My recently bought 4.0 ltr. p38 1998 model has a weird problem and i was wondering if anyone had any clues. The problem is like this:
While cruising the highway the other day, the engine started to rev up and power was lost to the wheels. The transmission seemed to be slipping. I stopped the vehichle and it wouldn´t move at all. Neither in D nor R. Absolutely nothing happened when moving the shift lever between D and R, although the indicator in the dash displayed the correct position.
I had the car towed to a garage and inspected. No axle snaps or anything.. - dropped the pan on the transmission and the fluid was clean and no debris. All very clean.
Converter is turning, so the flex plate isn´t broken. Transfer case isn´t at fault, since the parking lock works and wheels are locked.
Car sometimes displays " gearbox fault " when I try putting it in D or R and rev the engine...
Dealer diagnostic tool can´t communicate with the transmission control module.
It is like that now, and I´m out of ideas.
-Any help and ideas much appreciated.
