Thanks very much for this. I had fun working through it this weekend.
Looking around I found reference to the pan bolts being tightened to 140 in/lbs, 150 in/lbs and even a quarter grunt
I went for 140 in/lbs and crossed my fingers (no leaks as yet), but if someone had definitive info it would be great to add it here!
my gear changes became inconsistent, rarely going in to first when coming to a stop, after mis-judging the depth of a muddy water hazard. looking at the filter it seems some of the bog ended up in the transmission. i seem to remember a thread about how this can happen, so i'm off to find it!
thanks all for you help as always.
EDIT: mine is a 32rh

|Gorving3||Kind of like bleeding your brakes, just be fast on your feet and be sure the reservoir doesn't run dry. And it definitely would help to have the assistance of another couple of hands.|

|UFOtestpilot||Right, 32rh has adjustable bands 42rle has TCM. Rickow looks to have the 2003, so I think I was confused about the question and which transmission was being referenced. Sorry about any confusion I may have caused.|

|workshop4ever||I am under the impression that the 42rle does not have any bands to adjust. The older jeep auto trans does, but not the 42rle|
|02-01-2014 10:27 AM|
|UFOtestpilot||You can adjust the bands if you need to.|

While you were in there were there any adjustments made to bands, etc? Torque to this number back off this number of turns kind of thing? I've never been in the Jeep tranny but I assume that they have some level of adjustment.

Yep check the ATF with the engine running and the transmission in N for the 32RH or P/N for the 42RLE.
The pump isn't pumping in Park in the 32RH, you wouldn't get an accurate level reading in Park and it would likely read higher than it really is since it isn't pumping ATF out of the sump.
And yep, it always takes me several repeated readings in good light of the dipstick to finally feel comfortable I'm getting a valid reading.

Jerry - your last comment regarding "..32rh that must be checked only in neutral" leads me to ask a dumb question (or 2):
When we check the auto trans fluid level, we must do it with the trans pumping - ie N for the 32rh and P or N for the 32rle?
If the 32rh is checked in P, is this indicated fluid level then lower or higher than actual?
Curious b/c when I check my 32rh, it seems the fluid line isn't always obvious as it's all up-n-down the stick.
As always - thanks for your help.

It's very cheap and worth doing since your in there anyway. You will also need a new magnet.
These trannys (42rle) can be fussy...mine really want's to stay in 1st gear it's first 50 yards when's it's -20 degrees outside.

|Jerry Bransford||It can be checked in Park too with his 42rle transmission.|

|mikemounlio||What would be the proper level test?|
|01-29-2014 01:30 PM|
|Jerry Bransford||That’s impossible to say but possibly. Have you checked its ATF level properly to make sure it is full? If you add ATF, make sure to only use ATF+4.|
|01-29-2014 01:24 PM|
|mikemounlio||Will you notice the tranny running any better? Mine will shift hard sometimes. Im thinking about doing this.|

|UFOtestpilot||I would recommend just draining, replacing the filter and pan, running fluid through it with the line at the radiator disconnected and the vehicle running in neutral. I ran around 4 quarts or so through (while I continually poured) and then shut it down. I reconnected the line and and proceeded to fill it until I had fluid at the proper level. I've done this on both a 32rh and a 42rle.|

|geode||I'm going to resurrect this Lazarus Thread. It is a good one. I'm going to change out my 32RH fluid because it looks like it was changed recently and I have no idea what the PO replaced it with. I bought a new pan with the drain plug from Summitracing to make future maintenance easier. I read this thread and am wondering if a drain and fill wouldn't accomplish the same thing. Japanese manufacturers (at least on my Accord) suggest the drain and fill method and strongly discourages a flush. I realize this isn't an actual flush like a dealer or quick lube would do. I plan on dropping the pan and drain the fluid, change the filter, gasket and install new pan. Refill pan and run the transmission a few miles. Park it then remove drain plug and drain fluid then refill with new fluid. If I did this three times almost all of the fluid should be changed. Any reason why this wouldn't work. I'm also wondering if the tube returning the fluid into the radiator is coming directly from the torque converter or the pan. Thanks.|

|Drock1979||gonna give it a shot|
|02-26-2013 02:26 PM|
|paulsmith||Ok, I'm missing something. Why do you drain the tranny pan and change the filter first? I'd think you'd want to flush everything out, then drop the pan, and change the filter.|

|Kill The Infidel||
Great thread!!! I was having tranny problems, mainly my torque converter. I was already looking to buy a new tranny because I thought it was toast. I seen this thread, gave it a shot, and volla, works like a new tranny again! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

|Boo97wrangler||Ok, so I Whateve my filter today. Followed the same steps as mentioned earlier. went to start flushing the fluid, like mentioned on previous posts, using same steps. Attached hose to radiator started engine, put in neutral, nothing. It barely dripped. Tried going through gears, let it idle to build pressure, nothing! lol. Please help!! Im ready to get back in my jeep!|
