I'm new to this site & I'm having a problem w/ my Jeep. Hope you can help!
I have a 06 JGC, Laredo. It has about 81k miles on it now. I purchased it back in April. Shortly after, I noticed the downshift was a little rough sometimes.
About a month ago, while trying to merge onto the freeway, I needed to speed up to merge.. well, I stepped on the gas and then realized that I wouldnt be able to speed up fast enough and took my foot off the pedal to slow back down... well, this caused a really
rough downshift, and I lost all power, like the car shifted into Neutral, it just rev'd when I press the accelerator. My Check Engine light came on & I had to pull over, put the car into park & then was able to put it back into gear & get going.
I stopped at home, planning to take the car to the dealer the next day. When I went to start it up again, the light was off... so I didnt do anything. It ran normal until this weekend...
2 days ago, I was driving on the hwy about 55mph and my ABS, traction control & ESP/ BAS lights all came on at the same time. I noticed no difference in the driving or braking and nothing to indicate to me there was a problem.
Today, I was speeding up to get on the freeway just like ^^ and I lost all power and my check engine light came on. I drove directly to the dealer. It threw the code P0730 and a code about the Right Rear Wheel Speed Circuit (sorry, dont have the code #)
Dealer says they need to take out the tranny & tear it apart to find the problem. I bought a Power Train warranty w/ it back in April. The Dealer told me that they dont know if the warranty will cover it until they have it out, taken apart and pinpoint what part is bad... at that point, if its not covered, I'm looking at a rebuild of my tranny and some major $$$.
This just doesnt sound right to me... Has anyone been through this before or experienced this problem? Any suggestions on what I should do?
The car runs fine and I am able to drive it.. sometimes it does have a rough downshift but not always.
