Re: Fill the oil level on a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee,
Yes you should remove the access. This will cause the engine to drown in a sense and have to fight. It is always safe to put in not enough to too much. You onlt have a certain amount of oil that can be placed in the pan before it runs up into your cylinder heads and can break the seal on the gasket. Then you would have to pay to get the cylinder head gasket replaced.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

start by cleaning your radiator cooling fins first and have the core checked, if in order start by replacing all filters, drain the oil ,flush the whole system with approved atf oil, oem, fill ,test transmission , keep hand brake on, engage drive selection then reverse, the switch off and check oil level. if dropped fill up but do not over fill for it can cause heating, drain if needed. once all completed that a drive and test, if still heating up have the torque converter tested. Normally it's either too much oil or too little/oil lost it's viscosity through over heating
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.
Hello Debra Russ, U may locate oil filter 4 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee 2 way's.

Congradulations! You found it when a black oil droplet drips from the oil filter into said average oil filled hair of said average person! (insert smiles here) FASTESTNASCAR
Nothing special there, just run the engine with the heater on full heat and slowly add coolant. Providing the system is working properly (radiator not plugged or bad thermostat) it should continue to fill till the thermostat opens, a bit will then belch out and the level will drop. Then continue filling 'till no more will go in. (a plugged radiator generally takes coolant very slowly...far slower than normal) Only thing that will cause it not to fill properly other than what I mentioned would be if you have a bad head gasket or crack in the head. That will continue to put exhaust into the cooling system and displace coolant. (usual other symptoms of that are steam from tailpipe or coolant in the engine oil) Test is a hydrocarbon test either by using a dye or a "sniffer" machine.
oil, tranny fluid, and filters: air filter and fuel filter as well. Fill up tank and add 1 can of SeaFoam. Change spark plugs, wires, coil wire if distributor is present - as well as cap and rotor.
If coil packs are present, repalce the plugs and wires, air filter, fuel filter, and have the catalytic converter tested to make sure it's not plugged. This test will also let you know if the O2 sensor(s) are bad or not.
Please let me know if you need any further assistance.
NOTE: start with the cheaper: air and fuel filter. Then work your way up.
i buy the 5 quart jug i drain it all fill it with about 4 quarts start it let it run for about 30 seconds then shut off wait 5 minutes check oil fill as needed. then remember how many quarts it took. there 4.0 v6 is usualy 5 quarts. but do as stated to be for sure. then you have the empty jug to put used oil in for recycle.
can't help with leak...you didn't say what is leaking...change fluid by removing two one inch flat bolts at back of case, drivers side bottom is drain, upper is fill (remove fill first...if frozen you can't re-fill it.)
