Cheap fluid. Use the cheapest you can(super tech from WalMart). Drain and fill as normal. Then drain again, leave the plug out and add another quart or two to flush. Put the plug back in, and refill. Drive about 25 miles, and drain again. Leave the plug out, and run some more thru to flush. Put the plug back in, and refill. Drive 100-200 miles, then do another drain and refill. At least that's how I'd do it. I did a manual trans the same way, and everything worked out. I might have went a little overboard with continuous flushing, but better safe then sorry

I made the mistake with my transmission of only flushing once. That cost me. Unfortunately the only ATF+4 I can get locally is the Castrol one which is $8.95 a liter. However I can get ATF fluid cheap, for the flush where the plug is out can I use that and then fill with ATF+4?

The best thing about having bought a mostly built Jeep?

When your lap top and smart phone decide to meet the great bit maker in the same week and you aren't going "Dammit, there went my lift fund again!"

Im not familiar enough with atf+3/4 to say. But I think the problem is with mixing the two. My trans takes atf+4, and I've heard to never ever ever mix with regular atf. I think it will spontaneously combust or sonething

The intent was to not keep it in just to flush the water out but if thwre is an issue with the two mixing then probably better to play it safe

ATF+4 is backward compatible with ATF+3...

Was aware of pulling the fill plug first as it would be very sucky if you could drain it but not fill it.
So I should have no issue introducing ATF+3 temporarily?

If you're ever in that situation, you can fill the transfer case through the speedometer sending unit hole.

Not at all, if you can find some. It's been gone from the store shelves for quite a few years...

Smart idea for the speedo hole never would have thought of that

What about normal ATF or Dextron III?

care to elaborate? This +3 +4 crap confuses me. The trans/tcase normally calls for +3, but they don't make it anymore correct? Or at least I never seem to see it

The transfer case wont care, an automatic transmission might care.

Google it, lots of information on the web about how the two are compatible...
