Where do one add auto transmision oil to a jeep grand cherokee 3.7l petrol model and what type do one use

The transmission on this truck is sealer, it doesn't have a fill tube or dipstick. To add fluid requires a scanner be hooked up to monitor fluid temperature and a special fill port used under the truck to add fluid.

I drained the transmission fluid put of my Jeep. I got taken away from it for about 4 days before I could get back to it. I have added fluid back in slowly.

Sounds like maybe the filter isn't seated in the seal or the seal is missing/broken and sucking air into the pump, this would cause bubbles, one way to tell for sure is to overfill the transmission by a couple quarts for testing and see if the bubbles go away.

How often change oil in transmission

the book says every 30k Miles, However My buddy that owns a tranny shop tells me that checking the fluid and smelling it, if its discolored change it, if it smells burnt change it, if you see tiny air bubbles on the dipstick change it , Normal operating temp of a transmission is 215 degrees, heat varies by type of use, at a constant 215 degrees you can run then 100k miles, but for each 20 degrees it cuts that in half, myself I change mine the minute I smell any thing like a burnt smell, which is usually around 50k Miles, and I drive my vehicles pretty hard , and I don't have a transmission cooler

92 Cutlass Supreme: How to read transmission fluid levels? Where to add fluid?

A 92 should have a normal dipstick for the ATF, near the firewall, if it is an automatic.
If it is a stick, then you need to pull the plug on the side of the tranny, underneath.

1. Drive the vehicle until the fluid temperature reaches normal operating the usual temperature [80-90°C (176-194°F)]. 2. Place the vehicle on a level floor. 3. Move the selector lever sequentially to every position. This will fill the torque converter and hydraulic system with fluid, then place lever in "N" (Neutral) position. 4. Before removing the dipstick, wipe all contaminate from area around the dipstick. Then take out the dipstick and check the condition of the fluid. The transaxle should be overhauled under the following conditions. a. If there is a "burning" odor. b. If the fluid color has become noticeably blacker. c. If there is a noticeably excessive amount of metal particles in the fluid. 5. Check to see if the fluid level is in the "HOT" range on dipstick. If fluid level is low, add automatic transaxle fluid until the level reaches the "HOT" range. Transaxle fluid: GENUINE HYUNDAI ATF SP-II, DIAMOND ATF SP-II or AUTRAN MMSP-II. Low fluid level can cause a variety of abnormal conditions because it allows the pump to take in air along with fluid. Air trapped in the hydraulic system forms bubbles which are compressable. Therefore, pressures will be erratic, causing delayed shifting, slipping clutch and brakes, etc. Improper filling can also raise fluid level too high. When the transaxle has too much fluid, gears churn up foam and cause the same conditions which occur with low fluid level, resulting in accelerated deterioration of automatic transaxle fluid. In either case, air bubbles can cause overheating, and fluid oxidation, which can interfere with normal valve, clutch, and servo operation. Foaming can also result in fluid escaping from the transaxle vent where it may be mistaken for a leak. 6. Be sure to examine the fluid on the dipstick closely.0f3ac6e.gif
