I returned everything back to stock and I'm still experiencing the same check engine light. I will be calling jeep again on Monday.
Also if anybody else has had similar problems and were able to get it resolved please PM me your star number as well. All help is very appreciated.

I am fighting the dealer with the same issue, can somebody provide me their Star number so I can prove that others are having the same issue? I'm on the third check engine light.

|lando76||Thats what I felt was wrong with mine the whole time. Torque converter either slips or locks and unlocks during constant acceleration. I almost believe it could be fixed by programming. Im not throwing any engine lights or error codes since the dealer looked at it so ill just drive the hell out of it.|

|srtjstjian||Has anyone else noticed this?|

Update from my side:
Valve body did nothing. Dealer test drove another 2012 and said it does the same. So they said it was normal. I opened case with Chrysler to move things along.
Dropped off over a week ago, called today and said it was ready. Completely pulled tranny apart and replaced all seals, etc and checked all tolerances and tech said tranny looked new inside. Went for a drive with service manager and exact same as it was. Argued its normal, etc.
Now, I'm not talking a slight shudder/hesitation, mine is very noticeable and getting worse (especially when it's hot out). So we drove the 2012 they compared mine to and it felt perfect except for maybe a tiny blip in 2nd similar to my issue. Test drove a 2014 new and again no issue. All with service manager and tech. They agreed to take it back for the 3rd time, torque converter is being replaced now.
Guess what, if this doesn't fix it this time it's getting bought back as a lemon and I'll just buy a new one. I recommended a TC the first time and they said they are bullet proof. Hoping this fixes it as I have a lot of money into jeep and some of it would have to stay if it goes back.

|lando76||Thanks, I will mention that to them.|

Lando... I would have them flush the trans fluid. Many reported a shudder from the trans and the problem was ATF contamination - water.

|lando76||Just curious, month old thread but did the valve body help? I am having the exact same issue and started another thread not knowing about this one. I do not have a check engine light nor at the moment do I have any error codes ( dealer might have cleared them last week ).|

Dealer is replacing valve body on the tranny. Pick her up tomorrow to see if she's all fixed up.
|10-16-2013 06:53 PM|
Well, dealer finally acknowledge issue on a test drive today. Going back tomorrow for a ride with tech who will work issue.
I don't care if they need to replace tranny, torque converter, whatever. I just know it is not normal and hopefully they don't argue repair which will likely be a full tranny replacement.

|Unlimited13||I have been working with torque converters for about a decade now with many OEMs. This sounds like typical shudder. Many people describe it as driving over a rumble strip. The best way to get it to light up is to find a light upward grade and move forward at a light and steady acceleration. If this works find a smooth road with similar grade near the dealer and get it to light up and then take the tech out with you. Once you get it to light up with the tech in the car they should be able to force the TC clutch not to lock. If the problem goes away. It is most likely your TC clutch. With that being said TC shudder at low milage (under 5000mi) is not huge deal and should go away without damaging anything as the clutch breaks in. Personally if it happened to me I may not take it in to see if automatically goes away on its own just because I fear other things getting messed up when someone messes with my jeep. Now if the ATF drained while I was driving I would demand a whole transmission.|

|Spyder1049||I have 4.10s and have the problem|
|08-01-2013 09:31 PM|
|itssbs||I have 3.73 gears in my 13 JKR, I wonder if the people having this trouble also have 4.10's. Just curious....|
|07-31-2013 04:01 PM|
|Jstraw||Mine seems to cycle the torque converter, especially when I'm in manual... It goes back and forth when I'm cruising in second and holding RPM... Is this what your talking about?|

|BacaraJKU||Hey, can you provide STAR case #. Dealership said they will look into case to see if it will help with my case.|

Wow, I am glad I found this thread. I have the same issue and its very annoying. Got the "can not duplicate" the first time. When i picked it up I took tech for a ride, said it was fine and apparently normal. BS, I have owned several auto trannys and have never had this. I called dealer yesterday and my service manager said to stop by again and shop Forman will go out with me.
I'm pushing to get new tranny since lift and everything else is sitting in garage ready to go on, don't want something to happen and they deny due to lift.
As others asked, can you post Chrysler case # so others can reference.
|07-31-2013 12:51 AM|
|itssbs||2013 JKR same weird 2nd gear shift. dealer said there is a software update but they didn't fix it. Need to take it back again to have my tail gate stop replaced and should get the update.|
|07-30-2013 07:31 PM|
|Spyder1049||ughhhhh.... I have this problem too , question did you have bigger tires or a lift or any modifications , i ask because i do and would like to know if they are going to bust my balls , i had the problem from the beginning|

|WonderJeep||Curious how it has been after a month? Did your mileage improve with new trans? All good now?|
|06-27-2013 12:58 PM|
New transmission went in yesterday. picked her back up this morning and so far so good. The stutter is gone. smooth sailing all the way to work. 25 miles + freeway.
I'm not sure about the case number. Is that on the dealer paperwork? I only called Chrysler once, that was when the cooler line popped off the day after i got the jeep. I think that would be a different case.

|legitposter||Thanks for the info, keep us updated.|
|06-19-2013 01:25 AM|
Can you post your Case # with Chrysler so that others can use as a reference if Chrysler dishonors other claims?
Im thinking about having my dealer look at my transmission now and Im sure having your case # will make things a lot easier if I decide to pursue a new transmission...
|06-18-2013 11:23 AM|
The engineers at Chrysler have approved a new transmission. In addition, they are shipping mine back to be evaluated. I guess it's nice to know that they want to figure out the problem. Doubt I'll ever know myself though.

|Kiddmen57||Currently my jeep is sitting at the dealership awaiting word from Chryslers STAR engineer team. My dealer has submitted the paperwork for a NEW tranny under warranty. I should know what the final word is early next week. It really sucks being without my jeep. My local club is even having a fathers day run tomorrow|
