ATF+4 (auto trans fluid), fill it to just below the hole that you are pouring it in. I've always filled mine until it runs out, but that's not what the handbook says. It says something along the lines of one half inch below the hole.

97 shop manual says Dexron II, Mopar-Mercon, or ATF Plus. It also says that the correct fluid level is to the bottom edge of the fill plug hole. In the transmission be sure to use only ATF +4.

Ok, dumb question. Which is the fill plug? Also on the bottom of the transfer case there is a plug with a spring and a plunger type mechanism. Is this a drain plug and how is the spring and plunger oriented when reinstalling. I removed the plug not expecting a spring to pop out and I'm not sure which way to correctly reinstall.

I'm gonna recommend you invest in a Haynes manual at the very minimum if you're going to continue to maintain your truck yourself.

Mutineer thanks for the headsup. Zach571, always good advice when working on something unfamiliar. But before you pass me off as somebody that doesn't have a clue, I just finished rebuilding the complete tranny and OD unit on my 2000 ram from the groundup complete and it runs perfect. Better than new. Removed it, rebuilt it, and reinstalled by myself, on my back, in the driveway. And yes, I had a brand new repair manual which I consulted often. Was just looking to have a few "simple" questions answered without having to spend $25-$50 on a repair manual. And incidentally, that spring plunger mechanism I asked the question about, I was given the "wrong" orientation to reinstall by the local dealership. If you read my list of mods, all those and more have been done by myself. Don't claim to be a transfer case guru. Again, just looking to have some simple questions answered. Thanks.

On the back of the t case should be two hex bolts. The bottom is the drain and the top is the fill. To fill it, have the bottom one in, and fill it to the top hole.
