What other yrear transmissions will fit in the 95 grand cherokee with the 6cyl besides 95?

I need a used trans for my 95 grand cherokee, I was told that that trans for the 1995 is specific for that year. Will any other years transmissions work in the 95?

    My trans needs to be replaced, the vehicle is not worth the quotes I have been given for a rebuilt trans, I want a used trans, it is the I6 4x4 auto(42re). First I was told any GC trans will work in it, then later was told only 95 will work. Will any other years work for what I want to do?

S there a relatively easy way to replace the crank sensor on a 1995 jeep grand cherokee ?

yes and no/ year depends...
yes, if it the right engine.
no if not. (95 is exception)
but you never told what engine you have,
the 4.0L comes in 2 types, (depends on transmissions too)
one just unbolts, and put in new one.
the other must be calibrated or its destroyed,

here is the 4 versions of 4L
see figure 7, this one cant just be stuffed in willly-nillly, on many years.

if its on the left, and has one hole mount, bingo, the magic
spacer, and the .030" gap. calibration.
took me calling maker of sensor to learn that magic gap.

that was for all 4L
your , offical 95 year FSM book shows this.
shows the easy, 2 bolt leftside46bc71f7-0ca7-47f5-9e23-68e4d1e1908b.jpg

Will a 96 transmission work in a 95 jeep cherokee

From my research, I believe you can. I would get the tag number, production date of the vehicle and engine size. You can check on, they will give you a list of salvage yards that will have the transmission you would need. They break everything down to the production date, engine size 4X4 or 4X2, and year.

Is the overdrive solenoid on a 95 JGC accessible, externally?

no. its part of the valve body inside of the transmission. you would need to drain and remove the transmission oil pan and then remove the valve body. Best left to a transmission shop or reputable repair center.

I was told that there may be a felt spacer on transmission

The Flywheel needs to match the engine. The sensor ring gives the proper signal for the spacific engine computer controls. Was this a used transmission? and what was it out of? is this 4WD? and what year? Does the trans have all the same connctors? If the torque converter doesn't match then it is possibly for different engine or year. The flwheel sensor ring did change on different years.
You need torque converter to match.
