Re: Transmission Flush - Good or Bad?

Do those drains work good on an oem pan? Always thought about trying it, but afraid if it were to start leaking. I'd rather rely on a series of threads (a bung) than a nylon (?) washer/gasket for sealing, or maybe I'm thinking of something else.

If it is a Jeep dealer, show him a hard copy of the TSB (I found the link):

http://www.wkjeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wk_2600109.pdf

then ask him why it is still being done in the face of Chrysler's official position.

With all of the routine things not being accomplished properly these days at service facilities, I'm v-e-r-y hesitant to let an unknown worker introduce fluids of suspect quality into my 545RFE transmission. Think I'd rather just have the filters and half the fluid changed out at a normal drain procedure.

Re: Transmission Flush - Good or Bad?

Drop the pan, change the fluid and filter. Use the best possible ATF you can find. I use Mobel 1. It's not that difficult to change and it will save you tuns in maintenance costs down the road. While you are under there, don't forget to grease all your ball joints, U-joints, etc. A little prevention goes a long ways.

At the beginning, the TSB lists all of the Chrysler models and years it applies to. All of those shown in the link are model year 2005 or later. Recommend you check the WJJeeps.com site to see if you are included in a comparable one for pre-2005.
