The fill plug is on the left hand side of the diff casing just rearwards of where the left hand drive shaft exits the gearbox. You will need a 10mm square drive (a 3/8" ratchet is close, but you have to make sure it stays in the square) to undo it. The box should be filled to this level.

The clutches on the gears are very worn out - the 2 and 3 are the most used so they wear out the fastest. The gearbox will have to be completely rebuild. And you should do it as soon as possible, the longer you wait the greater the damage gets.

My 97 ford exlorer will not go into gear except when I put it in 4 wheel low. transmission has been making a popping noise for a while.


If it won't go into gear, sounds like you've run out of transmission fluid. That grinding sound when you turn the shaft by hand, sounds like you've run it for a bit too long without fluid and wore the gears down. Start it up and check the trans fluid with dipstick. If none on stick, put some in it. You may have already ruined the transmission though. But you never know. Try putting fluid in. Might work.(for a while)

Idling rough when put into foward/reverse gears


Check clutch master and slave cylinder, and throwout bearing.

If automatic, change transmission fluid and go from there.

Hard shifting manual transmission - warm/hot


check the clutch operation especially the m/cylinder for failure. The fluid and the master cyl. is probably not disengaging the clutch enough. the rears will not necessarily grate as the synchros are working overtime to spin the gears for alignment because the clutch shaft is still moving under power from the engine.

Jeep Wrangler 1998 straight drive has difficult times going into reverse gear. I don't drive it every day,usually towing it behind my RV. It seems better when I drive it more,but is still difficult to...


if this is a 5 speed manual transmission...all you need to do before putting your jeep into reverese is puting it into first gear and then shifting it to reverse to avoid any grinding or problems shifting into reverse...this isn't a problem just a poor jeep design by not installing an extra gear to eliminate this grinding or shifting problem

Shifting problems


hi, first thing is to check the fluid. if the fluid is normal in level, this is a ratio issue with the gears. this means that, you are experiencing transmission failure. The filter may be damaged causing the fluid to not circulate. this is damaging the torque converter as well. this is called slipping. if the fluid is low, this can be an issue as well and, by adding fluid to the fill mark will dissolve the gear problems and slippage.

Reverse gear has grinding noise...?


Have them flush the fluid out under warranty and put in new fluid, and have them bleed the clutch lines in case air is getting in there. Audi and VW claim lifetime transmission fluid but it's BS - I've changed relatively low mile fluid from these cars and it was horrendous. It's possible that the fluid itself is causing trouble, but it's more likely that it is a synchro problem. If it was a clutch issue, you should have problems with more than just reverse gear - a clutch simply engages and disengages the engine and transmission, regardless of which gear it is. The problem (if not fixed by fluid) is in the transmission, and being under warranty, don't accept another "suggestion" like they're giving you. Changing your clutch isn't gonna do it.
