Author antonisxj (19 days)
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.

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.

I maybe on the wrong track with the Gov/pressure solenoid but if you have
time could you comment on these symptoms? I have a 2001 Dodge ram 2500,
cummins 24v engine 2wd w/110,000 miles on it. The shifting seems a bit
erratic esp. from 1st to second gear. The real problem I'm concerned with
is with towing my 8500 lb 5th wheel trailer. On flat ground everything
seems fine but if I happen to have to start on a hill - even a minor one I
have nearly zero power. (first time it happened I thought the trailer
brakes were locked.) After the initial hesitation the rpms build up and off
I go but it really gives a guy a sinking feeling when the cars are lined up
behind you and you can't even pull off the line for 10-20 seconds. No
codes are being set, I've done all the normal maintenance (fuel filters
etc) . A friend of mine who is a certified mopar/tranny specialist told me
that there were issues at one time with the torque converters (something
about too low of stall speed or something like that.) The transmission was
rebuilt prior to me buying the truck and supposedly an upgraded TC was
installed. Anyway, as I said if you have any thoughts and time to respond I
would appreciate it. Thanks. BTW: I live in Colorado at 8500' and most
everything is still up hill from my house!

Is this the same as the 1996 dodge ram 1500 torque converter solenoid thats
what code says to replace it we did a filter, gasket, fluid change, and the
other solid but not torque converter solenoid ran car md afterwards when
this did not fix

Hi, maybe you can solve my problem, I have a 03' dodge Dakota " non 4 x
4 " automatic transmission " 3.9 motor. on this transmission just the other
day I just started the vehicle and just driving down the street and just
going up a very small hill and heard a pop noise, stopped the vehicle and
then started to go again, would not move in any of the forward gears. only
moves in reverse, so I had to drive in reverse back to my parking area. I
am trying to figure it out because it only has just over 100,000 on it, I
never had a problem with it until now. never leaked trany oil, no slipping
no rough shifting, very smooth trany. you could hardly feel it shifting and
then this happens. any possibilities, thanks jeff

My engine light on my 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 (5.2- 4X4 ) came on and I checked
the code (P1740) I looked it up and it says "TCC or OD Solenoid
Performance" My Tachometer needle jumps and I'm eating more gas than
usual. What do I need to change in the trany?

Author Bloto (2 months)
Very Informative, Thank you very much. Just got done doing this work today
after ordering parts online. Your information here saved me lots of money
and more importantly time and backache by describing the exact size of the
nuts and torques that way I could grab every tool i needed before sliding
under the truck rather then getting up and down 15 times to get the right
sizes and tools. Much appreciated and again Thank you!!! (also fixed the
issue i was having, truck was reving but not shifting properly and 3rd gear
was all but useless, at high speeds would try to speed up and truck would
go to 3rd only to switch to 2nd and redline in acouple seconds. All seems
to be operating properly now 'knock on wood' and would not shift out of any
gear unless at or above 3.5k rpms, was rather annoying and gas consuming,)

can the solenoids be cleaned and reused? my over drive will only engage
when the temp is cool, once everything heats up it will not shift into over

Author CascadeTransParts (9 months)
In your situation the codes tell us more than likely there is an
electrical fault , but rarely do we have a noise related to such a problem.
It may be worth dropping the pan , and take a look for anything obvious.

Author CascadeTransParts (8 months)
typically a code will be triggered when a problem is an electrical item ,
but not always. They can tend to have a mind of their own. No code can also
lean us toward a mechnical issue as well. Some best options may be to
thoroughly check everything over. Drop the pan , and seek anything visible
, etc...
