Can you adjust tthe bands on a 2004 jeep liberty transmission 42 RLE automatic


why would you think it has bands?
old cars, &relics,. had all bands, and the maker got rid of them 1 by
1 , down to a low band (most 1 band cars now , have auto adjusters)

they did this to make tranny more narrow, and to make them stronger
to get rid of having to muck with them over and over, service steps just not really needed. (a top goal , now and by EPA) no muck no leaking to ground water, bla bla bla./
the 30/32RH had bands,

my guess is you are reading books for old cars and thinking this applies to now.???
the 42RLE has clutch packs, that are behind a PISTON that
is 100% auto adjustable.

why not post symptoms, theses transmissions are complex
and is shifted by and electronic brain
did you scan the PCM to see if there are TRANNY DTC errors yet.
that be first after checking fuses.

I have a 2001 Ford escape xls 4x4 2.0 4cylinder and when driving down interstate at 75 mph in 5th gear my rpms are running at 3500. Is this normal or what would be causing this? It sounds like it needs a...


That is a typical RPM at that speed for most 6-speed 4 cylinder engines. The reason for this is that they have a much lower power output at lower RPMs (due to lack of torque), and the engineers want for you to have SOME acceleration to get up little hills.

Transmission


did the trans come with the proper fluid(recommended by Chrysler) and level. was the whole system flushed? Reused sensors could be an issue if one or more is faulty.

Manually shift thru all gears up & down the scale. Try adding Motorcraft Additive Friction Modifier, available from Ford parts dept. This REALLY STINKS!!! Don't get any on you. Pour into trans fluid. Drive a few miles shifting manually thruthe gears, then do a normal start stop drive several times. This will luburcate trans, normally used for differential but has worked in automatic transmissions of all makes for years. Otherwise mechanical problem for transmission repair facility.

My 1999 Audi A4 has a hard time accerlating on inclines. The tach is moving at a high rpm but the car is not accelerating like it shoul.


Hi, if this is a auto built before 2004, audi used a 5 plate clutch which is renowned for going wrong , check fluid level in transmission first. good luck.

First off i have a 1990 rs v6 camaro tuneport.ill begain with how it all started, i ran the battery down, then for some reason i had to replace a jumper in the security system, and it all went down hill...


try disconnecting the battery for 5 minutes or so, press the brake pedal with the battery disconnected. after 5 minutes reconnect the battery and start the car, DO NOT TOUCH THE THROTTLE/ gas pedal for about 5 minutes. perhaps this will recalibrate the computer. good luck, hope this helps

Hvac fan only works in high speed 2004 dodge dakota


This is definitely the Blower Motor Resistor located near the Blower Motor. It is defined with 3-4 wires going into it. It is easy to remove and replace. Purchase the part at the auto parts store versus at the dealer to save you a lot of money.
