Having problems with your 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee ?

How do you drop the valve body on a 2000 grand cherokee laredo? It's a 42re transmisson. I've got it all the way a part and I can't get the shifting linkage apart. I've taken the screws out, I just don't know how to remove the linkage part that's holding the valve body in place.

Hello nukeme,
\015\012There is a pinch bolt holding the attachment to the shaft that needs to be removed, because the shaft IS going to come out with the valve body.

\015\012The solenoid pack isn't hard to replace, but you do have to drop the valve body out. You have to drop the pan, remove the shift linkage, disconnect the electrical connector and drop the valve body. There will be an accumulator on the right side with a couple springs that will fall down with the body. Once it's down you can remove the solenoid from it. You'll need a t-25 torx screwdriver or socket. You'll need an in lb torque wrench to put the valve body back up, torque it to 100 in lbs. Make sure to hold the body up and then tighten the bolts, don't use the bolts to draw it up or you'll warp it.This is two solenoids in one. One solenoid controls the tcc (torque converter clutch), the other side controls the 3-4 shift (overdrive).The t-25 Torx screws hold the filter to the valve body and hold the solenoid to the valve body.There are about 10 or 11 bolts that hold the valve body to the case. They are the 7/16" head bolts. The accumulator is a plastic piston on the right side of the trans, held up by the valve body. It will have one or two springs that will fall out with it, a large and a small. There is no way to get the piston or the springs back in wrong. You'll put them on the valve body when you put it back up and make sure the piston gets in the hole ok without knocking the seals off, then push the valve body the rest of the way up. The best way to clean the valve body is brake cleaner. You can spray anything you like, the electronic parts won't get hurt. Besides the solenoids you'll be replacing there is the governor solenoid and transducer, that's it.
\015\012Number 7 is the c clip that holds the rod to the rooster comb. It's a gold c clip.
\015\012 If you bring the rod out with the valve body it will come all the way out like that. You'll have to drop it down and forward at the same time to get it to clear. It will be a little harder to put back in that way. If you bring it out that way you can take the rod off once it's on the bench, put the rod back in the case, and then put the valve body back in seperate.
