some 545RFE has no dip stick
so is that what you have, i cant see it.
and ill quote, page 21-233
2004 fsm, last year, USA< is yours USA????????????????
Low fluid level can cause a variety of conditions
because it allows the pump to take in air along with
the fluid. As in any hydraulic system, air bubbles
make the fluid spongy, therefore, pressures will be
low and build up slowly.
Improper filling can also raise the fluid level too
high. When the transmssion has too much fluid, the
geartrain churns up foam and cause the same conditions
which occur with a low fluid level.
In either case, air bubbles can cause overheating
and/or fluid oxidation, and varnishing. This can
interfere with normal valve, clutch, and accumulator
operation. Foaming can also result in fluid escaping
from the transmission vent where it may be mistaken
for a leak.
After the fluid has been checked, seat the dipstick
fully to seal out water and dirt.
The transmission has a dipstick to check oil level.
It is located on the right side of the engine. Be sure
to wipe all dirt from dipstick handle before removing.
The torque converter fills in both the P (PARK)
and N (NEUTRAL) positions. Place the selector lever
in P (PARK) to be sure that the fluid level check is
accurate. The engine should be running at idle
speed for at least one minute, with the vehicle
on level ground. At normal operating temperature
(approximately 82 C. or 180 F.), the fluid level is correct
if it is in the HOT region (cross-hatched area) on
the oil level indicator. The fluid level will be approximately
at the upper COLD hole of the dipstick at
70° F fluid temperature.
NOTE: Engine and Transmission should be at normal
operating temperature before performing this
(1) Start engine and apply parking brake.
(2) Shift the transmission into DRIVE for approximately
2 seconds.
(3) Shift the transmission into REVERSE for
approximately 2 seconds.
(4) Shift the transmission into PARK.
(5) Hook up DRBt scan tool and select transmission.
(6) Select sensors.
(7) Read the transmission temperature value.
(8) Compare the fluid temperature value with the
chart. (Fig. 59)
(9) Adjust transmission fluid level shown on the
dipstick according to the chart.
NOTE: After adding any fluid to the transmission,
wait a minimum of 2 minutes for the oil to fully
drain from the fill tube into the transmission before
rechecking the fluid level.
(10) Check transmission for leaks.

The transmission on this truck is sealer, it doesn't have a fill tube or dipstick. To add fluid requires a scanner be hooked up to monitor fluid temperature and a special fill port used under the truck to add fluid.

How does one add transmission fluid to 1995 jeep grand cherokee laredo?

Look for the dipstick where you check the transmision fluid level. If you need any you pour it down the dipstick hole. Add it in small amounts and check in between additions, its really easy to overfill. Once overfilled a real pain to get it out.

Knocking noise when accelerating

A few questions for you how many miles on the engine? have you had regular oil changes done? This model should have the 4.0 liter engine if so what you are describing sounds like rod knock. The 4.0L engine is designed to take allot of abuse and last for well over 200,000 miles but if regular oil changes are not done you are in for trouble. And the only way to fix rod knock to have the engine rebuilt.

Life expentancy of 1996 grand jeep cherokee engine

If the engine doesnt smoke to much and if you dont have to add much oil between oil changes and you cant hear any unusal noises from the engine you should be able to run that car for many more miles. My dad has a 92 Jeep Cherokee and he over 300,000 miles on it and it still goes as long as you take care of it with regular oil changes you should have no problems
