transmisson on 05 WK 5.7

Lately when I have been driving and then let off the gas, the transmission has been shifting down kind of hard. It also shifts hard going from P to R or D to R. Any ideas on what it is or what to do?

It could be the Front Differential Mount Bushing. This will cost you $500 w/ Labor and Parts from the Dealership.

That part itself costs $200.

yep the front bushings are about 45 a piece (there are 2) and the front mount is about 125 bucks... that is likely your harsh shift into and out of neutral... your driving harsh downshift may be another concern though.

Re: transmisson on 05 WK 5.7

Would getting it tuned have any positive or negative effect on how that might feel?

Re: transmisson on 05 WK 5.7

What do you mean by Tuned? Like with a Programable Tuner like a Diablo Sport? It wouldn't hurt it at all, but I would suggest fixing it if it's bothering you.

Yeh a tuner, just don't know what brand yet. But I was going to postpone that if the bushings are pretty serious.

Re: transmisson on 05 WK 5.7

I have the same problem. Where is a good place to get bushings?
