Diesel gearbox oil change

Does anyone know if there is a dipstick available for the 3.0crd Commander.

I asked the dealer and he says no. You just put 7.7 litres in after swapping the filter. I've never just poured oil in and take that as its done.

Do the petrol and diesel commanders use the same gearbox? I'm sure I've seen pictures of commanders with a dipstick on the gearbox but they were petrol models, mine just has a cap on the dipstick tube that says service on it.

Has anyone got a part number for a dipstick please.

After removing the dip stick plug I just feed a length of cable down the tube until it hit the bottom of the sump and then withdrew it and mark the level. You also need to have the car up to running temp and do the dip stick test while the engine is running as you normally do with all auto transmissions. I now keep this as my custom dip stick tool.

But how do I know that the oil level is correct now. My jeeps done 40k and sometimes I get the service park assist message when engaging drive. But moving it back to netural then back to drive clears it. I wondered if it could be a low oil level? It only ever happens when the oil is cold.

Sorry but the park assist service is linked with the oil?!?!

My jeep on cold days only I have since worked out, will display the "service park assist" message on the dash but it then gets stuck in 1 gear and won't change up. A couple of times I've found that just moving into netural and then back into drive clears the gearbox fault and then the message disappears off the dash.

Since I've got through winter in the uk the gearbox has not played up at all, but I still need to change the gearbox oil at some point before the next winter.

Woow finally someone with my same problem. I live in italy and when the winter arrive( and here is not soo cold we are talking max about minus 15 celsius) when i start my jeep the gear look like stuck and arrive until 3000 rpm before put the second gear.
I had so many problem with it in past cause i was loosing oil but now i fix it but i guess im not using the right oil time, thats why the car look like stuck.
U know exactly witch kind of oil i have to put?
All the time that i got the error on the park system i went to my dealer and they told me that is not related at all... Sometime even now i get this error but just when i brake strongly and i was thinking about some cable touching each other...
I hope to solve this problem on the gearbox..even because mine is just 60k kilometer..

I got the part number from my dealer of C05103531EA for the transmission oil. I haven't changed the oil yet but I will get mine from the dealer to make sure it's correct. My dealer said its ATF 4x4. Hope this helps.
