99-04 Jeep Grand Cherokee: how to replace Transmission Solenoid Pack on a 45RFE transmission
this video will show you how to replace the transmission solenoid pack.
this can fix issues such as your car being stuck in 2nd gear "limp in mode"
I was getting a P0700 code
when I read it with a code reader I got..
which are all transmission solenoid error codes so I thought for sure this
pack needed to be replaced.. unfortunately thid didn't work for me bu it
might work for you .
make sure you do your research before performing this costly repair
BEFORE REPLACE SOLENOID PACK TRY REPLACING THESE (buy 2)

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!

How to adjust bands and change automatic transmission fluid
This is a demonstration of how I tightened the bands of my automatic
transmission and changed the transmission fluid and filter. The vehicle is
a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4X4 with a 46RE transmission. This repair was done
after a transfer case repair which required removal of the propeller
shafts. With the front shaft out of the way, access to the front band
adjustment screw was better than normal. It is possible to do this with the
shaft in place, but access for demonstration is not as good. For details of
how the propeller shaft is removed, see my other videos on repairing a
Dodge transfer case oil leak.
Note that the details of how this is done, especially the torque settings
and the number of rotations backward after ideal torque, are very specific
to the 46RE transmission. Be sure the locknut is backed off enough that it
doesn't bottom out when the adjustment screw is tightened. Before ever
doing this type of procedure yourself, you should consult the dealers
repair manual and verify the specific procedure in your car.

Monster Transmission Testing Process - The Monster Way
Monster Transmission tests every transmission for your piece of mind.
We run several test vehicles to test our transmissions. Under actual life
driving conditions we are able to accurately monitor line pressure,
temperature, shift points and shift firmness. We use various gauges to
really get a good look and idea to see whats going on inside of the
For our higher performance applications Monster Transmission is the only
transmission company in the world that tests their cars on a chassis Dyno. This allows us to
test our transmissions at speeds that we would not be able to run on the
As you can see we have a very thorough and lengthy process for building a
Monster Transmission. A transmission is a vital part of your drivetrain so
we have many checks and balances in place to make sure we live up to our
High Quality claim. We want to help protect your investment and provide you
with a transmission that shifts better, and lasts longer!
We know it isn't the easiest way, but it's the Monster way!

CVT Transmission Pressure Tests

The procedures presented here are specific to the Jatco Nissan Sentra CVT
transmission. However, these procedures can be effected on any CVT, with
the difference being the pressure ports change. Any service manual, will
show you the proper ports for the CVT you're working on.
Your first tool of choice, is a high pressure gauge, or high pressure
electronic transducer. You can also use an oscilloscope, or even better, a
graphing multi meter to record the pressure waveforms. Finally, we'll also
present a little known device, but with great usefulness. It is called, a
duty cycle controller circuit. These duty cycle circuits are now sold at
many electronic houses, and can be used to control any electrical solenoid.
Most, but not all of them, have variable voltage settings. In our case,
we'll use 12 volts.
Assuming you'll be using a pressure gauge, use the diagrams seen here, to
connect the gauge. Start the engine, and raise the vehicle up in the air,
using a shop lift. If not using a lift, do not go under the car with the
engine on. Remember that each time we change to a different pressure port,
we have to turn the engine off, since the ports are ... Get the whole story

1998 Dodge Ram 46RE Teardown and Rebuild Part 1
Here's a clip of the teardown to bare bones due to a failed torque
converter. This is the beginning of a complete teardown and rebuild
unfortunatly. Almost all of the parts are flawless. There's no wear,
scarring, pitting or other damage to either the hard parts(gears, shafts,
drums, planetary gears, ect.) or soft parts(Friction plates, bands, seals,
ect.). For fun and added insurance I'll install a complete seal kit. The
things I need to replace are, the torque converter, a scared reverse clutch
drum, pump gears, a few bearings . I have to also replace the overdrive
piston retainer, but other than that, everything else is in exellent shape.
