5.7 Hemi transmission??

I have a 2005 5.7L Hemi Jeep Grand Cherokee, limited, with a tow package. It has 91k miles. I put a cold air intake, diablo catch can, and diablo predator sport tuner on it. Shortly after installing the tuner it started giving me some trouble. When I would shift into drive, you wouldn't feel anything, and then when I let my foot off the brake, the car wouldn't move. Once you gave it gas it would act fine. It only does this 2 or 3 times a week. Other than this everything seems fine. There was one time that the vehicle did this and it threw a check engine light. I do not know what the code was tho. When it threw the code the vehicle said it was in 3rd gear and you had to get to about 3000 rpm before it would move forward. I then took the sport tuner off and put the stock back on. Any ideas on what could be causing this?

Re: 5.7 Hemi transmission??

Get a transmission service, your problem sounds like a common loss of prime issue due to a faulty filter. be it split or allowing drainback.

Not a battery disconnect issue, the cel was probably a loss of prime code. Common failure on the 545RFE trans.

Re: 5.7 Hemi transmission??

So is there any way to fix it or is it just not a big deal?

I would get a trans service done, its pretty hard on the trans to run dry for any amount if time... This mst not be your problem but its a berti good place to start.
