2008 Jeep Cherokee Laredo - fluid service "Quantities?"

I have a 2008 jeep cherokee laredo 4.7l w/ NV245 transfer Case

In the Owners Manual it states what Types of fluid for each hole but not "How Much" per hole.

Can anyone give me the quantities to put in each hole when servicing?

1) Front Differential

2) NV245 Transfer Case

3) Rear Differential

Thank You


Thank You,
Bo

I'm new to WK's, but this looks like it has everything.

Typically for a gearbox with a fill port, like the front diff, T-case and rear axle, you just make sure the vehicle is level, then fill until the fluid level inside gets to the level of the fill port

Of course also need to make sure you have the limited slip additive in the diff & axle.

Yes, I read online it is a 4oz bottle of additive - goes in the Rear Diff Only, from what i have read - so that means we have a locker or limited-slip in the rear which could be handy in some terrain.

Thank You,
Bo

You need the additive in the front and the rear, but only if you have QuadraDrive II.

If OP has the NV245, then he has QDII, right?

not necessarily

NV140 transfer case + open axles = Quadra-Trac I
NV245 t.c. + open axles = Quadra-Trac II
NV245 t.c. + elsd axles = Quadra-Drive II

Going from memory I believe Quadra-Trac refers to the two different tcases and Quadra-Drive refers to the axles. So you may see both listed on the build sheet.


If you have QDII you have an NV245, but having an NV245 doesn't guarantee QDII, if that makes sense.

FWIW.
In my open QT11 Diffs i use Amsoil 75w-140 synthetic severe gear.

My NV245 has Petronas Power Gear 4. This is what UK Jeep dealers use. Amsoil have an equivalent product.

Interesting!!

I am learning something new right now - I did Not read about that these could have a quadra-trac II <or> quadra-drive II.
I have a copy of the Build Sheet, these are some things that are on the build sheet, written exactly as it is on the build sheet...

Quadra_Trac II Full-Time, Active 4WD
Four Wheel Drive (4WD)/(4X4)
200MM Front Axle
213MM Rear Axle
Conventional Differential Frt Axle
Conventional Differential Rear Axle
4.7L V8 Engine
5-Spd Automatic 545RFE Transmission
3.73 Rear Axle Ratio
Trailer Tow Group IV

Does this rig have Open, Limited Slip or Locking differential(s)?

***I do Not see: quadr-drive II written on my 6 pages of build sheets.

Thank You,
Bo

Ok... I just ran across some info on this site from some years back, on Another Way how to tell.

12 bolt rear diff cover = QDII
10 bolt rear diff cover = QTII

My rig has the 10 bolt rear diff cover

My vehicles Build sheet does Not read: Limited Slip nor Locker so I can probably assume this rig has Open Differentials?

Thank You,
Bo
