2013 JKU Recall

So I called my dealer to setup an appointment for the tranny tube recall and they are 9 months out! I will try other dealers in my area tomorrow. I asked if my life was in danger driving in the mean time and she could not answer that question. Anybody else having trouble getting an appointment?

Took dealership about a month to get parts in for mine. Maybe an hour and a half to complete the work.

Have you guys been in for the visual inspection to even say you need it? Every person who had an automatic got the recall notice but not every automatic will need it done. Next time you are in for an oil change ask a tech to take a look and see if it needs to even be replaced.

Yes and they said that our 2013 Sahara needs it. However, the parts are on order. Been waiting 2-3 months so far.

I was told that each dealership gets 1 every 2 weeks. I might see one in the fall or next winter!

Wow, those wait times are nuts!! I got my JKUR at the end of June. I got my recall notice in September I believe, and when I went in for an oil change in November they did the work for the recall then too.

Hopefully things get moving a bit quicker for all of you waiting.

It's for automatics only. Transmission cooler line. So if you have a manual you don't need to worry about it.

Mine is automatic too and no recall letter yet. I got to check with the dealer I guess. Thanks for the info,

There is a possibility not all of the 2013's were effected. It could be early built 2013's and the call back notices were issued based on vin #'s. I would still call to be sure though.

You can also check on the Jeep website. You can setup your vehicle and it will show you if you have a recall or not. That is how I found out about it.

I have a 2013 Automatic and I never received a notice/recall about this issue. Seems like I read some time back that it was only a problem on early 2013 models. As another post states you can check your vehicle VIN to see if there are any open recall notices.

Update: Just checked mine against the VIN and the Jeep site states there are no open recalls against my Jeep.

They did mine when it went in for the Heater core replacement. Did have to ask. They said they had it on the shelve. Heater core took 3 days to get in. They had it a total of 6 days and paid for my rental

Automatic Transmission Cooler Lines?

EXACTLY (Well, one of the reasons) why I got a manual. No joke - Ive done dozens of them.

Word of advice?

The second your units are off warranty, take those cooler lines to a reputable hydraulic line shop and have the lines re-manufactured to have replacement rubber hoses threaded on (and OFF!) the factory hard lines; and have them of course make a pair of new hydraulic hoses to mate onto these hard lines. That way, you eliminate the that is put on from the factory, and IF they ever blow again they are easy-peasy to make (and having spares on board becomes see-spot-run-easy). Believe me; a LOT of folks do exactly this north of the border.

In fact - same with power steering pressure hoses; should they give trouble (however Jeeps do tend to be less problematic than much of Mopar's line). Hells; Ive seen some customers, after the fourth, eighth line say screw-your-warranty and have the Chrysler shop install non-Mopar hoses; just to be free of the nuisance.

I love my Mopars; but bloody hell; that is one component they just havent had right in twenty years now.

I have been waiting since November for the replacement parts and it is finally getting done today. The wait time is crazy for this.

If you have a build date on your drivers door of Feb 23, 2013, or earlier, and have a automatic transmission, then yours is part of the campaign!

My build date was Feb 13, 2013, and should be part of the campaign, but I have never received a notice.
I did inspect mine, and it has the extra protection sleeves already on the hose, plus even with the additional thickness of the sleeve, mine are not touching.

If you haven't already done it, then do a search, and you will find the large lengthy Thread that we have on this topic. Go to it and you will see pictures of what to look for.........

If yours is rubbing, and about rubbed through, then I wouldn't drive it! If it is just touching, then just get a piece of 5/16 gas hose, split it and put it between the lines. It is a very simple fix..............

I went in Dec 15, 2013 and had my 2012 checked out and the fix is needed. I was told two weeks for the parts. I have since called back 3 times and every time I call, I get the 2 week run around. My service manager told me that driving it daily will not cause any issues, and if it does, I am under warranty, and that my VIN is logged in the system as needed it fixed.

^^^Yours obviously must not be rubbed/fretted to the point of leaking, or he would not have told you to drive it!
Just do a search for the recall P/S oil cooler line Thread, and you will see how easy it is to just slip a small piece of hose over the line, if needed!

Sometimes in life we have to improvise....(Clint Eastwood)!

Been waiting since last summer too. Mine did have a shiny spot where it rubbed but I put hose over it to protect it. Dealer gets one per week and there are a lot of Jeeps here.

Go to the search feature, and type in (Power Steering, oil cooler recall campaign).
You will see the Thread 630,000 recalled, just click on it and open it. Next go to Post #16 and it will show you a very clear picture of the area that rubs and frets through on some. Not all that are in the recall need attention. Mine already has the protective hoses on it, and yours may also. But looking, is the only way to tell for sure.

If yours is rubbing and starting to fret through (rubbing a hole into it), then it needs to be repaired, (replacing of the lines). If there is no fretting, but they are close to touching, then get a piece of 5/16 gas hose, split it and install between the line. If they are not touching, then you are good to go!.

This is only temporary, because your Dealer still needs to check it, and then clear it off of their recall list..........

Been waiting for this since August 2013. I went in around New Years and still had 1/3 parts in. Maybe I'll swing by tomorrow and see whats up. I forgot all about this until this thread popped up.
