Looking to change the tranny and diff. fluid in my jeep.

I would prefer to use synthetic, as its cold here in the winter, but I didnt get a owners manuel.

any way to see what tranny and transfer case I have?

The tranny is a 5-speed manual.

thanks all for the info, Who would have guessed 10w30 would work in the tranny?

Also, do you guys suggest full synthetic??

wwch99tj 10-27-2012 06:18 PM

For the trans I would

matt88-8 12-04-2012 08:02 PM

sorry for the late update. Just wondering what you use to remove the filler cap on the tranny? didn't seem to have anything that fit...??

Jerry Bransford 12-04-2012 08:16 PM

Filler cap? There is a metric size drain bolt on the passenger side-front & metric size fill bolt mid-way up on the driver's side of the transmission, 10mm IIRC.

A synthetic 10W-30 engine oil is suitable for your transmission, though there are more desirable gear lubes like Redline MT-90 available from www.summitracing.com that I'd rather use.

wwch99tj 12-04-2012 08:16 PM

I believe it's 24mm

wranglermatt4527 12-04-2012 08:32 PM

Jerry what would be the best gear oil to use in the AX transmissions? I trust your opinion over most. Looking for best longevity and still great performance. My TJ is my DD.

I use Redline MT-90 in mine and it made shifting smoother.
