Default Reverse cut off?

I have a 2012 Jeep Sahara auto 3.6...
sometimes when I put it in reverse it cuts off. So I have to put it back in park to start. Then to reverse and itll act like it's in park still than I have to put it back in park than reverse and it'll work. But some days it doesn't even give me any trouble. And when I'm driving it, it has a miss to it sometimes as well. Not a bad one... like it got some bad gass or something. No check engine light is on and the scanners won't pick anything up. Any ideas? Thanks!

I have a 13 with 80k and had similar symptoms. Ended up being a bad crankshaft position sensor. Had the similar hesitation and skipped fires though was inconsistent enough that I thought I was just being jeep paranoid. Started to happen more frequently over time to where I knew it was an issue. Eventually threw P0339 code. Plus a misfire code (P0300) and a torque sensor code (P2638). Did a little bit of research on here and was fairly confident it was the sensor had a bad connection and was cascading other codes. Had a shop replace the CSP sensor because it didn't have time and it is in a shitty location to get to on the passenger side above the cat. I trust my shop and i wanted them to run a full scan on it as well. Was a cheap fix. Not sure if this what is going on with your but might it might be.
