My 2010 rattled slightly, but my 2015 is borderline obnoxious, sadly. I think I will check fluid levels over the weekend. Only at 1,300 so I guess we shall see.

|jon610||so update, after 2 repairs that did not work and about 3 sheets of parts they replaced the tranny and after about 10 calls to 1-800 number. So got the jeep back yesterday afternoon feeling good driving from the lot as it felt really good and sounded good. Drove about 15 miles today and THE RATTLE IS BACK!! In a brand new tranny, this is insane. I have not had my jeep for 30 days and they have repaired it 3 times and it is now worse then when it started. wth am i going to do?? Should i push for no lemon? What about all the work and parts have put into this thing? Thanks guys|

Seems this is not that uncommon...Glad I changed out when I did.
|10-08-2014 08:27 PM|
After I replaced the fluid, I filled to the fill plug edge just enough for a little fluid to drip out - telling me I was fully filled. Again 2qts, much more than the mopar stuff that came out.

So I have about 850mi on my new 2015. I chose to drop the OEM fluid. What surprised the hell out of me is that only about a quart flushed out on level ground. Now when replacing with Pennzoil Syncromax (meets Chrysler spec) that tranny took 2 quarts easily to the fill plug edge.
Makes me wonder if this what causes long term issues/complaints with the 6MT as most normally would not change fluid until 30-50K. Underfilled? Too little too late?
Since changing to pennzoil there is better low temp performance, smoother less notchy shifting, and more for the internals to swim in.

Mine started to rattle now in 1st and third. It's not all the time either. It comes and goes. Sometimes it sounds like a bushing or something just needs to be adjusted.

|jon610||Alright so my 2013 6spd has now been in the shop for 3 weeks getting every bearing replaced in the tranny, they started with throwout and rear bearing and reassembled and the rattle was worse. They have now ordered "all parts that are orderable" quote from tech. They will have in about a week and will try again, if they then have 70% of the cost of a new tranny they will replace with an entire new tranny. This is insane I wish I would have just kept it out of the shop as the tech openly told me that he had no clue what he was doing!! I have had many manual wranglers in my past and this is the first with any issues and when it does work it sucks to drive. The motor is awesome and needs a great companion tranny. I feel bad even saying it but I wish I would have got an auto. Whats next??|

|Pale Rider||I have a 2014 and it did have the transmission rattle a little at first. I added red-line mt and it did help but I could still hear it every now and then. I have just under 18,000 miles now and I haven't heard it rattle for some time and I have not had any problems with the transmission. As a matter of fact I haven't any troubles with my jeep what so ever, hasn't been back to the dealer for anything.|

I've noticed three issues with my 2014 6-speed. One, it shakes a lot during uneven roads and I deemed it normal. Two, it has a light clunk-clunk rattle type of noise only while in 3rd gear. I'm keeping an eye/ear on that one. Three, while ~55mph in 6th gear you can hear/feel a slight oscillation throughout the cabin. From experience, I would say it's an unbalance driveshaft. No issues t 70+mph. I noticed this one this past weekend on a long highway trip. I did a quick look and didn't see anything caked on the DS.
Any others with similar issues.
Edit: I just read more into this thread and see that the 3rd gear rattle is common.

|Gord P||Try a different dealership. You deserve better than that.|

|DannyV||So the dealership says that the clutch and TOB are wear items and are not covered under 3/36. I explained to them that this has been a recurring issue so we take a ride (3 different guys). One guy says her can't hear anything. One says I hear a rattle but it sounds like gear mesh and drivetrain noise (he also says he heard some spark knock - but I chose to ignore that for the time being) and the last says he hears all kinds of noise but no rattling. He then goes on to tell me that he can tear it apart but, if he doesn't find a bad bearing he will charge me. I got the impression that he wanted to scare me off and if I did leave it they were just going to let it sit in the lot and then charge me for service the next day. This is seriously pathetic. I am seriously disappointed in Chrysler/Jeep.|

I have an appointment to get my 2013 looked at next Tuesday. It's got the clutch rattle, step on the clutch it goes away...
I'm at 18k miles. Hopefully it isn't an uphill battle.

|insylem||A friend of mine was just commenting yesterday that it sounded like I have a valve tapping. But I don't It's either the tranny or the clutch rattleing. The noise goes away completly when I push the clutch pedal in. Most the time it stays quiet after I let the clutch back out (in neutral) and starts back up later or right away. I think wiht me it's the clutch, but I'd hae to crawl under it while it's running and have some one cycle the clutch to be sure.|

After my last time in the shop the tech couldn't hear the rattle in any gear and I didn't press them. It is hard to hear.
A few days ago my carpets got wet and I had to remove them. This is the first time I have ever had to pull the carpet from Wrangler. Wow do those make a difference! Since pulling the carpet the rattle is very prominent - in all gears. If I press the clutch the rattle goes away. I will be heading back to the shop next week.

Back in the shop for the rattle. Most likely the TOB again. This is the second time this issue showed itself. Each at about 14k miles.
It makes me wonder if it is poor parts, poor design, poor service skill, my driving (though I have driven manual transmissions my whole life and never replace a single part)?
We'll see what they say.

|jj77||Mine rattled originally. My gear box just got quiet after 5,000 miles. It shifted poorly for the first 3,000 miles. I thought I might have forgotten how to drive a manual. Reverse was almost impossible to get into. Now all is quiet and the shifts are smoother. Reverse is still tricky at times. But I'm okay with that. The clutch is unpredictable as well. There is a break in period on the manual transmissions.|

My third gear rattle continues to be intermittent with no apparent pattern. Sometimes days go by without it presenting itself.
It made itself known last night.
Anyhow, I was at the dealer for other warranty work earlier today, and asked that they document this issue. Of course, the mechanic who took the jeep for a test drive did not experience the rattle.

|rdg04578||Time will tell on the durabilty of this transmission but most things I have read is it is considered a medium to light duty transmission which will probaboly be fine with minimal modifications and light off roading. Kinda like the AX-5 and AX-4 were in the early wranglers and late CJ's|
|06-23-2014 11:03 PM|
|DanisJeep 14||My 2013 JKU 6 speed has no issues. I've driven many different manuals and I do agree though it's a little rougher than most manuals. My fiancé has a 5 speed Tacoma which is way smoother shifting gears. But I have had my jk for a year now and 12,000 miles later i have not had one issue.|

|Whiskeydeltatango||little off topic, but if I buy a used 2013 with less than 10k miles, warranty will cover any troubles right?|
