Recall on Automatic Transmission lines

Took my Jeep to the dealer today to fix ABS/ESP/BAS lights staying on on they told me there was a bulletin to fix the automatic transmission lines.
Did not get a recall notice but the dealer stated it was being sent out.

A bulletin is completely different than a recall.

Mine is a 2009 and I had to leave it with them to go back to work and we spoke on the phone briefly.
I will post later after I pick her up and ask what years is this for and if it was a bulletin or a recall.

Called my dealer today, and sure enough, got to take it in. I'm taking mine in tomorrow. Thanks for the heads up on this.

I have an 08 and had the line repair done to my ride, but last Saturday the transmission completely went out, it would not move except to creep along, floored, could the transmission line recall have resulted in the failure of my transmission?

Angry Xmission cooler lines

I have a 2009 Wrangler and the cooler lines were already repaired once by a dealer in conjunction with the recall. The problem has reoccurred and is worse than ever. (right at the crimps for the rubber hose portions). Has anyone had any experience with trying to get it repaired a second time?
