2005 Jeep Rubicon w/ Benz NSG-370-6 speed manual tranny problems

Hello,

I have a 2005 Jeep Rubicon with a Benz NSG-370 6 speed manual transmission.


In about 2007, she began to jump/bump/or pop violently out of first geat from a standing stop. I have tried everything in the tranny: switching to Penzoil Synchromesh & Royal Purple's Synchromax. Right now I am using Royal Purple & it is has given me the best results so far. As a rule, I change my tranny oil once a year.

Both have worked better than the standard NV3550 Mopar Manual Transmission Fluid. I don't know why this fluid was recommended for a completely different transmission & particuarly a Benz transmission. But I am not an auto expert.

I also find that if I go into Neutral after a stop & then shift into 1st before accelerating & hold to the stick, it is less likely to happen. Also, a higher rev prior to acelleration from a standing stop seems to help. It could (?) be that I am not paying attention & don't do the things I mentioned or I am not shifting all the way into 1st gear.

I have also been told I could have a bad synchronizer for 1st gear & that there is a Chrysler TSB on this problem, but Chrysler is not likely to tell you about it.

Has anyone else out there had this problem? When it occurs, is sounds & feels like someone has hit you in the rear end & the transmission has jumped back into Neutral. It is that violent as its worst.

Any thoughts or suggestions for me & how much it would cost to have this problem corrected?

Again many thanks in advance for your help,

I have had this also happen quite a few times. It's been months since the last one though.
