2016 Jeep compass latitude Engine surge when accelerating
When we accelerate (getting on the freeway) or
even taking off fast the engine kinda surges or
shifts weirdly, idles fine and drives fine when
driving steadily but seems to be slipping or
something at take off or when accelerating also
takes forever to get up to a faster speed. Any
ideas? Took to the shop & what they said it was &
replaced is dumb but also didn't fix a thing & the
guy said it was.normal with cvt tranny and when he
drove it he didn't notice it but when we drove it
home it still did it! Any help would be awesome!!!
As it is a Jeep and you suspect a transmission problem I would head to a tranny shop and have it checked as transmissions are a weak spot on Jeeps. Other problems could be fuel flow or pressure restrictions, cam sensor, crank sensor.
