1. Transmission jumps out of oberdrive

    I have a 2011 Wrangler Unlimited with 276,000 miles that has had all services performed at almost every due point, especially the automatic transmission. At around 45 mph, it jumps out and back into overdrive. A shop recommended rebuilding and that did not cure type problem. Next up was the main computer, again no luck. Has anyone else had this problem I am out over $5000 and still have the issue.

    Transmission jumps out of oberdrive

    What size tires and gearing? All stock?

    Many write of this and rough ride/drivetrain. Check trans fluid. It could be the point the Torque Converter locks. Does it continue at higher rpm or speeds?

    Other is clean the OD button.

    When they did the "Rebuild"...Did they install a new Torque converter?

    i read that was common on the tj transmission after mine started upshifting and downshifting when it got to od. i had to buy some additive for the fluid and it stopped it. transmission shifts perfectly now

    i realize yours is not a tj, just commenting though so you could maybe try that additive. its called something like lube guard shudder fix
