Re: tranny oil
I personally wont use anything other than mopar fluids in my T/C or Transmission. Have the Mopar ATF+4 in the trans, and the NV whatever it is for the transfer case. Chrysler's are pretty darn picky when you use different types of "equavilent" fluids from what i hear.

Mobil 1 5w-30 for the motor with a mobil 1 filter is also what i use.

Re: tranny oil
what about motor oil

Re: tranny oil
Mobil 1 FTMFW but really any good synthetic is probably fine. I even saw the srt8 engineers chat other day and they said the same thing. penzoil, valv, mobil 1, so long as it was their best synthetic, they didnt seem to care.

trans said you need this Mopar® ATF +4, type 9602
so any good brand ATF +4 at the parts store will work fine.

Re: tranny oil
I think I'm going to use Valvoline synthetic ATF+4 when I do my transmission. I do use the Mopar fluid for the TC though.

Re: tranny oil
Just got the trans fluid and filters changed a month a go at the dealers with Mopar ATF4+.

Motor oil is fully synth Mobil1.

Re: tranny oil
For the tranny on the WJ, I used Mopar ATF+4. I thought I read the only other is Valvoline "something" for Mopar trannys.

Re: tranny oil
If you are using anything other than Mopar's ATF +4 in a Chrysler tranny, you are asking for trouble down the road. I currently own 3 such trannies and run nothing but the real deal in each of them. One just went out at 190k miles, one is still running strong at 100k miles and the 3rd is too new to talk about. When I took the 01WJ in for a tranny rebuild, the guy at the shop was really surprised that it was still the original one with no work having been done other than changing the Mopar ATF +4 every 30k miles. Claimed he usually saw them coming in at around 90 or 100k miles. The web is full of horror stories about these electronically controlled transmissions and early solenoid or band failures. More often than not, if you dig deep enough, you'll find that the folks were using something they were told was ATF+4 complient.

Now in the old AW4 in my 00XJ and a few before that, I run just about any mercon/dexron ATF. That tranny is bulletproof and the ATF used doesn't seem to matter ......

Re: tranny oil
Amsoil is ATF +4 compliant so hopefully I should be alright.
