Help! 10A transmission...
 
The other day I was driving my automatic JKR 10A (with only 900 miles on it) in a bad thunderstorm, and I kept thinking it was acting kind of funny (shifting strangely, RPM's too high). When I got to my destination (25 miles/45 minutes), I parked it. 7 hours later I came out to a huge puddle of pink/red fluid under my Jeep. I had it towed to my dealer.

According to my dealer, a hose came loose that caused my Jeep to quickly lose pretty much all of its transmission fluid. They say they have reattached the hose and refilled the fluid and it's ready to be picked up.

Should I pick it up and hope for the best...or demand a new transmission? Help!

This exact same thing happened to someone else here a month or so ago... I don't remember the user name, hopefully he see's it.

I'm assuming you read the thread on the transmission recall affecting your vehicle (and mine). I have the same ride as you and am thinking about being proactive and scheduling the repair instead of waiting on Chrysler to "contact" me

Sounds rather familiar....at least you got some use out of the jeep prior to this occurrence. Mine let go less than 24 hours after delivery and less than 2 hours with me behind the wheel. 43 miles on the ODO.

they gave me the same story, attached tube, filled her up and sent me on my way. Then it started shifting weird. Now its at the dealer again today for the 3rd time to see what the next repair to the tranny is. I'm STILL trying to get a new tranny put in...no luck yet. :9lame:

BTW - this was all that was left after a mile long trail on my way home. Still can see the huge slick where it let go as a reminder every time I drive home. It's been 2 months and still highly visible in the street.

Different issue. The recall is regarding the transmission cooler line contacting the power steering line and rubbing through. If your was built after February 2013 like mine, it's already taken care of.

Crouch down and look at the front of the wheel well on front driver side. You'll see two hard lines connecting to a cooler. The lower one should have a black sleeve on it (like in the pic, but the upper line should still be connected ;)). Follow the lower line back just a bit towards the rear. there will be another line with a foam sleeve that crosses close to it. If you've got the black plastic sleeve as seen in my pic on the lower tranny cooler line, and the foam sleeve on the PS line, then you're OK.

I told my dealer about the recall (they didn't know). They said that wasn't the cause of the problem and that they can't do anything with the recall problem until the recall is officially issued.

Even though it was a different problem, this person got a new transmission out of Chrysler...
