What is the procedure for changing this sensor.

 

42LE - Automatic Transmission
VALVE BODY - REMOVAL

NOTE:If valve body is being reconditioned or replaced, it is necessary to perform the Quick Learn Procedure.

  1. Disconnect the TRS wiring connector. The solenoid wiring connector can remain attached to the case.
  2. Disconnect the shift cable from the shift lever (at the transaxle).
  3. Move the shift lever clockwise as far as it will go. This should be one position past the L position. Then remove the shift lever.

  1. Remove transaxle pan bolts (Fig. 408).

  1. Remove transaxle oil pan (Fig. 409). When reinstalling oil pan be sure that pan flange is clean and oil free. Apply a 1/8 inch bead of Mopar Silicone Sealer onto oil pan flange before installing.

  1. Remove oil filter from valve body (Fig. 410). It is held in place by two clips.

CAUTION:The 42LE transaxle oil filter is not interchangeable with the 41TE transaxle filter. Installation of a 41TE oil filter in a 42LE may cause transaxle damage.

  1. Remove valve body bolts-to-case (Fig. 411).


  1. Carefully remove valve body assembly from transaxle (Fig. 412). (Fig. 415)


CAUTION:The overdrive and underdrive accumulators and springs may fall out when removing the valve body (Fig. 413) (Fig. 414) (Fig. 415).

SOLENOID/PRESSURE SWITCH ASSY

  1. Remove Solenoid/Pressure Switch Assembly retaining screws from solenoid (Fig. 380).

  1. Remove Solenoid/Pressure Switch Assembly and screen from valve body (Fig. 381).

INSTALLATION

NOTE:If the Solenoid/Pressure Switch assembly is being replaced, the Quick Learn Procedure must be performed.

  1. Install Solenoid/Pressure Switch Assembly and screen to the separator and transfer plates (Fig. 381).

I just have a brief follow up. The underdrive servo and the overdrive servo. Just as you predicted the servos came out with the valvebody. I just need to know if they go back in with the springs toward the trans or the valvebody or up or down. the diagram you sent witrh your answer is not viewable any more.Thanks.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
