That is what your dash engine oil light and sensor is for... since most people dont check it anyway.

The dip stick is not supplied with the vehicle (this is a vehicle with a mercedes trans) mercedes also doesn't come with dipsticks. would recommend buying one from the dealer or other supplier. the last answer was correct if its not leaking shouldn't be low. I would still buy a dipstick so you have one for when the vehicle is serviced.

Hi Debbie,

The dealership around where I live in CT says the "tool" cost is $50 and is on backorder. You may wanna try to purchase a dipstick from a 2004 Liberty. The problem may be the differences in the transmissions as to the level. I have an 07 Liberty which was supposedly offered in a 4 spd auto as well as a 6 spd according to the dealer. If you know that you have the 4 spd auto, you may be able to get away with ordering one from a 04 Liberty with a 4 spd automatic. This is my plan, since I have the "dealer service only" plug as you do.

Can any authorized Transmission Repair shop- perform a service on this Jeep? I am having the same problem. I need my transmission serviced and I'm told that only the dealership can do it.. and that seems just wrong!

I had Allen Samuel in Aransas Pass service my mothers 2006 jeep G C 2 months ago. Recently I had to oil changed again at Walmart and ask the tech to check the transmission fluid, he said he couldn't, the dealer could do it. I called and ask the service dept at A S Dodge if my mother could just stop it and a tech could just check it (:00:30 tops). They said NO, she would have to wait 1.5 days, they had a line of people in front of me, # REALLY. Now I'm trying to find somewhere I can buy, make, or steal a transmission dip stick so I can check it. It may not use oil, in a perfect world, but it can leak out over time. So much for Jeep not installing a $2.00 part. #%*! Mopar/Jeep
