Hi everyone,

This is my first post, I hope someone can help. I have a 95 YJ that desperately needs some new gear oil. It is the AX-5 manual transmission since it is a 95 with the stock tranny.

I have searched up and down and read up and down and here is what I have heard:

Jeep reccomends GL-5 fluid and that it can eat the syncros (read this in many places)
Many jeepers reccomend redline MTL or MT-90
People use synchromesh
Redline (the company) reccomends 75W90 NS (I called them)

I have no idea, the jeep has 100K on it and I don't know the last time the tranny fluid was changed. My biggest thing is not destroying the transmission. So I am looking for a safe choice that will provide good protection and not eat the brass synchros.

Given the mileage and all this stuff what do you guys reccomend?

Thanks a lot!

p.s. I will call a dealer soon to see what they have to say...

I've used MT90 for about 3 years in my AX5 without any problems.

How about for at completely stock '97 XJ 4.0L with the standard 4-speed automatic. I seriously need to change my tranny fluid (I don't think the guy before me changed it ever, 109k miles). Also, while we're on the subject (and not meaning to hi-jack the thread) but what about t-case and diffs.

Use Dextron III Mecron in the AW4 (4 spd auto) and in the t-case. I run full synthetic 75W-140 in the diffs, but I think the FSM calls for 80W-90.
