Recalled: Jeep Wranglers for Dirty Skid Plate
Fire could result on 2010 models with automatic transmissions.
The transmission skid plate, one of several metal shields designed to protect the underbody from rocks and other off-road obstacles, can simply hide dirt and other unwanted trash, which could lead to a fire because it is located next to the hot catalytic converter. Chrysler will replace the skid plate with a new skid bar starting this month.
As always, you can call Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403 for more information and to find out if your Wrangler is affected.
"The problem isn't with the transmission, it's with the skid plate. Flammable debris (grass, twigs, etc.) "
Oh and that's not a problem right beltwhipped? Seems like an engineering flaw to me because again, do you this happening to any other vehicles? Please put down the crack pipe beltwhipped and step into reality!
Is this fire risk more plausible than the Acura power steering hose leak you lambasted recently or are you simply using displacement?
