Gear oil is for manual transmissions, the more miles the heavier the oil recommendation... for the dipstick.... also You should be able to find a shop manual at your local library with the right info...make copies as they are usually only in the REFERENCE section....good luck:)

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.

Does a manual transmission on a Saturn sl1 have to have fluid in it to engage starter?

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.

Does a 1994 Jeep Cherokee with standard transmission need transmission fluid?

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.
