When I saw an RO print off with this description today, I thought the service writers were just coming up with their own descriptions again, but nope, this is straight from the horse's mouth...

#17249: Service Update - Chuggle Drive Quality - (Jul 17, 2017)

Chevrolet Silverado LD 2017 L83/MYC
GMC Sierra LD 2017 L83/MYC

Condition
Incidental engine combustion events, can occur at certain temperature, loading conditions and throttle positions. When limited or zero torque converter slip is commanded during these events a “chuggle” sensation may occur.

Correction
Reprogram the transmission control module.




Not sure what exactly a "chuggle sensation" is. crackmeup

Just another word for "shudder"

"Shudder" problems occurring at torque converter "lock-up" have been going on for 30+ years.

"Chuggle"! That word was such a joke for us in high school auto shop after seeing it in literature


There's no replacement...'scosity for natural viscosity

The term 'chuggle' is so absurd it reeks of something that emanates from under the closed door of a corporate board meeting in progress.
