car stuttering on highway check engine light

Asked by Aug 26, 2016 at 11:40 AM about the 2012 Jeep Liberty Sport 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

today I was driving down the highway going about 65-70 mph, all of a sudden
the car began to shake and stutter. I looked down and the check engine light
came on but disappeared after about 3 miles. Any ideas on what this could
be?

scan for the codes, we'd be guessing until you do. Some codes are stored in memory, like does not need to be on. Scan with car off and on.

check the computer and no codes popped up. Is it possible it could have been a clogged filter or is that not serious enough to cause this?
