Just finished changing the transmission filters, and the sensor that might have gone. I've gotta pick up some ATF +4 and then I'll know if the transmission is still good.

Put on a Bush guard that i picked up for a new jeep owner on here. Had to wait 8 months for the mounting brackets from the manufacturer in the states.

Well, bad news, it's still not working right, which means something internal went. :(

That sucks! Post some details on the tranny.

Ever since Barbie got a battery powered ride back in the 80's, you Heep owners have so many crossover & swap options that I've lost count...

I have a few local connections that might be able to help you out; though NSJC will likely be better as mine are salvage yards...at a discount.

It's a 545rfe (same as 45rfe).

I was getting code P0841, which from what I read could be either a line pressure sensor, or a solenoid pack in the trans. I replaced the sensor, and that didn't do it. I'm also now getting codes P0870 and P0871, and now when I put it in reverse, I have no reverse lights. The fluid was pretty loaded up with clutch material too.

I probably won't be able to do anything until income tax time, but thankfully I can use one of the inlaws cars.

It a 2002, and yep, a V8. I don't think I'll be able to get it fixed until income tax time though. :(

I've got vehicles, parts, ideas, garage and tools. But too many hobbies! I was bitchin' earlier tonight that my SAR mapping is taking up too much time. 1-2 hrs a day for the last month!

Maybe I will take some trucks and parts over to Clarence's and have him install them. I actually thought of this a few days ago............ They might be quick jobs he might enjoy.............

      Worked at the West Jeddore search 5 pm till midnight Monday night.  Traffic control and a 3km bushwhack.
      Working the search Tuesday 10 pm till daylight Wednesday morning.  Transportation with the F250.  Using bright flashy lights when loading and unloading folks on the roadside.  Going to recline the seat and get a bit of shut eye for a couple minutes....
