhaust, I drop out the bracket and bushings assembly then use a swivel on an extension to get that bolt out.
I will have to look up the place I ordered my parts from, but I put a complete set of servos/sensors in our 99 for under 100 bucks. It really only needed the gov pressure sensor and gov pressure solenoid, but I did them all just to be on the preventative side of things.

You definitely got a deal! The sensor and solenoid was $139.95 shipped from Doghouse! I knew the sensor was over priced but, I felt that $65 for the beefed up solenoid was worth it if, it works.

I'd love to see a write up on the servos. If, it's as good as fireman33's write up, I'd tackle it. This was the first time I've tackled anything involving a tranny besides partial fluid and filter replacements. Definitely as messy as a rear main seal and that's after having the pan pulled for several days. Parts will be in Tuesday and outside seeing if, they fit, I'm basically done. I took the opportunity to change out all her fluids. 150K on her '04 and the diff oil, and the ATF in her 242 looked like it was changed last week.

As finicky as the PCM's in these things are, I don't know what doghouse is offering for an upgrade option, but I'd be hinkey about putting anything other than OEM part numbers in there. If you use theirs and still get the tranny temp light and check engine light, get it out. I know guys have a lot of issues with 2-3 shifting and ptressure sensor codes, but I'm not so sure it's always referring to a bad sensor. Just possibly low pressure due to needing a filter change. I bought my jeep with 132,000 on it. Around 140-150,000 it did the "shift hunting" so I changed the filter and it went away. It had started in again before 245,000 when my engine puked. I swapped in my '04 engine and trans as a unit with about 87,000 on them. I installed my 99 solonoids and pres. sensor with a new filter and got the dash lights and limp mode. Dropped the pan again and swapped the wire harness and dash lights and limp mode went away. Everything good, wioth excellent shifting. Tells me 99 pressure sensor was still good. 30,000 miles later, I am getting the 2-3 shift hunting again, but I'm also due for a filter again, on the tranny that now has around 127,000 or better miles. With that experience, if it still wants to hunt, I would probably change out my original, 99 TPS and see if that helps before I dig into the pan again.

I certainly will follow your advice if, I have issues.

This is what Doghouse carries.

Quote:
Borg Warner Governor Solenoid for 42-48 RE Transmissions
Heavy Duty solenoid replaces the OEM solenoid that is the most common cause of incorrect shifting in the Dodge RE series transmission.

This solenoid is a DIRECT REPLACEMENT for the OEM solenoid and DOES NOT require any adapters or conversion kits to be used.



Quote:
BW Solenoid vs OEM Solenoid

This solenoid will not flood out at increased line pressures and can be used in stock, modified or performance transmissions.

It delivers the performance of much more expensive aftermarket conversion kits, without the cost of extra parts and provides improved reliability over the OEM piece.

The extra size of this solenoids provides more magnet force, more spool valve force, 15% greater flow and provides a much wider margin of STABLE pressure to ensure correct ****ing and transmission operation.

We recommend that you replace the Governor Pressure Sensor at the same time, as these two parts work in conjunction to ensure correct transmission operation.

Thanks for posting that, I'll keep it in mind. I plan on beefing the 42re later when I get my 4.0 stroker built anyway.
