Does anyone know where I can find a copy of this Star center case K38556860 concerning the input shaft grease causing the transmission to stick in gear?

I took my 2009 SRT8 for this while it was still under the 3yr/36 and they said it was "normal". He even got it stuck in gear when parking on a incline. He told me, yea that's because you're not using the parking brake first. I was so pissed off. I have only owned manual cars, it's not normal you idiot. THEN he told me it may be being caused by my MOPAR SHIFT KNOB :lol:. At that point I was beyond done with that dealership. 50k and it still sticks on me every now and then. Oh well, love the car and just use the parking brake first. Very rare for it to happen while I'm driving so I don't really notice it anymore.I took mine in for this a WEEK ago and they still refuse to fix it. I have had it in several times for this and they always couldn't reproduce it and finally the tech was with me and it happened. Now the dealership is blaming dodge on not wanting to fix it under warranty and dodge is blaming the dealership. Its a bunch of horse $H!T. Im not going to pay them $450 to do something that has been wrong for the last 40k miles.
That's a little extreme. Not everybody with a 6 speed has had such a horrible experience. It's unfortunate you've had to deal with crappy service at a dealership but that can happen to anyone with any car. Keep in mind people have put over 1000 hp through the stock internals of the TR-6060 without issues, and there is a reason why it's in the Viper. To say it's a "Disaster of a tranny" is a little over the top. I think your problem is just some morons at your dealer who don't care and don't want to own up to a problem properly. If you can't trust them then go somewhere else.Yellow Jacket, I couldn't agree with you more.
The service writer I encountered had the freaking balls to tell me a 130.00/hr diagnostic fee was applicable to diagnose my tranny problem which is under warranty. I finally called Chrysler care today because after 10 days and the car sitting still sitting in their overcrowded lot and they haven't even looked at is simply unfathomable to me.
Not to mention the fact that I had to wait two weeks for the privilege of an appointment, like they are doing me a favor.
My biggest fear is the condition my car will be returned to me, they have to tear apart the interior to get the shift handle off, remove the after market exhaust, remove the tranny, disassemble, replace probably 1st, 2nd, 3rd, syncros, clutch bearing who knows what else, then they will tell me nothing is under warranty and it will cost 5K or something.
Even if it doesn't cost me anything, say the 100.00 warranty deductible, I fear it will never be the same, it will never shift like it used to, the interior will be ripped or the shifter leather torn, dents in the door because the tech weighted 300lbs and couldn't get his fat smelly ass in there correctly so he opened the door all the way and the door hit the lift. Guess what I am saying here is that they will never treat it they way I would treat it, with kid gloves.
I baby this car, bought new on 12/2009 and only has 27K on it. Haven't even done a burnout yet, I know I know, at least the original tires still have some tread left...lol
I hope the Chrysler Care rep calls me back and tell me the diagnostic fee is NOT applicable and will be waived because calling the dealer has lead to one lame excuse after the other. Really piss poor customer service from the writer to absolutely piss poor management from a tech availability perspective.
I also lodged a complaint to the NHTSA and strongly urge anyone with a 6M Tremec tranny lodge a complaint. If they receive enough complaints they will launch an investigation and hopefully lead to a recall which would cost Chrysler and Tremec money, then maybe they will finally own up to this disaster of a tranny that is in the Challenger, Camaro SS and GT500.
TREMEC = FAIL
I've done the research and I've asked around, as well as owned one. I stand by my opinion as well.Um, the Viper may have the same designed tranny but certainly has better internals so it is not exactly the same tranny is it?
Just ask around, do some research read the Camaro and GT500 forums.
I stand by my opinion TREMEC = JUNK,
