I2001 Dodge Ram 1500
I had this problem a few months back, took it to a Mechanic, charged me 350
dollars and 17 dollars for a sensor. It was better but not right. It did
it again, My friend told me about your video. I bought the two parts from
Auto Zone, 197 dollars plus oil, gasket and filter.
It took me about what you said to do the work. Set up, drain, gasket and
filter another hour. I ran it 3 miles with no problem. I drove it home,
23 miles and it shifts like a charm.
I don't know what the guy I took it to put it, but it wasn't these two
parts., I will never use him again. Thank you for your time it took to
make the video and your knowledge you shared.

I bought this kit from Cascade and used this video as a reference.. Great
Video, Very Helpful. The only thing missing, which became a major headache
for me, was how to get the Park Rod to release from the Transmission, when
the Trans. is still in the Vehicle.

After many attempts to "ease the park rod out", with Zero Success, I
discovered the following steps were required to release the park rod so it
could be "Eased out"...
1. Make sure the Vehicle is chocked to keep it from rolling.
2. Put the Transmission in Neutral.
3. When you are ready to remove the Valve Body, Jack Up One of the Rear
Wheels, so the tire can be turned/rolled.
4. Slowly turn the tire, while you are attempting to "Ease" the Valve
Body(VB) toward the front of the Transmission, as demonstrated in the
video. (Having a Friend turn the tire will make this much easier.)

It is my understanding that the park rod will be prevented from removal
and/or install by the Transmissions internal Park Mechanism. Turning the
tire apparently rotates a internal component and will release the rod, so
it can be easily removed...
(Unfortunately, I did not know this procedure when I removed my VB and it
was nearly impossible to remove, until it suddenly popped out of park and
the truck moved... It went back in like butter, using this technique.) I
hope this helps...

2006 Jeep Liberty . The transmission doesn't always shift at normal RPM.
It occas feels like it is slipping in reverse but never in a forward gear.
Trans sounds fine.
The engine will sometimes rev to >5 rpm before it shifts. Other times you
have to let off the gas to make it shift. The OD button is not the issue.
? transducer/gov pressure solenoid or possibly a control module issue.
Any suggestions.

Nice video. It is so helpful for people that fix there own cars to have
someone walk through it step by step so you know what to expect and pick up
on some tips.
Thank you.

What are the symptoms of when those parts are not working properly? I have
a 95 jeep grand Cherokee and I believe it has a 42re.

The transmission seems to have less engagement. I would not say it slips.
But it feels as if it is pumping fluid but not fully engaged. Also I notice
sometimes on an incline and it is pulling the same gear up the grade it
fades in and out like a pressure loss or low fluid. I want to add that I
feel that it is something defective because sometimes it shifts absolutely
flawless and has no power loss and the jeep feels alive as it was new.

Any thoughts?

hello there,
very nice video and very helpfull.
I have a question for you.
I livein Greece and I own a jeep grand cherokee 4.0l with a 42RE
the problem is that when i put it in "D", it starts in third gear. When I
put it in "1" it starts with the second gear. It doesn't upshift or
downshift. I do have reverse, Neutral and park.
I thought my problem was the solenoids and valves, so I changed all of
them. (It cost me a fortune here in Greece). Finaly I didn;t fix my
problem. It keeps as it is.
Now I think it might be the output speed sensor and I'm planning to change
it, since I have a 46RE transmission on another car and the speed sensor is
the same.
Do you think that this might be the problem or it is the transmission
control module problem?

another think I need to say is that I did the trick with the key. I turned
it on and off three times and the "OD" light flashed five times and then
five times again. that give's us the number "55", which, according to the
transmission manual, it means "end of code transmission"
Unfortunately I can't find anyone with a DRB II scanner to plug and see if
there are any fault codes.

please excuse my bad english and my big message. Just try to give you as
much details as I can.
Thanks in advance.
