What?

So because a hose came loose you have to rebuild the transmission?

Why do I feel like an idiot for even responding because all of these new threads by people with 1 post are spam anyway.

Sorry I do not know. Some of these transmissions have an overflow but am not sure that is the hose location. Or it could be a hose going to the trans cooler. Have you traced where it ends.

What year and version Charger do you have? Sxt, r/t, scat pack, etc. That will aid identifying the transmission you have.

If you're an actual person I won't be a dick, it just seems that the majority of these threads anymore are spam. As for that hose, I don't know how they can just tell you that you need to rebuild your transmission without saying why.

Unless it's disconnected, it may be the overflow. Has anyone bothered to check the fluid level??????

I am not a dodge mechanic however it looks like a trans vent to me .
Just locate it higher than the trans and you should be ok unless it starts pushing out trans fluid.
If you just let it hang the fluid could drain out the hose as fluid always seeks the lowest level simple gravity applies

Were you having transmission problems before this hose popped off?

I would trace the line and see if it goes to the trans cooler.

Howdy I have a 09 Superbee and I have the same hose. Do you have a picture of the cap as the local dodge dealer can't find a cap part number, they tried twice and received the wrong part. Mine is missing its cap. thank you for your help on this.

That's a transmission vent line.

While it could be a major internal leak or failure causing the problem, it's just as likely to be that your transmission is overfilled or your filter is plugged.

Find a trustworthy mechanic and have him (or her) check the fluid level according to the proper procedure. If the fluid level is correct, I'd try dropping the pan, changing the filter and refilling.

This is one of those jobs best handled at the dealership. I wouldn't trust a side mechanic or even most general auto repair shops. The dipsticks are special tools that Mopar sells for $70 each believe it or not. Some of the cheap $20 imitations have been known to get stuck. Dealers for sure have the special tool. Mine was leaking like 14 months after a new transmission. It turns out it was overfilled so they pumped out some of the fluid. Once they make sure your fluid is at the right level, go to Home Depot and pick up a 48" zip tie. Check the fluid when the transmission is cold and mark the dipstick. Good luck.
