2010 journey r/t shudder while turning

Recommended Posts

Got a question. I have a 2010 journey r/t that when you turn an give it throttle it starts to shudder like when you have a locker in the rear end. But if you roll around corners it is fine. So my question is dose the viscous coupler on the rear end need power to engage or power to disengage. Thanks Mike

Could also be rough shifting.  You can get a reprogram.  Might work.  Might not.

 

You need to get a transmission/powertrain mechanic to check it out, preferably at a Dodge/Chrysler dealership.

 

Not a cheap fix.

 

Good luck.

 

PLEASE let us know how you get along guys!

Shortly after I posted this it quit. But at the same time this was happening I had to replace the pinion seal which put quite a bit of oil in the viscus coupler. Cleaned it up put it back together with new oil in the differential and a few days later the shudder quit. Now a few days ago it started shuddering again. So to answer the question no I have not found out what the problem is. Both me and the wife just try not to pin it around the corners now.

Thanks for replying.

Got my car back from repair today. Happy it's fixed, sad about the cost. In my case, it was the Rear Differential Viscous Coupler. Had it replaced and now my car drives as new.

That is what I am assuming is the problem with ours also. Especially after all the oil I found in there doing the pinion seal.
