dmesz311 The stealership sold a quart for $20...pulled out 3 Mopar manual trans fluid quartz, the bottles say for NV3500 i believe...dusty as hell too, ha dont think they use it too often

CapnDean I used what the manual called for and got synchro whine. THEN I read WRANGLER FORUM and drained out the GL5 75W-90 and poured in 10w 30 synthetic : NO WHINE.

jwm1986 Another vote for Redline if it matters at this point. Stay away from Pennzoil Syncromesh!

Royal Purple makes another very good tranny fluid. I am thinking it was called syncromesh as well but cannot remember.

Phil05LJ [QUOTE=pokey;1060901]Your '99 was the last year jeep used the AX15 and they discontinued the original Mopar fluid for that tranny. The dealer now recommends Mopar 10w30 motor oil for the AX15, which is fine. Or any 10w30 motor oil, preferably synthetic. The Redline is an excellent fluid for your tranny, it's what I use. You may have other issues. I think the Redline is the best stuff out there for the AX15.

edit: your profile says you have a '99 but your username says 05 LJ

Thanks, yeah my 05 LJ is my baby and my 99 TJ is my project trail rig.( i need to update my profile) I may have issues with the tranny among other things but it seems solid, I take it to neutral now when shifting to 2nd instead of throwing it straight back and hearing it grind and I let it mesh in to gear.

Ray - San Jose I'd advise going with factory oils. Some after market oils cause a lot more problems then they cure.

dmesz311 Okedoke. The redline fluid seems to be pretty popular round this site - ill go with it. Thanks for the info.

What he said^
There is no filter.

Manual Trans Fluid Change?

The owners manual of my 2004 says the fluid installed in the trans at the factory is sufficient enough for the life of the vehicle?!? Im gonna change it out. Stupid question for you, are there filters that need to be changed when I do the fluid in the trans? Seems there should be...if so, how many? and where are they? The owners manual is no help Thanks
