kahl452: I'm glad this helped you. That's the reason I posted this. It's not that hard, and it'll save a ton of money rather than going to a trans shop.

How much transmission fluid did you put in yours? In the owners manual it says 9.6L but last time I filled it its 7 quarts and it was over max. Since actually fixing it. I only put in 6 quarts. It seems fine.

Search is your best friend.

I think mine took 6 quarts. I took a tip from ericthecarguy (does great youtube vehicle repair videos). I knew that it would take a minimum of 4 quarts, so that's what I put in. When I was able to start it up, with the jeep sitting level, I let it get to operating temp, put it in neutral, put on the parking brake (or chock the wheels), and checked the level. I kept adding and checking until it was full.
There's no way it'll take 9.6 liters, that's over 10 quarts. Maybe if the trans is bone dry, including the torque converter and fluid cooler. But for just a filter change, it's 5 or 6 quarts.

As an update I did this and everything went well. She seems to be downshifting normally again. I forgot to replace the output speed sensore unit, the one with the 1" socket. Can I do this after I put fluid back in or is it gonna pour out of there like a siv????

I was also very pleased with this kit. Worked great for me.

@Gibby - that's a very easy swap. Expect a few tablespoons of fluid; not too bad.

The piston is part of the transmission. You just swap out the spring.
