Transmission Leak...

Well my R/T became the latest victim of the infamous O-Ring seal tranny leak. The car has 10415 miles on it and just 2 days ago I started to notice some fluid on the garage floor under the car. Took it in the my dealer this morning and sure enough it was the O-Ring that was leaking. They took care if it no problem and I'm on my way to pick her up now.

I wonder what percentage of our cars have had this issue?


2006 Inferno Red Charger R/T 2.063; 5.815; 8.907@78.56; 11.584; 13.839@99.63

about 90% I'd wager. the other 10% just haven't started leaking yet.

...I tend to agree with you Gentleman Jack! It does seem like there are alot of guys having this issue. The dealer changed out the whole plug not just replaced the O-ring seals. I wonder does the replacement have a slight design change? Is this still an issue with the '07 Chargers?

So, are the replacement o-rings holding up? Or can I expect this to be a recurring issue?

So far so good! I have not seen anyone post anything about the leak re-accruing after getting it fixed the first time. Then again not enough time may have past to really know.
