The owners manual is not correct, by reason of omission. It does not specifically state ATF+4 for the NV245, it simply says "Transfer Case - ATF+4", which is for the NV140 only.

DO NOT use ATF+4 for the NV-245 t-case!!!

The 2005 owners manuals have never been updated since being issued in 2004. But the dealer online factory service manuals are constantly updated in years following...


From the latest revision of the 2005 Jeep factory service manual:

TRANSFER CASE

- Recommended lubricant for the NV140 transfer case is Mopar« ATF+4, Automatic Transmission Fluid.

- Recommended lubricant for the NV245 transfer case is Mopar« NV245/247 Transfer Case Fluid (1.8L / 3.8 pts. / 1.9 quarts).

Re: Transfer case fluid

Thank you both for your answer. Iwent under the jeep yesterday and looked at the transfer case there was a silver and red round label, couldn't see it good cause of where it was, but I was able to see J245, is this the model number of the T-Case?

The dealer usually has these products for $15 to $20 dollars a bottle. What is the best ATF+4 equivalent that I can use for these 2 parts that meet the Mopar standards?
IIRC, there was an error in some of the earlier WK owner's manuals. Yours could be one of them. QT-II and QD-II take the MOPAR NV245/247 Transfer Case Fluid. Takes 2 quarts. Used to be every 30K miles, then 60K miles. Now, mine is 102K miles, but I still do it at 60K miles so I see that there is not dirt, water, or shavings in the lubricant.

Refer to: Jeep Grand Cherokee WK - Maintenance information and schedules

BTW: Milous always gives good advice......................

Re: Transfer case fluid

Thanks for your advice. I haven't done it yet but I intend to check the fluid level in the T-case. But a mechanic friend of mine was under the jeep and told me to put it in 4x4, he held the T-case motor and said it didn't do anything, no vibration or movement. Could the motor be bad?
