Windshield Washers

The fluid reservoir in the engine compartment should be checked for fluid level at regular intervals. Fill the reservoir with windshield antifreeze (not radiator anti­freeze) rated not to freeze at -25°F (-31°C). Operate the system for a few seconds to flush out the residual water.


Commercial windshield washer solvents are flam­mable. They could ignite and burn you. Care must be exercised when filling or working around the washer solution.

Windshield Washer Aiming

To change the aim of the windshield washers, place a safety pin into the nozzle opening and move the nozzle slightly. Continue making slight adjustments until you obtain the desired pattern.

Exhaust System

The best protection against carbon monoxide entry into the vehicle body is a properly maintained engine exhaust system.


If you notice a change in the sound of the exhaust system; or if the exhaust fumes can be detected inside the vehicle; or when the underside or rear of the vehicle is damaged; have an authorized technician inspect the complete ex­haust system and adjacent body areas for broken, dam­aged, deteriorated, or mispositioned parts. Open seams or loose connections could permit exhaust fumes to seep into the passenger compartment. In addition, inspect the exhaust system each time the vehicle is raised for lubri­cation or oil change. Replace as required.

Cooling System


You or others can be badly burned by hot coolant or steam from your radiator. If you see or hear steam coming from under the hood, don’t open the hood until the radiator has had time to cool. Never try to open a cooling system pressure cap when the radia­tor or coolant bottle is hot.

Coolant Checks

Check coolant protection every 12 months (before the onset of freezing weather, where applicable). If coolant is dirty or rusty in appearance, the system should be drained, flushed and refilled with fresh coolant.

Check the front of the radiator for any accumulation of bugs, leaves, etc. Clean the radiator by gently spraying water from a garden hose at the back of the core.

Check the engine cooling system hoses for condition and tightness of connection. Inspect the entire system for leaks. Any hoses that show cuts or severe abrasion must be replaced.

Cooling System Drain, Flush, And Refill

At the intervals shown in the appropriate "Maintenance Schedule," the system should be drained, flushed, and refilled.

If the solution is dirty and contains a considerable amount of sediment, clean and flush with reliable cooling system cleaner. Follow with a thorough rinsing to remove all deposits and chemicals.


Engine Coolant Disposal

Used ethylene glycol based engine coolant is a regulated substance requiring proper disposal. Check with your local authorities to determine the disposal rules for your community. Do not store ethylene glycol based engine coolant in open containers or allow it to remain in puddles on the ground. Prevent ingestion by animals or children. If ingested by a child, contact a physician immediately.

Selection Of Coolant

Use only the manufacturer’s recommended coolant, refer to Recommended Fluids, Lubricants, and Genuine Parts for correct coolant type.


  1. Mixing of coolants other than the specified HOAT
    coolant may result in decreased corrosion protec­
    tion and engine damage that may not be covered
    under the new vehicle warranty. If a non-HOAT
    coolant is introduced into the cooling system in an
    emergency, it should be replaced with the speci­
    fied coolant as soon as possible.

  2. Do not use plain water alone or alcohol base
    antifreeze products. Do not use additional rust
    inhibitors or antirust products, as they may not be
    compatible with the radiator coolant and may
    plug the radiator.

  3. This vehicle has not been designed for use with
    Propylene Glycol based coolants. Use of Propy-
    lene Glycol base coolants is not recommended.


Adding Coolant

When adding coolant, a minimum solution of recom­mended 50% ethylene glycol antifreeze coolant in water should be used. Use higher concentrations (not to exceed 70%) if temperatures below -37°F (-38°C) are anticipated.

Use only high purity water such as distilled or deionized water when mixing the water/antifreeze solution. The use of lower quality water will reduce the amount of corrosion protection in the engine cooling system.

NOTE: Mixing coolant types will decrease the life of the engine coolant and will require more frequent engine coolant changes.

Please note that it is the owner’s responsibility to main­tain the proper level of protection against freezing ac­cording to the temperatures occurring in the area where the vehicle is operated.

Cooling System Pressure Cap

The cap must be fully tightened to prevent loss of coolant, and to insure that coolant will return to the radiator from the coolant reserve tank.

The cap should be inspected and cleaned if there is any accumulation of foreign material on the sealing surfaces.


The warning words DO NOT OPEN HOT on the cooling system pressure cap are a safety precaution. Never add coolant when the engine is overheated. Do not loosen or remove the cap to cool an over­heated engine. Heat causes pressure to build up in the cooling system. To prevent scalding or injury, do not remove the pressure cap while the system is hot or under pressure.

Coolant Level

The coolant bottle provides a quick visual method for determining that the coolant level is adequate. The coolant level must be at the FULL mark or above the ADD mark on the bottle.

The radiator normally remains completely full, so there is not need to remove the radiator cap unless checking for coolant freeze point or replacing coolant. Advise your


service attendant of this. As long as the engine operating temperature is satisfactory, the coolant bottle need only be checked once a month.

When additional coolant is needed to maintain the proper level, it should be added to the coolant bottle. Do not overfill.

Points To Remember

NOTE: When the vehicle is stopped after a few miles of operation, you may observe vapor coming from the front of the engine compartment. This is normally a result of moisture from rain, snow, or high humidity accumulat­ing on the radiator and being vaporized when the thermostat opens, allowing hot coolant to enter the radiator.

If an examination of your engine compartment shows no evidence of radiator or hose leaks, the vehicle may be safely driven. The vapor will soon dissipate.

  1. Do not overfill the coolant bottle.

  2. Check coolant freeze point in the system.

  1. If frequent coolant additions are required, or if the
    level in the recovery bottle does not drop when the
    engine cools, the cooling system should be pressure
    tested for leaks.

  2. Maintain coolant concentration at 50% ethylene glycol
    antifreeze (minimum) in water for proper corrosion
    protection of your engine that contains aluminum

  3. Make sure that the radiator and coolant bottle hoses
    are not kinked or obstructed.

  4. Do not change the thermostat for summer or winter
    operation. If replacement is ever necessary, install
    ONLY the correct type thermostat. Other designs may
    result in unsatisfactory cooling performance, poor gas
    mileage, and increased emissions.

Hoses and Vacuum/Vapor Harnesses

Inspect surfaces of hoses and nylon tubing for evidence of heat and mechanical damage. Hard or soft spots, brittle rubber, cracking, tears, cuts, abrasions, and exces­sive swelling indicate deterioration of the rubber.


Pay particular attention to the hoses nearest to high heat sources such as the exhaust manifold. Inspect hose rout­ing to be sure hoses do not touch any heat source or moving component that may cause heat damage or mechanical wear.

Insure nylon tubing in these areas has not melted or collapsed. Inspect all hose connections such as clamps and couplings to make sure they are secure and no leaks are present. Components should be replaced immedi­ately if there is any evidence of degradation that could cause failure.

Brake System

In order to assure brake system performance, all brake system components should be inspected periodically. Refer to the appropriate "Maintenance Schedule" in Section 8 for suggested service intervals.


Riding the brakes can lead to brake failure and possibly an accident. Driving with your foot resting or riding on the brake pedal can result in abnormally high brake temperatures, excessive lining wear, and possible brake damage. You wouldn’t have your full braking capacity in an emergency.

Brake and Power Steering System Hoses

When servicing the vehicle for scheduled maintenance, inspect surface of hoses for evidence of heat and me­chanical damage. Hard and brittle rubber, cracking, tears, cuts, abrasion, and excessive swelling suggest deteriora­tion of the rubber. Particular attention should be made to examining those hose surfaces nearest to high heat sources, such as the exhaust manifold.

Inspect all hose clamps and couplings to make sure they are secure and no leaks are present.

NOTE: Inspection of brake hoses should be done whenever the brake system is serviced and every engine oil change.



Worn brake hoses can burst and cause brake failure. You could have an accident. If you see any signs of cracking, scuffing, or worn spots, have the brake hoses replaced immediately.

Brake Master Cylinder

The fluid level in the master cylinder should be checked when performing under hood services, or immediately if the BRAKE warning light shows system failure

Be sure to clean the top of the master cylinder area before removing the cap. If necessary, add fluid to bring the fluid level up to the requirements described on the brake fluid reservoir. With disc brakes, fluid level can be expected to fall as the brake pads wear. Brake fluid level should be checked when pads are replaced. However, low fluid level may be caused by a leak and a checkup may be needed.

Use only manufacturer’s recommended brake fluid, refer to Recommended Fluids, Lubricants, and Genuine Parts for correct fluid type.



Use of a brake fluid that may have a lower initial boiling point or unidentified as to specification, may result in sudden brake failure during hard prolonged braking. You could have an accident.

Overfilling the brake fluid reservoir can result in spilling brake fluid on hot engine parts and the brake fluid catching fire.


Use only brake fluid that has been in a tightly closed container to avoid contamination from foreign matter. Do not allow petroleum base fluid to contaminate the brake fluid as seal damage will result.

Automatic Transmission

Selection of Lubricant

It is important that the proper lubricant is used in the transmission to assure optimum transmission perfor­mance. Use only manufacturer’s recommended transmis­sion fluid, refer to Recommended Fluids, Lubricants, and Genuine Parts for correct fluid type. It is important that the transmission fluid be maintained at the prescribed level using the recommended fluid.


Using a transmission fluid other than the manufac­turer’s recommended fluid may cause deterioration in transmission shift quality and/or torque converter shudder. Using a transmission fluid other than the manufacturer’s recommended fluid will result in more frequent fluid and filter changes. Refer to Recommended Fluids, Lubricants, and Genuine Parts for correct fluid type.

Fluid Level Check 42RLE

This fluid level should be checked when the engine is fully warmed up and the fluid in the transmission is heated to its normal operating temperature. Operation of the transmission with an improper fluid level will greatly reduce the life of the transmission and of the fluid.

To check the automatic transmission fluid level properly, the following procedure must be used:

1. The vehicle must be on level ground.


  1. The engine should be running at curb idle speed for a
    minimum of
    60 seconds.

  2. Fully apply parking brake.

  3. Apply the brakes and shift the transmission into P

  4. The fluid MUST be checked with the transmission in
    P (Park) to be sure that the fluid level is accurate.

  5. Wipe the dipstick clean and reinsert until seated.
    Remove dipstick and note reading.

At normal operating temperature (approximately 180° F (82° C), the fluid level is correct if it is in the HOT region (cross-hatched area) on the oil level indicator. The fluid level indicator should be in the COLD region at 70° F (21° C) fluid temperature.

If the fluid level is low, add sufficient fluid to bring to the proper level. Refer to Recommended Fluids, Lubricants and Genuine Parts for correct fluid type.

Fluid is added through the dipstick tube.

NOTE: To prevent dirt and water from entering the transmission after checking or replenishing fluid, make certain that the dipstick cap is properly reseated.

Special Additives

The manufacturer strongly recommends against the ad­dition of any additives to the transmission. The only exception to this policy is the use of special dyes to aid in detecting fluid leaks. The use of transmission sealers should be avoided as they may adversely affect seals.

Hydraulic Clutch Fluid Manual Transmission

The clutch hydraulic system is a sealed maintenance free system. In the event of leakage or other malfunction, the system must be replaced.

Manual Transmission

Selection of Lubricant

Use only manufacturer’s recommended manual trans­mission fluid, refer to Recommended Fluids, Lubricants, and Genuine Parts for correct fluid type.


Fluid Level Check

Check the fluid level by removing the fill plug. The fluid level should be between the bottom of the fill hole and a point not more than 3/16" (4.76 mm) below the bottom of the hole.

Add fluid, if necessary, to maintain the proper level.

Frequency of Fluid Change

Under normal operating conditions, the fluid installed at the factory will give satisfactory lubrication for the life of the vehicle. Fluid changes are not necessary unless the lubricant has become contaminated with water. If con­taminated with water, the fluid should be changed im­mediately.

Transfer Case

Fluid Level Check

The fluid level should be to the bottom edge of the fill hole (A) when the vehicle is in a level position.

Adding Fluid

Fluid should be added only at filler hole until fluid begins to run out of the hole.


First remove fill plug (B), then drain plug (C). Recom­mended tightening torque for drain and fill plugs is 15-25 ft.lbs. (20-34 N-m).



When replacing plugs, do not overtighten. You could damage them and cause them to leak.

Selection of Lubricant

Use only manufacturer’s recommended fluid, refer to Recommended Fluids, Lubricants, and Genuine Parts for correct fluid type.

Front/Rear Axle Fluid

Fluid Level Check

Lubricant should be at bottom edge of the oil fill hole.

Adding Fluid

Add lubricant only at the fill hole and only to the level specified above.

Selection of Lubricant

Use only manufacturer’s recommended fluid, refer to Recommended Fluids, Lubricants, and Genuine Parts for correct fluid type.

Appearance Care And Protection From Corrosion

Protection Of Body And Paint From Corrosion

Vehicle body care requirements vary according to geo­graphic locations and usage. Chemicals that make roads passable in snow and ice, and those that are sprayed on trees and road surfaces during other seasons, are highly corrosive to the metal in your vehicle. Outside parking, which exposes your vehicle to airborne contaminants, road surfaces on which the vehicle is operated, extreme hot or cold weather and other extreme conditions will have an adverse effect on paint, metal trim, and under-body protection.


The following maintenance recommendations will enable you to obtain maximum benefit from the corrosion resistance built into your vehicle.

What Causes Corrosion?

Corrosion is the result of deterioration or removal of paint and protective coatings from your vehicle.

The most common causes are:

  1. Road salt, dirt and moisture accumulation.

  2. Stone and gravel impact.

  3. Insects, tree sap and tar.

  4. Salt in the air near sea-coast localities.

  5. Atmospheric fallout/industrial pollutants.

  6. Bird droppings.


  1. Wash your vehicle regularly. Always wash your ve­
    hicle in the shade using a mild car wash soap and rinse
    the panels completely with clear water.

  2. If insects, tar, or other similar deposits have accumu­
    lated on your vehicle, wash it as soon as possible.

  3. Use Mopar® Auto Polish to remove road film and
    stains and to polish your vehicle. Take care never to
    scratch the paint.

  4. Avoid using abrasive compounds and power buffing
    that may diminish the gloss or thin out the paint


Do not use abrasive or strong cleaning materials such as steel wool or scouring powder, which will scratch metal and painted surfaces.


Appearance Care For Fabric Top Models


To maintain the appearance of your vehicle’s interior trim and top, follow these precautions:

Avoid leaving your vehicle unattended with the top down, as exposure to sun or rain may damage interior trim.

Do not use harsh cleaners or bleaching agents on top material, as damage may result.

Do not allow any vinyl cleaner to run down and dry on the paint, leaving a streak.

After cleaning your vehicle’s fabric top, always make sure it is completely dry before lowering.

Be especially careful when washing the windows by following the directions for "Care of Fabric Top Win­dows."

WASHING Always use mild soap suds, lukewarm water, and a brush with soft bristles. If extra cleaning is required, use a mild foaming cleaner on the entire top, but support top from underneath.

RINSING Be sure to remove all trace of cleaner by rinsing the top thoroughly with clean water. Remember to allow the top to dry before lowering it.

Care Of Fabric Top Windows


Your vehicle’s fabric top has pliable plastic windows which can be scratched unless special care is taken by following these directions:

  1. Never use a dry cloth to remove dust. Instead, use a
    soft cotton cloth moistened with cold or warm, clean
    water, and wipe across the window, not up and down.

  2. When washing, never use hot water or anything
    stronger than a mild soap. Never use solvents such as
    alcohol or harsh cleaning agents.


  1. Always rinse thoroughly with cold water, then wipe
    with a soft and slightly moist, clean cloth.

  2. When removing frost, snow or ice, never use a scraper
    or de-icing chemicals. Use warm water only if you must
    clean the window quickly.

  3. Debris (sand, mud/dirt, dust, or salt) from off-road
    driving will have a major impact on zipper operation.
    Even normal on-road driving and vehicle washing will
    eventually impact window zipper operation. To maintain
    ease of use of the window zippers, each window zipper
    should be cleaned and lubricated regularly. Use Mopar®
    Soft Top Zipper Cleaner and Lubricant to ease zipper
    operation. Before applying, make sure the zipper teeth
    are clear of sand, mud, and other materials. Clean both
    sides of the zipper, not just one side. Rinse both zipper
    halves with fresh water and allow to dry. Aggressively
    work the Mopar® Soft Top Zipper Cleaner and Lubricant
    into the zipper teeth. If a stuck zipper slide is experi­
    enced, work the Mopar® Soft Top Zipper Cleaner and
    Lubricant into the zipper slide. Several applications may
    be required before the zipper comes free.

6. Never paste stickers, gummed labels or any tape to the windows. Adhesives are hard to remove and may dam­age the windows.

Special Care

  1. If you drive on salted or dusty roads or if you drive
    near the ocean, hose off the undercarriage at least once
    a month.

  2. It is important that the drain holes in the lower edges
    of the doors, rocker panels and tailgate must be kept
    clear and open.

  3. If you detect any stone chips or scratches in the paint,
    touch them up immediately. The cost of such repairs is
    considered the responsibility of the owner.

  4. If you carry special cargo such as chemicals, fertilizers,
    de-icer salt, etc., assure that such materials are well
    packaged and sealed.

  5. If a lot of driving is done on gravel roads, consider
    mud or stone shields behind each wheel.


  1. Use Mopar® Touch Up Paint on scratches or chips as
    soon as possible. Your authorized dealer has touch up
    paint to match the color of your vehicle.

  2. Aluminum wheels should be cleaned regularly with
    mild soap and water to prevent corrosion. To remove
    heavy soil, select a non-abrasive, non-acidic cleaner.
    Do not use scouring pads or metal polishes. Avoid
    automatic car washes that use acidic solutions or harsh
    brushes that may damage the wheels’ protective fin­

Interior Care

Use Mopar® Fabric Cleaner to clean fabric upholstery and carpeting.

Use Mopar® Vinyl Cleaner to clean vinyl or leather upholstery.

Mopar® Vinyl Cleaner is specifically recommended for interior vinyl trim.


Do not use volatile solvents for cleaning purposes. Many are potentially flammable, and if used in closed areas they may cause respiratory harm.

Glass Surfaces

All glass surfaces should be cleaned on a regular basis with any commercial household-type glass cleaner. Never use an abrasive type cleaner. Use caution when cleaning inside rear windows equipped with electric defrosters. Do not use scrapers or other sharp instru­ments which may scratch the elements.

When cleaning the rear view mirror, spray cleaner on the towel or rag that you are using. Do not spray cleaner directly on the mirror.


Vacuum your carpet regularly to prevent a soil build-up. Shampoo soiled carpet with a reliable upholstery cleaner, using a natural sponge or soft bristle brush. After carpet dries, vacuum it thoroughly.


Only remove the carpet for cleaning purposes. It provides insulation against high floor pan tempera­tures. You or your passengers could be burned if the carpet is not properly in place. Always put the carpet back into the vehicle before driving.

Follow These Steps To Remove The Carpet:

  1. Unsnap the front and rear floor carpets. A snap is
    located on the outboard side of each front seat.

  2. Remove the attachment cap from the front footwell
    area on both the driver and passenger side. The cap is
    removed by pulling it straight out.

  3. Remove the front and rear floor carpets.

  4. Remove the cargo floor and wheelhouse carpets.

NOTE: If your vehicle is equipped with an Add-A-Trunk™ it must be removed to be able to remove the cargo floor and wheelhouse carpets. For Add-A-Trunk™ removal procedure, refer to "Storage" in Section 3 of this manual.

^^Ø MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE 253 Follow These Steps To Replace The Carpet:

  1. Place the front floor carpets in the vehicle.

  2. Attach the carpet to the studs in the footwell and press
    on the attachment caps to secure the carpet.

  3. Place rear floor carpet in vehicle and snap rear carpet
    to front floor carpet.

  4. Install wheelhouse carpet followed by the cargo floor

  5. Reinstall Add-A-Trunk™ if so equipped.

Seat Belt Maintenance

Do not bleach, dye or clean the belts with chemical solvents or abrasive cleaners. This will weaken the fabric. Sun damage will also weaken the fabric.

If the belts need cleaning, use a mild soap solution or lukewarm water. Do not remove the belts from the vehicle to wash them.

Replace the belts if they appear frayed or worn or if the buckles do not work properly.


Maintenance After Off-Road Driving

After extended operation in mud, sand or water, or similar dirty conditions, have your brake drums, brake linings, and axle joints inspected and cleaned as soon as possible. This will prevent any abrasive material from causing excessive wear or unpredictable braking action.

Following off-road usage, completely inspect the under-body of your vehicle. Check tires, body structure, steer­ing, suspension and exhaust system for damage. Check threaded fasteners for looseness, particularly on the chassis, drivetrain components, steering and suspension. Retighten, if required, to torque values specified in the Service Manual. Also check for accumulations of vegeta­tion or brush that could become a fire hazard, or conceal damage to fuel lines, brake hoses, axle pinion seals, and propeller shafts. Check air conditioning drain tube on the lower dash wall in the engine compartment for mud or debris, and clean as required. A plugged tube will adversely affect air conditioning performance.


Under frequent heavy-duty driving conditions, change all lubricants, and lubricate body compo­nents and steering linkage more often than in nor­mal service to prevent excessive wear.


Interior Fuses

The fuse panel is located behind the glove box.


To access the fuse panel the glove box must be removed. It is removed by slipping the glove box strap off the hook and letting the door roll down off its hinges. To reinstall, position the glove box door at an 8 o’clock orientation, engage the hinge hook formations on the lower edge of the glove box door with the hinge pins on the lower edge of the instrument panel. Tilt the upper edge of the glove box door upward toward the instrument panel enough to reattach the glove box strap to the door. Rotate glove box door to closed position. Open and close to insure proper installation.

Underhood Fuses (Power Distribution Center)

Your vehicle is equipped with an electrical power distri­bution center located in the engine compartment near the battery. This power center houses plug-in "Cartridge" fuses, ISO relays, and Mini (Micro) fuses.

A label inside the latching cover of the center identifies each component for ease of replacement, if necessary. Cartridge and mini (micro) fuses can be obtained from your authorized dealer.


If you are leaving your vehicle dormant for more than 21 days you may want to take steps to protect your battery. You may:

  1. Remove Cartridge fuse #15 in the Power Distribution
    Center labeled Ignition-Off Draw (IOD).

  2. Store the removed IOD fuse in the Power Distribution
    Center location
    #11 labeled "IOD Storage."

  3. Or, disconnect the negative cable from the battery.

  4. Anytime you store your vehicle, or keep it out of
    service (i.e. vacation) for two weeks or more, run the
    air conditioning system at idle for about five minutes
    in the fresh air and high blower setting. This will
    insure adequate system lubrication to minimize the
    possibility of compressor damage when the system is
    started again.
