okay so I see the nv4500 is a type of transmission. That's a start.
I'm trying out a new mechanic, my pops has used him this year and has been happy so I thought I'd give him a shot. He mentioned that he has done a few Jeep transmission rebuilds so I can only hope he's good with my Jeep.
Is there anything I should be considering along transmission repair work or replacement? I really need to just get my lazy hands on a Jeep book of some kind and get some basic knowledge drilled in. No one around here thinks a chick should know anything so they aren't apt to share much with me.
So my poor little jeep is a bit of a stranger to me although we are very close and comfortable with each other, lol. I remember that my engine is some sort of boat engine or something along those lines. Its a two word name, if someone said it I would recognize it but I think I'm still hungover and can't recollect much of anything at the moment.
I guess what I'm getting at is feel free to through some bits of pertinent info my way; I don't know enough to even know what sort of questions to ask! But I'd like to feel a bit prepared when the mechanic calls and gives me the diagnostics and suggested work. He won't be looking at it till tomorrow morning though.
I'm a smart one, I saved my engine info in my jeep profile b/c I knew I'd forget! It's a Iron Duke Engine, 2.5 4 cylinder Are there any considerations b/t engine and transmission?
