tranny problem?
 
okay so i just got my jeep not even 3 weeks ago and as i was backing out of my driveway an hour ago i went to tap the gas and it felt like the tranny locked up and bam the car comes to a hault ... the bam was so loud my sister ran outside and thought i smashed someone... i put her in park and turned it off and got out to check and make sure my tranny wasnt on the ground got back in started her up and put it in reverse and she worked like a charm ... i called the dealer and its still under warentee so its going down tomorrow but can anyone chime in on what could possibly be wrong ?

i heard of the 06s having a tranny recall where the tranny wont enguage into gear in the cold but when i called the dealer before this problem they told me there was no recall ?

I am not too sure what locked up trans. means. However, in response to your question, there is a technical service bulletin that was issued from Chrysler about delayed trans. engagement. There was a new thread earlier today asking about it as well as a few others on the site related to the delayed engagement issue. http://jeepgarage.org/showthread.php?t=29528 If you want to give us more information we may be able to better help guide you in the right direction about what you experienced with your transmission.

Depends a lot on the tranny. What engine do you have? That thread is in reference to the 5-45 RFE found behind the 4.7/5.7.

by locked up you mean you had it in drive and you couldn't move the vehicle? This tranny is a Mercedes Transmission and sometimes makes a loud thunk if you shift gears without being completely stopped and also will do it sometimes if you make it do a hard up-shift (flooring it and then lifting quick for example)

i had it in reverse and it was rolling backwards but as i went to gas it up a little bit pulling out of my driveway it completly froze it stopped on a dime and it felt like all the gears in the tranny came to a complete stop i could feel the tranny moving

That does not sound good, hope the dealer takes care of you on this one.
