Flooded: Do i need any fluid changes?
So my jeep was submerged in some brown river water today in the school parkling lot after it flooded. the water was right under my bottom door seal, no water got in but it obviously covered the whole diff and my exhaust was submerged for about 30 minutes. the jeep still runs tho. i was thinking to just change the diff fluid (rear. its a 2wd) and run a can a seafoam thought the tank? its a 2001 with the 4.0 and a d35 rear
Trans fluid should be red and smell sweet. I would not drive or even start the Jeep until you verify both fluids are good or change them both with their respective filters.

New Mexico Driving Rules...
- As a general rule, the vehicle most in need of a significant amount of bodywork (for which the driver is most likely uninsured) always has the right of way.
- Never use directional signals when changing lanes. They only serve to give away your next move, causing most NM drivers to speed up and not let you in. In fact, use of directional signals within most large NM city limits is actual illegal.
- NM law states that at least 50% of all paved surfaces within the state must be under construction at any one time. In all construction zones, at least half of the available lanes must be closed, regardless of whether any actual construction is be accomplished or not. Construction signs shall be regularly repositioned in order to warn drivers about upcoming lane closures immediately after they pass the last exit before traffic backups.
- Driving through constructions zones with upcoming lane closures is a popular game in NM. It’s called the "speed up and pass as many cars as you can, then see how close to the lane closure you can squeeze back into traffic before hitting any of the orange construction barrels" game.
x3 yep just did the same thing on mine.

If the rear vent was where it was suppose to be in the frame rail, you didnt get anything in the axle...as long as it wasnt hot

Check your rear differential. I know it has a vent tube, but many of the rear ends have a rubber push in plug for the rear differential fill hole. Water can get around that stupid plug... TRUST ME I KNOW FOR A FACT.
i might as well just change all the fluids ... im not sure what to do about the water in the transmission . im not sure how to get it all out . and should i just change my every fluid ? and any gaskets while im at it ?
