1999 Jeep Cherokee V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 194000 miles
I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited (Quadra Trac II) V8 with 194,000 miles that I recently took to a transmission shop for a transfer case service. The vehicle was running fine and the plan was to simply reseal the TC and replace the fluid, soon after service I noticed vehicle was not driving the same. After going back to shop with complaints they added a limited slip lubricant from NAPA and also replaced chain inside TC. I did a little research and it turned out shop used Chevron Dextron 3 Transmission Fluid (M-D3) on my TC, I probably drove on that fluid for about 5 weeks (1,500 miles) until I replaced it with TC fluid at the dealership. The car is driving ok but has definately has a different sound and feel. I would like an opinion on whether using transmission fluid on my TC would have caused damage to vehicle? Or whether having a different chain inside TC is now a factor? I have had several repairs done at other shops in the weeks since so I'm wondering if transmission shop might be responsible.
have the same problem?
