They are a good tranny.  Just most of them were neglected most of their lives.   Its one of the simpler, cheaper ones to rebuild.

The TF 999 should work.  I think all external dimensions are the same.  From what I understand its a tad beefier than the 998.  All fasteners should be torqued to specifications.  Will that avoid problems with the trannny?  Not neccesisarily.

my 86 Eagle with the 998 has a problem when its cold..yea I know wrap it in a sweater,
in warmer wx no problem since I used Clarks Trans Medic, really made a difference..I have heard comments like the toris seal in the front is bypassing? when the tranny warms up to op temp everything works fine, doesn't seem to slip etc, also I read someplace about a rear rubber seal, and back up slipage?  the tranny has 120k so it sounds like a rebuild is comming...my 81 wagon, needed a rebuild and the lock up converter was the problem, also my 83 limited has lotsa tranny shop time...3x all for the converter comming apart? My 88 wagon still works ok at 111K :o

It appears the torque converter and age are the weakest links.  Not much you can do about the torque converter as its in the design -- age, means a good rebuild.  Still much cheaper to rebuild these old 998's than the new stuff out there.  Ouch!

Last November I was having major tranny problems, so I dropped it off at a local tranny shop for an estimate, and I was informed it would be a meer $1875.00, so I decided to call around and found a rebuilt transmission at my local Autozone parts store part number "248256 904AMC4LU TRA 4X" for $503.99 with a $200.00 core charge. I had it in my 86 Eagle sedan within the week and have been free of tranny problems since. This transmission comes with a lockup TC and is dyno tested

Hello all. I sold my '80 wagon to a local guy(VancouverBC) and 3 days later I bought an '87 wagon from Spokane. So now I'm back into Eagle land again. Yeh!!Seems I have a small problem with the tranny though. When I parked it overnight and went out to start it, it wouldn't start. Lots of juice etc. Seems there is something wrong with the tranny/linkage engagement. Sometime it will start either in D or N. It's intermittent. When it does start, feels and sounds like the driveshaft is binding a little. U joints  or diff ?? don't sound healthy either. Could a bad U joint cause the tranny not to engage properly. I haven't been under it to check because driveline stuff isn't my best area. But if you guys could suggest what to look for, that would be terrific

You need to adjust the linkage so it starts in park.  I think that info. is here somewhere in this section.   Make sure the transfer case is fully engaged.  I suggest in 2WD until you check things out further.  A 9/16" wrench placed on the TC shift lever nut and turned like you are tightening it will put it in 2WD.

Not as much as others have; but I am armed with a TSM.  Let us know if that was the problem.
