possible tranny leak
 
so i am attempting to install my 4Xguard belly skid and upon inspection of the area where it will be installed i noticed some tranny fluid on the tranny fluid pan.

i have never seen anything on the ground where i park. levels on the dip stick are showing good.

should i be concerned? should i get it checked out b4 i install the skid plate?

any thoughts will be greatly appreciated - thanks

Ya, you're still under warranty. I'd get it fixed if it were my Jeep.

I had a leaky seal on the pan and I have read a few others with this issue as well. I had the shop do it and the tran filter for I think $90.

cool - this was the type of info i was looking for - thanks

what was the reason for the leaky seal? did the bolts loosen? seal degrade?

i am under warranty but i have a $100 deductible. I'll take it to a shop i have a good relations ship with. They tell me if it;s anything i should bring it to jeep for.

thanks

i really wanted to get that skid in this weekend too - owell

The Sprinter guys are changing out the Transmission Adapter Plug Housing due to leaking.
I haven't checked yet to see if we have the same thing.

Did you have your 30k service performed? If so, the shop probably didn't seal it up right and should fix it at no charge.

I have a tranny leak from my lines heading to the cooler, I keep an eye on my fluid and it seems to be a really slow leak so im not worried about dishing out the money right now since I hear its an expensive fix. I'd clean it off and see if you get anymore leakage, a pan gasket should be an easy fix so it might be worth while even if its a small leak so you dont need to check your fluid all the time.

i haven't done my 30k service yet - i have about 33k on it.

I'm going to have a shop by my office check it out anyway. they'll tell me if i should go to jeep or not - i'm still under the 36K warranty so i have no deductible at this point.

i like taking stuff to these guys before i go to jeep so when i bring it to jeep i have a good idea of what the issue is to begin with.

i have a really hard time trusting dealerships
