My 2001 is now leaking transmission fluid, it only has 60k miles on it - something is always leaking on this jeep - I've owned it since it was brand new, kept up good maintenance.
It is the front seal this month - I can't do major work vehicles anymore so I'm at the mercy of a shop. They told me to hold off for a while and see how bad it gets before doing the job. Mechanic told me he's seen them last the life of the vehicle without absolutely needing to be replaced. We'll see, I hate leaks and don't have that kind of luck.
In the mean time, I've been keeping an eye on the fluid level. I have a 100 mile trip tomorrow and need to ck it cold. The owners manual says that it can in be checked cold if absolutely necessary - hot ideal. Can't drive it tonight, need to ck cold, the manual also says the fluid level cold should be 'between the 2 circles on the dipstick'............there are no 2 circles on the dipstick, there is one located about a .5" +/- below the hatch marks, someone must have forgot to make sure they were both stamped at the factory.
anyone out there know about where it ideally should be on the dipstick cold?
