I haven't put any in it. I checked to make sure it was full but have not changed it. The jeep has 138,000 miles on it. I'm going into this blind hoping to find a lite to follow. lol

Drain it and put in 10w-30 motor oil. See if that helps. Also drain the old fluid into a clean container. Look for brass in the oil. Your syncros maybe on the way out. Do the fluid change before spending any $$ on the master/slave. It may cure your problem.

Ok so I'm going to flush my tranny out tomorrow nite and replace with 10w30 oil to see if thats the problem. I have been checking prices on prefilled m/c s/c combo and found quadretec has it for 160.00+26.00 ground shipping. I can get one from dodge dealer for 197.00 next day. Is the quadratec a better quality for 10 bucks less if that is the next step? Which I truly believe it will be. I talked to the po and he said the mech that installed it would not warranty the installation as he no longer owns the jeep.

Ok I got to thinking, while waiting on my daughter to get out of her teen small group at church, how much oil will it take to fill the tranny when I flush and replace and how do I get the oil in there. I couldn't think of a way to get it past the tc skid plate to the fill hole. IDK. It's not like gear oil bottle with a hose so hmmm. I know one of you can tell me and so I can realize my idiocy,lol

I used Mean Max's trick/ technique. Remove the shifter boot or whole tin trans cover with the boot and all if you have no carpet, remove the shifter from the trans with the 1/4 push down and twist. Then aftre you drain the old fluid replace the drain plug, remove the fill plug and then pour the 10w-30 right in thru the shifter hole. Stop when it starts to run out of the fill plug. I bought a 5 qt jug of Walmart super tech stuff. It takes just over 3qt's IIRC..

Ok so I should buy 1 5 qt jug and another single qt bottle since it is a good idea to flush it with new oil then drain again then put the oil in to stay correct? I just wanna make sure it'sd done rite the first time if this is the culpret. Hope you understand the multiple questions.

It's fine. Sure I'd fill it up then take it for a short ride then dump it and refill. Try to drain that old fluid when the trans is warm. the short ride with the new 10-30 will help get the rest out. The final fill should have you set. just the short 10 mi ride I took my Jeep on today and the trans shifts smooth. I dumped out gear oil before the fill. I'll probably run it a few weeks and dump it again. 138,000 and it's probably the stuff that it left the factory with in 92. Oh the drain plug is magnetic. Be sure and clean the ball of grey metal dust off of it before you reinstall it.

Ok this is a bummer. I flushed the tranny with 10w30 oil and its still doing the samething, but it's doesn't seem to be as bad as before. I am gonna order the m/c-s/c prefilled from rockauto and replace the aftermarket junk thats in there now. If this doesn't cure what's ailling us, looks like I'll be doing an extensively detailed rebuild of an ax-5 tranny. I haven't found one thru all of my searches on someone detailing this particular tranny. Will update this post after I get the new parts in. Thanks to MeanMax for your help so far and hope to get more advice from you later.
