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.

1996 jeep grand cherokee limited the thing runs like a champ it is just slipping in reverse, is there a adjustment for this? has a 5.2L engine


If the trans fluid isn't low. Then check for a burnt smell...either way ur trans is going out. There are things u can do to prolong it's life. Change the fluid and filter. Come to a complete stop before changing from a drive gear to reverse or reverse to a drive gear. Hope this helps !

Was going around 60-65 and it wouldn't shift into 4th or OD - the O/D light came on. Did ok going lower speeds. Fluid was 1/4 quart low. 1994 Grand Cherokee Laredo straight 6


sounds like either switch wasn't on, or the transmission is starting to slip. The fluid was just a touch low, but how was the color? smell? if its dark in color, or smells burnt, then you need to have the tranmssion itself replaced. flushing the fluid and filter at this time will not help it out. good luck!
