Howdy - not a RC question but related to Mopars:
My wife has a 2002 Jeep that she has taken in for 30K service check to a local mechanic shop. It's the six cylinder model, auto transmission, 4wd. Aside from the other things, the manual calls for replacing the transmission fluid. She said fine then they called her back and said it would be an extra $50 bucks because the transmission fluid was "special kind". I can't wait to see the manual to see what is so special about it but she told them to go ahead and change it. What is so special about 2002 auto tranny Jeep fluid?

I knew I should have done it myself, dang it. :mad:
