Welcome to the forum.Sound to me like your CPU is getting know you. I'd suggest spending two or three days letting your onboard computer get to know your driving style and adjusting to you. A couple of your concerns I experienced on my previously used vehicle and they went away. What is CPO?
No, on decel, it would be unlocking, which could feel like an engine brake.Thanks dhh3.
So you are saying the early lock up on decel was to increase mpg? I would think that would be backwards. To me, unlocking the TC on decel would allow it to "coast" so to speak and help mpg.
I will do some further research on resetting the adaptives. On my 06 Chrysler, I can simply pull fuse # 11 in the PDC to reset the adaptives. Then I don't have to reset the clock and all that other stuff that comes with a battery disconnect. Hoping the Nitro has something similar.
