Remove the dip stick first. Then wiggle it, wiggle it again, and just before you call for a tow to the dealership, it should come loose (remember the way it was removed for the installation process).

Fluid dipstick

replace with new one

Jan 15, 2014 | 1997 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

I have a 1996 Grand Jeep Cherokee and was told that there is a switch that is connected to the transmission that needs to be repaired, a plug switch, it will only start if those wires are connected, not...

If the switch (neutral safety switch) is located at the drivers rear of the transmission, you can usually get a replacement plug from a scrapyard. the plug has three wires. one is power, one goes to the reverse lights and the other operates the starter. (difficult to get it wrong when re-connecting).
If the switch itself is bad, it just screws out and screws back in. Put a pan under there when replacing it as you may loose some trans fluid..
If you have a six cylinder then the switch should be on the passenger side of the trans opposite where the linkage on the drivers side goes into the unit. That's a bit more complicated to replace and I suggest you get a chilton or haynes manual for instructions. That switch has it's own harness that ends at a plug up on the firewall near the trans fill tube.

On a '96 Jeep Cherokee 4.0L 4X4, do you have to remove the exhaust or crossmember to remove the transmission pan and does the dipstick tube seperate from the pan?

You shouldn't have to, but check for clearance before you start. The height between the bottom of the pan and the cross member should be more than the height of the pan itself.You may be able to gain an 1 or so, but using a jack or the front of the transmission bell housing and on the output shaft. DO NOT try to support the weight of the vehicle, just try to gain a little clearance if needed.

Describe how to change transmission fluid and filter in 1996 jeep grand cherokee straight 6

Assume since you say filter it is automatic.

Before starting the job obtain the fluid and filter for your vehicle. The parts store can provide you the right kind and amount of fluid based on Make Year Model. Also obtain new gasket.

Transmission must be cool.
Raise vehicle on jack stands.
Locate the fluid pan. Remove the side and front bolts.
Place a drain pan under the transmission capable of holding 8 quarts (two gallons).
Loosen the rear pan mounting bolts. Fluid should start to drain around the pan at the front. If not the pan is stuck. Pry it gently at the front with a flexible putty knife.
Once fluid is draining you can eventually take the rear bolts all the way out and pour off the balance of fluid.

Clean the gasket mounting surface on the transmission.

Clean the fluid pan completely.

Remove the old filter. It will be held with screws (bolts).

Install new filter.

Assure surfaces are still clean. Put new gasket in place, and install pan, tightening the bolts (screws) gradually until correct torque for your transmission is reached.

Take car off jack stands.

Add the correct amount of fluid for your vehicle through the filler tube. (Parts store can look this up when you are there).

Start with engine in park. Maintain idle, don't race engine.
Shift to each range setting, and then back to neutral.

Watch for leaks - if occur will need to repeat the procedure but the filter can be left in place.
