Dexron/Mercon III compatible ATF (not ATF+4). It's usually referred to as "Dex/Merc Multivehicle ATF"

Will look something like this:

WHY R PEOPLE NOT PAYING ATTENTION TO ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT PARTS OF THEIR JEEP. not to mention probably the most expensive.

Check/change/ ALWAYS.. This absolutely amazes me.

before anything else, i need to ask this...

How are you checking your transmission fluid? You should be checking the fluid level with the jeep warmed up (after a drive), with the engine running, parked on a flat surface. If any of those didn't happen check again.

If you find it's low, just add fluid through the dipstick with a small funnel until it reaches the proper level (still with the engine running).

^^^this man knows what he's talking about...

I would personally do a drain and fill (typically requires 3 qts of fluid).

2000 XJ sport. Was relegated to my wife's winter vehicle when I replaced it with my 2010 Expedition, Limited with all the bells and whistles. Boy I loved that new truck, but nothing beats an XJ. My poor Expy was totaled by a twin trunked 100' Ash during Sandy a couple of weeks ago. Mustang will be back on the road in the winter and the XJ is back to DD service. Putting a new stereo deck and speakers in this weekend, I can't commute anymore w/o Bluetooth!

i just got the same news (and recommendation to replace the radiator) from my very trusted mechanic. He furthered the thought with: you've got over 145k miles, I'll fill it up and you keep checking it. If it only loses a little, keep adding. If it loses a lot, its probably not worth paying (7-8 hours labor) him to take apart / check for leaks / rebuild.
