My 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4.7 2WD shudders and dies if I put in in reverse and press the gas pedal. The faster I reverse, the more violent the shuddering is (for a couple seconds) then it dies. I can't find any related posts.
Background. Just this week I had an oil/lube/filter change, a front end brake job, and a new battery installed. I did not notice the problem until after these things were done, but I have never throttled my car in reverse either. Just did it to check the brakes in reverse. Any thoughts. PRAYING it's nothing major!
Thanks for you time!
