JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Hi Welcome to Just Answer! How many miles are on your jeep?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
57,xxx..... I did have a bad smell coming in form the vents. I took it to a Jeep dealership and they said everything was fine and it didn't make sense to check the clutch unless it wasn't working. Basically said if you check it, you should replace it.

Just hoping not a transmission issue
Expert:  b5demon replied 10 months ago.

with the smell you are getting and the trans shifting issue it sounds like the clutch is the issue

Does(###) ###-####sound like a correct estimate?
Expert:  b5demon replied 10 months ago.

if the clutch is slipping it will need to be replaced nothing really to check with it. Yes that sounds like a good estimate
