Good morning and welcome to JustAnswer!!

from your question about the trans fluid.. I don't think your qualified... please release my question for other dodge mechanics
Expert:  Brad replied 1 year ago.

I'm a 18 yr Dodge dealership technician.. It says you checked the fluid level, so what did the fluid look like? Burnt or red?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
there is no dipstick for the trans fluid on the calibers...so what way can I check the fluid
Expert:  Brad replied 1 year ago.

I understand that there is no dipstick, but you stated you checked the fluid.. If you really didn't then you will need to have the fluid checked at your nearest Dodge dealership also have the codes checked and make sure the PCM is up to date.. If the fluid is burnt I would replace the transmission because we aren't allowed to rebuild the CVT transmissions yet..

Talk soon,

Brad
