Re: Transmission Shudder

I will try this again. I have a 2011 Wrangler 3.8 w auto trans. When I try to back up there is a shutter, which I believe is the trans. Maybe the differential but I do not believe so. The more throttle I apply it will smooth out. Does the computer need to be adjusted or is it a basic mechanical problem. There is only 22,000 miles on it. Any answers anyone ?

Spent $1000 bucks to create a major problem. I took it back the next week for the shudder problem that was described. They saw that the drive shaft was leaking through the yoke and replaced the whole drive shaft. After getting on the highway noticed the problem was still there. Made the appointment to take it in this week on Tuesday morning. Made sure that i had a ride along with the service manager. He was able to duplicate it, really impossible to miss, but wanted to make sure he knew what it felt like so he could make sure it would be working before i got it back.

I have called every day this week to get updates, thumbs up their asses. They have no idea what is wrong. They applied all the software updates and still no improvements. Its pretty frustrating, researched the lemon law for GA and it doesn't cover used cars. Which i got used with 9k Miles on it two years ago. Looks like I'm stuck with this unless I trade it in.

Anyone have any fixes? i know there were some mentions of the torque converters and the transmission plates.

Re: Transmission Shudder

Thanks for the info all the way around especially about programming. Mine is different. Mine shutters when starting from a dead stop, back up a slight incline and it starts. I apply a little more pedal and it smooths out. This only happens between 0 mph and 5 mph. I was going to take it and have a tweek done on the computer to see if that solves it, I hope !!! On level or steep incline it does not do it, just on a slight incline.

Can anyone suggest a fix for both of us !!!
