AX-15 Fluid Change

Hey guys as you might know I'm still figuring out how my jeep works and what not. Well i was taking of my shifter knob and the threads broke off , so i took off the shifter handle ONLY not the actual shifting ass. i did this by pressing down on the compressed plate and twisting. Anyways i can now see and feel my tranny fluid and was wondering if i should just drain it and refill it from the top. The jeep only has thirty thousand miles on it cause it has been parked since 96 but we are about to go on a road trip and i want everything tip-top.Also what type of fluid should i use?

Fluid....Redline MT90 or Redline MTL

As for filling if from the top ...you can but it is easier to tell if it is at the correct level buy using the fill plug on the side of the trans. It needs to be just at the bottom of the fill plug.

You can still fill it from the top but pull the fill plug to check the fluid level. Also Always pull the fill plug out before the drain plug. Sometimes the fill plug don't like to come out then your stuck with a tranny with no fluid.

If you have any more questions let us know bud.

so i should remove my fill plug first,then drain it, then fill slowly from the top until the fluid starts coming out of the hole?

and thanks for the input man

Yep.

Most fill from the fill plug but since you have the top opened up already...have at it. It will be easier than using a fluid pump to get the fluid in there.

Please let me know how it worked getting the fill plug out. My '92 has a Torx fitting and says "do not remove" I want to check my manual trans. fluid but am unsure since it warns me "do not remove".

the one that says dont remove probably isnt a fill plug and more likely pivot for shift forks.

I just changed my fluid today...I have the the torx plug that says do not remove, but looked on the other side of the tranny and found the fill plug...it was pretty easy. I got about three quarts out of it, and only 2 1/2 went back in before it started running out of the fill hole. I guess I am going to drive it some and then check it again. The old fluid was super nasty. I put the Penzoil syncrostuff in it.
