What can I use in an emergency situation for regular transission fluid to add fluid to my transmission that takes special fluid on a 05 ford 500 awd limited

Ok so first your six speed in your ford is made by Aisin/Warner model tf-80sc Is what I came up with. Did you know Toyota use Aisin transmissions? This mean that the cross I found is correct it said that you can use aisin fluid pn atf-qt4 or fluid rated Toyota T-IV as an alt fluid, being that aisin is the manufacture of your trans you probably will have no issue. Also according to another post when he pulled the drain plug it drained out about three quarts from the plug! hope this was helpful.

Will a 95 jeep cherakee auto trans fit in 98 jeep cheokee

if your engine is AMC I6 high output version, it may wont fit without doing small modifications. if it is not high output version it will. transfer case differs model to model. np242 selectrac and np231command trac. they have little difference on 4wd systems. all have 2wd option.

actually it is supposed to have same transmission versions between 1988 to 2001. Aisin-Warner AW4.

I have a 98 jeep XJ

what country are you in, USA/? we are
what engine is there, ? we have like 2, but more outside USE
must we guess both facts?
so the engine runs great that it, all things ok but the trans fails to shift due to obvious , limphome (limp-in) mode ! that it?
You just want shifting to work, right>?

what is the nss, ( that is not an legit term)(VSS???)
(sure tranny bad , VSS swapped, but was not it)
sure.... as is the case most times here. not scanned correctly

first off learn rule one on EFI cars
you can NOT ERASE problems, or you can't erase REALITY.
problems are cured then , you push reset and see if they return
if they DO? THEY ARE REAL and must be corrected.

p-700 means do a full scan of the Tranny TCM to see all errors there
you scan tool is weak. my guess and can not do jeep factory codes
that transmission TCM is in limphome mode.
by light you meant CEL, check engine Lamp that is its name
and comes on for smog fail and other things, (gross errors DRIVE LINE all)
p0700 means (TCM has errors stored, only)
p0100?? that must be a wrong code, written down. says export only.
143 = O2 Sensor Circuit Low Voltage (Bank 1 Sensor 3)
the oxy sensor B1S3 reads, 0volts all the time, so is bad.
did you replace S3 or the wrong sensor.
on calif 4L it has a split exh, man with 3 sensors, is that your engine? if yes, its the extereme rear o2, (smog only sensor)
S3 is CAT check sensors.

XJ jeeps
we have 2 engines, only in USA< (EPA regs)
2.5L and 4.0L GAS only.
and rule 2, is the transmissions match engines, power. rating!
so there is no one transmission fits all engines.
I owned a 99XJ so know it well.
the export car had a 2.5L diesel , a total different setup end to end.
i have the USA service manual open
there is no p0100 code on any Gas engine , usa.
type or is this DIESEL, post?> why not post engine and fuel first.
that tells me drive line (a/t)

lets change your post
b: scan it with a real scan tool, not a toy reader.

here are the jeep works on P0700
This SBEC III or JTEC DTC indicates that the EATX or
Aisin controller has an active fault and has illuminated the
MIL via a CCD (EATX) or SCI (Aisin) message. The
specific fault must be acquired from the EATX via CCD or
from the Aisin via ISO-9141.

takes a matching scan tool to scan this box
ISO-9141. is such a tool, spec.
and needs to read P17xx codes (jeeps) too, or you fail.

our 2.5L gas uses the 30RL trans.
the 4.0L gas (petrol) use the AW4 ,tranny "aisin warner box" with TCM brain
what the diesel uses, is not in my book (USA SM)

now my recommendation
drive to any shop
ask for the transmission to be scanned
do not pull your battery cable.
do not push reset. on your cheap or tool old tool.
leave the codes stored in the TCM so the man can scan it
and win.
oddly my jeep book does not explain, oxy sensor 1/3 at all. just that it reads 0v all the time 143 code, odd that.
but no engine or trans stated by you or country

I have a 1997 Jeep Cherokee, stuck in 2nd...

all answers USA on USA cars,only. (exports are diffr)
so if you didnt scan it when it fails, how would you ever find the truth? (if no errors. then it can be pure mechanical failure)
the car has TCM a tranny brain.
its covered in the SM, read that chapter yet.
on newer cars if the Tranny overheats or engine both can go to LIMPHOME< but your car is not even close to new, is it?
Jeep calls that LIMP-in.
my guess (sux) is its the 4.0L engine with matching AW4 box
it wise to know whats there first. before trying to understand it
a FACT !
so did you google search AW4 boxes. , i bet not.
but they are unique. as all different boxes are.

is the CEL lamp glowing running, Check engine lamp
PDC fuse 16 ok (4L,aw4) TCM power, must be good at all times.

is the throttle valve cable to transmission stuck out?
if it does, the TCM and trans will either go nuts, or shift way late.

the TCM shifts using solenoids, we check that the signals to said solenoid actually do go to the correct voltage levels
in to 3rd. (you said stuck in 2nd)
if that is ok, then the TCM did it job and the problem is INSIDE the box. end story, we use remote test meters to monitor wires driving.

1992 YJ can only shift into 3rd & 4th gear. No Reverse

The same thing happend to one of my wranglers, a 95 yj 4cyl 2.5 liter. The "Aisin AX-5" is the transmission that jeep used on the yj and tj 4cyl and 83 cherokee and up 4cyl, and the "Aisin AX-15"was used on some of the 6cyl models. Both are a "light duty" transmission according to the transmission manufacturer. As everyone knows, A jeep is no light duty vehicle, the shifting slider, a fork like item slides the gears back and forth over the drive and output gears to change the gears. and with heavy use or lack of maintanice they can break, they also can break cause of the cheap casting they used in the tranny. Other problems happen in those trannys too. The only thing is to tear the tranny apart and find out what failed and replace. I did this on the kitchen table ofer a day off. being the up own an early 90s yj, If you are one who doesn't work on their own car, I would find a good garage that is good with jeeps, they are not to expencive to fix, and when they are taken care of, will be a joy to own.
I hope this helps, Jeep ownership is a great thing.
