"Stock" 32rh transmission flooded can't find breather vent
I bought a used 98 wrangler with 80000 miles and the tranny had quite a few problems, I took it to the local repair shop and had a bench rebuild done it was in and out of their shop for almost a month. After the finished it I didn't have any further problems with it till I went mudding last weekend at which time my tranny filled with water, it wouldn't shift out of first gear and I had to tow it back to the shop. They said the water got in thru the breather vent and it was my fault. I disagree, I was in approx. 20 inch of water and i have a 3in lift and 31, so I don't believe i was near the vent. Can anyone with a simliar tranny tell me where their breather vent is located and if its located in the bell housing/pump how i can vent it high to avoid flooding in the future. Also what are possible side affect of water in my tranny long term?
