    So my 1995 YJ with a 2.5L with a 5 speed manual trans is different than the ones I have seen having their trans fluid changed. You know bolt on one side is the drain and the other is the fill blah blah. I get under there to day and... Only one bolt on the bottom and others that say "do not remove". So can yall please let me know how retarded I am so I can get this changed. I have attached several pics for yalls viewing pleasure. Thanks in advance for the assistance. I dont have time to blow the trans up!

    Yes 75w-90 GL3 or GL4 but NOT GL5.
    Redline MT90 is popular as well and helps with shifting.
    I have heard of people using 10w-30.... but I am not hip to that.

    Once again thanks everyone for yall advice. Shifts much better however it can still be a little difficult to get into first. When I started to drain the trans legit maybe one quart of nasty black stuff dripped out. I dont even know how this thing was shift! Next Ill be doing to transfer case.
