Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 152014

Grand Cherokee Limited V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 61,000 miles


My transmission dip stick strikes the oil pan before the dip stick is fully inserted. The top T Handle would have to travel-insert-about an inch more for the "O" ring to properly seal inside the top of the tube. I discovered this when I replaced the transmission filters/oil. The DS inserted fully at the top of the tube with the pan removed. I verified that I had the correct DS at two Jeep Dealerships. I also compared my DS with my friends 03 Jeep GC, he has exactly the same problem and the same DS. I did not rely on the DS when I added fresh oil but rather relied on instructions shown in my repair manual.
