Thanks it worked. Yep, looks like stuff listed till 67K miles then nada...don't mean it was not done but not at the dealer.

I'll probably tackle the front diff tomorrow, and maybe the transfer case.

When I did mine it took 8 or 8.5 quarts of atf-4.No pan gasket it is rtv.You may want todo transfer case fluid that you have to buy from the dealer.Also the diff. fluid that takes 80-140 syn. gear lube and a additive that you have to get from the dealer.

Diffs take 75-140, I bought all Mopar, except the guy told me to go buy the Diff fluid from the autoparts store. He said the Mopar one is made by Mobil One and no reason for it to cost $28 a Quart. Advanced had it for $18.99 ($9 a quart savings).

I probably could have spent even less and not got the trans fluid either, but as I was there anyways not a huge deal. I think I'll get the spin on trans filter too (I assume all the trans have this?? (545RFE here)).

Yep, transfer case on mine takes the special stuff...parts guy claimed just over 3 quarts *shrug* No one here likes to list what you should buy. At least the parts guy said I could take back what I don't use...I'll be up in Denver next Friday so I'll just take what I don't use then, probably pickup the trans spin on filter and that extra gallon of ATF+4.

This is a write up for a SRT8 transfer case.I think 1.8 quarts of fluid for the transfer is what mine took.

I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure I've read on here that you aren't supposed to flush.

My '06 Hemi WK is nearing 60k miles so I thought I would save a buck and do the 60k maintenance myself. I went to the dealer and got a printout of the required maintenance and have been checking everything off as I go.

Unlike my modified '99 Cherokee XJ, I plan to use Mopar parts and fluids for everything on my Grand Cherokee. So far I have drained the front and rear diff fluid and used Mopar sealant for the diff covers. I also had to replace the front differential solonoid actuator and wiring harness to clear up a "service 4wd system" light.

I have the transfer case fluid that will be changed this weekend, and have done the air filter and other quick stuff.

For the Transmission flluid, I plan to drain the pan (and change filters), refill through the dip, then disconnect the return line from the tranny cooler. I'll have someone start the engine, then shut it off, drain about two quarts from the system, then refill. I'll repeat that process until the fluid runs clear and bright red. This will ensure the old fluid from the torque converter is drained without having to flush the system under pressure.

I've done this with my XJ and it works well. I tow alot and want to drain as much of the old fluid that I can. Anybody else do this?

Anyone make a different transmission drain pan with a drain plug in it??? Might be worth the money...seeing as they want this thing serviced so much you would of thought they would have had a drain plug on it. It would have made it quicker for their techs to change and not as messy.

Edited to say:
I came across this one, anyone run it on a 2005 Jeep GC Hemi???

Here you go. I am thinking of getting one for my WK for the next fluid/filter change. Also may invest in the shift kit at the same time. I already have the line pressure booster installed.

Grandoneer-

Do you feel a more positive shift with that kit? For 49 clams you cant go wrong with a plug in pressure booster..

All:

When seating that transmission seal on the non-screw in filter, I found that a 25mm socket/ 6" extension/ hammer (tapping lightly) worked perfectly..

OK,
I have a statement and a few questions, I have the 545RFE with the 3.0 CRD, but mine has NO DIPSTICK!!! Just a plastic cap/cover that says service only by Mercedes. I bought my ATF+4 (full synth Valvoline) from NAPA and they said 6.1 qts. The shop I went looked up and it said 13qts. What do I do? Without a dipstick? My statment is that my tranny has a drain plug!!! It is 5mm hex. As for the diffs they had Valvoline 75-140 full syn and I had to by friction modifiers.

Oh, one more question. Does anybody know exactly where the transmission range sensor is exactly? I get an intermintant code 0705 when the tranny won't shif out of first on occasion. I have read here that the sensor should be clean before possibly wasting money on he one.

i dont think u can flush the tranny by urself
only change the fluid thats in the pan and change the filter

when u go to the dealer the flush it, meaning they pump more than ur tranny needs to make sure that all the old oil is out

when u change it urself ur only getting rid of whats in the pan and filters
