My jku will melt my 285's in reverse. No power loss at all. When your tranny is shifted the computer adjusts the idle so slightly almost not noticable while shifting from forward to reverse ir vice versa. Sounds like an electrical issue. Sensor maybe or who knows, not normal though. How many miles on said jeep?

Where would I go to find out if I need a reflash?

Is there a way to fix this weak torque converter?
