I wouldn't think so being they should not of even touched the trans
Me neither, but I tend not to believe in coincidences. I wouldn't have even looked underneath, but the smell from the labels burning off the new cats seems to be taking quit a while to go completely away.

Finally decided to have this done. Went off without a hitch. Exhaust tips perfectly aligned. Car runs great. However, I noticed a small puddle of transmission fluid (M6) on the garage floor. Could be a coincidence, but is there anything the tech could have done in the process to cause this?

I'm taking it in next week to get it checked out.
Sounds like you do have a HITCH. you didn't have an oil leak before.

Since the replacement, mine smells like chit, during wot. Weird fuel burn, or cats haven't burned in, yet.

I roll the windows up, to keep the stank out, otherwise... man that really lingers, in the car (the exhaust).

I'd post a video, but no smell-o-vision, yet. LOL

The invoice stated the tech did a multi-point inspection. Best case scenario might be the transmission fluid was checked and over filled or spilled somehow. At least that’s what I’m hoping.

I keep getting emails from Dodge telling me to schedule the recall. I dont really care if it fails emissions in Calafornistan. My car runs good, it dont stink, it dont leak oil, it has no dents, or scratches, So they can go ! make up your own ending LOL
