Transmission Leak

Brought my Commander in for it's Mobil 1 oil change. Technician told me I have a leaky transmission pan seal. Brought it into Jeep on warranty. I was told that the leak was more complicated than the gasket. They put some dye into the fluid to find the leak which they think is on top of the transmission. So next week I have to drop it back off so they can drop the tranny to find the leak. Just as my warranty was coming to an end. Thank you Mobil 1 technician.

I do not know a lot about automatic transmissions but because of the exhaust routing on the commander I would guess that any work needed to the trans would be complicated even changing the fluid/pan gasket.

As one who is not mechanical, I can only say it must be a nightmare.

I currently have the same problem. Car Sense where I bought my Commander found a leaky trans pan and they thought it was cracked. Still under my 30k warranty I went to a dealer and they replaced the pan and resealed. Went back to Car Sense for a tune up and they said the same problem is still there im at 27k miles and have to take it to a different dealer as the previous one is now closed b/c of thr bankruptcy. The closest dealer is an hour away...it is such a pain!

I agree with you, it's an inconvenience. I'm lucky enough to have a stealership close by that's still in business.

The majority of these 'above the pan level leaks' are caused by the o-ring sealing the ecm connecter going through the trans housing.
There is a T.S.B.

It seems like there are always problems with "O" rings, no matter where they are. Fords were always notorius for "O" ring problems.

They found the leak! After removing the transmission, they found it was in a pressure line. Also, all of you that are still on warranty, check your rear seat divider cup holder. There is a black piece of plastic in there that breaks. That whole section would have to be replaced. Luckily, all done on warranty.
