Automatic or manual?
The manual transmission in a 1994 Cherokee uses 80 W 90 gear oil, not ATF.
If it is a manual, you put the correct fluid in it. If an automatic, do not start the engine. You need to drain it out of the transmission.
there is no fluid for a 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.
just regular transmission oil because my dad had a Cherokee Laredo te same year and he just used regulsr transmission fluid
A Cherokee uses Dextron in an automatic and 75w90 in a manual. A Grand Cherokee uses Mopar ATF+4 in an automatic.
Auto uses Dextron Manual uses 80w90
The transmission fluid filler is located in the back of the engine compartment on the 2007 Accent manual transmission. You fill it by removing the dipstick.
You can use any SAE certified manual transmission fluid in your 1996 Ford manual transmission. Make sure you use manual transmission fluid and not automatic transmission fluid.
Your manual transmission does not have to have fluid in it in order to start the engine. Theoretically you can start the engine with the transmission out of the vehicle totally. That being said.... Its not a good idea to start the engine if there is no fluid in the transmission just in case someone tries to move the vehicle by putting it in gear. You do not want to drive the vehicle with no fluid in the trans.
More than likely it uses transmission lube, which is way heavier than transmission fluid. But, saying that, there are some manual transmissions that do use A/T fluid. Check your owners manual for the correct lube for your transmission. Installing an improper lubricant will ruin the transmission.
