Re: Grand cherokee2015 gear issue

How is your Jeep doing? I'm taking mine in Tuesday for the new TSB flash issued 8-15-15. That will be its second flash since I got the car.

Re: Grand cherokee2015 gear issue

The car is fine but this slight jerking is back after this update so I'll take it Sunday for valve body change...

Re: Grand cherokee2015 gear issue

Little update from ~2 weeks back. Upshifting is working well since the flash and update. The downshifts feel a bit... different? Not harsh/jolting/rough at all. Just feel a bit different than before. Overall, happy that the shifting has smoothed out. Next option was to replace the valve body.

I'm going in for my second flash on Tuesday. And I've also had the valve body replaced after the first flash. I now have an open claim with Chrysler

A new TSB was released 8/15/15. If this doesn't do the trick, I'm getting an attorney.

Latest TSB flash performed yesterday. 1000 miles to know if it worked.

Question for you guys...is this with a 6 cylinder or the 8.
I just picked up a 6, but this thread scares the crap out of me.
I had a 15 cherokee trailhawk that was actually perfect for 8000 miles, then the dealer flashed an update and made the trans unsafe (long story) anyway didnt wanna mess with it as 100s at that forum ended up with no fix, large headaches so I just traded it for the WK2....I had a 12 and figured there should be no bugs left to work out after 4 years

6 cylinder WK2. Sorry.

Hopefully you have a good one. My wife has one too with no complaints, purchased a week apart last April

Re: Grand cherokee2015 gear issue

Is there any jerking or hesitation at all? I'd be surprised if it's running smoothly right after a valve body change. It has to relearn
