A Day Of Jeep Maintenance

Between wheeling season starting and my Jeep passing 100,000 miles, I had to take care of some things. For my 2013 Jeep Rubicon I changed my oil and oil filter, transfer case (NV241OR Rock-Trac) fluid, and transmission (W5A580) fluid and filter. I planned on installing a set of skid plates as well but I ran out of time. The 3.6L Pentastar took 6 quarts of Mobile 1 5W-20 and I use a Mopar oil filter, Part# MO-744. The transfer case needed 2.1 quarts of ATF+4 (I use Valvoline Synthetic ATF+4) and the transmission tooK 4 quarts of ATF+4 to top off. I didn’t flush the transmission so there was still fluid in the transmission cooler and lines.

Here’s the transmission filter and gasket I used:

  1. I was always told that it's not a good idea to change the transmission fluid it can damage the transmission. I have a 2011 jeep wrangler and I want to change my fluid out.

  2. Great video as usual! When I dropped my trans pan I added a drain plug to it. After the first trans filter change there really isn't a need to ever change it again. Every 20K miles I drain out about 6 to 7 quarts of ATF and top it off. After the second time the fluid color looked much better.

  3. I really liked this video. Great to see the kids around as you are working on the Jeep. Gives a real sense of a family man, his Jeep, and his family. Thanks for taking the time to make this with little ones running around.

  4. At 3:28 where the heck are you pouring that stuff? I have looked everywhere in my bay on where to pour my damn ATF and I cannot locate anything!

  5. Great video! We're due for a maintenance day soon as well. SMORR in September and MOAB in October, so we're doing a lot of the same things at different times. Keep up the good work!

  6. How did you know how much trans fluid to put back in? How do you check the trans fluid level? How many ft lbs did the trans bolts need? I have so many questions

  7. You KNOW how to remove all that OIL on the garage floor without any mess at all…? Kitty litter and a Brick. Just rub the brick over the kitty litter and vacuum it up. ZERO garage stain.

  8. The service dept keeps calling me and I say “I do my own service, very easy if you have a decent set of tools and the time.”, and I know I am using the best fluids, synthetic, not paying for synthetic, and you use the cheap stuff, if you do it at all.
