Sputtering while Driving at 40mph

I read a few articles that talked about the 2005 V6 GC experiencing some sputtering around 40 mph that deals with the V6 tranny and the torque converter. Anyone have this happen with the 4.7 V8? I don't know if that is just a point that is between gears but when I try just feathering the gas around 40 I seem to get that problem.

It could be the e-13 recall problem. Moisture getting into the trans causing the torque converter to shutter.

I just got a WK, 2005 GC V8 5.7Hemi and it sputters at around 35mph also. I was going to have them check it out but thought I would check here to see if anyone else is having or had the same type issue with this engine. I know there is a tsb for the 3.7 and tranny issue, but not finding much on the 5.7 and this issue. I had thought it may be just between gears but the sputter lasts too long even if I give it more gas to go faster. It finally gets out of it after I reach around 45 but that don't seem right to me. Any suggestions will be great. thanks

It is not common for the 4.7 liter engine to do this at all. What year is your jeep?

I have the 4.7 V8 Engine and it is supposed to be linked up with the new 545RFE tranny. It seems that this only happens when I am simply cruising around 40 mph and if I kept it there it does it pretty much the whole time. It doesn't happen when I am jumping on the gas at all.

Any updates on this?

I have still been unable to have this thing checked by the dealer but wondering if anyone with the new 05 GC has experienced the shuddering around 35 to 40 mph with the 4.7 V8. It doesn't appear to be reported by enough to create a TSB or recall notice. But it is very much a part of my V8 with the 545RFE Tranny. Thanks for any updated info and I plan on having this checked tomorrow.
