No Bleeder issue????

I was told by the service manager that the "sloshing" of liquid I have been hearing since they replaced my transmission at 6500 miles is due to the fact the vehicle doesn't come equipped with a "bleeder" in the cooling system. He stated that over time it will simply just go away???? Any advice? I do not feel comfortable with this answer.

Not sure if they have to open the cooling system to replace the transmission on the Renegade, but based on your description it sounds like they did and did not get all the air out of your cooling system. If that is the case then I would think that they can fix that with several heat cycles and topping off the coolant after each.

Thanks for responding, I really appreciate advice. I hope that works to resolve the noise. I have anxiety driving my Jeep after the $12,000 worth of warranty work they have done on it. When I hear a sound like "sloshing" after a transmission replacement, it doesn't sit well with me or them stating "it will just go away"

I'm pretty sure that most shops use a vaccuum system to fill and eliminate air from coolant lines. The system hooks a fill line to one hose and draws vacuum on the other, then circulates the liquid until all air is out. Maybe they don't have that system?

"I'm pretty sure that most shops use a vaccuum system to fill and eliminate air from coolant lines."

That's how the book states that it should be done on my Dodge Challenger. I will assume it is the same to use a vacuum system on the Renegade too.

And it makes sense that you would have to bleed the cooling system if your car has a transmission cooler (the Trailhawk does). But it is up to the skill of the technician to do it correctly.

The service manager said he had to put in almost a quarter of coolant and then told me when I get my Jeep back that I need to run though heat cycles then it will go away on its own. Right not my Jeep is in service for faulty drivers side seat belt (won't click in) water pooling in the passenger door, and non stop squealing breaks. They ordered me a new seat belt and wanted me to pick it up and drive it until it came in. I had to call the owner of the dealership and told him I would contact the police if they didn't get me a loaner. He immediately called Chrysler and got me a rental. I can't believe they wanted me to drive my Jeep without my seatbelt working.
