Changing a Jeep Cherokee(XJ) from an automatic to a manual transmission should be relatively simple in comparison to conversions for other models where manufactures drastically change the design of their vehicles based on the type of transmissions installed. Not to mention most car models change and redesign the exterior, interior, and engine multiple times over the course of the model's lives. Not the Cherokee, the infamous simplicity and reliability of the Cherokee is ultimately due to the bullet proof AMC 258cid in-line-six cylinder engine which inspired its relatively unchanged and universal design characteristics that are reflected throughout it's seventeen years of production in the U.S; and twenty-one years in China. Based on this engineering concept, it is plausible to purchase, or scrap the parts needed from one of the thousands of dying Cherokees out there, and directly swap them out. The general list of parts would include the clutch pedal assembly, shifter, appropriate electronic connectors, transfer-case(for four wheel drive applications), drive shaft(s), transmission, cross-member, and of course your drug of choice(alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, and/or THC) to assist with research and installation. I must also add that some conversions may require you to swap or add computer components. The main cost of the conversion would be the transmission, transfer case, computer parts, and most importantly your time; not to forget researching and picking up parts. Even though this project would be relatively simple and fun for the mechanically inclined, based on the abundance of Cherokees on the market, it's extreme reliability, and again it's universal design, I would be be cautious of reality checking witches(wives, girlfriends, and mothers) who may argue that it's more reasonable to purchase a used Cherokee equipped with a manual transmission installed from the factory.
Only 5 speeds
The automatic transmission in a 1995 Jeep Cherokee is an AW4. The automatic in a Grand Cherokee is a 42RE, also called an A500.
The transmission fluid capacity of a 1995 Jeep Cherokee is 8.5 quarts. When the fluid and filter are changed, only 4 quarts are needed.
the neutral safety switch for a 1995 jeep Cherokee is located on the passenger side of the transmission above the front corner of the transmission pan.
For a 1995 manual transmission grand am, the fluid capacity is 2.0 quarts for a complete drain and refill. The fluid type is 80W90 transmission oil.

Read your owner's manual. This information can be found there.
It controls the transmission shifts.It controls the transmission shifts.
Should be a plug on the side of transmission
it has a manual tensioner
It will cost between $1500 and $3000 to change your automatic transmission to a manual transmission. The price is dependent upon the type of manual transmission.
I don't know if the 1995 is the same , but the ( 1996 ) Ford Aspire uses Motorcraft MERCON automatic transmission fluid in the manual trans-axle ( manual transmission )
It depends on the engine size... 2.5L = MOPAR ATF PLUS (Automatic Transmission Fluid - Type 7176) 4.0L = MOPAR Automatic Transmission Fluid (P/N 4773590) or equivalent labeled DEXRON III MERCRON fluid. This information is taken directly from the 1995 Jeep Cherokee Owner's Manual, page 168. Putting in the wrong kind of transmission fluid will cause problems.
If it is a Manual transmission you do not have a dipsticks.
Motorcraft MERCON automatic transmission fluid for your 5 speed manual
On a 1995 Ford Ranger ( North America models ) The 5 speed manual transmission takes : ( 2.8 U.S. quarts of MERCON automatic transmission fluid ) * transmission code " M " *
No. the 2001 trans requires a completely different computer system than the 1995.
no jeep Cherokee and jeep grand Cherokee are designed with different bolt patterns and all the connections will be different
u don't it's a manual transmission if i remember right u don't it's a manual transmission if i remember right there is no dipstick for the saturns manual transmission that year
A manual 5-speed transmission from a 1995 Chevy 4x4 will not fit in a 1991 Chevy manual 5-speed transmission. The two engines vary in some specifications which makes them incompatible.Ê
It would not likely be cost effective to convert the transmission. It would cost several thousand dollars, but it is doable.
The manual transmission that came in 1995 Isuzu Rodeo was 21.9 US gallon engine which was ranked as 18mpg-US. This has been modified over the years with most models having automatic transmission.?æ
as long as is it the same motor the tranny should be the same
yes. look at ur manual.
Manual transmissions do not have dipsticks, they have fill plugs in the sides of their cases.
