Default Helpin my bro change his Trans fluid on his TJ

ITs a 99 sport and Im guessing it has the AX-15 so I have him getting some redline gear lube. Ive done my AX-5 plenty of time and just remove the shifter to refill it. Do the AX-15s use the same design or do I need to grab a suction gun. Basically I am asking are the AX5-15 the same in regards to changing the fluid?

it is either the 15 or the 5 is it a 2.5 or 4.0? I filled mine from the top when it was out with out a proplem. But you have the brass sycros in there make sure that will not eat them up.....

drain plug on bottom center of trans. fill plug on drivers side bout half way up.
dont use 10w30 or it will be a non syncronized tranny real soon. get good lube that meets the specs like redline, royal purple, or castrol. you can go synthetic if you like, or mineral to save few bucks. its the rating that matters. gl5 gl6 ect.. look in the owners manual to see what it takes. i used redline mt90 if i remember correctly??

gl4-5 have sulfur that eat the synchros, reg oil does not have much. The older trans' called for GL3 that had low sulfur, but its not available anymore. Chrysler now instructs dealers to use 10w-30 on the jap transmissions (ax-5-15) from what I have read. Thats what we used and its working great thus far. shifts better than mine does with mt-90 or royal purple and was about half the price. I know what ill be using for my next fluid change
