car   Transmission Fluid Leaking problem 1
Failure Date: 01/14/2014

I found leaking transmission cooler lines on my Jeep Wrangler. I contacted Chrysler/Jeep by phone to inquire about a customer satisfaction notification l05 transmisson oil cooler lines issue pertaining to TSB: 2008-2010 jk Wrangler: transmission oil cooler lines may weep transmission fluid. TSB: 2008-2010 jk Wrangler: transmission oil cooler lines may weep transmission fluid subject: extended warranty -transmission oil cooler lines may weep transmission fluid at the hose to tube crimp joints (7 years or 70,000 miles warranty extension) overview: this bulletin involves installing new transmission oil cooler supply & return line assembly. Models: 2008 -2010 (jk) Wrangler note: this extended warranty bulletin applies to vehicles equipped with 3. 8l engine (sales code egt) and an automatic transmission (sales code dgv) built before March 10, 2010 (mdh0410xx). Symptom/condition: weeping transmission oil cooler lines at the hose-to-tube crimp joints. Diagnosis: if the symptom/condition is experienced proceed to the repair procedure. I was told my vehicle would not be covered by this and I would have to pay for the repairs. If these lines were to burst or open up enough to spray fluid it would ignite off the exhaust manifolds and burn the vehicle to the ground. This has happened to several Jeep owners I have found in my research and one owner had their vehicle burn even after the lines were improperly replaced by a dealership even. My Jeep meets all the criteria in the customer satisfaction notification l05 yet I was told it wasn't covered.

car   Transmission Fluid Leaking problem 2
Failure Date: 08/03/2009

The contact owns a 2009 Jeep Wrangler 2-dr 4x4. The transmission fluid leaked from the vent of the transmission. The dealer cleaned the vent and advised the contact to let him know if it recurs. The dealer also stated that it appeared that the fluid was burping out of the heat vent from the transmission but not from any other seal. The failure mileage was 400 and the current mileage was 12,000.
