Air Suspension Jolt?

When parked, for any amount of time, the vehicle jolts forward right after starting the jeep. It feels similar to putting the car in drive while revved a little. Its hard to describe. I suspect the air suspension is trying to level the vehicle at start up. I have had this problem intermittently for about 6 weeks. Has anyone else experienced this phenomenon?

That doesn't sound like air suspension to me, more like drive line slack?

Mine has done this a few times. Right after I start the engine I will feel a bump almost like someone bumped into me. I would say its done it 6 or 7 times.

Re: Air Suspension Jolt?

What concerns me is that it does it more frequently, more like 6 or 7 times a week

This a Jeep problem. I know at my car wash they've had Jeeps takeoff on them after starting. Now they turn on the hazards lights of any Jeep at the wash and only the managers can drive them. The problem is bigger than air suspension.

Re: Air Suspension Jolt?

There was a recall for this back on 1998 Grand Cherokees.

Re: Air Suspension Jolt?

Mine does the same thing. Feels like someone bumped the back of your Jeep when you start it.
