Transmissions & Drivetrains

Will transmissions work with other engine?

Will the transmission from the 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the 5.9 V8 work if I put a 4.0 l 6 cylinder in from a 98 jeep grand cherokee.

First question - are you referring to an automatic transmission for the 4WD?

If an automatic - there are two models for the 1996; so check the Transmission code 42RE; 4 Speed
or Transmission code 44RE; 4 Speed.

For the 1998 model year, there is one (1) automatic transmission, so again check the specific transmission codes: 42RE; 4 speed

If the transmission models are the 42RE - then they will interchange from the 1996 5.2L V8 to the 1998 4.0L inline six cylinder engine.

Be sure to always replace the individual transmission mounts - due to mileage and wear, and also check the driveshaft and u-joints for wear - when changing the transmissions.

Try these various on-line vendors - to list only a few:

These same transmission mounts fit (interchange) between the Jeep Cherokee (and Grand) model years 1984-2000 and 1996-1998;

Transmission mount (crossmember) = PIONEER part # 622625 - or it's equivalent
Transmission mount (rear) = ANCHOR part #2828 - or it's equivalent
