Tranny fluid?

I was told to not use GL5 or GL6 rated gear oil in my tranny, but that's all they had at the local parts store. Do I need to go to a Jeep dealer to get fluid? Thank guys

In the other thread, they're saying to use synthetic 10w30.

Boy, that would solve a lot of issues but I want to see that in more detail, from Chrysler or Asin Warner before I try it.... I hope it's true, that way I could only keep one oil for all my jeeps engines and trannys. A heck of a lot cheaper buying Mobil-1 in the 5 quart containers at walmart than Redline at the speed shop.

Well what does everyone use when they usually change their fluid?

For the last 3 times, Mobil-1 gear oil but I bought 2 cases of it back in 99 or 00 and it was NOT rated GL5, it was rated GL3. When I ran out I switched to Redline MT for the trannys and I have always run Mobil-1 ATF in the tranfer cases of all three NP231's.

OK, I guess I'll go with Redline. That stuff it a bit pricey though, right? Not that its a huge problem, but I'm not making loads of money helping out at a machine shop. I'll pick some up tomorrow hopefully. Is there a specific numerical fluid or just Redline Manual Transmission fluid? 4 quarts right? Thanks

Plain old Redline MT-90 gear and transmission oil. I paid I think about $11 a quart vs $19 for the mopar factory fluid so to me the redline is a bargain... working in a machine shop you should be a discount same as parts if you can get that, almost any parts store can order it, some even keep it in stock. I gave my local parts store a heads up on the jeep manual tranny lube issues, now he keeps a few cases on the shelf labeled 'for jeep AX 5 speed manuals transmissions'.

OK. Yeah I might be able to get the discount as it is a motorcycle specialties shop and machine shop, but I get paid tomorrow, and I'll probably be right by a place where I can get it, so I might as well. I need a few tow hooks and a hook reciever, too, so I'll pick it all up. But I should hold off on filling it back up before I figure out what is wrong, cause I could maybe end up having to replace my trans, so I'll buy it but wait on filling it. The AX5 takes the same fluid as the AX15? Thanks a lot, Rich.

All the AX's take the same stuff, someone mentioned that Nissan or Yotas use them too so they may just have tranny fluid too, asins are used in alot of vehicles.

Actually I can't remember, when I buy the stuff I just buy it by the case. All our jeeps take the same lubes cept for the rear 8.25 in my XJ, thats got an Auburn LSD in it that I use Drydene in with a friction modifier, that I get in a 5 gallon bucket from the farm supply store out by the general store and post office...
I try to do them all at once so I fill a couple of 2 1/2 gallon jugs with a hand pumps on them, one ATF one Redline, line em up and refill as needed.
I think you'd be good with 3 quarts of Mobil-1 ATF for the TC and 4 quarts of Redline MT-90 for the tranny. The book says 2.5 pints approx for the TC. The book says 3.5 quarts for the AX5 tranny, 3.27 quarts for the AX15.
