*I guess another 2016 can be added. I just joined while researching the "dies in reverse" issue. Bought my wife a '16 sport a week ago from a Nissan dealership and this has happened twice. It has 24,000 miles and the warranty is up the end of April.
I keep finding this issue online with multiple years and multiple causes. Not very reassuring. I have to contact the dealership Monday. I'm just now finding about "jeep cares". I'll have to get with them as well. I'll report back once I know more. Thanks!
So in my situation after 2 weeks the dealer finally was able to duplicate the issue and replaced the camshaft sensors and for the past couple of days my Jeep is running and shifting like a champ! I believe this has resolved my issue. Fingers crossed!
.Update: I received my Jeep back from the transmission shop yesterday. They replace the valve body assembly, selenoid, and pressure plate. This morning I let it idle down to 700-800 RPM put it in reverse and it studdered down to around 400 RPM but did not die.
I haven't owned my Jeep very long and would be curious to know if the cold start stall problem only happens in cold months. Has anyone experienced this issue in temps above 50 degrees?
Well, after the dealership opened a Star case on my Jeep stalling I guess Chrysler decided to tell the mechanic to replace the valve body. So that’s what they did and they are going to let it sit and see if they can get it to stall again on Monday. I’m pretty confident it’s the torque converter seeing how Baylor81 Star case was addressed and his vehicle being fixed after a new torque converter. I have the exact identical problem so I’m wondering why one Star case fix would be different than what they are doing with my Star case?
The TC spins and operates the EXACT SAME way in froward as it does in reverse. There is no change in the way the TC operates other than different pressures at different times to lock/unlock, multiply torque... etc.
If it works fine in forward then it is not the problem. It is a pressure control issue which is in the transmission. The torque converter does not control its own pressure... not directly anyway.
Reverse is a little higher geared than going into first gear so its not the same
