Tranny Shifts Hard Into Drive After Going In Reverse

Hey all, I'm new to the site and a new owner of an 05 GC Limited w/ the 5.7

I have been having the issue described in the title...

When I go in reverse, come to a complete stop (I never let it roll and throw it into drive), and shift into drive my Jeep kicks hard. It doesn't do it all the time and there is not a pattern to it happening. The dealer had said it was not an issue (since its under warranty). I will be taking it back to them before the warranty is up because I don't think its normal. What do you guys think?

Thanks

-Dave

Re: Tranny Shifts Hard Into Drive After Going In Reverse

mine did it too. check your tranny fluid. also a common issue with the 5.7 hemi is the crankshaft position sensor but im not sure if this is caused from that..

Re: Tranny Shifts Hard Into Drive After Going In Reverse

I had a similar problem, check to see if you can use the manual shift to go from 1 to 2 to 3 and so on.

Report back!

Re: Tranny Shifts Hard Into Drive After Going In Reverse

Im having the same problems, from reading other posts ive come to realize that it can be a few things, one: my fluid is low or needs to be flushed and have clean fluids put in. Two: the sensors in your shifting bezel are dirty or going out, ive looked more into that and as crazy as it seems that can cause things to shift differently. mine shifts hard from R to D. and if i dont let my tranny fully engage sometimes it gets stuck into 3rd gear. i have to put it back in park, turn it off and start over. then it goes back to normal. i havent done the tranny fluid change yet but i will be with-in a week or two. ill make sure to keep you posted to see if it cures any of these problems

Re: Tranny Shifts Hard Into Drive After Going In Reverse

I've seen this before. It was either front diff mounts or transfer case mounts. Can't remember which.

Front differential bushing. I had mine replaced after the 3/36 warranty, NOT covered under the added care plus warranty

Re: Tranny Shifts Hard Into Drive After Going In Reverse

Never ever ever flush the transmission. This has been stated by Chrylser. You can cause more harm when flushing.

Only drain and refill.

Flushing is only required when something goes bad in your transmission like dirt or debris for whatever reason.

How much did that front differential bushing run you?


The manual shift works great from 4-3 and 3-4 but I will have to check the lower gears. I have to bring it back into the dealership because its still under warranty and my park assist is not working (still after I told them to fix it) so I will have them check those problems too when I get a chance to bring it in.

I am going to take a look at it all tomorrow and see whats up and report back.

Thanks for the input everyone

$30

But the labor cost close to $400

Re: Tranny Shifts Hard Into Drive After Going In Reverse

Dealership said there is a TSB for this problem. Said it was a few things that needed to be changed within the transmission and was covered by warranty. Got away with only paying a co-pay for all of the work. Seems to work like new again.

Thanks for the help everyone,

What was the TSB # or what work was performed to fix the problem?

Did you just have the bad one done or both (pressed ones)for that labor? I'm about to get this done hopefully next week.
Thx
