The Idiots' Garage: Jeep Transmission Part 1
Craig and Danny attempt to install a new governor pressure sensor into a
1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. Hilarity ensues as the due ponder why
transmission fluid looks like something out of a slasher film, whether Lee
Iaccoca is still dead, and why you can never trust the guy behind the parts
counter at the Chrysler dealership.
200-R4 Governor and accumulator spring
The project continues to refine so to speak the overdrive 200-R4
transmission retrofitted to a 1972 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser. Cleanliness
and patience, and being flexible too when working in cramped conditions
helps with these sort of projects. The softer shift (will still be more
firm then stock, as there is a shift kit in this transmission) will not be
detrimental to the 2nd band as it is a Kevlar one, and there is a large oil
cooler fitted to the transmission lines as well. The dust cover for the
torque converter will finally be fitted too when all is said and done.

ISSUE WAS RESOLVED!!
I later gave up on trying to fix this dreaded P0700 error code and took it
into the shop.
they said the transmission was fine, but it was low on ATF+4 so we filled
it up, cleared the codes and drove halfway around the block for the code to
they later read all the codes and the one that stood out the most was
P1758: Transmission Relay output ALWAYS OFF
other transmission codes were
P0750: low rev solenoid Circuit
P1734: 2C pressure switch
P1781: Overdrive Pressure Switch
P1733: 4C pressure Switch
P1732: Underdrive Pressure switch
the relay problem signified an electrical issue, so they charged me $90 to
check all the cables and make sure power was getting down to the
tramsmission. Power was NOT gettting to the transmission so they checked
the Relay, The Relay was ok, but the TCM (Transmission Control Module -
computer) was not providing power to the Relay. so they instructed me to
just buy a new TCM
I went to this site:
and purchased a new TCM. got it in the mail today 11/11/2013 and BAM!
MY JEEP RUNS LIKE NEW, now that it has a brand new solenoid pack and a new
TCM all the Transmission codes are cleared!
