i was suprised when i changed my transfer case.

the fluid was brown. and there was quite a bit of silver particles in it. it might just be the first time it has ever been changed. it only took about 10 minutes to change and refill. i changed mine at 40K miles.

my transmission was shifting really hard. when i would put it in reverse, it would clunk in . it would take a few seconds between shifts.

now everything is very smooth. almost like new. the tranny took me a few hours because i let every drop of fluid out. and the filter seal was a pain to get out.

How did you fill the transfer case? I was thinking of doing this eventually but not sure how to get up in there. Was going to have the stealer do it. I'm assuming you did this similarly to engine oil? let it get warm/hot and get all the crap in suspension?

The Way I have always tried (not always possible) to change my Transmission fluid is to disconnect one of the trans cooler lines, and using 2 5 gallon buckets, pour all the fresh fluid in one and put the suction side of the line into the fluid (with little filter) and then have the output just pump into the empty bucket. Start the car and let it idle, and it will pump and flush the system. If you watch the color of the fluid you will see when you have fully flushed the whole system torque converter and all. It uses a bit more fluid, but you get the whole system.

How much fluid do you use for this process?

2006 XK, 4.7, QT-II, Dark Khaki Pearl. BA Sound System with Sirius/XM and 6 Disc. Leather. DVD Entertainment System. Class IV Tow Set up. Jeep Rubber Floor Mats. Garmin Nuvi 350. GPS-Enabled Escort Passport 9500i. Thule Roof Cargo Bag. Thule Bike Rack (4). Factory Tint... But going darker.

3.7L V6 Transmission and Transfer Case QT1


Engines- (oil capacity)

3.7L V6 5qts Engine Oil

4.7L V8 6qts Engine Oil

5.7L V8 7qts Engine Oil

Differentials oil Capacity

Front 1.5qts 75W140 (GL5)

Rear 2.5qts 75W140 (GL5)


So the transmission and transfer case use the exact same fluid? I thought you could use any tranny fluid (i.e.) synth. mobil1, RP, etc., but the tranfer case used a Mopar ONLY fluid you HAD to get at the stealer???

'06 silver 4.7 4x4, 2" Rough Country lift, 265/70/17 Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs, 17 x 8.5 MB V-Drive wheels, AEM Brute Force CAI, Optima Red Top, Bilstein HD struts up front, and a couple really cool stickers that add somewhere between 10-13 HP

I think that information that was posted was wrong. The Transfer Case doesnt take Full Synthetic ATF. It uses the Mopar ONLY fluid you were refering to. As for the Transmission im not sure as I have not messed with mine yet. I swapped out the T-Case fluid at 30,000 miles and it still looked brand new.
