    JK Tech Forum
    I have a 2014 4-door auto JK with 30k miles and having an interesting issue. Occasionally when I drive up one specific hill (my steep driveway) the transmission will get stuck in 2nd for a minute or two afterword. Seems to be worse when it’s hot outside. Never have any other issues. Fluid looks...
  3. Automatic Transmission Mounts

    TJ Tech Forum
    I'm going to replace my transmission mount and have been researching some aftermarket options. A lot of them say that you are going to get bad vibrations when switching to a non rubber mount. Is it really that bad? Should I bite the bullet and just get a stock one from a dealer?
  4. Loss of O/D on my transmission (didn't feel any shifting)

    JK Tech Forum
    Today I was driving down the freeway and as I went to change lanes to pass, I noticed my 2008 Jeep Wrangler JK was running at 5000 RPM. I reached down and pushed the O/D button on and off and nothing changed. as I came up to a stoplight I shifted into park and back to drive. It didn't shift as...
  5. Automatic Transmission Leak

    TJ Tech Forum
    I noticed a puddle of red under my Jeep and searched for the reason why, and settled on the rear transmission seal. So, I've got the skid plate off, transfer case dropped, and it almost seems like there is another leak farther forward as well. Is there a seal up that direction that is a common...
  6. Did I mess up my transmission?

    JL Wrangler Technical Discussion
    So I go offroading a fair bit and a couple of time I have had my cars transfure case in neutral and I went from reverse to park accidentally and heard some grinding noises (transmission is automatic). I have no clue if I messed up my transmission. It still shifts good, but it has a light squeak...

    For a bit of background, I have a manual transmission ‘08 JK with 33” tires, a 3.5” suspension lift, and stock gears. I am looking to upgrade to 35” tires. Over the past two years, I noticed that my Jeep does not perform well on the highway. I was expecting that, but not to this degree. When...

  11. 07 JK 2-dr 6-Speed Issues

    JK Tech Forum
    My Jeep has been doing this for a few weeks and it seems to be getting worse. When I shift through the gears, the tachometer shows an increase in RPM's that don't seem to transfer to the wheels. It feels like the Jeep should be spinning but it's not. It doesn't matter which gear it's in. No...

    Removing the transmission lines on my 32rh today. How much fluid can I expect to loose? A little dribble? Or will it keep pouring out if I don't plug the holes with something?
  14. Transmission Problems?

  15. Can/should you mate a 4.7 with an NSG370?

    JK General Discussion Forum
    I'm not the most familiar with engine swaps but I do have a budget and I think a 4.7 in my 2008 would be pretty cool. I know there would be a lot of rewiring and I'm okay with that, but I was wondering if keeping the NSG370 6 speed manual would be a way to save money. I know its mfg rating is...

    JL Wrangler General Discussion
    I live in South Carolina and Normally off-road up in the mountains and Uwharrie, and I have an older Jeep that's manual, but I'm trying to figure out if I should stay with manual or change to automatic? Which do you think is better for off-roading with where I off-road.

    I have a 1988 YJ Sahara V6 Manual Trans. that I acquired a few months ago. Since then I've been having a heck of a time getting the transmission and clutch reliable.

  18. 2001 TJ Sport with NV3550 Trans Lost Reverse & Fifth

    TJ Tech Forum
    First post bear with me. So I've got an '01 TJ 4.0 Sport with a NV3550 and Dana 44. I seem to have lost fifth and reverse - I can put the shifter in position, but it feels like neutral and nothing is there. No grinding, no noises whatsoever. My thought is that either the shift fork is busted...

  20. Towing in neutral

    TJ Tech Forum
    Hi all, I recently purchased a 04 TJ sport. I think it's been well taken care of and has 48k miles. The trans ( NV3550 I believe ) makes some noise in neutral. I've read that it common and not a problem, but... It gets much louder once the transmission is warm. The previous owners used...
