kalamykid :

The first thing I need to ask you is what trans do you have in your jeep? There are two transmissions that could have been in your jeep, the a500 and the a518 "42re and the 46re". The best way to ell the differance is to look on the pasanger side of the trans pan and see if there is a square corner to the front of the pan or is there a round "bubble" on the front corner?

Customer:

ITS A 42RE,

kalamykid :

Will it neutral out when it is time to go to 3rd?

Customer:

trans pan has a bubble on the right front

Customer:

do you have any ideas on what it could be , back 4 month ago it stuck in first gear and i put it to the floor and it findly shifted and worked great until now .. dan

kalamykid :

When it is time for the trans to shift to 3rd gear does it stay in 2nd or does the trans neutral out?

Customer:

if you let off the gas it seems like it goes in to neutraland when you give it gas it goes back to 2and will not try to go in two 3rd

kalamykid :

If the pan has a bubble on the right front of the pan then you do not have a 42re you have a 46re.

kalamykid :

Have you check the fluid level with the trans in neutral?
