Feels like it's skipping

My 2012 Overland 5.7 Hemi feels like it's skipping when I'm going about 65 on the Interstate. Only when I go up hills. Anyone know what is going on? It skips probably 5 or 6 times a least. Like it's starving for fuel.

2string1, Did this service bulletin resolve your issue? I am off to the dealer to see if it will solve my issue.

Re: Feels like it's skipping

Yes it did. It feels snappier now. I think it changes the shift points.

Re: Feels like it's skipping

Thank for letting me know. That sounds great. I have an appointment tomorrow morning at the dealer to get this service bulletin applied.

I am needless to say very excited and optimistic that this will cure the problem. In every other respect I like the vehicle and hope to drive it a couple hundred thousand miles.
