Thanks for the info, will act soon. Do you know if this is it or will there be other issues with the tranny, like the rest of the problems I am reading about?

Whaddya Know???!?!?!?

Finally Chrysler told us AWD peeps what the *&#^ is going on. Well actually they just issued that sad ass statement and didn't even mention the people that have been wondering what is going on with their ordered vehicles..

They knew prior to September 15th what the problem was...

They knew WAY prior to September 15th what the problem was...

But they still could not let the people so patiently waiting for their AWD 300C's what was going on... they just kept the dealers in the dark... and pissed off a couple thousand people...

That's my vent....

Hopefully my car will be built soon... DAMNIT!

There is really no way to predict what issues will eventually be addressed by TSB's as so many factors are involved, such as the number of vehicles affected, seriousness of and complication level of issues, "workable" solutions and so on.

This TSB is unrelated to the function of the NAG1.

Early T-cases employed a short vent located on top of the t-case.

Design has since changed and now a 'pass through' vent is used; the t-case uses the vent system of the trans.

Water was getting into the t-case and reacting w/the friction disc causing shutter and slip. Best way to check yours is to put the vehicle into full steering lock (maximum driveline load) and perform figure 8s (5 mph or less), forward and reverse.

A drone-type sound will be heard if the t-case disc is slipping.

Good luck.

Can someone tell me if this is what I'm experiencing:
For example if I'm on a highway entrance ramp with the lights activated, I move bit by bit brake then gas etc till it's my turn to go on green, I hit the gas and it almost sounds like the rear brake is stuck on. Like a rubbing type noise. Has happened about 4 times in the past two days. I stopped in my work parking lot and then gave it medium throttle about 3 times and it did it on the third time. Sorry if this sounds like a 3 year old wrote this thread it's been a long day :)
Thanks

I am disgusted. I just brought my AWD 300C in because several days ago the tranny or transfer case started to shutter and catch and vibrate at low speeds. It even vibrates the panels on the car at times. This is all at low speed and under light power. Like every other issue with the car the statment is "We cannot duplicate it" I about wanted to drive the car through the service bay door, as it did it as I drove away, but of course no techs available then. I even comment on it was unbelievable to me that someone knowledgable in the cars could not feel and hear the problem. They said they did a flash anyway and that would correct the situation.

Ive owned subarus for the past 20 years and purchased a 2001 GMC Denali XL in 2001 without any problems for 79,000 miles. This gave me the faith to purchase another american car only to find that the dealers have learned nothing in the past 20 years. You are talked to like a 2 year old and they have never ever had any of the issues before. Yea right.

Well I am going to try to find some type of area rep next and Hopefully will feel good enough to continue bragging about my ride to others instead of letting them know of getting hosed by Chrylser.

Well I feel better now, hope to get this resolved soon.

I know this is an old post, but if I have 92,000 miles on my 2005 300C AWD, and I have the parking lot shudder, with the TSB still apply to my car? We bought the planetary cap cover, fluid and sealer thinking that would fix the problem. Not sure yet how to replace them though?
