A damaged torque converter shouldn't affect reverse but the whole tranny. I would think If the torque converter was damaged that it wouldn't move. On my jeep there is something I think is a sensor, i'll look, it's on the bellhousing. I'm not sure if a vavle engages reverse or a solenoid, my guess would be a solenoid to engage reverse, but i'm not sure i'll see what I find. Also is the tranny getting really hot maybe it's not getting fuild at the right spot, if that's the case something could be burning up. Have you had it to any transmission specilists yet, that would help. And what model is it that will tell you a lot.

I serviced my 97 jeep transmission last summer and I swear I had enough fluid in it, but my mechanic said it was low. Added fluid and problems went away.
It would be interesting to know how the transmission cooler is suppose to work and if it is OK. Is it under pressure like your cooling system and how can you measure it?
As a precaution you might want to verify that the filter is keyed by shape or bolt pattern. There's not enough space here for all my mistakes.

Does anyone know why code 26, Governor Pressure Sensor Offset Drift, for the tranny would be coming up?
#494 of 1101 2000 \jeep Grand Cherokee - transmission slip when turn left only
Nov 23, 2009 (11:23 pm)
2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4 6 cyl. When I make a left turn, the transmission seems to slip for a few seconds then catches and goes into gear. Only happens on left turns. Took to transmission place and they found nothing. Transmission levels are fine

I think that could be somthing to do with the rear differention slipping in the turn when all the weight is on the right, because that makes no sense why the tranny would only slip on left turns. It's a thougt!

I found this article link title on the 42RE Governor Pressure Solenoid and Sensor. Thought it might give you some ideas. I can see your main problem is seeing if the trouble is coming from inside or outside your transmission. Good luck!

The transmission slipping on a left turn is a classic sign of a low transmission fluid on the 42RE transmission used on the '95-'98 Jeeps. That happened to me and adding fluid solved the problem.
Have someone recheck the fluid levels (maybe someone else as it could be a not-very-ethical transmission shop) under the conditions specified in the manual. For the 42RE it is with the oil hot, the engine running, and the transmission put in Neutral. But it could be different for your car. The shop I took it to wasn't going to put it in Neutral until I pointed out that that was what was written in the manual. No malice on their part, they're just used to checking it with the transmission in Park.
#498 of 1101 Transmission Problem?
Dec 01, 2009 (12:24 pm)
I have a 2006 JGC Laredo V8:
Seems like the jeep is in a "limp mode". In order to get it to move it you have to rev the engine in order for reverse or the jump into 3rd gear to catch. Had Pep Boys check it out. They said it could possibly be the solenoid. Anyone have any idea's? There are some codes they issued with the OBDII check. I'll post them when I can find them.

My 95 4.0 with the 42RE transmission seems like it's in limp mode but we don't think it is. I'm getting a code for the governor pressure sensor in the tranny. I think when I replaced the head gasket and moved the wires it caused this, because before it shifted fine. I also think the sensor or solenoid may have just went bad.
When I pull out it starts in 1st somtimes and most of the time 2nd. And aome times I have to rev it higher then it slams into gear and takes off.
Go here and it will tell about the solenoid and sensor. This is for the 42RE transmission. http://www.jeepsunlimited.com/forums/showthread.php?t=442673">link title
