General information

All models of the brand of cars described in this manual are equipped or a five-step manual box (switching) of transfers (RKPP), or the four-stage automatic transmission (AT). All information on AT contains in this Chapter. Information on RKPP can be found in the Part the Manual box of gear shifting of this Chapter. All-wheel drive models are equipped with also transfer case. Information on the transfer case is provided in the Part the Transfer case of the Head.

In view of complexity of a design of AT and need of use of the special equipment for performance of the majority of procedures of its service this Chapter mainly included only descriptions of procedures of the general diagnostics of malfunctions, routine maintenance, adjustment and removal installation.

Capital repairs of transmission (if in that there is a need) have to be made by specialists of dealer office or a workshop of car service. However, performing procedures of removal and installation of transmission quite on forces to the average amateur mechanic that allows to cut down significantly expenses on metalwork works at delivery of transmission in repair.


On cars to which this manual is devoted electronically controlled AT of four various types can be applied. Transmission of the AW-4 type is used only on models of 1993 of the issue. Transmissions 42RE, 42RH and 46RH have a similar design (but AW-4, other than a design) and issues are used on models since 1994. And transmissions 42RE and 42RH are applied only complete with 6 cylinder engines whereas 46RH is established on all models equipped with the V8 engine.

If you are the owner of the model of 1994 of the issue equipped with the 6th 4.0 l cylinder engine, then on your car transmission of type either 42RE, or 42RH will be established. The simplest way of examination like transmission is survey from below of the pallet of its case after preliminary raising and reliable fixing of the car. Pallets of cases of transmissions of type 42RE are quite superficial and have the turned camber on the right on the bottom; pallets of transmissions 42RH are deeper also flat-bottomed.

All models since 1995 the issue are equipped with transmissions of type 42RE.
