check trans. fluid level per owners manual.The high operating temperatures cause fluid to expand greatly,an over-filled transmission can actually force excess fluid out of the dip stick tube.check level with trans. hot,engine running in park on a level surface. After driving,place shifter in park,hold brake and move shifter through all gears and back to park.remove dipstick,wipe clean,re-insert and check fluid level.normally,trans fluid & filter should be changed +/- 100 k miles
IF YOUR VEHICLE IS A 3,7 4X4 AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION,THEN THE CODE YOU HAVE IS 3RD GEAR RATION INCORRECT. THIS COULD BE BECAUSE YOU HAVE LOW TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL- IF YOU HAVE ONLY THIS CODE.- WHAT YOU DO: PUT THE CAR ON A CORRECT GROUND LEVEL,START THE ENGINE PUT THE GEAR BOX TO NEUTRAL POSITION ( NO PARK ) AND CHECK THE LEVEL OF THE TRANSMISSION FLUID.SHOULD BE ON THE CORRECT LEVEL.IF IT NEEDS FLUID TOP IT UP WITH THE RECOMMENDED FLUID BY THE MANUFACTURER.CLEAR THE CODE EITHER BY USING A SCANNER OR DISCONNECT THE BATTERY. ( BE SURE IF YOU HAVE A RADIO WITH CODE ) THEN DRIVE IT TO SEE WHETHER THE CODE CONE OR NOT. GOOD LUCK.
The transmission fluid stick is usually toward the back of the engine.That's right where the engine transmission connect together.It should also be labeled transmission on top of the stick.To check transmission fluid level,you need to let it run about 5 minutes on a level surface,then check the level.When you check it,if you see little metal flakes on the stick,there is something very wrong with your transmission.Good luck!

there should be a dipstick under the hood similar to the engine one,usually the fluid level is checked when the transmission is at normal running temp. with the shifter in N or P but make sure the hand brake is on.....hope this helps.....cheers
Jeep decided that there is no need to check the trans fluid, the trans is is sealed unit. You have a tube for the trans fluid, but it has a factory cap and no dip stick. A special tool is needed to check the fluid level.
You always check transmission fluid with it running and in park,If your dip stick has a place on it for cold use it cold,Other wise it should be on the full mark,you might want to look under your jeep for any new leaks!
Go underneath and look at tranny, There will be an upper filler plug and a lower drain plug. You can get top and hose for your gear oil / tranny fluid and fill. The level of the fluid should be exactly at bottom of hole
"Sealed" means there's no dip stick tube. The Explorers and Lincoln LS have this also. It is nothing new and you can still change/flush the fluid as usual. A special procedure is used to check the fluid level. Not having the dip stick tube is one less place for dirt to get into the transmission. please rate my answer
