I have an 06 w/ the 5.7L that I've had since new. It's all all its regular maintenance either at a dealer or at a very trusted shop (I trust my shop way more than any dealer). Last week it went it and got new shocks (billsteins) + struts, a new wheel bearing that was making terrible noise and windshield wipers (second pair in a year, damn AZ heat). A month ago, Mander got a fresh oil change (Mobil 1), a transfer case fluid changed as well as a quick look over the fluid in the transmission (did not change that, it looked good). Basically in the last couple of months he has been well taken care of and brought back to like-new condition. Now today I'm sitting in a drive-through and I hear a weird ticking noise that sounds like the torque converter. When I drop off my Camaro tomorrow at the shop I'm gonna have him check that out too, every once in awhile the Mander goes into gear really hard, but it's not often and usually when it's been sitting for awhile. I was planning on taking the Jeep across the country in a couple weeks but now I'm not too sure.... It's looking like either the Camaro or the Z06 will have to come... Anyone else had these problems at 40k miles? The torque convertor is concerning to me, far more than anything else. If it is bad then Sean at Top Gear Motorsports in Mesa, AZ will get Mander again, and this time to work his transmission magic. Any advice though?
