Recall on Transmission dipstick tube

Postby jleach76 [OP] » Nov 09 2012, 9:50pm

Will they are recall some trucks due to the transmission dipstick tube cracking. Mine is going in on Monday and they say if it is not cracked then they add something to it so it does not crack. Keep watching your mail you will get one soon!

This has been posted before garcia so if you search for it you might find a year range.

I had mine replaced last May on my truck. I went to check it one day and the tube had broke off and came with the dipstick.
