|gavinboomer93||I also have a 98 tj sport auto. 4" lift on 33's. Usually have no problems running through about 3ft of water, then about two weeks ago I stuck in about two. Just got caked up. Definitely don't want to let her shit there for long. She was down for about 5 minutes til the wench was set. But once I got off the trail it wouldn't come out of first for about 1.5 miles. Then was in second for about two day before I went and had it flushed with new filter and gasket. And after still took about another day before she ran right for me. Been stickin to the rocks lately. Thought I was invincible with front and rear lockers. Not in the water.|

|SoCal-Jeeper||Is the vent something that only automatic transmissions have? In my first jeep (manual transmission), armed solely with ignorance, I ran through lots of water and ended up drowning the engine even, but had no issues with the transmission.|

Pull it off, and put a rubber hose over the knob, run into the engine bay.

|Yoshiltz||I suppose it would be "possible" to do it in the vehicle but you have to seperate it from the engine so you can get to the cover. Might as well pull it and make it easy on yourself.|

|98 tj sport||Can it be done with the trans still under the jeep or would I have to pull it|
|07-11-2012 06:21 AM|
|Yoshiltz||The vent to the 32rh can be done without welding. Its actually a bad idea to weld to the pump cover anyways because it can warp easily. I threaded mine and installed a plug then drilled and taped a hole in the top of the case for a barb fitting which I attached my vent to and ran it up the dip stick. Not all that hard but definitely time consuming. I'd rather be pulling the trans for that than for a rebuild though.|

|john sherry||I have a 97TJ,have forded creeks up to headlight level,yes my breathers are extended,only limiting factor was factory airbox,watermark was at the bottom of the trumpet.|
|07-10-2012 06:37 PM|
|98 tj sport||Yea I didn't think about that but that's what wf is for so when I have brainfarts someone is there to correct me thanks jerry guess ill just have to try and find someone to weld it so I can tap it and get me a vent hose on there before I mess something up|

|Jerry Bransford||What if the JB Weld doesn't stay in place and bits and pieces fall inside the transmission? I like and use JB Weld but that's not where I would use it.|
|07-10-2012 06:27 PM|
|98 tj sport||Dangit ok, o do u think I could use something like jb weld to seal the hole and just drill and tap that cuz id know how to weld, I'm trying to learn but its kinda a slow process messing around with a welder with no one to really show you lol so I def don't wanna go welding on my transmission|

A lot of this depends on the year TJ you have and the main limiting factor is with TJs old enough to use the AX-5, AX-15, or 32RH transmissions, all of those have vent openings on the transmissions themselves... so if you get into water deep enough to cover the transmissions, and with the 30RH or 32RH even lower than that, water can make its way into the transmission via their vent tubes.
It wasn't until later when he NV3550, NGS370, and 42RLE transmissions started being used when they added remote-opening rubber vent hoses for them that keep the water out.
Not to mention you have to verify the integrity of the remote vent hoses where they are attached to the axles and transfer case for all model year TJs. If those hoses are not securely attached, you can end up with water in the axles and/or transfer case.
To me, it's best to simply avoid deep water and not drive into deep water unless you absolutely have to. It's just not worth the risk.
