I am having some problems changing gears on my 2000 4.0 TJ. I live in Florida and was wondering if draining out the tranny fluid and replacing it with synchromesh is advisable? If so what is the best brand to go with to get a little more life out of my transmission?

I did that, Fluid change worked for a few days then same. You will need a Clutch Job or if automatic new rebuilt tranny.

It’s a 2000 TJ standard. I was thinking of changing the fluids first to see if there is any improvement. I’m not sure if synchromesh or 10w30 is the way to go. If it is just the clutch not the end of the world.

+2 on the Red Line. It is expensive oil, but cheap oil costs more and gains you nothing. I had to stubbornly do it wrong before I did it right.
