How to Replace a 1994-1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Transmission Oil Cooler

The transmission oil coolers on 1994-1998 Jeep Grand Cherokees are of two types. One type is mounted in front of the radiator on the right side. The other type extends across the front of the radiator at its bottom. The type used depends on which of several automatic transmissions the vehicle has. The part number for the automatic transmission is on the left side of the transmission above the fluid pan gasket. Knowing the transmission part number will help in finding a replacement oil cooler.

Skill level:Easy

Things you need

Phillips screwdriverFlathead screwdriverLabelsDrain panTransmission oil coolerCooler hoses (optional)

Instructions

1 Remove the mounting screws and detach the lower attachment clips and then remove the front grille of the Jeep. Remove the headlight housing assemblies along with the side marker and turn signal lights. Remove the front bumper fascia by taking out the upper and lower retainers that hold it in place and the plastic rivets from the front of the inner bumper liners. Slide the fascia off its pegs. Remove the reinforcement piece at the grille opening.

2 Label the cooler oil lines to assure they go back to the proper ports and place a drain pan under the hose connections to the cooler. Loosen the hose clamps and disconnect the hoses from the cooler.

3 Remove the cooler by unfastening its connections to the radiator. Inspect the cooler hoses to see if their condition is good enough to reuse. Otherwise, purchase and install new hoses with the new cooler.

4 Install the new transmission oil cooler and reconnect the hoses. Reinstall all the parts that were removed to enable the replacement of the oil cooler.

5 Start the engine and check for transmission oil leaks. After the transmission has had time to warm up, check the transmission fluid level and add fluid as needed.

Tips and warnings

The 4.0L six-cylinder models have either a 42RE or a 42RH transmission. The 5.2L V8 models have either a 44RE, 46RH or 46RE transmission. You may need this information to find the oil cooler you need. Otherwise, you might have to use the style and dimensions of the old transmission oil cooler to find a replacement and hope it does the job.

Remove the battery cable to the negative terminal before working on the vehicle.

Tighten fasteners and clamps securely, as a leak can cause transmission problems.
