#222 of 329 replacing transmission at 9000 miles!
Mar 20, 2010 (9:50 am)
I bought a 2009 jeep wrangler unlimited x 4-dr at barton jeep spokane washington in march 2009. For the las 6 months, I have had trouble with the 6 speed manual transmisision magically popping out of gear one to three times a day, Took it bac to the dealer a number of times; they told me that the national jeep data base never showed this occuring before, although the mechanic stated there was some problems with it poppim=ng out of 1st gear. told me it was relted to a boot problem and sometimes a likage problem. kept taking it back and they couldn't find anything wrong with it. finally, they took the tranny apart two weeks ago (still in their shop)am tolld the transmission is trashed. they asked me if it had ever popped out of first gear "as it was fried" told them no that it was third gear.
Hopefully repairs will be done sometime next week. all they offered me for my transportation problems and all the hassles... was a two day rental! whoopee doo!
No wonder jeep chrysler needs a government bail out. won't buy another jeep! They told me "should have bought a warranty" told them "new cars aren't supposed to fall apart.
at least, as the3 original purchaser the power train is covered under a life-time warranty. this warranty does not transfer if vehicle is sold.. You would be a fool to buy a used jeep unless you have the extra cash to buy a new tranny. hope this helps any prosective buyers.... any takers... I have a warn wench and heavy duty warn back front bumpers and tire carrier....?

Does she come with the Jeep?
Unfortunately Jeeps have had problems with the manual transmission for many years, but it's been a lot worse lately. Personally, I think it's a quality control problem rather than a design issue as it doesn't happen to them all.
Obviously it's cheaper for Chrysler to fix them as they arise rather than deal with it at source.
In regard to the warranty, you should still have the original 3/36 which is transferable and should run until 2012 (assuming it was titled in '09).

So, I have a 2010 Wrangler Sport Manual Transmission, I've had it for about a month and the transmission popped out of gear. Then, it popped out of gear once and it won't go back into gear now. All it does is stands there, and this rumbling noise sounds from what sounds the transmission. Any help?

That's what the warranty is for. Call the dealer and have them pick it up and fix it.

#227 of 329 2004 Jeep Sport Transmission problem
Apr 08, 2010 (10:43 am)
I have a 2004 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4.0 automatic. I purchased this over a year ago from a dealership. It drove fine for about a year, and a few months ago, I was driving the vehicle and it dropped down to 3rd gear and would not shift up or down. the check engine light also came on. After parking the vehicle for a while the problem goes away, but comes back after driving a while, and it is getting worse.
I have taken it to several mechanics (Jeep dealer, transmission garage, and normal mechanic) and they all told me my transmission was fine, but I needed a new TCM computer. The dealership charged me $180 just to tell me what I thought the problem was, and they kept it for about two weeks. I bought a computer from all computer resources, they programmed it ad sent to to me. I swapped computers out and it worked great for about 20 minutes, and then the same problem. I have no clue what to do?
Any suggestions would help!!!

I can only guess, but it sounds like you have an intermittent problem either in the transmission or the associated wiring, which either caused the TCM to go bad and has done the same to the new one, or as is more likely, the original TCM was fine and you still have the intermittent problem which is continuing to cause the same symptoms.
Try swapping back the old TCM and see what happens.
I'm rather surprised that after spending $180 for diagnosis you didn't let them finish the job. The labor cost for installing the TCM wouldn't have been high, and if it turns out to be bad it should be covered by at least 12 months warranty.
#229 of 329 Tranny Popping Out of Gear
Apr 13, 2010 (6:45 am)
My service advisor called last week to advise me of a TSB concerning the manual transmission popping out of 1st gear. There has been a redesign of the 1st gear synchronizer. They replaced it and so far no further problem.
I never really had that problem, but thought it best to stay current. We'll see.
