O-Ring seal tranny leak

Does anyone know if the 2008 Chargers have the o-ring seal tranny leak problem? From what I see it seems to be mostly 2006 and 2007 models. I'm wondering if they corrected it for 2008.

Speaking about trans. leaks, I got one. They won't even look at it until Friday and I want to check my fluid but I don't know how. The manual says I can't do it, take it to a dealer. That is B.S.!! I'm worried about my fluid level. Is there a way for me to check my fluid???

You need the "dipstick tool" for a 722.6 Mercedes transmission (aka the NAG1 or W5A580 in Chrysler's terms).

Mercedes transmission dipstick tool: Part #: J2024-110887
http://www.autopartsworld.com/2002_m...ick_parts.html


FYI, this is a $60 tool. It's also referred to as a A.140.589.15.21.00

Interestingly (and this is the only instance I've ever come across) the Chrysler part costs more than the Mercedes part. Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep Dealers have Dipstick # 9336 . Which costs $70.

The only way to use this dipstick on LX cars (on some WK Jeeps with the 3.6L they came from the factory with this dipstick... but that was a limited batch) is to break the cover that says "dealer use only."

Oh, here's the fun DIY in case you want to change the fluid in your "sealed for life" W5A580:

That really sucks. I hate dealers. The dumb girl says "just check your fluid if your worried and add some if we can't get you in for service." My car is going to sit at an airport for a week starting this Saturday so, of course, I'm concerned. Stupid dealers!

Fixing the transmission O-ring should be a 30 minute job; lord knows all dealers have done this fix enough times.

Thanks for the advice. I was just worried about the fluid getting too low before they look at it on Friday. I appreciate all you guys' and girls' experience because I am really learning a lot since joining this forum. Also, it is suppose to get down to 1 degree tonight. Do you think it is good to let my car warm up before heading off to work?
