Again thanks for your input however it's a 1998 trooper, there is no dip stick for the transmission oil only for the motor oil. That's why I don't know where or how to replace the oil once I let it drip or drain out!

These are not typical transmissions, towards the rear of the tranny pan on the transmission case itself almost dead center you will see a bolt, on absolutely level ground when you remove that bolt fluid should just dribble out, if it don't then there is a special little pipe that you put in there and refill it with that, when you reach the correct amount it will flow out then you remove the pipe and reinstall the bolt. If you have never worked on these then I recommend that you have it professionally serviced, do not use quick change places, a tranny shop is your best bet when it comes to these trannys.

This type of system is gaining control, it is just too keep the average joe from servicing his own rig without having to buy special stuff. I don't know if it is still up but you tube had a video of a guy changing the fluid in one, might check it out if your interested.
