The Jeep Grand Cherokee (ZJ) was the first of the sport utility vehicles that were introduced between 1992-93, and involved both American Motors and Chrysler, who bought out American. The 1994 model year has the SE attached to it. Power windows and doors were not included in the standard package until 1995. The ZJ’s last hurrah was in 1998, so maintaining your ZJ with the right parts and fluids is crucial. Most ZJ owners do most of the maintenance themselves, which means that the fluids have to be maintained within proper ranges to continue to have a good solid ride. XJ Grand Cherokees have parameters that are specific only to them, so make sure you verify and look up what fluid type you need. The chart below can help you to find the right lubes and fluids for your ZJ. If you still have your ZJ owner’s manual, it can help you fine tune the requirements, but we’ve provided a handy reference for when you begin your work.
