    Hey there folks I’m sad to say my 42rle in my 2004 TJ has seen some better days, last week it left me in limp mode about 2hrs from home. I’m getting a few different codes for 3rd gear ratio and 4 gear ratio and After doing some reading on various forums and Facebook group I believe a new...

    So I just got most of the way through replacing my auto transmission on my 08, with a re-manufactured unit. Still have a few more things to complete, but I am stuck now trying to figure out how to complete a TCM Quick learn procedure on the transmission. Sounds like I would either need to...

    I have a 2004 Wrangler 4.0 with the 42RLE that is slipping. The trans seems to be slipping into neutral on its own and kicked the p0700 code at me. When I was merging onto the highway, the trans clunked into 1st and 2nd, then slipped into neutral as my foot came off the gas. When I got to...

    I have an 08 jku with the 42rle 4 speed. Put the jeep in gear and as soon as it tries to shift it goes into neutral and doesn’t come out unless you restart. Has no reverse either. Transmission was rebuilt 12k ago for same thing. So I’m thinking the guy who rebuilt it never actually fixed the...

    First, pretty sure I don't have SKIM as my only key is a copy and is actually a key from a dodge ram. Plus, gonna try to wing it with my original PCM (don't care about check engine light, it's already been on for 5 years). My 42rle is toast and I've wanted to swap to the AX15 for a while now...

    Hi Guys, back again.... A while back, my 2010 JKU started making a loud 'plink' sound (not sure how to describe - cross between a clunk and a taught wire being twanged) when shifting between Reverse and Drive. It also does it when coming to a stop, or taking off form a stop. Living on my own...

    My 05 wrangler with the 4.0 and 42rle is stuck in limp mode. Over the last eight months I've been dealing with this issue I have replaced every sensor on the jeep, brand new exhaust system including all new cats and cat-back. I originally thought it was a ecm issue so I sent it out to a company...

    Anyone added a transmission temp sender to their 42RLE pan by having a bung welded in? I want to use it as a drain plug as well. I wanted to know where the best place on the pan is (photos would be appreciated) where there wont be any issues with the temp sending unit protruding (inside the...

    Been on this forum too many times to count trying to find some answer to my transmission woes on the TJ. I've learned something every time and these posts have been invaluable to me. So hopefully I can be a help to all you other jeepers out there. This has been a 2+ year ordeal that had...

    SOOOO...here is the deal, I have decided I want to swap my automatic transmission out for a manual transmission. I have always wanted a manual. It makes me feel like I am more connected as a driver on the road and on the trail. I have decided that I would swap out my 42RLE for a NSG370. before...

    I have a 03 sport with a 42rle transmission. Yesterday was the first cold snow day we had and I was out checking stock tanks. We had about six inches of very heavy snow but the jeep was taking it. I got out to check my third tank when I noticed a trail of transmission fluid behind me. I thought...

    The LJ drives normal and I do not notice abnormal anything regarding the shifting sequences on surface street or highway. I have yet to disengage O/D as a test. So far I checked the trans fluid level, color, and smell. All seem ops normal. The CEL does not occur until after about 20-60 miles...

    So here's the deal guys. New to the forum but not new to jeeps. I recently purchased a 2010 Jeep JK 4 Door with Rubicon package. It has had a lot of nice work done to include the RippMods Gen 2 Stage 2 Kit and RippMods Long Tube Headers. Long story short guess what it didn't have: A GOOD...

While it was out I noticed 2 of the 4 pins I the transmission range sensor had fallen out and I had to order a new one. Got the now one today and installed it. The led display under the gauges now displays the...

    I have got some serious problems going on with my 42RLE and it has been determined that a rebuild is necessary. :surrender: We all know how expensive this can be. Today, as an alternative, I was looking for quotes on a new one and I stumbled upon an eBay listing for one. Only $650 without...

    Guys, finally my stock tranny gave way in her youth days! She could only make it to KM 86k!!! Now I started searching for performance tranny. The only one which keeps popping up on my search is 42RLE ATS. Before I get it installed, can any veteran share any information or experience about...
