Jeep Grand Cherokee Automatic Transmission Fluid Types

8-Speed Jeep Grand Cherokee Transmission

The Jeep Grand Cherokee's 8-speed transmission debuted in the 2014 model year. The Jeep 8-speed automatic transmission has had several versions since its inception in the Jeep Grand Cherokee models, currently being used up to the present 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee models (at the time of this article being written). The standard Jeep Grand Cherokee models use the 8HP70 and 8HP75 8-speed automatic transmissions manufactured by ZF. Later, Jeep released the high horsepower Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Trackhawk equipped with the large torque capacity ZF 8HP95 transmission to support the supercharged 6.2 liter V8 engine.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee 8-speed automatic transmissions require a specific fluid designed and formulated for ZF 8-speed transmissions or equivalent. This correct Jeep transmission fluid can be identified as ZF 8 & 9 Speed ATF Automatic Transmission Fluid or equivalent, also known as Chrysler Mopar 68218925AB, 68218925AA, 68339073AA, 668157995AA, or 68157995AB OEM part numbers.

To ensure proper transmission performance and longevity, we always recommend using a transmission fluid that specifically states use for Mopar 8-speed automatic transmissions. Some fluids display performance levels for the Jeep 8-speed transmission but use general formulations that are multi-vehicle transmission types but are not specifically for the Jeep Grand Cherokee 8-speed automatic transmission application. Our Ravenol and Eurol transmission fluids are formulated with the Jeep Grand Cherokee 8-speed transmission applications in mind. These fluids ensure the perfect function of the Jeep 8-speed transmission and maximize wear protection.

Why Is Changing Jeep Grand Cherokee Transmission Fluid (ATF) Important?

The Jeep Grand Cherokee automatic transmissions have hundreds of moving components, such as needle bearings, ball bearings, pressure pumps, clutch packs, servo pistons, and seals. These internal components mesh or engage with one another, causing friction and begin to wear and create fine metallic particles which contaminate your Jeep Grand Cherokee automatic transmission fluid over time. Your Jeep Grand Cherokee automatic transmission fluid (ATF) and filament transmission filter eventually become contaminated with these particles. These metallic particles can cause wear on these internal transmission components leading to inefficiencies in the transmission and long-term reliability issues.

Also, through everyday transmission use and thousands of transmission operation shifting cycles, the essential additives and base oils in the transmission fluid deplete, break down, and wear out. As part of your vehicle's regular maintenance, you should change the transmission fluid and filter, replenishing the transmission with fresh transmission fluid.

Suppose a Jeep Grand Cherokee transmission has had poor service and has worn out the transmission fluid. In that case, it will typically be noticed by poor transmission operation with symptoms such as premature late shift points, rough or jamming shifts, and slipping. If you have seen a new transmission fluid, it's nearly clear in color compared to the dark color of an old worn-out transmission fluid. Changing Jeep Grand Cherokee automatic transmission fluid old mettalic particles and sedimentYou most likely will agree that it is logical that changing your Jeep Grand Cherokee automatic transmission fluid and filter on a regularly scheduled interval is necessary for long-term transmission reliability and consistent performance. Suppose you are experiencing these transmission shifting issues. In that case, we recommend changing your automatic transmission fluid and filter as a first step in trying to resolve any problems dealing with transmission operation.

Right-Hand Pictured Example: Transmission service performed in our repair shop on a vehicle with a 5-speed ZF Tiptronic automatic transmission with approximately 80,000 miles on it. The customer complained of shifting problems when the transmission was cold. Note the dirty metallic sediment that was removed from the transmission drain pan. After changing the automatic transmission fluid using one of our BLAU Transmission Fluid Filter Change Kits, the customer reported that his transmission shifting problems were gone. If you're experiencing transmission shifting problems with your Jeep, Blauparts recommends changing your automatic transmission fluid and filter as a first step in solving the problem.

What Is the Jeep Grand Cherokee Transmission Fluid (ATF) Change Interval?

We recommend changing your Jeep Grand Cherokee transmission fluid and filter every 60,000 miles.

Jeep Grand Cherokee models that experience more aggressive driving styles or are used in the commercial delivery industry and contractor trades are typically subjected to heavy city traffic or trailer pulling that tends to generate extreme heat in the transmission. Owners subjecting their vehicles to these severe driving conditions should consider replacing the transmission fluid and filter more frequently, such as every 40,000 to 50,000 miles.
