The Borg-Warner T4 and T5 transmissions can be found behind the AMC 2.5L I4 and the AMC 258 I6 in 1982 to 1986 Jeep CJs. The T4 and T5 are 4-speed and 5-speed standard shift transmissions, and are considered light duty.
The Borg-Warner T4 and T5 transmissions were nearly identical besides the T4 missing the overdrive gear. It has a 23 spline output shaft and a 1.125″ x 10 input splines for AMC I6 engines and 1.000″ x 14 input splines for the AMC 2.5L I4. All T4 and T5 transmissions have a input shaft stick-out length of 7.5″.
The T4 and T5 transmissions are generally considered to be weak transmissions and are not often used as an “upgrade” swap for Jeeps.
Jeep recommends you replace the transmission fluid in the T4 and T5 every 27,500 miles. AMC/Jeep Automatic Transmission Fluid or an equivalent labeled Dexron II is the factory recommended transmission fluid. Others have had success with Synchromesh manual transmission fluid.
