Unhappy Help (URGENT)

Ok so yesterday i replaced my jeep commander 4.7 tranny fluid and both filters and i also had my buddy a guy good with cars replace my rear pinion seal and after picking it up all is good the trans shifts smooth but there is a terrible vibration that sounds like a car rolling over thos stop sighn rivets in the road it only happens at around 1600 rpms and if i give it some gas it stops if i stop accelerating it stops my mechanic buddy said he tightened everything down good the shaft and stuff but i think maybe he overtightened the pinion nut Am i right? i dont know whats cuasing this he said he put about 9 qts of mopar atf+4 in the pan and im not to worried about the trans it feels good but this vibration has me worried maybe u joints or a bushing I dont know


Thanks for any and all help

Well I think you know already the direction to look in. Just changing the trans fluid wouldn't cause that so its probably the rear end work you had done. If the torque specs aren't followed properly I would imagine something like this can happen. There is a wright up on the process on here I think or on the other forum I know I have seen it.

If you read those PDF docs there are a lot things that have to be done very specifically not hard to do but if he didn't have the specs when he did it it's possible he over or under tightened something.

These trannies take quite a bit of driving to warm up to operating temp., I hope he’s not looking at the “hot” marks on the dipstick after the change… just start the car up while it’s still cold and see where the level is. It should be somewhere between the lower two holes... good luck.
