    I have been reading posts in multiple forums and have yet to find this same issue. I have read through the ATS manual. I'm currently checking through the wiring, but thought I'd post this just in case someone has experienced it and can put me out of my misery. Here's where I'm at... I have code...

    So I’m replacing the torque converter on my 95 zj. Someone at my work said he would help me and let me use his tools and lift. He also has an acccount with transtar in Dallas and were trying to order a TC from them. I have a few questions for anyone who has done this before, since I’m pulling...

    The transmission is toast in my 97 Jeep Grand Cherokee and I am having a very hard time finding a transmission. There is one for sale out of a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a 242 transfercase. Would this work?

    Bought a 2001 WJ with no reverse, but drove in forward gears. Removed overdrive assembly, yep, broken snap ring. Reassembled with new snap rings using alignment tool. When I installed the overdrive assemble to the trans, I had to use bolts to pull it in the last ~1 inch. Now no forward or...

    So, after some home repairs on the 42RE on my 2001 Grand Cherokee 4L I6 last year, it finally needed a proper breakdown and repair. On last inspection there were circlip remnants in the pan. Finally tracked down a local transmission specialist, wish I never did though, a two week job turned...

    So the other day I got my engine pretty hot, it reached the last solid white line before the red zone so about 240 degrees, i wasnt towing or anything just got hot in 109 degree weather in traffic. I drove it around some until it got back down to 210, let it idle a bit there then shut it off to...

    My 2003 Jeep WJ Laredo with a 42RE transmission just hit over 200K miles. As far as I know, the transmission has never been serviced. I purchased this Jeep when it was around 128K. When properly measuring the transmission fluid level (level surface, hot, shift all gears, measure in N), it...

    Hi there, I've had this jeep for a while but this is my first post. This jeep is intended to be for camping and outdoors, not even necessarily offroading other than maybe a few gravel trails up in the hills. I have a volt for a DD so it doesn't' exactly boast space. Plus I want to outfit it for...

    I have a 2000 WJ Grand Cherokee with 4WD and a bad transmission, and I have a 2002 2WD WJ Grand Cherokee with a bad motor. Both are 4.0L 6 cylinder models. I know the transmission on the 2WD functions well enough - it has run faithfully but occasionally throws out a trouble code for the...

    Hello everyone. I've been using this website mostly after some Google with diagnostics for my Jeep. I've read up to 10 threads regarding no shift between 3-4 but still some questions are unanswered so here I am, all signed up and hope that I'll get some answers. I'll write up a short version of...

    Hello fellow Jeep Enthusiasts, I have a 1995 Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L l6 with a 42re transmission, I have had this problem since i bought the car almost a year ago and just need it fixed already. If I put it into drive, it will start in 3rd gear, but will not downshift automatically into...

    Hey guys, So I "totaled" my 96 zj a week go. It needs body and front end work that I'll probably work slowly on over the next few months. Anyways, I bought a 95 zj (4.0 42re) with about 150k for $500. Pretty good shape except for the trans. I limped it home, unable to really go over 40 mph...

    Hey guys. I have a 94 grand Cherokee 4x4 going on its 3rd 42re? I bought it used and the first time it went out it dropped out of OD and began its limp mode journey. I could get it to change into all gears accelerating heavily but, as soon as I let off it would drop back into LM. I replaced that...

The leak has not been too bad.. I've just been adding fluid on occasion... sometimes getting too much in and having more come...

    Okay, so this is going to be long, but my 1995 Jeep zj 4.0 with 42re transmission is having an issue. Sometimes I don't have 1st or O/d, it seems to do it when its cold outside in the morning or when the Jeep has not run for a period of time. In order for it to go away I have to drive a little...
