Question about 2007 Dodge Caliber SXT Sport Hatchback
Hi, I had a 2007 Dodge Caliber SXT with that crappy transmission in it, I had the same problem at or around approx. 60,000 miles. When I first purchased it the transmission was seamless through the ratios, after a while I noticed a hesitation lets say from first to second gear, and it kept getting worse and I felt it through most "gears". I also lost a lot of power and got worse fuel mileage. I asked my mechanic and he told me to take it to the dealer because of the type of transmission in it. Well they told me that I needed it flushed ($280 later) and it didn't work, it made it worse. I went online and did some research on it and found that there are many people with the same problem, the Chrysler corporation knows about it but doesn't want to issue a recall because it would cost too much to replace the transmissions in all cars sold. The actual problem with mine was the transmission control module which costs roughly around $1,000 to replace and shortly after that the transmission fails and that is approx. $6,000-$7,000 to replace that.

You'll notice what appears to be a dipstick tube at the front of the vehicle on the drivers side, and it should have a warning label to use CVT oil. But when you remove the top, there's no stick. The dipstick itself is a "special tool" (Miller No. 9336). The stick is marked for fluid levels for different temperatures, although there is an acceptable range.
Read the instructions carefuly that come with the tool
