The two lines from the transmission is the cooler lines,one is the inlet and the other the outlet.
If the rad and cooler stand vertically then the out line from the transmisson must connected to the top so that the transmission fluid can be cooled and returned to the transmission.

    Hi! U can differentiate the inlet from the outlet by turning the engine to start and which one of the line the fluid delivered from is the outlet.

Where is reverse light switch located on a 1994 jeep grand cherokee

If it's an automatic, it is a combination switch located on the passenger side of the transmission, on the opposite end of the rod the linkage attaches to on the driver side. The switch is expensive but often can be taken apart and cleaned, but you need to be careful when taking it apart because it's easy to have the stuff inside fall out. Instructions for r&r are in both chilton or haynes manuals. If you want to replace the switch try a scrapyard one first as a new one is around $200.00. Make sure the bulb sockets have a good ground before replacing the switch. The ground wires rot off perhaps more frequently than the switches fail.

What spec oil is used in the transfer case of a 1996 chev tahoe

The transfer case shows to use Automatic Transmission Fluid. I would personally use a full synthetic transmission fluid as well. I showed three transfer case options for that vehicle and depending on which one you have it will hold anywhere from 1.5 quarts to just a little over 2 quarts depending on which one you have.

Transmission Speed Sensor Inconsistency

Check the 10 wire connector going into the transmission for water or corrosion. This could cause inadvertant shifting but would also probably set the check engine light. The throttle position sensor could also cause this. Speed sensors screw into the transmission from the outside and would cause a limp in condition where it wouldn't shift out of second gear.
