I perused the threads and have been unable to find anything specific to this. If anyone can point me to an existing thread or provide some input, it would be greatly appreciated!
I have a 2011 Limited 5.7L with 22K on it and it is kept in our garage every night. Occasionally (1 or 2 x's a month) when I head out to work, I start it up and shift into R and get either 1) Nothing for a few seconds, pressing the gas just revs the engine then all of a sudden the gear catches and away I go in reverse. OR... I shift in to R and the Jeep starts to roll... slowly (almost like I was on a slight incline) but adding gas does nothing to speed the roll and again it catches and back to normal. The symptom can last anywhere from 1 to maybe 4 seconds.
I took it into the shop the first time (feb '11) I experienced it and the tech told me this is not uncommon for a Chrysler/Jeep transmission. Gave me some crap about a delay in the hydraulics being normal??
Finally got tired of it and took to the shop again in September. They ran some updates, flashed, hooked up a computer and had one of their guys drive it for a few days and of course they could not duplicate the event and basically said tough. Call us if it happens again and let us check it again. Well it's happened 3 or 4 times since.
I know this is not normal. My wife's identical '11 (diff color) has NEVER done this. Any suggestions on direction to give the shop next time I take it in? Anybody else had a similar problem? Would love any help you can provide!!
