Engine died while going 40mph

So while driving during rush hour my engine just died and I came to a halt in the middle of the road and narrowly escaped being rear-ended. I had to put the truck into park and restart it. The jeep...

Keep us updated on what they tell you. I no longer have any dialogue with them.

Re: Vibration on acceleration

Mine does it occasionally. To me it feels like I'm running over rumble strips.

Re: V8 tranny slip / engine vibration

Mine feels like I'm running over rumble strips sometimes when it's not shuddering and vibrating.

Re: Creaking Sound When Going Over Bumps

I had a bad front strut too. It kept working itself loose so dealer finally replaced it after bringing it in the third time. Now I'm having the same issue in my rear suspension.

Re: Rear end or rear suspension clunk/creak

I've noticed this on mine as well but I've been more concerned with my drivetrain shudder to mention it Chrylser. I did have front end components replaced because they wouldn't stay tight. Maybe...

Re: Transmission Shudder

It does it at low speed as well. Feels like a galloping horse at times and vibrates rapidly from a stop through first and second and at high speeds 70+ so it's not the MDS.

Re: Transmission Shudder

Not once did they mention the word "misfire". At first it was a software issue, then a faulty component then the MDS.
All of my repair orders acknowledge a shudder etc... And the repair attempts...

Re: Transmission Shudder

I'm thinking class action law suit would get things moving for us? The publicity would not be very good for Chyrsler.

Re: 2012 Overland shudder/vibration at cruising speeds and lurch on start.
