I use Mobil 1 5W30 just because that's also what I put in my t-case (Tera Lows). IIRC, the manual calls for 10W30. Check the fill plug, mine says it on there.

Umm, no. The MUA5 has separate spaces for tranny and x-fer fluids. Same fluids, different cases. They have a habit of sharing, but it is a one sided problem when the front case gets warm and pumps fluid through the two seals on the main shaft and over fills the x-fer case. But that is a story for another day.

There are 2 fills and 2 drains. Loosen the fills before pulling the drains. They have a habit of seizing. Refill both through the shifter holes. Much easier than trying to coax oil up into a 1/2" hole above your head.

Yep, tranny fill plug is on passenger-side near bell housing, drain plug is on driver's side near the crossmember.

T-case fill plug is on passenger's side (may have to remove skid plate to loosen it if it is really tight, drain plug is directly on bottom and accessed through the hole in the skid plate.

Yeah, but even those are a friggin' mess. You end up with an oil soaked pump and two tubes full of left over oil. Fill the tranny through the shifters and all you need to use is a funnel. Simple and easy to clean.

I back-bleed the pump and set it aside. I started using 'em after filling the rear diff and spilling gear oil all over me and the driveway.

Wimmen don't understand the smell

The pump in the picture lists for ~$30.
You can get a disposable version for less than $6 IIRC.

It's better than removing my shifter boot
don't ask

alrighty thanks for the help. The filling through shifters thing will save me headache in the future. When i swaped out the tranny fluid in my luv i used a suction gun thing and still got oil everywhere. Shifter boots are easy enough to pull
Alright so the mua 5 has 2 drain and 2 fill, huh guess ill lo0ok at it closer then

trooper auto

what about fluid changes in an automatic equipped 1999 trooper? Even the dealer has not been able to give a straight answer on when it needs to be done- only that they need $129 to do it because it upsets the computer. I love technology!
