I had reported the smell of burning coolant. The technician is attending a transmission training today and stated he would consult others there. The Wrangler seems like it has enough room under it to get to most of the stuff you need to without being a royal pain in the butt. Either way, a trip to the dealer would be wise. This occurs when the vehicle is accelerated after a complete stop, the problem also displays anytime while driving on 1st , 2nd or 3rd gear. The elitist attitude doesn't work, and all it does is show that you're a dick if you have that sort of attitude.
The vehicle was not repaired. The transmission is also well-behaved, with only occasional hesitation, which is sometimes a problem among newer automatics with higher gear counts. Ahhhh, wouldn't that be nice. Had it towed to belle tire and found right rear axel went out, affected calipers and brakes all had to be replaced. Replaced the stock intake to make them happy, still shudders in reverse.
The vehicle was towed to the dealership where the recall repair was performed. I have had it in 3 times they replaced the water pump twice and still same issues. However, most say it is benign. The legendary Wrangler off-roader is a singular entity. Immediately after purchasing the vehicle, the clutch began popping out of first and second gear.
The connection is intermittent constantly connecting and disconnecting for any function making it inoperable. Changes for 2013 include redesigned seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, new wheel designs for Rubicon and Sahara trim levels, an. Chrysler issued an interim notification to owners on December 8, 2014. Not my first stick shift, but it has been many years since I had one. Average rate of occurrence is 2 times a day. It use to make it only about 20% of the time but now about 80% of the time.
From there every time the vehicle stopped the engine would stall. I put my old flywheel back in. That's why I reluctantly went with the auto. Had carrier, carrier bearings and locker actuator replaced under warranty. Tranny would not engage in any gear. It really was not bad changing the clutch.
They found a vacuum hose disconnected from the air-inlet elbow. Happens when starting from a stop - loud banging noise. When leaving a stop, manual transmission violently pops out of 1st gear on acceleration. Like Jerry said, take it another dealership and get another opinion. Upgrades from the past couple of years have classed up the cabin, and the noise level in there is better than ever, though by no means class-leading. I'm going to have to trade the Jeep because it is unsafe.
And no reason to be sorry. Dealer replaced seal, bearing, and race under warranty. This event has occurred several times since the first time it was taken into the dealership in April 2014. We had the vehicle towed back to the dealership for repair. The failure occurred on numerous occasions.
Consumer also has several other concerns with vehicle. Additionally I am afraid that after factory warranty runs out, the tranny falls out and I am stuck with cost. I have taken back to the dealership 2 other times now and they can not find anything wrong, of course!!! This caused misfires and triggered a trouble code. She looks and handles great, was very stable in the snow, and overall is in great condition. This is a potentially expensive repair and I don't want my warranty to expire before it finally breaks. Don't tell them you're just there for a second opinion.
When it is cold outside, the boots dont flex well--so it pushes the vehicle out of gear. My vehicle has been parked since Sep 3. Upon inspection the U joint had quite a bit of play, back and forth, in it. Meanwhile I was driving an unsafe vehicle for an entire year. This seems to happen when acceleration is needed most of all such as when turning left on a busy 4-lane road.
Don't Look Back Once inside, you'll find a high dashboard, which shorter drivers might not like. Sure enough just six months ago the transmission started to pop out of first gear. Got down the road, and when I stopped at the stop sign, engine quit again. The transmission will jump out of 1st gear jog into neutral when beginning to accelerate from a dead stop. Please let us know what happens.
