Question Asked: Occasional chugging and hesitation
March 10, 2011, 10:50 AM
Sometimes, when sitting at a light or slowing down, my 2007 Jeep Patriot Limited, (not a 4X4), 2.4L engine, will hesitate and "chug" when I accelerate. It has not stalled on me yet, but I have a very uncomfortable feeling, especially in heavy traffic or if driving in a remote area. What could be the causes? Should I ask the dealer to check anything in particular? Don't want a service technicial having a heyday, thinking he can charge me for everything under the sun because I'm a woman and car stupid. Been that route before.
