Anyone have experience changing ATF in Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo , 2 wd, auto with V8 engine. I understand there is a spin on filter inside the pan.

Thanks

Yes

I assume the 545RFE


Get a mopar pancake and the cooler return line spin on.

I put a B&M bulkhead fitting in the pan to make draining/refill easier.

I use the Amsoil ATF in mine. 02 WJ with 4.7

ONLY use Mopar ATF+4 in any Chrysler transmission.

Don't worry too much about the fluid. If you can find a cheep ATF+4 that is great, but multi vehicle ATF is good to if it says compatible. I used a multi in my 545RFE and it worked fantastic.

cool thumbsup

The good news is that you can get an aftermarket pan that has a drain plug, which will make future ATF changes much easier smile

Even if you still insist on dropping the pan, having a drain plug to drain the pan first will still make things much better and less messy, rather than having a bunch of used oil splash all over. Drain from the drain plug, then remove the pan, then change the filter.

Redline C+ is the best ATF to sue in any transmission calling for ATF+4 even though it is not officially licensed.

I would only use an ATF that meets or exceeds ATF+4 Spec. Comparable does not work for me. Fluid is cheap compared to a Trans.

This ATF pan actually has a drain plug on it...so would make it easier to drain before taking off the pan to change the filters.

Those are still using the RFE-series transmissions? I thought they went to the W580?

Supertech ATF+4 is great stuff at a great price. Your only wasting money going with the more expensive Mopar fluid.
