See my profile, Imma CJ Guy
You really need to read my profile and Adhere to it!
A MANUAL will tell you when to change fluids and filters, if applicable. It will also explain HOW TO DO IT, THE CORRECT WAY!
My wife has a Ford Escape, I change the fluid when SCHEDULED MAINTAINENCE calls for it, However the filter can only be changed, by pulling the tranny and disassembling it...........GO FIGURE???!!
If you haven't done it when you were supposed to, WHAT WILL IT HURT TO CATCH UP NOW????
I always perform these maintainces (EVERY AND ALL) whenever a "New to Us" Rig arrives at our house...........I trust my "KNOWN MAINTENENCE" more than I do "WHAT THEY SAID".
BE SMART, that $30 manual is worth every penny, Read thru every page (at least scan) You will be an expert on your rig real soon, A Well Maintained Rig is less likely to let you down.....Lasts A Long Time Too! See Pic below of my 64 year old Baby....."WILLY" (I have a 33 year old CJ5, Can show those pics too!)........I maintain him (THEM) with Several manuals (some have better, more info, better pics and diagrams than others--I have many different ones, for each of my rigs..........1 is better than none!)..............Both of my rigs are nice---not junk!
