Re: 98 XJ AW4 which transmission filter kit and oil?

The simple and mess free way to replace 100% of the trans fluid is to drain the pain using the drain plug, and replace the approximately 3-4 quarts that drained. Repeat about 4-5 times every few hundred miles, and the job is done.

I drain and refill the pan once a year .

Easiest would be the lower line on the cooler in the radiator. The inlet to the cooler is on the bottom. It fills from the bottom so you don't get air trapped. The outlet goes back to the trans and drains into the pan.

I'd just do a couple of changes through the drain plug.

I've used Napa Dex III. It's fairly inexpensive and I've had no issues.
