Hey, I have a Jeep Grand Cherokee Zj 4.0 i6 1997 re42 transmission
Every thing is fine when i start up an engine, but driving for a while and hitting reverse my engine stalls.When engine and gearbox start to get warm. If i keep up engine rev's just the little bit (above 1300rpm)then engine will stay on. If I hit reverse car wants to start driving right away. Again when I'm driving backward with/without gas pedal, everythings fine, but when I hit a brake engine will stall.
I just bought the car . Previous owner didn't know anything about the car, he said it needs transmission swap. My friend has Grand Cherokee zj for parts, but it has AW4 transmission which is better, but re42 swap to aw4 is too big of a job right now. Guy before previous owner did a engine swap, bc it had strocker on it. I can't get contact of him anywhere. But I quess it isn't transmisson failure. Could it be torqe converter or something else? Transmissoin fulid level is ok color is great, but smells burt.
