got dip stick?
So my 09 WK 3.7l didnt come with a dip stick for the tranny. I went to the dealership that is by my house, to ask if I can buy one, but they told me that they dont sell them. So I asked them to check the tranny fluid and they told me that I have to make an appointment. I am thinking ”REALLY?? For a 1 minute thing, I need to make an appointment and then pay?” so I called a few different dealerships to find out if thats actually true. Spoke to a manager in the Queens dealership,and he told me that to check the tranny fluid with a dip stick is free and you dont need an appointment. So what is my solution? I tried to search the Web, found 1 but im not sure it will fit. Anybody ever dealt with this kind of dealership BS? Or found a dip stick that will fit the 3.7l?

Mine is coming up with a speed sensor code, and I'm wondering if it could just be low on fluid. I saw a guy on here with an 05, or 06 with a dipstick that has our setup. I wonder if we could order this. I wish I could trust my stealership, but they were tested by me with lousy results.

Yep, such a PITA. I was thinking of going to the dealership and just tell them that I have a 2005/6 jgc with a 3.7 and my dip stick broke. I think they must sell me one. Don't you think?

Re: got dip stick?
Yeah most of chryslers new stuff really started cycling in on the NAG1 doesnt have a dipstick and uses the same miller special tool... The reason it costs money to check it is because its not a conventional dipstick with hot and cold marks, it is just marked off by centimeters, then you have to look up the specific graph for that trans for where the level should be at what specific temperature, so to properly check the fluid you must have this graph handy and have your trans temp and the dipstick... Its not just a dunk and look dipstick any longer.

Some programmers (like the Diablo does for the 6.1) have trans oil temp.

Are there any programmers for the 3.7? Not sure.

There is a hypertech and sct tuner for the 3.7 but I heard it was for 05-07. Idk, maybe they have it for 09 now?
