YJ Transmission Fluid (MT90?) ,,,, metal piece when changing fluid

I have been having trouble shifting from 1st to 2nd etc...in 4wd



1)what type of transmission fluid should you use in a 93 YJ?

2) also trying to figure out if I have found the bolt for the fill hole, opposite the drain plug and takes a 15/16 wrench.......is this the right bolt?


3) the drain plug has a magnet, how much or how big is too big of a piece of metal to find? I am a little concerned because I found a small piece that is about 1/2" long

My fill hole AX15 is on the same side of the drain hole. Higher up.

What transmission? Like I said my AX 15 on a 93 YJ with a 4.0L is on the drivers side. The drain is down low and the fill is higher up.

I use mt-90 now but I think I had less noise when I ran mobil one 5-30 synthetic. Dealer told me to run regular 10-30 motor oil. I had some 5-30 mobil one laying around in the shop so I tried it, the ax-15 was near silent. Now with mt-90 a little more noise. I think I will go back to mobil one next oil change.
