Transmission Recall - anyone had theirs in to the dealer for it?

There are numerous transmission problem (stalling, clunking, thuds, shuddering, shifting to neutral) on here and Fiat (sorry I mean Chrysler ) just issued a recall on these WKs for transmissions inadvertantly shifting into netural and stalling issues (this issue actually happens with mine on a somewhat frequent basis).

I contacted the dealer and they haven't had any WKs in yet for this recall, but has anyone gotten anything in the mail on this?

The mailers aren't supposed to start until June. Give it a bit more time. Took them this long to address the problem, will take them a bit longer to contact owners.

Completely unrelated. The recall's for the transfer case.

If you've having stalling, clunking, shuddering, and missed shifts, that's a whole other kettle of fish. Have you checked your fluid levels? What's the service history?

I was referring to the subject of the majority of the transmission related threads posted on here - I am referring to something else - I was asking if anyone had gotten any info on the transmission going into neutral recall.

My (the wife's) 2005 WK goes into neutral shortly after startup. If you don't let it warm up, you can't drive away. It's been to the dealer for routine maintenance and is not related to fluids/linkage/shifter components.

I'm waiting for my mailing the dealer confirmed the recall will "start" in June.

Was there a transfer case related recall on these at some point in time?

This new recall is about the t-case shifting to neutral, not the transmission.

I'm taking mine in Friday and leaving I until its fixed. Not sure if it has anything to do with the recall but while driving 65mph my jeep downshifted and then went into neutral almost causing a huge accident

Yes. The reports that YOU linked earlier in this thread are referring to a recall that is related to the T-CASE shifting into neutral, NOT the tranny. I suspect that your wife's vehicle is experiencing something else. There is a common condition where when you first shift into gear it won't go. The cause is the tranny fluid draining out of the torque converter down to the pan because of a bad check valve. It's possible that this is what you are experiencing.

recall notice arrived.

Got recall notice today , says they are working on software updates and its not ready at this time. Please do not contact dealer for service until you receive "follow up recall notice" - And Please be sure to use the parking brake .. I have a 2005 Laredo 4.7 QT II. This affects 05-10 WK/XK QDII or QTII only. I'm not very worried about this recall, I don't leave it running abandoned very often.

Yes, mine is the same as 98jgc. There is also a card attached to update the information for your VIN.

There is ALREADY a THREAD FOR THIS.

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f67/a...53/index3.html

It is a recall for the software in the TRANSFER CASE.

The notice that they are going to have a recall has been mailed out.

The "FIX" is not ready. When it is available, then you will be notified (again).

The problem is when you use the remote start to start the Jeep, it can sometimes shift the transfercase into "N" allowing the Jeep to roll.

You can use use the parking brake when you park to avoid the issue until it is resolved.
