Trans cooling line leak (big time)
Well I was hoping my 2002 Trep, like my previous Eagle Vision would never have to set foot in dealership for repairs.
I had a half hour highway drive home last night, pull in front of the driveway, put it into reverse (usually back the car in) and Oops, must have put it in neutral instead cause it's not backing up, so I look to the cluster and no, it's in reverse. I try accelerating again and it starts reversing, now I put it in forward (to straighten out) and it doesn't wanna go for about 2 secs.
Well I'm pissed, :mad:( I had a tiny leak last week, tightened the clamp where the trans cooling line goes into the rad and the leak stopped, checked the tans level and all's good) . So I get the trouble light out and the Tranny fluid is still dripping but from the pressed end (the aluminum fitting where the hose goes from rubber to metal)
I guess it'll be towed to the dealer. Does the warranty cover the tow truck bill. Also I'm thinking the least they have to do is replace the line and change my tranny fluid. Any thoughts?
:crazy: :mad: :angry: :(
In case this is common, I would ask that you keep an eye on your tranny fluid level and hoses for leaks. I say this because they've changed these fittings to clamps a little while back from the supplier.
