I stall when I am braking to a stop. Happens right as I am coming to a complete stop. Sometimes I go days, even weeks with no problem, then out of the blue, it just stalls at a stop. It starts right back up with no problem. Sometimes when I am stopping it doesn't stall completely, but revs, then chugs to a stop, feeling rough.

I have had it to the dealer 5 times now. At first they couldn't replicate it, so didn't do anything. Then it almost stalled for them, they thought it was the throttle body, so they replaced that. That didn't work, it was still stalling at a stop. Last time I had it in they had the diagnostic tool in it and said that it was the oversize tires (only 1" over stock) that was causing the stall. They said with the 2012 technology the air intake is adjusted by the speed you are going, and when it senses you are going a certain speed, the air intake is adjusted. They said since the tires were bigger, it was sensing the speed wrong, causing the air to choke out. They suggested an AEV Procal to set the Jeep computer to the proper tire size so that wouldn't happen. I had actually already bought one at the suggestion of the parts tech at the dealer. It has been set properly by the dealer and still stalled since then. Now they are suggesting just running stock wheels and tires. This makes no sense, since most Jeep owners run bigger wheels/tires. They even sell 2012 JKU's on the lot with larger tires.

I am about to pursue the lemon law, but hoping to hear from other jeep owners with bigger tires that this hasn't happened to you. Or if it has, how did you resolve it?

Thanks again!
I read this earlier today and when I went to my dealer I asked him about this, I printed it out so I won't say it wrong. They laugh at what your dealer had to say. They had one a few months ago do the same thing and said it's an electrical connection that is not plugged in all the way or has got some water in it. No way it's your tires, They have new jeeps sitting on there lots with 4-5 inch lifts and 40 inch tires. They told me to tell you to find another dealer to have your warranty work done. I won't tell you what they called them something like Idiots.

First was "an MV Agusta thing", second was a "a Ducati thing". Both are gone (Brutale 910R and Ducati 1098R). Currently running a Streetfighter S that is the stuff!

So far my only problem has been with the 730N...damn, my lights are flickering here in NJ. Guess the power will go soon. Sandy is gettin' busy around here right now. Gotta go.

Absolutely love Augustas and Ducatis!

We lost our electricity for about 20 seconds. Best of luck.

I just had my check engine light come on last week on my 2012 JKU. Put code reader on it and came back P0306, which was misfire in cylinder 6. Took it to the dealer and they said it had a dead cylinder. So they had to pull the motor. Changed out a cylinder head and a bunch of gaskets. We picked it up Saturday morning and the wife took it work on Sunday with no problems. Monday night on her way home it started chugging and the check engine light started flashing. We hadn't even put 200 miles since getting it back.

My 2006 liberty diesel does this on occasion, thus far only at very low RPM's and generally when turning (often in the parkade at work). I have a suspicion it's because the engine hasn't been running long enough to "pressure up" the auto transmission and it feels like a clutch grabs and drags the engine down to a dead stop.

I'm sure he's calmed down considering it's been over a year since the last post.
