I was at work today and noticed a wet spot under the front of the jeep. I got down and seen that it was fresh. I looked under the jeep and seen red fluid dripping off the flex hoses. It looks like it's coming from the fitting. Can I replace just the hoses or do I need to replace the whole line from cooler to trans? I don't want to rig something together I want it done correctly.

Depending on the year it is a recall call your dealer they may fix it for free

It's a 2010 with 61000 on the od. I'm going to cancel my appointment with the repair shop in the morning and call a jeep dealer first.

I think there is a website you can put your Vin in and it will check for you.

Mine was a 2012 and they did min along with the head that they replaced I only dropped off for the head to be done as I did not know about the Trans lone having a recall until I came home to have a. Recall notice in the mail...

I hope all goes well at the dealer for you!

No luck dealer says only recall open for mine is for the soft top. Mine was built 6/2010. I looked up the recall and it was for wranglers built up to 5/2010.

So it looks like I have a repair bill just in time for christmas.

Send a pic of the leak. There may be an alternative repair that you are able to do yourself.

Can't post a pic for some reason. But for some reason it has stopped leaking noticeably. Dealer says no recall and that its going to cost $600. I hope this isn't the beginning of repairs to to come.

Seems awful expensive for a leak at a fitting. I suggest a second opinion.

I would even find a shop that will hoist it up and show you what is wrong.

Too close to holidays to spend too much money unless you have too.

It needs the lines that runs from trans cooler to the transmission. They I think are $124 each. I'm going to take in to local jeep guy who does alot of work on jeeps and see what he says. But right now it quit leaking so I'm going to wait.

Don't wait too long. Leaks never fix themselves.

Transmission Fitting Leak

I have a leaking transmission fitting too. Below is a picture. Does anyone know the part number I need to order? My jeep is a 2011 JK 2.8 CRD.

Thanks,

rob
