To anyone who can help. I am a college kid who has noticed a slight leak under his 2001 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. I need to obviously fix this asap and for the least amount of money as mentioned college kid.
Keep in mind that dealers survive by selling excessive services whether or not you need it. Maybe you just need to tighten the bolts, maybe someone spilled red koolaid in there. I'd tighten the bolts, take it to a self-serve car wash and spray all that off with hot soapy jets of aqua, and see if it's still leaking.
If its low on trans fluid, it may make more noise when you shift. What you hear may just be the piston changing gears.
Has any work been done on the jeep recently that may have spilled fluid?
i had same problem month ago it was the pan it rusted out after 5 years, but rest of car has no rust. for 150 i got pan gasket and new transmission fluid and filter. or you can do it yourself the parts were cheap.
Thanks for all the help gents, but damn I don't know what to do. However found a guy that will do all the dealers suggested work for around $300, so might look into that. The leak is really bad underneath especially near the muffler though (dangerous right?)... The dealer should have tightened the bolts while he had it up right? Well time for me to go to Jeep School, if there is such a thing? lol but seriously
