TSB 21-001-11 Loose Transmission Fasteners
Has anyone had TSB 21-001-11 (2/15/11) completed on their GC? The TSB is for loose crankshaft to transmission torque converter drive plate fasteners. It applies to all 3.6L engines built before 12/22/10. The dealer is instructed to remove the transmission, check the torque on the fasteners, install new torque converter drive plate, spacer and fasteners if the original fasteners were not torqued properly.
I’m nearing the end of the 3 year warranty and don’t want to get stuck with a huge repair bill AFTER the warranty expires due to problems possibly caused by the loose fasteners. I only have 16K on a 2011 GCX built in July 2010 and don’t have any problems with the tranny..... yet. At the same time, my dealer has not instilled a lot of confidence in me with their previous repairs. It always seems I know more about the vehicle then they do – including TSBs.
My Jeep is going in on Tuesday due to a leaking Power Steering Rack under TSB 19-006-10 (thanks to RageofFury) so figured I would request they perform the tranny TSB at the same time.
Any thoughts, suggestions and opinions would be appreciated.
