2007 Jeep Grand Transmission Leaking

MY wifes 2007 Grand is leaking tranny fluid. Is there a recall on this vehicle or is this a normal problem these have. I only have 24000 miles, but I think my warranty is out.

Why would you warranty be out if you only have 24K miles?

Could be bad O-ring seal

Just got mine back from the dealer. It has 25,500 miles and started leaking transmission fluid a couple of days ago. According to the mech, there is a plug/socket in the housing that has crummy O-ring seals. He put in a new one, with new O-rings under warranty. BTW, at 24k you should still be covered.
Good Luck!

NO warranty it ran out 15 days ago. I am so pissed off right now. I bought it used and the dealer said that it would be covered threw 2010 and now I have a problem and they say the inservice date was Dec 17, 2006 so now its out of warranty. Any idea where the plug was. Was yours leeking from the front or the back? Also what did they say it would have cost?

Checked it out tonight and more bad news. The three bolts on the passenger side of the tranny pan are stripped out. Not the bolts, but the holes the bolts go into. So now I am at a loss for words. What did they sell me.

You can prob fix the stripped holes, pick up a tap and die set and if you have room, you can up the hole to the next size bolt. It is easy to do and isn't expensive. If its a metric bolt you can up it 1 or 2 mm or switch it to standard if the size jump is minimal. Drill and tap the new size in, pick up a new bolt of the same dimensions from home depot...fixed. It shouldn't take much as those bolts aren't designed to be torqued that high.

Also, call chrysler about the warranty, they may help you out on this one considering you were in service not long ago.

probably only the adapter plug/ electrical plug on the box cost of the part is very cheap (change the adapter not the seals, new adapter comes with seals). and it's only 1 bolt for the heat shield and 1 bolt in the plug to change. Very common fault on the merc box. Takes longer getting the oil level correct then changing the part.

No more problems, since they replaced the socket and seal.

Hi could someone tell me where the adapter plug is situated on the autobox.I have just removed the plastic covers under the engine and gearbox of my WK to carry out an oil change and found lots of ATF fluid on them, i have not had time to investigate the leak yet but will try to get under the jeep at the weekend.

next to the bell housing you will see a silver shield covering the adapter plug, can't miss it.

Thanks for the info Merlin.I did an oil change today using your write up so have been under the car and found the 13 pin adapter plug. I have not investigated the plug any further than this but will do so next week.By looking at my Jeep service CD there is a bayonet lock that has to be released to remove the plug and reading your earlier post there is a bolt holding the socket in place. Is it best to drain the oil first and then replace through the dipstick hole and then get level checked at dealer.
