I no longer feel safe taking my family anywhere in the car. I couldn't get pass 60 miles per hr. The hose is rated for 20-30 lbs of pressure and over 250 degrees F so the connection would be a bigger concern than hose failure in my opinion. This has done this with my family in the car about a minute after getting fuel, if not less, and turning onto a busy street where Jeep stopped running. It happened so fast that the person behind me almost hit me. He pulled it out and told me it was part of transmission; it was the metal transmission fill tube.
I was hesistant to get on the freeway so I drove to a empty lot to see if it happen again and sure enough as soon as I travel a few yards, the engine goes off again. When I went for regular service Jeep said they did not now what the warning light was, the computor said no codes. I returned to the dealer for service and that is where the car is now. While driving 75 mph, the vehicle experienced a complete loss of power and the transmission overheating warning indicator illuminated. The failure mileage was approximately 106,000.
Luckily the car still under warranty and my warranty is almost over so I'm glad they were able to handle this. Along with the torque, you also receive a 6-speed manual transmission gearbox to have the terrain. The vehicle was taken to the dealer on three different occasions. We bought it so we can visit our farm that is 8 hours away. The ac was being used. Extremely dangerous as unable to steer and entire engine shuts done.
Not sure if this is a good solution. While you can probably drive safely to your next destination, you want to have your right away to stave off further issues and ensure optimal vehicle performance. We were traveling on the highway for about an hour at a speed of 70 mph when he car sounded like it was in low gear. One tech even said that this is the way the cvt works and I'd have to get used to it. My boat weighs approx 1700lbs. They proceded to go around me and pulled abruptly in front of me and braked.
It started, however the engine light stayed on. After all, your car is among the biggest purchases you will ever makesecond only to purchasing a house. Scary if it happens in the middle of the freeway with lots of traffic. The failure mileage was 38,816. Average speeds were between 65 and 75. Really going to look at another vehicle and stay away from Chrysler Jeep.
This happen two days later when turning into parking lot. They had it all day and could not find anything wrong. Several members on Jeep forums recommend replacing transmission cooler thermostat. This has happened off and on for the past two years. It happened 2 more times and were told the same thing again. And what does that mean? It was a warm day, about 94 degrees and driving in wy.
Not sure the exact sensor they were talking about though. Totally unprofessional on their part. In the first recall, affected vehicles in the Patriot and Compass recall are equipped with sensor-activated restraint systems that deploy when a rollover appears imminent, Chrysler said in a statement. This problem has happened 4 times, always when driving during hot weather on highways. I happened again on July 3 and I immediately called Chrysler headquarters and made a complaints and have a case number. They cannot duplicate or find any failure codes for the problem. The vehicle was not repaired.
I was told by the dealership in chantilly, va there is nothing wrong with my engine. Prior to deciding on expensive repairs or to send your vehicle to the junk yard, you will need to create a preliminary diagnosis. I want Jeep to replace the tyranny. Could these lines possibly be replaced with brake lines and clamps for a cheaper fix or are the flex hoses with special fittings the only way to go? The dealer performed a diagnostic test, but was unable to locate a failure code. Until after 35,000 miles, our transmission has overheated on 3 separate times during our road trips. Every recall is registered with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which is where cars.
I pull over to the right and put the car on park and restart the car. As time went on the struggle uphill turned into stalling. We took it into the mechanic and he discovered the smooth transition transmission is faulty and causes the car to overheat. The vehicle was not taken to a mechanic and was not repaired. I have read online that other have had the same problem.
