Shudder At Take Off?
Recently, I've noticed a shudder when I first take off. It's more pronounced when the front wheels are slightly turned.
I had it in for service yesterday for this and they said they checked the drive shaft - nothing. They checked and changed all my differential fluids - nothing. The checked for tranny updates and found one - relearn update.
Drove away....tranny shifting is better but shudder at takeoff is still they same. Called dealer service and it's going back in next week. Taking shop supervisor with me for a test drive.
Makes me NUTS!!!
Also, one other issue. I notice when driving if I let off on the gas and coast and then get back on the throttle, I feel a "clunk" in the drivetrain. For lack of a better description, It's like the tranny hangs up and then catches up with throttle and feels like the clunk is somewhere driveshaft and back. Not sure if I'm explaining this properly.
I'm not hard on my truck and not in the habit of hammering it.
I've only towed my 5er about 20 times and not in the last year. I don't regularly tow heavy.
Truck only has 53,000 kms or 32,000 mi.
Any thoughts? Always appreciated!
