Going to Have to Have the Jeep Towed In (Anyone Else?)...
Friday before heading to the track I had my hometown dealer install another trans gasket as it was leaking ever so slightly. Much to my dismay today, after driving 110 miles back to my present residence I find a large red puddle of trans fluid under her. I take a peak at the pan and I can see a visible drip. At this point I'm not a happy camper.
I back the Jeep out of the garage in order to get some crap out from in front of it and park it on the street for maybe 45 minutes. Getting ready to pull it back in I can already see a small red puddle under her. At this point I'm pretty pissed.
Then the kicker. Pulling it back into the garage (I'm talking 50' tops and I have my GF do it so I can watch) it drips the entie way (more of a solid line actually) up and back in. After it's parked it literally begins to pour out in three solid lines. I'm guessing it probably lost 1/4 of a quart or more just then. At this point I'm looking for something to bash my head against.
There's no way in hell I'm driving the Jeep in to the dealership where I got it (20 miles and I don't want to hurt the trans.) so I'm going to have to call roadside assistance. My question is, has anyone else had to get towed anywhere? I'm guessing they'll need a flatbed but I've heard rumors about the front clip getting torn off in the process. Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.
