mudslinger150 my tranny has the fill plug on the passangers side, it isn't not an allen bolt it is a hex head and it has a wire comming off it that goes to a plug, and the drain bolt is a hex head bolt too.

i have a 98, does this sound right? hopefully because i swapped out the fluids and drove it around today with no issues.

Not totally sure which you have, but I know in my 97 the fill plug is actually halfway up on the driver's side, not passenger. It looks the same as in the picture above though.

if you have a 2001 manual 4.0L then no. you have the NV3550 transmission.

your trans will take a little more than 2 qts. i've found that what is recommended is mopar part # 0487446, but i have also seen that guys use pennsoil synchromesh and royal purple synchromax.

Manual Transmission Fluid Change (another one)

If i could get a picture or a diagram of the fill and drain plugs for this task that is all i need.

maybe some crafty work with a picture and the paint program

its an AX-15

Thank You
