3.7l engine. Error codes 0869, 0876, 0932 from diagnostic. Slippage is occurring after crankshaft sensor was replaced. Oil tranny level was slighly high so i drained some. Plan to change filters and fluid.

Expert:  tim's auto repair replied 1 month ago.

tell me,,what gears does it slip in?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Typically 3rd to 4th
Expert:  tim's auto repair replied 1 month ago.

ok

and had no problems at all before you replaced the crank sensor?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Some slight dlippage or jumping forward took place before sensor failed. Jeep ran a bit but would stall.
Expert:  tim's auto repair replied 1 month ago.

when you say it slips in 3rd and 4th..please explain..does it only slip a little or does the engine rev and the gears arent there?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Spitters is a better explanation. Geas grab and shift?
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Gears i mean
Expert:  tim's auto repair replied 1 month ago.

ok

io will give you my thoughts.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Also meant sputters a bit. Had codes reset, so far appears better. Driving home now and will see response after warming up.
Expert:  tim's auto repair replied 1 month ago.

sense the problem began with replacing the crank sensor and you are getting codes for the line pressure sensor ..the first thing you need to do is check the wiring to the sensor,it may have got damaged from the crank sensor repair.

if the wire harness is good,then you may want to replace the line pressure sensor.

do change the filter,a clogged filter could cause this problem..

i will also give you tests/checks for these codes

Sounds good. Fyi...shifting from 2nd tp 3rd low speed causes the shutterimg in drive. High speed has less problems shifting as does keeping it in 2ng gear. Will change fluid and filter saturday. Thanks.
