Customer Question

Where do I get a dipstick for my 06 Commander. Jeep dealership told me that my warranty does not cover the transmission coolant hoses and I want to know why? I have a leak and need to repair on my own.

Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. Order the dipstick from any Jeep dealership part dept. I would not rely on the aftermarket for a dipstick. They have been seen to be incorrect. It is not worth it to buy a non-Jeep dipstick.

Regarding the warranty, it depends on which warranty you have. Some warranties are 'bumper to bumper', and other warranties are pretty much not worth the paper they are printed on. Traditionally, 'soft parts', are what Jeep considers "soft parts". Soft parts are things that require normal replacement over time, because they endure wear. Belt, shoses, spark plugs, filters, mufflers, vacuum hoses, etc are all 'soft parts'. ie they are routinely replaced over time or maintenance recommendations.

If you are going to repair the leak yourself, use new parts that are designed for this purpose. Using the wrong hose will lead it to burst and leak. Use new clamps if this system uses clamps (some do, some do not)....If the hoses have fittings at both ends, use genuine Jeep parts. If you have any questions, please feel free to reply.
