Good morning guys! Finally back in the jeep family again after 10 years...
Well I picked up an 04 Sahara with 58k original miles. The stock radio still had the protective plastic film, and the installed soft top still had the instructions perfectly preserved and rolled up in the cloth. In fact the hard top had never been removed. I honestly believe this jeep may have sat in a garage for year without being driven.
So here's my question -- What do I need to change out fluid wise to ensure it's all up to standards? And if I do change out everything, can someone point me to a general consensus of brands that coincide with the required fluids?
Engine oil, radiator flush, diff front and back, t-case, transmission. By age alone does that warrant the fluid changes?
Standard or auto ? If standard shift, use mopar branded oil. It just works.
2004, so you got coil pack over plugs....NGK plugs.
Coolant, don't get too worked up about HOAT, prestone makes one that is labeled for jeep.
Brake fluid, bleed and flush away all the old stuff.
T-case, ATF any popular brand should be fine.
Don't forget the friction modifyer if you have limited slip,rear diff...Sahara , so good chance you got a dana44!
Don't forget the check clutch fluid... I have never changed it before ?,
Don't forget your blinker fluid.
Any pics of your new gem?
