All Transmissions Include:
I recently purchased a 2007 Jeep Wrangler with an automatic transmission. I've always wished I had a manual transmission, but this particular Jeep has a new automatic transmission and a different name than the one I had before. This Jeep had no problems shifting at all, but the shifts were really erratic. I began having problems with the shifts after only a few thousand miles, but the Jeep reacted to my attention immediately.
There are a number of Jeep models with automatic transmissions. Some are manual, while others are automatic. While some may cost less than $100 to repair, others may cost thousands of dollars. To avoid this, it's important to compare different models side by side. If you're planning on purchasing a Jeep, make sure that you know about the various types of transmissions available.

The most common type of automatic transmission in a Jeep is ATF+4. This is the highest quality of transmission fluid available. This is important for the transfer case. While some manufacturers recommend changing ATF after a certain mileage, many people do not change it often enough. Changing the ATF is recommended for all models, but Jeep automatic transmissions use ATF+4 only. Fortunately, any good quality ATF is suitable for the transfer case.
Most transmissions have a TV cable that can become out of adjustment. While it can be used if the TV cable is properly adjusted, it can cause soft shifts and can damage the transmission. If the fluid is brown in color or smells bad, the problem could be the TV cable. The fluid should be red, as this indicates that it has little to no wear. There are several causes of this issue, but it is important to note that the best way to diagnose a transmission problem is to consult a service manual or a professional.
A few problems can occur with transmissions. The most common problem is the TV cable adjustment. If the TV cable is out of adjustment, the transmission will still work, but will shift softly. A low pressure in the transfer case can lead to glazing of band or clutch material, which can damage the transmission. If you notice brown fluid in the transmission, it is the result of the suspended friction material. A red or light red fluid is good for the transfer case.
The TV cable is the biggest problem with transmissions. It can be out of adjustment to a large extent, but it will still function. The cable is the most important part of a transmission, and the most commonly replaced part is the transmission. A cable is the most likely component to be broken in a Jeep. Similarly, a TV cable can cause soft shifts. The TV cable can also cause soft shifts if it is out of adjustment.
While you're cleaning the transmission valve body, be sure to check the TV cable adjustment. The cable can be out of adjustment, but it will still function. If it is out of alignment, it will not shift smoothly. When you notice this, you need to replace it with a new one. Then, you should clean the filter in the same way. If the filter is out of alignment, the transmission will not work properly.
