WASHINGTON — Chrysler is recalling an estimated 180,131 2012-'13 Jeep Wranglers because the power steering line may contact and wear a hole in the transmission oil cooler line, resulting in a loss of transmission fluid, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"A loss of transmission fluid may result in a loss of transmission function, which may increase the risk of a crash," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem.

The affected Wranglers are equipped with a 3.6-liter V6 engine and an automatic transmission. They were built from January 23, 2011 through February 23, 2013.
