42re only works for first 5 miles than goes out

Trans shifts strong and fine for about 5 miles than starts acting like a manual with a bad clutch slipping all the time.

Anyone?

Re: 42re only works for first 5 miles than goes out

Always start with a fluid and filter change at least it might buy you some time and you can see whats going on in there. Now the bad news,Ive had 2 of those die at
about 120 to 130,000 miles. I've also seen Lucas Transmission Fix straighten out
some really screwed up trannys.
Hope this helps,
Dave

Re: 42re only works for first 5 miles than goes out

Here some trouble shooting out of the jeep manual:

1)Fluid Level Low. - Add fluid and check for leaks.
2) Fluid Foaming. - Check for high oil level, bad pump gasket or seals, dirt between pump halves and loose pump bolts. Replace pump if necessary.
3. Throttle Linkage Mis-adjusted. - Adjust linkage.
4. Gearshift Linkage Mis-adjusted. -. Adjust linkage.
5. Rear Clutch Worn. - Inspect and replace as needed.
6. Low Hydraulic Pressure Due to Worn Pump, Incorrect Control Pressure Adjustments, Valve Body Warpage or Malfunction, Sticking, Leaking Seal Rings, Clutch Seals Leaking, Servo Leaks, Clogged Filter or Cooler Lines. -. Perform hydraulic and air pressure tests to determine cause.
7. Rear Clutch Malfunction, Leaking, Seals or Worn Plates. - Air pressure check clutch-servo operation and repair as required.
8. Overrunning Clutch Worn, Not Holding (Slips in 1 Only). - Replace Clutch.

Re: 42re only works for first 5 miles than goes out

sounds like you may have a weak epc solenoid. If that doesn't fix it, it will need to be rebuilt.
