Clunks on first gear

For a little while i've noticed that from a dead stop when I move forward I would feel a series of clunks approx 4 in total. Then I decided to put it into snow settings and it then starts off the second gear.. in this setting I have no clunks at all. I'm planning on bringing it in for them to check it out. I wonder if I was to hard on my jeep with the launch button I've ran the launch button approx 30 times.

Also I'm afraid that they will disregard this who thing since I had a diablo tune for the first 10 000 km on this vehicle. Since I've read somewhere here that the pcm has a history log on it. Right now i'm sitting on 28000 km I hope they will be able to fix it because it doesn't feel right to start off driving with clunks.


Any idea where the problem is ?

Re: Clunks on first gear

You're not alone.
There are a couple of threads here about that same very problem. Seems to be a common problem with the SRT Jeep unfortunately. No fix so far. Some have had transmissions and parts replaced with no luck.
Good luck!

**this is the reason I am holding out on purchasing a 2015 Jeep SRT. I want one bad as nothing else out there really interests me, maybe another Ram 1550 Sport, but I'd rather have the Jeep. I wish they would fix this problem already.

Well that doesn't sound good ! I'm going to read up as much as I can so that the dealership wouldn't waist my Time by swapping a bunch of unnecessary parts etc.
