I picked up a new '15 a few weeks ago. It had all of the recalls done before I picked it up and it does this same exact thing. Not all of the time, but roughly half the time. (i.e. while coming to a full stop at a stop light, there is a clunk from the transmission going from 2 to 1 at a couple of mph. At least I'm assuming it's going from 2 to 1...)

Re: Engine shutter (miss?) at stop light

Could it be potentially be, feeling the AC compressor cycling?

You can enable current gear display in EVIC. A gear number in light grey will then appear next to the "D" or "S" transmission state indicator on the display.

Thanks, I'll try that and report back. Other than that issue, I'd say the diesel + 8 spd combo is quite impressive. I bought a diesel Promaster a few months ago and the computer-controlled manual in that leaves something to be desired, to put it mildly.

Re: Engine shutter (miss?) at stop light

Just posted in another discussion as well, this is not trans related, and its not ac cycling. It feels exactly like a misfire, behaves like a misfire, happens at full stop, sometimes when cold, sometimes when parked for a short period. Ive had the cylinder heads replaced on mine and it didn't do it before that. Mine did it the day I got it back from the dealership and intermittently for months. No codes, dealership can't replicate of course because they would have to drive it for weeks potentially. Pisses me off just as much because I'm driving a vehicle that has an issue.

That is exactly what ours is doing.

It will do it after sitting at a full stop for a bit, so not transmission related and I am fairly sure it is not related to the AC cycling. Even it is was, it is pretty "drastic" that you will actually feel the shutter in the vehicle. It is so intermittent that I I don't even see a point in taking it into the dealership and have then charge me a diagnostic fee and find nothing.

Maybe it is the grade of fuel I am using? What grades are others using? Maybe I am getting some soot build up (what are the symptoms)?

The majority of my driving is in the city (and short trips) - it will be out on the highway for a min 1 hour drive one way every other weekend or so. Maybe that is the issue?

I use top tier fuel typically and it doesn't make a difference when or how far into a tank it happens. It's also not soon buildup because mine happened twice in the past few days, 4 days from a 700km trip pulling a trailer through mountains...I blew all of that out!

Re: Engine shutter (miss?) at stop light

When I start feeling the shudder/miss at idle, I immediately think "replace the air filter." It usually happens between 20k and 30k here in Chicago.
It has cleared it up every time for me so far.

I replaced mine yesterday... Very dirty air filter.

Re: Engine shutter (miss?) at stop light

I have experienced the same thing with my Jeep at idle. I know i am due for a new air filter. I am going to try that and see if it helps. My mileage is 33500 and I want to get it looked at before I'm out of warranty but I hate going to the dealer service.
