I just finished installing an aw4 in my 98 tj. In our adult beverage induced 4 am install nights we forgot to pre fill the torque converter. I have just finished buttoning up some of the loose ends, and have been driving the jeep around town for the past 5 days. It runs and shifts fine. I checked the fluid and it reads full. I am 95% sure there is not enough fluid in the trans. I have 4 questions.
1) is it absolutely nesecary to pre fill the TC before install?
B) is there any way to make sure the fluid is getting where it needs to go w/o dropping the trans again?
3) Would a power flush add fluid to the system and ensure there is enough fluid in the trans?
G) Do I have to drop the trans and fill the TC?
I think it is kind of obvious that I have never delt with auto trans b4, have swapped a few manuals tho. Also after about 30-60 min of driving around the trans temp climbs into the 200-220 range. It is a gradual rise in temp, it doesnt jump up. Thanks in advance
