Transmission service

I have a 98 TJ with a 2.5 and a 5spd tranny. I want to change the fluid. Is there a plug in the bottom? and on the side? Also what fluid do I use? I havn't climbed under it yet to look but I figured one of you can make this easy on me. haha Thanks.

Re: Transmission service

You will need a small bottle pump to fill it up. Drain on bottom. Clean the magnet on the drain and fill plugs. Make a small funnel to direct the draining fluid or it will drain all over you skid plate.

So there is a fill plug on the side then? Just run 80/90 ?

Look in your manual for the correct oil to use. There is a fill bolt on the bottom and top of the transmission. Remove the top one first before draining. You don't want to learn the top is stuck in after you drain all the oil.

Re: Transmission service

I believe that the new spec is 10w30.

You can also view the FSM by googling jeep knowledge base. I think it is over at jeep4x4center.com.


Also
Found this when googling to find a link for you.
