Customer Question
I have a Chrysler...

I have a Chrysler Jeep Cherokee 2205 that I just had a new engine put in. I got it back and drove it less than 12 miles and then the check engine light came on and the dealership said I had to have a new transmission at the cost of 973.00. I’ve never had any problems with my transmission could this have been caused by something that was done at the time of installation of the motor.

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

The light only came on once.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Cherokee?

2005

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Cherokee yourself? What have you tried so far?

I took back to the dealership that installed the new motor and charged me 5053.00 and the very next day the transmission goes out according to them and they now want to charge me $973.00 for the repairs and kept my car for 3 months to fix it. I’ve never experienced transmission problems ever with this vehicle.

The code was T0876
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
They said there was water in the deal or something to that effect.

Excuse me I meant to say seal
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I hate to be a bother but I need an answer soon since I have to meet with the dealership shortly.
Dodge Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

The code would be a P0876, was this the only code, did they recheck the fluid level to be sure its full?

He said it was was a T0876 not P they said there was water in the fluid
Dodge Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

There is no code T0876 , and if you have water in the fluid and it was run that way for any period of time then it could have damaged the transmission. Seems pretty odd to me that it was working okay before you have the engine replaced.

Well if you were able to drive it back to the dealer to have the check engine light being on checked, that sure does not sound like you need a new transmission. I think if I where you I would get a second opinion before you consider replacing the transmission. Even the cost of a replacement transmission they are quoting is suspicious. The average price on a reman Jeep Transmission usually runs $1500 or more.
