Stalling problem

Hi all!

I'm fellow Jeep owner from Finland and Jeeps are quite rare here so your help and knowledge is more than welcome! My car is diesel (2.8 CRD) with 545RFE transmission.

Problem is related to temperature. When the car is cold and you stop with transmission in drive, car stalls. Here is video of the problem:

Also when the car is parked for a long time (more than few hours), sometimes the car won't move when releasing brake. You need to give some throttle to make the car move.

I've checked the transmission oil, it is clean and there is enough fluid. Oil was changed about 30 000 miles ago. All recalls are done including torque converter(12 000 miles ago).

I'm taking the car to a Jeep repair shop next week, but I'm afraid they have hard time finding the problem...

Did they replace the torque converter? Just from what you mention, it makes me question if it wasn't changed.

Sounds exactly like what happened to me when I had a torque converter clutch solenoid go out on a Pontiac Grand Am. Wouldn't unlock when I stopped. I just unplugged the solenoid. Never got it fixed as it was a project to get to. Unplugging was not good for the tranny but it didn't stall when stopping anymore.

It definitely feels like clutch locking. Thanks!
