High RPM's During Normal Shifting when Engine Cold
Usually early in the morning on the first start of the day, or sometimes in the afternoon but usually on colder days, when I pull the jeep off the driveway it waits to shift into 2nd gear after about 3K-4K RPMs and I always prepare for the hard engagement because its spinning way to fast for the next gear. This happens in 1st, 2nd and 3rd. This usually goes away shortly but on my short 5 min. drive to work is killing me.
My foot is also *barely* on the accelerator. In other words, there is nothing I can do to cause it to shift sooner. I've also tried shifting manually but obviously that was to no avail as that's only useful for shifting at higher RPM's anyways.
This is a brand new 2017 cherokee trailhawk, and I have been treating it with kid gloves- especially now- so as to not make anything worse. Anyone know what it could be? Something wrong with the sensor that tells the KL when to shift? I want to avoid the dealership as much as possible and use warrantee only for emergencies.
