Re: JEEP still having ALOT of problems

Please, Please, Please, just try add 1/2 a qt of fluid. If it does not work for you for some strange reason i will give you the money for the Qt of atf. I just want to get another person on this forum that will try it with success to back me up.


The problem is a lack of pressure in the tranny because it is already under filled from the manufacturer and the specs to do a flush are under filling it. Adding 1/2 a QT will not hurt the transmission because there is a 1/2 less in there then there needs to be.

I did it to mine months ago and it has not stalled ever since then and i have taken at least 3 long trips since then and i drive my jeep every day and there are no side effects.

Jeep wont admit that is the problem because it says every where do not over fill and and if someone adds TOO MUCH it could become a problem. But if you add 1/2 to 3/4 of a qt it wont be a problem and your jeep wont stall any more.

Re: JEEP still having ALOT of problems

I would say that Ryan has a flat out just messed up Jeep. However, with the stalling and the transmission fluid being low, sounds like a good easy thing to try and probably does infact work as you have had experience with this. He should give it a try. Don't worry i believe you Kyle, lol.

Re: JEEP still having ALOT of problems

Yes, it could be low transmission fluid, however, I think it's electrical because of the check engine light and random messages flashing on his EVIC. Since most of the main electrical components have been replaced, maybe the ignition switch should be replaced because if the contacts aren't consistent, it could cause fluctuating voltage and that can cause a myriad of electrical issues. In fact, many of the '05 and '06 WK's with similar issues were fixed by replacing the ignition switch with an updated part number.

STALLING is a Torque converter issue, its a lack of pressure. Add 1/2 to 3/4 a QT of ATF + 4 fluid and it will stop.

It has worked in every single stalling WK for everyone person i know that has tired it.

the dealership looked at my jeep 2 times trying to fix the issue to no avail. I brought my jeep to another dealership, spoke with a master jeep tech, i had not finished describing my problem and he told me to do this. IT WILL NOT HURT ANYTHING. Its too small of an amount to do anything. IT WORKS.
sounds like his dealer is just making a big fuss about nothing, don't worry my question wasn't anwsered either lol, I think your definately right about this

PEOPLE LISTEN TO KYLE!!!

OR ELSE!!!

Yeah i completely agree with you on this. While sure it may help his stalling issue but all the weird electrical issues he has gotta be something different. Just a whole bunch of crazy problems.

For the heck of it, when checking the fluid level on the dipstick for my trans, it was over the "double dot" hot mark sitting cold in the garage. So it might be overfilled or it might not be but since i never had a stalling issue, so it might be at an alright level, that is if low trans fluid could cause stalling. It does make sense however especially of the vehicle is going to stall when gears are changed

Re: JEEP still having ALOT of problems

My jeep always stalled at a quick stop (when it would be down shifting) or in stop and go traffic.

Re: JEEP still having ALOT of problems

When my HEMI stalled it was because of a bad CPS.

I am not going to fix it my self due to JEEP should be able to fix it and plus i am having all kinds of problems i want them to give me another one.

Get a new jeep.
