    Be sure you check the manual for the correct Transmission Fluid. If you use standard ATF fluid, it will ruin your transmission. Not sure about the bolt.

on all gear boxes.
if A/T we RTM read the operators guide. for how to do it right,
most dont and wreck the tranny. the #1 reason they removed the filler.
when posting car issues, stated what it is.
like this.
95 Trooper, 4wd M/T , i want to change the 5speed box lube.
what do i need to do that.?
ill spin the wheel of fate, and land on 5speed box.
and answer for TR5 and NV1500 boxes.

For all transmissions except for the Borg-Warner T5R, replace the transmission fluid at the first 15,000 miles (24,000 km) and then every 30,000 miles (48,000 km) thereafter. The Borg-Warner T5R transmission does not require periodic changing of the transmission fluid. (they lie)
  1. Raise the vehicle and support safely on jack-stands. Place a fluid catch pan under the transmission drain plug.
  2. Remove the fill plug from the side of the transmission, then remove the drain plug. Be cautious when removing the drain plug: the transmission fluid can be very hot. Allow the transmission fluid to drain into the pan.
  3. Install the drain plug and tighten to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm) for all models except the 1996 Hombre, which requires 27 ft. lbs. (37 Nm).
  4. Refer to the manual transmission fluid recommendations for the proper viscosity of engine oil, or type of transmission fluid to be used for the T5R and NV1500 transmissions. Fill the transmission by pouring the new fluid through the fill plug hole in the side of the transmission. Fill until the fluid starts to dribble out of the filler hole. Install the fill plug to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm), then lower the vehicle.
so next you ask, what fluid
sure.
Use engine oil for all of the manual transmissions, except for the Borg-Warner T5R and the NV1500 (1996 Hombre). Make sure to use engine oil of the correct viscosity for these transmissions, as follows:
  • Except 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, high temperature-SAE 40
  • Except 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, normal temperature-SAE 5W-30SF
  • 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, high temperature-SAE 15W-40, 20W-40 or 20W-50
  • 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, normal temperature-SAE 5W-30
he Borg-Warner (B-W) T5R is found on Rodeo models with the V6 engine. The 1991-93 B-W T5R uses DEXRON-II automatic transmission fluid, whereas the 1994-96 B-W transmission uses DEXRON- III automatic transmission fluid.

use the highest Dexron number, on the shelf, mark III is not made today.

Transmission fluid


First, refer to the dip stick top or the vehicle manual to identify which type of fluid to add to your transmission.
I presume you are referring to the more popular automatic transmission for many markets.


Run the vehicle until it is warm.


Remove the gearbox oil dipstick.


Jack the vehicle up a little if it helps, as you will need a drain tray and tool. Creep under the vehicle and remove the gearbox oil drain bung. It's usually at the lowest point, in the gearbox oil pan.


Drain the oil until you have almost no drips.


If you don't wish to replace the gearbox oil filter at this point, then procede to tighten the drain bung back into the oil pan/sump using a fresh washer if needed. Once tight (don't go mad as these can strip easily) you can procede to add your new oil.


You will likely need a very thin funnel to fit into the dipstick tube as this is where the oil is added on almost all Japanese models at least. If you can't find out how much oil to add to your vehicle, then add as much as you dropped out at first, or perhaps a little less as your fresh oil is cold as opposed to the expanded, warmer oil which came out.


Once added, start the vehicle, and go through the gears with your foot on the brake.
With the engine running and in Park, check the gearbox oil level.


You can often get false readings on the dipstick until all the oil you added to the dipstick tube has run into the gearbox, so you might want to check this after half an hour or so.


Run the vehicle, do a road-test, and then return and recheck for any oil leak at the drain bung and the oil level once again.


Gearboxes are very sensitive to having incorrect oil levels, so try to keep it as accurate as possible.


Good luck!

1998 2D Coupe(Automatic) O/D blinks, catch when gears change


When was the last time the Transmission Fluid and Filter were changed? More than 35,000 miles = Fluid and Filter change.
Is there any leaks what so ever? This will affect shifting.
Have the Transmission Sensors been removed, cleaned/inspected and reinstalled? These Sensors are "magnets" and catch little metal particles that inhibit their functions, including shifting.
What is the condition and level of the Transmission Fluid. Make sure you smell the Fluid. If it smells burnt, then change it immediately. Make sure you check the level when the engine is at normal temperature and while the engine is running, with the gear in Park or Neutral (with the Parking Brake ON!).
Does this Transmission have a Solenoid (electronic shifting)? If so have you checked the electronic connections for corrosion or oxidation?
Don't spend $2,000 (or more) dollars when the rest of these combined cost less than $200 dollars!
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Can not find where to check transmission fluid


That's because there isn't one, only automatics have a dipstick. Manuals have a fill port located on the side of the transmission if you loosen it and gear oil (not the same thing as automatic transmission fluid) drips out or is level with the hole it's full if not it needs more. Most oil change places will check it for a couple bucks, unless you have a lift it's not easy to get to.

What bung do I need to remove to change gear box oil


their isnt one you have to slacken the sump bolts to drain the oil.Also why are you changing the oil has it been contaminated??if its not dirty with water from a flood or something then do not touch and stop listening to part time weekend bar room know it all know nothing so called mechanics.automatic gearboxes only use the oil to work the torque converter and fill the pistons up to operate the epyicyclic gears ,whilst its working ok do not touch,and as for a haynes handbook look carefully and see if the writers are members of the institute of road transport engineers, ???

Gear box has rough changes in traffic ie between traffic lights. but goes away when you accellerate through it.


For a manual transmission, Check the gear oil in your transmission, sometimes when it's low the shifter will be hard to shift even with the clutch in. For an automatic transmission, check your transmission fluid, and if you can, do a transmission filter/gaskit service. Good luck!
