  1. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Good Afternoon, I have a 2001 TJ with a 5 speed NV3550 in it. Can anyone tell me what this port is? (over-service vent?) It’s been weeping some transmission fluid since I last serviced. Thanks in advance for any help that can be provided!!
  2. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Planning some work on the 2004 TJ, and recently ordered a Centerforce Clutch Throwout Bearing from Quadratec, and just realized that it is listed to fit Wrangler from 94-03, P/N N1764. Centerforce's website has the N1764 listed to fit a range of models and engines, but under separate listings...
  3. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I have a 87 YJ with the 4.2. When I got it, it had the NV3550 with a NP207. The transmission is totally shot. Beyond rebuilding. I can get a Ax15 relatively cheap. I have seen plenty of posts with swapping in either the AX15 or the NV3550 to the YJ but not going from the NV3550 to the AX15...

    Hi, I own a '04 TJ with a 5spd NV3550 and 116k miles. I noticed after I leave stop after a few minutes of higher-speed driving, then stop at a red light, removing out of current gear is sticky sometimes. And then, sometimes it sticks shifting from 1st to 2nd during "cool down" period. No gear...
  5. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I recently swapped my AX15 out for a remanned NV3550. Been driving it for a couple of days now and kept smelling a little bit oil burning and chalked it up to be oil that had ended up on the exterior of something burning off during the swap. I came to that conclusion because I could see any new...
  6. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I got a 01' 5 speed Cherokee I am in the process of converting into a 4x4. The 2001 Cherokee will have a nv3550 transmission put into it for the conversion. I understand what I need and what parts are compatible for everything but the transfer case. Can I get the transfer case out of any Jeep...
  7. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I got a tough one here. I have a 2001 Jeep Cherokee with a 5 speed transmission in it. 4x2. The transmission makes a whine that sorta sounds like a supercharger in all gears except 4th. The noise is proportional to how much power is going into the transmission. If i'm cruising, nearly nothing...
  8. Engines & Drivetrain
    Hi all. My mechanic attempted to run a repair on my trans which didn't work out. As such he told me that if I bought a rebuild he would install it without a labor charge. I can have a Smart Parts NV3550 delivered, and core returned, for $1195 (plus $300 core fee) and $0 install. One year...
  9. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Here's the really, really basic backstory (and I'm happy to provide more details as required): I've got a 2001 TJ w/the NV3550 transmission paired to our good, old 4.0L I6. My clutch went through the floor, coincidentally right in front of a brake repair shop here in Austin. Because of my lack...
  10. KJ Liberty Forum
    Ok, so I have scoured this site and found some useful information, however, I need to clarify some things. My screech began upon starting up the Jeep to warm it up last Friday. It is very sporadic in it's noise. It will screech constantly at times. Louder when I push in on the clutch and...
  11. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I have a 2004 TJ with the NV3550 5-spd. Does anyone know where to buy replacement drain and fill plugs for this tranny? I am going to change my fluid soon. The drain plug has rust on it and I would like to buy a replacement before I remove it. I've search online and in the forums, and cannot...
  12. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Just put a NV3550 in 1988 YJ (BA10). Reverse switch connectors are different. Cannot use the BA10 connector. Searched for an answer and found zippo. I've found these part numbers 12085485, 15300530, 15530547, 275, 5019910AA on CARQUEST. Rockauto shows a couple as being the connector. HOWEVER...
  13. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Yes I have NV3550 noise, but its not your typical one.... Here are the details... Ok, 5th in my AX-15 went south so I decided to buy a NV3550 with 60k miles on it to replace it with. Added a Hurst short throw shifter and threw away the stock xfer case linkage. I used Redline MT for the...
  14. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    It's a discussion that has haunted the forum forever... but here we are again. Only this time... it's a swap between year models and transmissions. I hope somebody can help shed some light for me... Here is my project: I have a 2004 TJ (originally with a 42rle trans)... and a 2000 TJ (wrecked...
  15. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Yeah like the title says, hi, just finished a NV3550 swap on my '89. I got the transmission complete, aside from the bellhousing bolts and the mount bolts. I'm having a hard time finding what type of bolts those are that are needed, because the engine to transmission mount bolts are the same...
  16. Fabrication Shop
    Just finished the swap yesterday. Went a lot easier than I thought, if you have any questions about it let me know. Vehicle is a 1989 YJ with the 4.2L and TF999 3 speed, NP231 Some things to note that I found out after reading the other NV3550 swap threads: I used nothing from Advanced...
  17. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I've got a noise coming from the tranny (NV3550) that sounds more like a "rattle" or a light "clanking sound" ..... Possibly like the sound of a loose bolt or bracket when vibrating. I'm hoping someone may have a good idea of what the source is. When the rattle appears: usually as I am...
  18. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    UPDATE BELOW 5/16/2017 The last few months I have been in need of a new transmission. Gears were a grindin' and 5th gear was completely shot. It would pop out of gear with almost any power applied to it. A condition that got worse over a period of about 3 months. I searched on here, and not...
  19. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    After getting my Reman NV3550 installed yesterday it did fine at low speeds (20mph) but when I hit about 40 it felt like I had little power and had a harsh vibration that sounded and felt like it was coming from the rear end. After a mile or so the rear U joint in the rear drive shaft snapped. I...
  20. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    First off let me say this isn't a thread about why I am getting rid of the nv3550 or which tranny is better, just looking for some useful information for the swap. I searched but there is very little for this particular swap, find a lot about the aw4 but not the 32rh. So I plan on swapping out...
