What would cause code P1603 to occur on 2005 Jeep Rubicon

I have an 05 6 cylinder automatic TJ. The other morning I was getting trouble codes U0101 and P1603. For a few seconds the Jeep was shaking and for the entire 30min ride it wouldn't shift into the last gear, it would just continue to rev. The next day I drove it and it was fine. I also noticed a slight high pitch whine noise coming from the engine at low speeds. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Engine swap question - 2000 jeep 172k

Check with any local junkyard or dealer ... they know better than anyone what fits what.... Pretty likely it does. It would be wise to check bearings in one you want to buy (before you pay) also, check the top 1/4" of the cylinder bores. There should be very little or no ridge at the top (big ridge = a lot of cylinder wear) If you buy it, check the timing chain for excessive wear and also check "freeze plugs" and replace before installing it. (far easier out of car than in)

Jeep tj carpet

I don't think there is a diagram for this... Really... You can't put together a five or six piece puzzle??? Use the seat bolt holes& stuff as guides. The front piece can only fit there, and then you only have four or five pieces left!!!
