What kind of transmission do I have?
I have a 1997 Wranger, 4.0 liter engine, manual transmission.

Tomorrow I am going to check the lubricant level in the manual transmission, and add some if necessary. According to my Haynes manual, the type of fluid depends on the type of transmission I have:


AX-4/5: SAE 75/90W GL-5 gear lubricant
AX-15: SAE 75/90W GL-5 gear lubricant
NV1500: Mopar, manual transmission lubricant
NV3500: Mopar, manual transmission lubricant
How can I determine which transmission I have?

There is a very high percentage that it is the AX15.
