did a tune up

so i just did a full tune-up on my jeep and i can feel a huge difference in my performance...
the base im on has a auto hobby shop which has a transmission fluid flusher machine or whatever thier called, so i did that and im glad cause my old tranny fluid was almost black, guess that was the first time its ever been changed in its 67,000 miles, so much smoother shifting, and wal-mart now sells mopar fluid so it was alot cheaper to do than if i had to buy from the stealership...i also did my oil and spark plugs and air filter but i do that every 3,000 and 6,000 miles when needed so that wasnt bad..just thought i would share..

maintenance is a wonderful thing

for the future though i don't think you had to use mopar fluid, although vehicles now days have some requirements for special fluid, yours was probably just atf+4 or something like that, i know in my shop valvoline max life trans fluid covers 97% of applications mercon/dexron atf+3 and 4 and so on.

just in case you want to save money, or maybe you just prefer mopar and thats cool to.

The hobby shops are great, used them at every base I was ever stationed or went to schools at.

When you do a flush you are able to get all the nasty stuff from the pipes and the cooler too while if you just drop the pan you only get out whats in the pan. Flush is better but more expensive. (auto tranny)
