Not exactly the information I wanted to read

|G.I.Barbie||Thanks for the comment Silver. Can you tell me a little more about the sealant? Like what they should be using. It might help me communicate this better to the techs.|

|SilverSport||The area with the two arrows is where the transmission mates to the adapter which sets between the transmission and transfer case. It requires a special sealant similar to RTV.|

|G.I.Barbie||Ok so the last look showed two leaky/weepy spots - where the transmission meets the transfer case and to the passenger side ( the the right of t-case/tranny juncture) there is an electrical plug of some type. The mechanic marked the areas with red arrows. The mechanic was my brother who owns his own shop. I had to drive nearly 50 miles one way to get this diagnosed. The pictures shows the areas after considerable cleaning. It won't leak when I drive but after sitting for a day or two (which happens as I work from home) dripping, albeit slowly, becomes apparent. So frustrating as this is trip nine and trip ten to have to seals re-done will be Saturday (another 40 miles one way) and hopefully THE FINAL TME.|

I did pull a carfax yesterday and there was some minor accident for which I went to TXDOT to order the accident report. When I bought the vehicle this "accident" didn't make the carfax report. There were TWO recalls from Chrysler relative to the transmission - as below. This warranty was already performed. When I talked to the dealership that performed the work they said all they did was reprogram something that would let you know the fluid was overheating.
I am sitting, as I type this, in another shop getting a second opinion and from what the tech says, it's the seal where the transfer case meets the transmission. Sounds like shoddy work to me. UGH!!

|SuicideSaints||Are you the original owner? If not does the Carfax say anything? It might have been damaged from a previous owner if you aren't the original owner and repaired in a way that "worked" and when it was rebuilt the "fix" no longer worked. Just spit balling ideas. I really have no other idea if it is in fact leaking from there and they have tried multiple times. I would at least mention it..... Let us know what it is if and when you find it.|

|G.I.Barbie||They as possible but not probable. It would have to get so hot it would totally trash the transmission. I'm about to explode. Seriously.|
|05-08-2013 05:09 PM|
it sounds like the surface is warped or some other truing defect. I would nicely suggest that to them and see what they say/see.

|Garyk||If you have had 3 factory pans on it and the oem gaskets too, then I would suspect the trans housing itself|

Transmission Issues - leaking
I have a 2008 Wrangler unlimited. It's an automatic transmission. End of Feb I had the transmission rebuilt and since them I have been to the shop EIGHT times as they cannot get what seems to be the transmission pan area from leaking. They replaced the gasket 7 times and then replaced another gasket/seal "that protects the harness for a speed sensor" (that's their quote). STill this puppy is leaking. I have had 3 new pans, with the techs taking great care NOT to bend or damage the pan in any way. I'm at a loss, frustrated and so is the manager of the place. Any ideas? WHat else could this be!!
