Transmission "Clunk"
Its the new kid! . . . again. Hey 3.7L peeps. I gota question for ya. My Jeep is making a pretty loud clunking sound in the transmission area when it shifts into 1st gear and as soon as i hit the gas again. Its still under warranty but they keep tellin me they cant replicate it so they dont even touch it. This only happens after about 40 minutes of driving. Is this normal for a jeep? This is also the reason i dont have pics up of my ride yet. its been in the shop for a while . . .

Or i mean it makes the sound when it slows down and shifts back into 1st gear. Clearing that up.

Hi mate and welcome :)

Is it a SOUND or do you FEEL a clunk?
Do you feel it through the floor or are you hearing it?

You can feel the entire vehicle jerk and hear the clunk. its only wen it shifts in low gears. Like when im stuck in traffic it makes for a very uncomfortable ride.

How many miles she done?
I'm thinking a fluid change and possibly even a reflash of the module might be on the cards.

About 24,500 miles but its been doin this since i got it at about 18k miles. feels much worse now tho.

Ask the dealer to check the rubber bump stop on top of the front diff housing, mine did a similar thing, but at slightly higher mileage. It's a bitch to change, that maybe why they "can't find it".

Re: Transmission "Clunk"
Really. I'll call them up tommorow and let them know. How long does it take to change it? I had a big road trip planned friday . . . lol

Nearly a whole day. They need to drop the subrame and diff out.

It's only a thought buddy, not promising anything! I'm 10,000 miles away! lol

Re: Transmission "Clunk"
Yeah thanks. I know but at this point somethings gota give cuz it gets really annoying and uncomfortable. Plus the manager of the shop already confirmed something was wrong. If they dont try to fix it this time then its time for more drastic measures lol

Re: Transmission "Clunk"
Best of luck my good man! I know how frustrating to deal with some dealers can be.
