Uggg, Reverse died

Tried to get back out of dads driveway yesterday. Reverse didnt work and made a grinding noise. Great, just what I need while on leave 400 miles from my duty station thats going to cost me $1k+.

Anyway, manager at the tranny shop towed it for free since he is x-military. I told him I had a mild tune on the truck and he said hell rebuild it to handle the beating on it.

Well, that will the second most expensive thing Ill have repaired (engine hydro-locked a couple of years ago) so with the exception of the rear diff possibly going out, I should have no more major mech problems in the near future.

Re: Uggg, Reverse died

If you have a chance later down the road, upgrade your Transmission with a Sharadon Tranny.

Sucks that you had to go through that.

Just an update, I ended up paying $4,100 + tax on the damn thing. Before any one goes crazy about it, I was in an emergency situation and was broke down on vacation away from my duty station. I had no time or choice.

Seriously though. That is effing insane the amount that cost to rebuild. I've never seen a tranny rebuild run that much. The shop said the rebuild utilizes HD parts... Which is the only thing available. Heh, at least it won't be breaking anytime soon.

Re: Uggg, Reverse died

Jeep trannies typically run $3500 or so around here- southern Ontario, had the 727 in my Charger rebuilt for less than half that. Hope I never have to rebuild the one in my 07 Overland.....

Re: Uggg, Reverse died

I got my tranny in my 05 WK rebuilt for $2800.00. The shop installed upgraded parts in it as well. The painful part was it only had 76K miles on it. My 96 Cherokee has 200k on it and never had an issue with it. I guess the newer stuff just isn't as well designed or built like the older Jeep stuff.

Re: Uggg, Reverse died

I wonder what would cause transmission failure so early? Is it possible that underfilling the transmission fluid after one of the service intervals might be to blame? I know I had a heck of a time getting the right fill level after having my transmission serviced. I think it left there originally with 2-3 quarts low. Using the dipstick hole to fill makes checking it tough, especially if you're getting paid by the job (service techs).

The failure in mine was very likely due to a new motor put in about 25-30k ago.
