First timer with some mechanical skills. It should take no more than 2 hours, maybe a bit more on your back. $300-$400 labor, I'm in the wrong business!

Their efforts to save cost on labeling cost them a bunch in Warranty repairs. Pretty stupid if you ask me they should really change the labeling so there's no confusion. Penny wise and pound foolish.

Nice ride! No problem with synthetic, as others mentioned. Pennzoil Platinum, or Pennzoil Ultra Platinum if you can find it in 5W20 will do just fine.

I would only use ATF+4 in a Chrysler product calling for ATF+4. I wouldn't chance using RP, or any other fluid that is not specifically labeled ATF+4. BTW ATF+4 is a synthetic based fluid, and a...

Try going to an auto parts store that reads codes for free, or if you have a code reader hook it up and see if you have any codes stored.

Don't count on it. I would stipulate to the dealer you want it taken care of before you take title just to be safe.

It could be the heater controls, blend door, and or a bad heater core. I would have them pressure test the system for leaks, that might reveal the source of the smell. As far as the temperature...

+1 No way in hell would I leave them with the dealer. They'll sell them, and get a hell of a lot more than $20 each. Just look at what some guys in this thread paid the dealer for them.

We think alike! I'd love to know if the article I read was 100% accurate. I think only Chrysler's top brass knows, and everything else is speculation and educated guesses.
