Changing NV3550 fluid.

To start, sorry guys for the beginner question. I as still young and want to learn.

Anyways, i just purchased enough RP fluids to replace everything in the jeep. I've done the motor oil, and the NV3550 is next on the list.

Where can i find some instructions on the procedure? I have the FSM for 04, but i cannot seem to locate anything about transmission fluid change.

Also are there any special tools i will need?



Thanks in advanced guys,
Kelvyn

try stu-offroad.com
he's got a write up on how to change the gear oil in a nx-15 trans. Pretty straight forward procedure and also will work just the same for your trans. Drain plug and fill plug might be in slightly different locations though.

It is a really easy procedure--I just did mine last week. There is a drain bolt on the bottom and a fill plug on the side. Remove the fill plug before removing the drain plug, then drain the fluid into a pan. Once it is drained replace the plug and use a bottle pump to pump new RP synchromax in until it begins to run out the fill hole. That it is it. Now, the plugs take a 17mm allen wrench, which is very hard to find. What I did was take a 17mm socket to the hardware store and find a bolt that had a 17mm head. Then I tightened two nuts on each other at the end and simply stuck the head of the bolt into the plug and put a socket on the two nuts. This cost me about a buck--far cheaper than the cost of the 17mm allen wrench or bit.

Thanks for all the help guys, i should get the change done this weekend. I'm pretty sure i have the 17mm allen wrench, but I will check my tools. So the only other special tool i'll need is a bottle pump then?

Cheers,
Kelvyn

Correct. FYI - FSM specifies 2qts, but its really more like 2.3-2.5 to the fill hole.

Yep, when i ordered, i checked with my fellow jeepforum'ers and i was told 3 quarts for the NV3550. I ordered 4 quarts, because the last thing i would need is for a bottle to fall over and then i'd have to pay the CRAZY border charges again for "importing hazerdous materials"
