Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
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.
