The drain plug is on the bottom at the rear of the tranny. The fill plug is on the passenger side, toward the rear of the tranny, about halfway up. You need some large allen wrenches to remove these. I THINK a 15mm and a 17mm but I'm not absolutely sure about that off the top of my head. When I get home tonight, if no one has answered that part, I will check and get back to you.

EDIT: The FSM says you need 3.17 pints, or fill it to the bottom of the fill hole. I used nearly four pints and didn't reach the bottom of the fill hole. So if you use all of both quarts and it doesn't reach the fill hole, don't panic, you'll be fine.

Nsg-370

The filler plug takes a 14mm hex bit socket and the drain plug takes a 17mm. It used the biggest part of two qts. when I changed mine, maybe a pint left over if that. I put a small amount of pipe dope on the drain plug threads to make sure it didn't leak, don't want to over tighten the plug in aluminum. Good luck,, it's an easy job!!

P.S. fill in your profile so we all know what your rig is.

solo, I used a squeeze bulb/hose on the jugs to fill. It'd be far easier with 2, one holding a tube in the tranny, other holding the jug, vented.

Just a quick hint... Since the jeep is pretty new you shouldn't run into this problem, but, whenever I change anything with a fill hole and drain hole I always loosen the FILL HOLE FIRST...just as a precaution, because if you drain it first then find out you can't get the fill plug out, you're in trouble! Just a little tip.

Fill 'er up

I was racking my brains this morning when I wrote my post on what I used to fill the tranny back up. I used a piece of 3/8" clear hose that just slides on the tappered bottle cap. I first slid the hose on the tappered cap to see where to cut it off, then cut off the cap. That way it gives you some options on holding the bottle up when filling the tranny. Hand gets kind of tired squeezing the oil out, but I like that better than cleaning up $$$ oil off the floor.
