Yesterday 1st gear started to slip. Immediately I checked the fluid level and could not feel any fluid. So instead of trying to just fill it. I decided to drain it.
Took the pan off and drained what seemed to be about 2 1/2 quarts of the blackest goo known to man. There was a very very minute bit of metal on the plus.. nothing big at all, more like residue. Very very old.. This must be the first time in many many years it has been drained. I vought this jeep on Xmas day.
So now on to he filling. Went to Napa, got the recommended 3 quarts of 90 weight and a hand pump...
Started to fill it and didn't even get a quart in and it started draining out the side. Pushed the hose in more to make sure it wasn't coming out and still it keeps coming out of the side like it is filled up.. I checked the angle of the jeep and then pushed it to a point so the front is lower than the back. Same thing!!
Well it got dark and I could not finish the job
Why could it be doing this. Seems backed up some how.
I plan on doing a rebuild with a couple of friends in the next month. All gaskets and gearing.
I could use any tips on this. Much appreciated.
