Asked by May 16, 2018 at 09:47 AM about the 2009 Jeep Liberty

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently purchased a 2009 Jeep
Liberty 3.7 6cl. 4×4 with 155,000
miles. I noticed a oily fluid all over
my frame in the front and my
transmission was slipping Bad!
Firestone told me I needed a new
condensor and I had the
transmission filters and fluid
serviced and A/C recharged
yesterday. The transmission isnt
slipping anything like it was
yesterday but has slipped a
couple of minor times. I need to
know how to check my
transmission fluid level and
ANYTHING Else I probably need to
get done. Our Only Transportation

Do you know where the transmission dipstick is located? Well, just in case, as you stand in front of the vehicle, look to the left and back, close to the firewall, you will see a hexagonal plastic cap (yellow, red, black). With vehicle in park, engine idling, measure the fluid level, if low then add transmission fluid through the dipstick tube. Be sure to add it slowly as it will fill up quickly and is difficult to remove excess fluid if you overfill.
