2013 Jeep Wrangler Problems

Water May Leak From A-pillar on Side Doors

Water can leak near the A-pillar, at the front edge of the driver and passenger side doors. An improved seal is available.

Dusty Conditions May Cause the Rear Main Oil Seal to Leak

Some models are susceptible to rear main oil seal failures in dirty or dusty conditions. As dirt and dust collect on the oil seal, the abrasion wears through the sealing surface. A spacer is used between the bell housing and engine that has a small slot in the 12 o'clock position. Filling this slot with RTV silicone and cleaning the seal area can help prevent damage to the seal.

Throttle Position Sensor May Fail

The throttle position sensor (TPS) may fail causing intermittent drivability problems like hard starting, stalling, and/or hesitation when accelerating. A failed TPS will require replacement, proper diagnoses should always be performed before replacing any parts.

2013 Jeep Wrangler Recalls

Exterior Heated Mirror Failure

The heated outside rear view mirrors may develop corrosion in the wiring connectors that supply power to them. This can cause a fire hazard. Dealers will modify these wire connectors to provide a separate power feed free of charge to resolve this concern.

Potential Transmission Fluid Leak

The power steering system and automatic transmission each have associated fluid lines. 2012 & 2013 Wrangler models equipped with both of these options are being recalled because a power steering fluid line can rub on one of the transmission oil cooler lines and wear a hole in the transmission line, causing a leak. Loss of transmission fluid can result in failure of the transmission to operate, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the power steering return tube assembly to correct this concern.
