Default 8 speed trans occasional clunk?

I have a 2013 Ram 1500 4x4 3.6l with the 8 speed tranny. On certain occasions I get a harsh trans clunk when going from 1st to second or 2nd to first at certain speeds. It has only happened 2 or 3 times in 2500 miles but I am a little concerned.

I only notice it in stop and go traffic. If I accelerate normally there is never an issue.

Anyone else have this? I read a similar thread with the 2014 Grand Cherokees and may try to reset the trans learning curve by disconnecting the neg battery terminal.


other than this small issue the truck has been flawless

I have the 3.6 and 8 speed as well and have had the same thing a few times, have not had time to talk to a dealer about it.
Hope some one on here knows the answer.

Stupid question, the 3.6l does it come with the 32 gallon gas tank? Just wondering what size gas tank the two 3.6l owners have.

I have 8sp Hemi, and found that when I first drive off for the 1st time after starting, it does not "clunk", but more of a hard (almost head jarring but not harsh) shift from 1st to 2nd. After about a mile or 2 all is good. I think I read that the Tranny does some type of "learn mode" upon 1st few miles after initial start-ups.

I have the Outdoorsman model and it has the 32 gallon, from what I have read the 26 is the standard size.
