Ohh noooooessss, I have the shudder :(

Going home from work on Monday I went to pass a guy driving to slow and when it downshifted from 40mph it felt like the vehicle was going to shake itself apart. Only does it between 40-60mph and when gouging the throttle to pass from a sustained speed.

Brought it in today, the only rapid response that was to be done was the ESC TSB. They drove it after that and couldn't replicate. I picked it up, made it two blocks and I got it to do it twice. Turned around, took the tech for a ride and got it to do it for him twice. They are talking to corporate to see what to do.

I don't know what my build date is, I have been meaning to look. I bought it late December from the dealer.

Lets hope they find a solution soon and I hope it isn't too intrusive, I just hate the thought of some tech taking my trasmission apart.

I will keep everyone updated. The dealer has been nice so far, took me to and picked me up from work.

:fingers crossed:

Re: Ohh noooooessss, I have the shudder :(

How many miles are on your vehicle?
I don't have it (yet), but I'am dying to hear if the member who is getting his torque converter replaced still has the shudder afterwards or not....

Re: Ohh noooooessss, I have the shudder :(

Between my Limited 9,800 miles and my Laredo 5,500 miles I can say it's not as bad as it was when they were new. 40 MPH is where it does it if it does.

Re: Ohh noooooessss, I have the shudder :(

just turned 4000 miles

40mph is when it is worse for me

Anyone have the link to the guy getting the torque converter replaced? I remember reading it and I wanted to follow his story.

Re: Ohh noooooessss, I have the shudder :(

hopefully thats fixed before my Overland gets built in a few months. "Shaking itself apart" is not something I want my Jeep to be doing. That cant be good for anything (tranny, engine, etc etc).

Re: Ohh noooooessss, I have the shudder :(

Just got off the phone with the dealer and they said chrysler said it was an isolator. I will give them a shot at it. They said it encompasses August to January build dates.

Mine is November for reference.

Part is ordered, we shall see......

For reference I believe Milius touches on this here.

1. Axle isolator p/n 52124632AD

MODS: If you want, you can merge with that thread. I did have the new ESC TSB done and it did not fix it. All other TSB's had been done.

To be clear a purely factual, I assume it is this, they didn't give me a part number.

Re: Ohh noooooessss, I have the shudder :(

Ditto
Ditto
Ditto!!

I have 8,200 miles. Born on 11/17/10. My shudder was worse during the first 5,000 miles. I had the Rapid Response update this morning and haven't driven enough for any feedback.

My service technicians weren't able to reproduce and they think I'm a loon!



I'm also anxious to find out if a new torque converter fixes the problem. Then I need to figure out how to convince the dealer I need one... Maybe I should read The Art of War. Or is there a How to Make Your Service Technician Believe You For Dummies book anywhere?

Confirmed the part number, this is infact the isolator they are replacing.

I was told that if the ECS flash TSB didn't fix the problem that they are supposed to try this next. I am skeptical but at the same time hopeful.
