    JK Tech Forum
    Hi guys, been driving around the past couple days and I noticed a slight burning smell coming from my front wheels. I did have a stuck caliper on the right but had that replaced now the smell is coming from both front wheels. On the drivers side it looks as though there is a leak but i'm not...
  2. Automatic Transmission Leak

    TJ Tech Forum
    I noticed a puddle of red under my Jeep and searched for the reason why, and settled on the rear transmission seal. So, I've got the skid plate off, transfer case dropped, and it almost seems like there is another leak farther forward as well. Is there a seal up that direction that is a common...

    Hola all- been looking into joining the Jeep Wrangler family to have a summer car. Make good money but like most millennial - student debt out the ass.

    Noticed this after going for a short drive. What am I looking at here? engine oil/transfer case leak? how serious is this and how easy/difficult is it to fix? I marked the spots where I can see the oil dripping from.

    Hello All! I could really use some help. I recently changed the oil in my jeep and after I was done decided to fire her up and take a look underneath. What I found was one of my fuel supply lines leaking where it goes from the hard line to the flexible rubber line. I can seem to find a...

    Hello all, I know there are a ton of postings about Jeep water leaks and I have looked for days but can not find anything about my particular leak and hoping someone has seen this before.

    Hey guys I've got an 07 Sahara unlimited, and I've been trying to chase down the answer to this for a while, and can't find any answers.

  9. Dealership says: "Re-torque Soft Top"

    JK General Discussion Forum
    Took my new 2018 JK to the dealership to get the leaks looked at. I primarily wanted them to replace all the seals, since they seemed so worn for a new Jeep and I want to milk the 3 year warranty. They called me and said they replaced the seals, but the leak is still happened. They said they...
  10. Dealership says: "Re-torque Soft Top"

    JK General Discussion Forum
    Alright. I've been having leaks in my 2018 JK 2 door. First I took it to the dealership - I knew they probably couldn't solve the issue, but I thought I would exhaust this option before trying to fix it myself, since it is so new. They ended up replacing the seals around the doors. This did...
  11. Cracked Transmission Inlet - repair or despair?

    YJ Tech Forum
    I was replacing tranny fluid in my 1990 YJ 4.2 and somehow cracked the inlet port of the transmission. Really, I broke off the top half of the female inlet. There's enough inlet left to hold the plug, and the plug enters the case (but only just a bit, like maybe 2-3 mm). I question whether...
  12. Heater Core Leak & Broken Blend Door Actuator

    TJ Tech Forum
    So I noticed that there is fluid leaking from the passenger side of my TJ. It is a very small leak but it seems to be engine coolant since it is the same color and consistent with my engine coolant. The fluid leaked on to my blend door actuator and I believe that is why my heater stopped...

    JK Tech Forum
    Hello everyone, For the past few months my 2004 TJ has had a whistle noise whenever I wasn't putting on the gas & going over 25mph. Now, it'll whistle almost always if i'm not pressing the gas.

    JK Tech Forum
    I'm brand new to the Jeep world with my 2015 Jeep Wrangler JKU I purchased a couple of months ago. Today I just noticed some fluid leaking from the undercarriage.
