Re: 2014 CRD + 8-speed: MAJOR shift enhancements/improvements 08/27/14

Bump.

Just had a new valve body put in and although it seems to shift better when accelerating, it is still GOD AWFUL when coasting/braking.

It feels like there is a governor that won't let it coast freely, or like I'm pulling something. Then, once it downshifts, it costs freely until repeating itself when the speed reduces further.

Are there any other options to improve the drive quality? 2nd JGC (first one they bought back), now this one has multiple services , TSBs, valve body, etc.

Re: 2014 CRD + 8-speed: MAJOR shift enhancements/improvements 08/27/14

I bought my jeep gc in october, i have about 7500 miles on it now, but all of a sudden i noticed that from going to gear 2 to 3 it lags, seems like im driving a manual car. Anyone recently having the same problem lately? it is really annoying and i know something is up with it. took it to jeep and they said there was no update for it. I think its a tranny issue but we will see

Had the EXACT same issue. Around 7612miles, my dealer replaced my entire trans. Currently @ 12k ish and problem is starting again. Try this. put your display into trans temp mode, and see if you can narrow down the problem. My would only have rough shifting when the trans temp was under 110 degrees F. After that smooth in any combo of gears (1-2 2-3 5-6 7-6 etc)
Its mo surprise a chrysler has a trans issue, but this is a dialmer/benz design, now owned by the same company that owns Hostess....

No on both accounts. The Benz connection is the chassis, nothing to do with the trans, in fact the 8HP that our 8HP70 stems from was first used by BMW, as was their first 6SP that I have in my Ford.

As for ownership, wrong on a couple of fronts, ZF is not owned by anyone, it acquires other companies. No one really owns Hostess, it was broken up and sold all over the place.

So I take it no one has found an actual resolution other than repeated trips to the dealer and winning the lottery via a TSB (I lost, as my TSB didn't help)?

I would like to know this as well. Taking mine to the dealer on Aug 12th and doing a ride along just so I know they can feel it.

It falls on its face after accelerating at a low speed and letting go of the gas.

Shifting 3-2, it feels like I am letting the clutch out too fast when driving a manual car. It just skips and shudders.

No way a tranny should feel like this. Fix my tranny and this would be the best vehicle ever!

Re: 2014 CRD + 8-speed: MAJOR shift enhancements/improvements 08/27/14

Took a mechanic from the dealership for a ride on Friday. He said they could feel it and to bring it back on Monday because they were back logged on the weekend and wouldn't get to it until Monday.

Drop it off Monday. Called both today and yesterday and they haven't even gotten to it. Wish I could drop it off when they could ACTUALLY do it and not take an uber to and from work every day....

Regardless, hope they have a solution to the problem otherwise I am going to get rid of it for something else because I highly doubt it's supposed to hiccup between gears like this (and I keep getting a run around that it's the torque). Never had problems like this with any other vehicle manufacturer.

Re: 2014 CRD + 8-speed: MAJOR shift enhancements/improvements 08/27/14

My transmission started being rough after they updated it during the last recall for the shifter thing. Has anybody started having issues after that too? What should I do since my powertrain warranty runs out in like 2000km

Took it in and my notes say:

1) Replaced the PCM due to internet failure causing internal damage in the PCM while doing the recall for the shifter. The service adviser said they replaced it because they ran diagnostics on it and it was failing. The notes say otherwise. So not sure who is right here.

2) They did the recall.

3) They did the relearn. Notes said something about the shift points being at zero and now they are at 10.

Haven't felt anything so hopefully that solved my problem.

Brother you got off easy! My local dealer was updating a GC a few weeks back and a power surge fried the laptop and I believe over 15 modules in the car. They had to write off the car through insurance and scrap it after 3 weeks of trying to fix it...customer ended up getting a new GC lol

Took it to the dealership and they are going to put a new valve body in it. Maybe some type of solenoid.

Unfortunately, it is on back order right now.... awesome...

I am going to guess I will be back eventually based on everyone else's responses.
