I have a problem... i knew the title would get ya. When i am going down a hill and i let off the accelerator my rpms will bounce. It will bounce up to about 1500 rpm then go down to about 1000 rpm then it will go back up to 1500 this is going about 50-60 mph if someone could help me out id really appreciate it thanks...


i felt bad for the title so heres some pics of the outlaw offroad zj my personal favorite idk if its on 42's or not lol

Was your battery disconnected recently? Mine does that for about 100 miles after the battery is disconnected. I think its the computer relearning the shift points.

hmm i know that when my TPS went out my rpms had a mind of their own.. are there any other strange things goin on? and since you tricked me into this thread ima comment haha its nice to see that the outlaw isnt a trailer queen and that it actually sees some wheeling.

Those rpm are really low for that speed. Really low. What tires you running?

its not exact rpm but its real close, im still running 235/75/15's im trying to get everything sorted out before i put bigger tires on. i know something is messed up with my driveshaft too because i feel a resistance when it is in and when i slow to a stop a can hear a whining noise.

Coil or TPS. My coil went out and did the exact same thing. Idle surged while moving.
