Re: Transmission Shudder

I had a 2011 overland hemi 4x4, did the same plus other problems. Traded it in on a new 2012, exactly the same just different color, hoping the first was just a bad vehicle. My new one does it now after about 1200 miles so I'm hating chrylser right now. Long story short, took mine in to the dealer, got vocal, got a copy of a chrysler service bulletin concerning this issue. They call it shudder/fishbite, involving the torque converter. There is a possible fix that should be available feb 2013. I don't believe its a torque converter problem. The shop foreman told me it was a lean issue. He hit it right on the head. To meet epa guidelines and to increase gas mileage the computer is not giving the engine enough gas during light to medium acceleration, basically starving the engine. That is exactly what my jeep feels like its doing, sputtering up the hills. There are no fixes for this right now. The only hope is if someone comes out with a chip or programmer that can modify the fuel settings. If there are any programmers for these jeeps let me know.

Re: Transmission Shudder

I have a 2011 5.7 overland I have the same problem but I have noticed that it has gotten a little quicker getting out of that shudder when it happens since I switched to royal purple or it could be just wishful thinking

Re: Transmission Shudder

mine did this the other day on the highway, on cruise at ~65mph on a long uphill climb. I had read about it, felt to me more like an engine mount sway. hit the tow button and it went away.

Now, if there was a way to disable mds and operate the tranny as you wish independently, you could figure out which of the 2 systems is causing the issue. In the mean time, I'll reach down and press the button until the load reduces.

Re: Transmission Shudder

My 2012 Limited 5.7 still has the shudder. I've tried Tow/Haul mode, Sport mode, cruise control, lower gear - it shudders in all these modes.

Had it to the dealer yesterday for the second time about this. I took the mechanic for a drive and he agreed it shudders. He updated the PCM software.

It still shudders.
