    I truly appreciate the quick response. My problem is I have the 4.0L and yesterday morning I was t-boned by a lady. I just had my trans rebuilt about 4000 miles ago. But the body damage will probably cost quite a bit to fix. So i found a 1996 jgc with tranny problems, and was hoping I could swap... but I guess not... unless the engine in the 4.0 would swap with the 5.2????

To the best of my knowledge they never put a 44Re behind the 4.0
If you are looking to upgrade, you could use some componets from the 44Re and install them in your 42Re case...The front, overdrive and direct clutch packs, each have one more disc....All other specs appear to be the same.
Note: The PCM for the 4.0 is programmed for the factory installed transmission.
Hope this helps...

    The 4.0 was an engine option in 96, so yes it will swap.
    The electronics for the 4.0 will need to be swapped as well.
    With todays computer controlled systems, emissions control, etc... there are very few engine swaps that are "quick and easy"
    Good luck...hope this helps

I'm still having a problem with my 1981 Lincoln 5.0L engine not starting without giving it a shot of starter fluid. It does start about 4 out of 6 tries. It never starts if it sits for 5-6 days.

Hello Lange Lawerence,

It was a difficult time for AMERICAN cars...

Assuming the engine is in decent shape with EVEN cylinder pressures... (else compression test first)

- The IGNITION Control Module in those cars was not
particularly ROBUST... You might consider keeping a
KNOWN SPARE... in the vehicle (in case you ever plan
on taking a serious drive (ICM))
1981 LINCOLN MARK VI 5 0L 302cid V8 Ignition Control Module ICM RockAuto

More Information for STANDARD MOTOR PRODUCTS LX211

Fresh FUEL (ALWAYS)...

I always recommend checking all your
FIRE & FUEL... You did not say... CARBUETOR
and/or REPLACING might be necessary to assure proper ATOMIZATION of the FUEL entering the cylinders
1981 LINCOLN MARK VI 5 0L 302cid V8 Fuel Injector RockAuto

Make sure your spark is active (simple test light
going around the cylinders)... Timing, new plugs
and FRES FUEL... (timing light... of course)

AFTER that you will need to check your FUEL FLOW
and PRESSURE... (check out cleaning with GUNK
before replacing (I use)):
Amazon com Berryman 0120 12 Chemtool Carburetor Choke and Throttle Body...

Failing all that it is time to find one of those GIANT
SUN engine analyzers...
(car club... perhaps)

Hope this helps

mine did that had to pull the heads have them shaved about 200 new gaskets 45 each and put it back together you dont need new bolts unless they are stretched put flat edge on bolt if all threads touch then bolt is good if any dont touch buy new ones depending on your finances its easiest to buy new ones not a hard job 2 days at most if you have an idea remember thier is no shame in labling everything as you take it off use ziplock bags and masking tape. Hardest bolts to get off are the manifold bolts to the exhaust pipes be carefull they spin easy best to buy 2-3 cans of penitrating fluid and soak them go slow loosening the head bolts to dont want to snap one.

Getting error code P0 740. what does this mean?

In the '96 Factory Service Manual, it says code P0740 is "Torq Conv Clu, No RPM Drop At Lockup" (Relationship between engine speed and vehicle speed indicates no torque converter clutch engagement).

When I lived in a cold climate (MT) had a JGC,V8, with a trailer towing option that didn't shift correctly in cold temps. The problem was corrected with a TSB that bypassed the tranny cooler @ cold temps.

I've seen several cold weather TSBs having to do with Dodge transmissions at the following:

What kind of tranny will work to replace mine?

Yes. They should both be 46RE transmissions and the bolt patterns and the plugs should be the same.

Bought the wrong 700r4?!

I believe the bolt pattern is the same that transmission should bolt up to your v-8 assuming it's a small block, the transmission should work fine, you may need to modify the shifter but everything else should be compatible, if your v-8 is carberated make sure you have the correct throttle link set up because correct tv cable adjustment is critical, the v-6 transmission may have a lighter stack up in the 3-4 drum so dont be to hard on it while in 3rd or 4th.

good luck

Engine revving intermittently- 98 jgc 5.2 v8

none of the above
the problem is a sensor in the transmission changing ratios so run the fault codes and check the problem
suspect that wiring or a TR ( transmission ratio) sensor is going faulty

The only thing that can make the noise is the transmission front pump, if the trans works ok try changing the fluid and filter, it may help or reduce the noise.
