Hey Max, I am planning on changing the fluids in my tranny and axles today, when are you sending the helper over?


Miss Amy's sensibilities and the language filter prevent me from telling you what I really think about you.

That's interesting... I have never heard of changing the filter before draining the oil pan. I guess it's just the way my father taught me that I drain the pan first then change the filter...

Mean Max (and/or any other knowledgeable person):

I have a new (to me) jeep. Before winter (and before it sees heavy driving) I want to make sure I change all the key fluids. I don't really know how well it was taken care of by the previous owner, but it seems okay. I have a standard transmission.

I plan on changing the oil, break fluid, power steering fluid, clutch fluid, break fluid.
Am I missing anything? I went to the FAQ, but number of the links appear to be broken, so if there are any useful guides out there, I'd love to know about them.

Thanks

Are you going to change the brake fluid twice?

The gear oil (75/90 or 80/90) is for the differential's right? I saw a great guide for that here on for forum....

I am very un-mechanical - what is the difference between the transmission & transfer case, fluid & location wise?

hey max, i noticed your oil gauge actually registers your pressure. mine doesnt register at all, unless i driving and then it only goes up to the first tick mark. do you know whether it would be my sending unit or the guage itself?

Turn the key to the "on" position, disconnect the oil pressure sender wire & touch it to "ground" on the engine block or frame. The gauge should go to the maximum reading. If it does, then the sender unit is bad.

I have always done it that way. not sure who told me so. I did it once by draining first and then the filter, I got a bath of oil out of the filter. Not gonna do that again.
