My car has 61000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. This is a very difficult answer directly. In general, the parts that mechanically propel your vehicle make up your powertrain. It includes your: Axles (on most vehicles) Differentials Drive shafts Engine Transfer case (on all-wheel drive and four-wheel drive vehicles) Transmission Aside from these parts, each vehicle manufacturer has parts that they include or exclude from their individual powertrain warranties as they see fit. That may be wheel bearings or hubs, axle shafts, exhaust manifolds, and more. You’ll notice that the thermostat or radiator/ cooling system is not listed here. You should contact Chrysler directly to get answers to your questions.
