3.6L engine shudder coming to a stop

I had my engine start to shudder coming to a stop and while I was sitting at a light this afternoon... 233 miles on it. Engine light came on. Got it through the intersection and pulled over.

Called Roadside and they got a wrecker out to me and I got it towed to a dealership. The truck started right up and ran smooth when tow truck driver pulled it off the truck and into the service lane for the morning. Decided to not take a chance and have it checked out.

Could this be a transmission issue that I see people talking about? Up until then, I had no issues whatsoever and it ran pretty smooth. It was in Eco mode.

Kind of sucks because all the service depts were close in the area and I couldn't get a loaner. Good then the tow truck driver could drop me off at my house so I could drive my car....

I don't think that it's the transmission. You got a check engine light so it's probably something else.

I took delivery of my Limited this past Saturday. While I was waiting for them to bring it to me, some guy pulled in with another Limited complaining about the engine, and that it was only two weeks old. I'm not sure what was wrong, but reading your thread made me think of it. I hope I don't have any issues with mine. Do keep us posted when you find out more information.

Re: 3.6L engine shudder coming to a stop

Hoping to hear something this afternoon. They also found that some some stuff hadn't been done like a recall and RRBs (?) for the body control module and the half shafts. They were also going to check all the software to make sure it is all up to date as well.....

Time for a nastygram I think

Ended up being a loose connection to the crankshaft position sensor.
