Question about 1998 Jeep Wrangler

2 Answers

When I start my Jeep, there is a grinding noise. My boyfriend listened to it with a scope of some sort and said its between the torque converter and the transmision. We drained the trans fluid, not burned but starting and found large metal shavings. He thinks it the torque converter... even though it was replaced 2 yrs. ago with a fairly cheap one and the trans was rebuilt. What do you think?

Its normal to find some metal shavings in transmission fluid, but when you say large chunks, that would worry me. It could just be the started on the flywheel causing your "grinding" sound.. might want to check to make sure the started is tight and inspect the flywheel teethe. most transmissions have an inspection plate to do so.

    chances are that the grinding sound you are hearing is the starter bendix not kicking out as quick as it should.

I think the tranny needs some work,large shavings are not a good sign.

My Jeep has a knocking noise when revs are between 1-2000rpm but then is fine and runs perfect from their, would this be a rod or valve?


to be honest i would need to hear the noise as its so difficult to diagnose without a listen ,could be anything from piston slap to a torque converter so ask a local mechanic to have a look for you and see what he/she says

1998 jeep grand cherokee 4x4. have the p0740 code. have to start from neutral, then shifts faily well. May start fluttering and making noise, have to put back to N, then to D and once again will shift. ...


P0740 JEEP - Torque Converter Clutch Circuit
Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Transmission shift shock
- Vehicle may not shift into the highest gear

Possible causes
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Faulty torque converter clutch solenoid valve
- Torque converter clutch solenoid valve harness or connectors
- Torque converter clutch solenoid valve circuit is open or shorted

When is the code detected?
Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) unlocked for 10 sec., ECM commands converter lock-up and did not record engine speed drop.

P0740 JEEP Description
The torque converter clutch solenoid valve is activated, with the gear in D4, by the Transmission Control Module (TCM) in response to signals sent from the vehicle speed and the Engine Control Module (ECM). Lock-up piston operation will then be controlled. When the torque converter clutch solenoid valve is activated, the torque converter lockup clutch will engage creating a 1 to 1 RPM ratio between the transmission input shaft and the rotational speed of the torque converter.

Lock-up operation, however, is prohibited when A/T fluid temperature is too low.

When the accelerator pedal is depressed (less than 2/8) in lock-up condition, the engine speed should not change abruptly. If there is a big jump in engine speed, there is no lock-up.

did you hook up the flywheel to the torque converter? the clicking and grinding noise could be the trans is in park and the flywheel is going around, or the torque converter is bound up and not properly in the pump of the trans, and the clicking and grinding could be the parking pawl trying to stop and lock the trans.(this is what stops the car from rolling) I think its a torque converter alignment problem.

Put car on lift while running and listen for sound. May be dust shield off of torque converter hitting fly wheel or a loose fly wheel bolt.

FLYWHEEL MAKES RUBBING NOISE WHEN WARM AND ACCELERATING


You have a grinding noise when it's running or when you try to start it?
There is an inspection cover just behind the oil pan of the engine. If you remove it you can see the teeth on the flywheel. Chances are that the flywheel may still be good and the starter drive (part of starter) may be failing. If so and you leave it that way it will damage the flywheel. On automatic cars it's called a flex plate. And yes if you have a chrysler trans on there the converter may have the ring gear welded on.

Transmission quit moving no noise, nothing grinding etc..


If it doesn't move forward or backward, then the pump or torque converter are likely bad. First put it in drive with the rear wheels up. Pull out the speed sensor in the overdrive unit( rear housing on the trans) and look in the hole to see if the output shaft is turning. This will tell you if this is a trans problem or a transfer case problem. If it is turning but the rear drive shaft isn't, inspect the transfer case. If the output shaft isn't turning, hook up a pressure gauge to the transmission and check for line pressure. If line pressure is low, replace the pump. If line pressure is good, replace the torque converter.
