Chrysler has issued a recall for 161,450 Jeep Wranglers from the 2007-08 model years, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The vehicles affected by the recall were manufactured from June 2006-July 2008 and are equipped with an automatic transmission.

These vehicles weren’t equipped with a transmission fluid temperature warning system. Without this system, transmission fluid could boil over and come into contact with a hot engine or exhaust component, which could cause a fire.

Dealers will inspect and install a “hot oil” message in the instrument cluster and a chime indicating an elevated transmission fluid condition. This recall is expected to begin in December.

For more information, owners can call Chrysler at 800-853-1403 or NHTSA’s hotline at 888-327-4236.
