Re: I Think I Fixed My Rough Shifting 8sp Transmission

What about MPGs. Did you notice an improvement at all?

Re: I Think I Fixed My Rough Shifting 8sp Transmission

My May 2013 build has about 12K miles so I'll wait to 15K to change the air filter, but definitely will give this a shot.

Otherwise, I've had all 3 flashes and initially C was great but then it...

Can you elaborate more on the valve body? Was this due to the harsh shifting in the 8 speed?

Re: FLASH: TRANSMISSION SHIFT ENHANCEMENTS (vehicles with 3.6L engine)

I got my rev C done 1/2 and I think it's starting to crap out and go south like the others did :(

Anyone else?

Re: FLASH: TRANSMISSION SHIFT ENHANCEMENTS (vehicles with 3.6L engine)

No, just one page. It just says tranmission control reprogram module and reprogram drive train control. I still have to call the dealer to confirm what they did.

Re: FLASH: TRANSMISSION SHIFT ENHANCEMENTS (vehicles with 3.6L engine)

I brought mine to the dealer yesterday for the recall, radio, and tranny updates. The service slip or whatever I got when I picked it up said N58 for the recall, RRT 13-071 for the radio, but did...

Re: I Think I Fixed My Rough Shifting 8sp Transmission

I was the same way. I went in last Friday (8/2) for an oil change and the uConnect update (to 13.19 I think). The night before I came across this TSB and brought it to my dealers attention when I...

Re: FLASH: TRANSMISSION SHIFT ENHANCEMENTS (vehicles with 3.6L engine)

I know exactly how you feel. That's why I traded from my 2013 to a 2014. I just couldn't stand the 5 speed and how confused it was and how irregulate the shifting was...not to mention I think I had...

Re: I Think I Fixed My Rough Shifting 8sp Transmission

Re: I Think I Fixed My Rough Shifting 8sp Transmission

I might give this a try. My first and second gears (esp. in ECO) are rough going up and down, more so in stand-still traffic around 5-15 mph stop and go. I only have 700 miles on it so it might still...

What color is your Jeep? From what I'm reading, it looks like the front license plate looks better on black or darker colored vehicles while it doesn't look so good on white and lighter colors.

Re: What are you using as windshield washer fluid?

Re: 8 speed transmission review

Several years sounds a little excessive to me. How many miles were you putting on in 1 year? I just hated my 5 speed in my 2013 and just upgraded to the 8 speed in 2014 and only have 550 on it.
