Case Number:
S1021000004

Release Date:
2010-11-04

Symptom/Vehicle Issue:
Transmission is hard to shift into and out of any gear when stopped.
Diagnosis:
When the vehicle is running, but at an idle, verify the vehicle condition by depressing the clutch pedal
and attempting to position the transmission gear selector into any gear. If there is difficulty when
attempting to shift into any gear, perform the outlined repair procedure. Excessive grease on the input
shaft splines collecting excessive amounts of dirt which does not allow smooth movement of the
clutch disc on the input shaft.
Parts Required:
1 P/N 05083150AA , (Grease) As required.
2 P/N 06508880AA , (Clutch Pressure Plate Bolts) 6 Required
Repair Procedure:
1 Remove the transmission as outlined in the service procedures.
2 Clean the transmission clutch hub splines and input shaft splines with mineral spirits.
3 Remove the pressure plate and clutch disc as outlined in the service procedures.
4 Clean the splines on the pressure plate with mineral spirits. Be sure to not allow clutch disc
to become saturated with cleaner.
5 Once the residual solvent has evaporated from the splines on the clutch hub, input shaft
and clutch disc, sparingly grease the entire length of the clutch hub and input shaft splines.
6 Install the pressure plate and clutch disc as outlined in the service procedures. Be sure to
use new pressure plate bolts during re-assembly.
Verification:
Bring vehicle to operating temperature. When at an idle, depress the clutch and attempt to move
gearshift into each gear. There should be no resistance and the gearshift should move freely into all

I had this TSB done about 5k miles ago and it fixed my problem so far.

The 2009s had the wrong grease. It was supposedly fixed in 2010.

Long story short, the dealer and Chrysler made me pay for a new clutch and labor since I have 23k miles and "clutches aren't covered."

Since you have a new car exhibiting this problem they're more willing to fix it, but as I found out the hard way they refuse to cover it under warranty down the road.
Great. Getting my six speed in a few weeks. I thought this Tremic 6060 was supposed to be an animal. I read in modern MOPAR that the clutch was good for 600 hp and gearbox up to 700. False sense of security I guess.

It has been solid for me, only this issue which was not much of a big deal, just did not feel right so took it in. Great call on the stick for this car, don't second guess that or have concerns over the 6 sd.

If the ethanol is the light end of the fuel, maybe we could have a metal pot sitting over an open fire, and pour gas in the pot and let the fire heat it up until the ethanol cooks off

The TR6060 is just fine and can handle whatever you want to throw at it. It just takes some getting used to.
