so the car feels like it is dragging and I followed the instrcutions to take it out of 4wd low. When I did that it displayed service 4wd

at low speed when first start and drive , grinding noise left front wheel, vehicle seems as
if not in gear.

I left kholes today when I got in my commander I turned the key and it acted like it was trying to start, but shook made some grinding and pop sound.then would die.... Well i have to try to start it 5 to 7 times before it actually will start...... Also after it happen the first time when it took five times to start it started overheating on my way home. Can anyone give me any help I literally just bought this car today and paid all cash out of money my dad left after he passed recently...

My key got stuck and I turned it over pretty hard to switch it over on and it broke. Shouldn't the key be included in replacement?

Only dtc 2100 low bat voltage--battery was run down Starts. Have been having overheating issues. replaced water & thermostat. fan runs

It was running when parked went to move started no power then it died mow it wont start and says that code but it jyst keeps turning over but doesnt start??

After engine warms up. 5.7 engine

Also the same Mechanic told me I needed a rear end.

the mechanic said I needed an oil change. Ieft the truck there with him. Only for him to call me back to say my transmission is bad.

Only Happens/Hear it When I Step Hard On Gas Pedal From Standing Still , Take Off in 1st. Gear

i park next to another jeep it will disable there jeep to unlock or lock. i pull away they are able to unlock and lock there jeep

My car randomly tells me the transmission is over temp. Then it shifts to the point of neutral and the fan goes on. It is a loud whirring sound. Typically it occurs while driving slowly with frequent stops (I live in the city).
I have taken it to the shop before, and for some reason it won't say that it is overheating anymore - and of course they can't get the code. But this is incredibly inconvenient. I have put way too much money in this jeep as it is. Any advise? The transmission cooler lines had just been replaced. I am hoping it may just be a sensor problem. Is that common?

One day started missing really bad and check engine light came on and I check the codes and it said multiple cylinders misfired so I changed all spark plugs and ignition coils. I started it up and I still runs the same with alot of misfiring and turns off by itself.

I've been told my 2006 Jeep Commander has 2 catalytic converters. One is bad. How do we tell which one is bad?

How can I get an inspection sticker when the engine light goes on indicating transmission problem, When I drive 50 plus miles, the transmission will not go into 2,3 gear. Why does that happen. If I let the engine cool, reset indicator light, keeping the speed to 50 and acceleration at or below 2 RPM thru the gears, I can go for miles with no problems (no engine light too). PROBLEM: I am trying to get an inspection sticker and the transmission issue is causing a fail. My mechanic resets the engine light/system and added to drive many miles, keeping engine light off (following the protocol above) and having all sensors pass will enable the vehicle the inspection sticker. How many miles are needed to get the 02 Sensor along with the Evap system sensor to pass. He says it is hit or miss as to how many miles it will take. I am trying to avoid transmission work to pass inspection. Any thoughts? Thank you.
