Both the transfer cases used during that time look similar. See the following diagrams:


Here are instructions w/ pics:

(If you have the 242 I believe you can use ATF+4 instead of the special Mopar fluid but I would check first to make sure).

Jeep grand cherokee limited transfer case fluid type

what is the question.?
snarky answer "we give you permission" hehe
but my guess, is what fluid is it? that it/,
i presume you see the 2 plugs. there. fill and drain>?
always remove fill plug first. (if cant stop, do not drain it)
242 and 247 have different fluid capacity.
3pints and 2.5 pints respectively
the operators guide tells gear lube used there.
chapter on 242, example.
Dextron II is not correct in 2016, only DEXron VI. (newest grades are always best )
do not mix them, drain and fill with only one class of lube. 100%

Transfer case

A bit more information would be handy. If it is only a how to check the T-case fluid then its simple: just remove the upper (fill) plug on the aft side of the T-case housing. The fluid should be at the top of the hole or even spill out a bit. The jeep should be on level ground to do this check right. Which fluid it eventual needs depends on which T-case it has.

How much gear oil does the transfer case on a 1999 jeep grand cherokee

You will need to buy three quarts but you won't use all of it. Make sure that you can open the fill plug BEFORE you drain it to avoid problems. After draining, replace the drain plug and fill with Dexron III or Dex/Mercon (both are automatic trans fluids). Fill on a level surface 'till the fluid reaches the bottom lip of the fill plug. For severe service, I always replace part of the trans fluid with Lucas trans conditioner.

1999 jeep transfer case wheels turns hard in turns

Sounds like its locked in 4x4. First find an empty parking lot and then put your Jeep in reverse back up about 15 to 20 feet and make sure the jeep is in 2wd that should unlock the front. Dont be affraid to give it a little gas when backing up.

99 jeep grand cherokee limited, have no 4wd. fluid was empty when i got truck filled case, still no 4wd. 242 quad trac. put vehicle on lift shifted into drive rear wheels only engage. any ideas?

If it was ever towed with the wheels on the ground (not dollied) then the transfer case is probably "burned out" and you will need to replace it. These models of jeeps are full time 4WD and MUST be dollied or towed on a carrier or rollback type truck. Unless they have manual locking hubs.

Transfer case? Front diff? HELP!!

Sounds like a transfer case problem. But I can't verify that from here. Coupler is inside the unit on the output shaft and needs teardown to get to it.
