Shifted from reverse into drive quickly without pressure on the accelerator. Unfamiliar grinding noise and lurch motion prior to acceleration. First time occurrence.

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?

In Addition to the transmission over-temp warning I have on two occasions had the Jeep crank but run so rough that the whole vehicle shakes, on several other occasions it starts a little rough then just cuts off.

I get going every day going from store to dropping off the the kids at day care the first time I start the car its great the second time not so much it feels like pre ignition but more like post ignition I'm stumped can't tell if it's mass air flow sensor or something other email I hope you can help thank you.

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?

While driving, car will have no acceleration and be stuck at 40 mph randomly. If I pull over, turn car off, wait a few, then it may work. It seems that it wont downshift while this happens. Happens more when travelling up very little inclines. Been is shop many times. Could this be a filter repair?

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.

Is the ac drain line the same as the sun roof drain line? Is it a blue ribbed tube?

Where is the end of the drain line ?

My check engine light came on and I did a engine diagnostic and these three codes pop up..p0133,p0137,and p0430 is this a big problem to fix?

car misfiring ,not running on all cylinders

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.

I have had my jeep for 2 years now I have replaced my front ball joints upper and lower as well as strut on right side I believe but when I drive out to my boyfriends house I still have popping in my front end. I was wondering if it could be my shocks or if it is something else. Its annoying and I just want it to be mechanically sound in the front end and not sound like I am driving a hunk of junk out on those dirt roads.

Maybe hit a pot hole or Two? We are the slow drivers on the road that's for sure.... I spent 14 almost 15 K on my commander. I know when I need to change my brakes ( not currently probably have 80% left brake wise. But the grinding noise that comea from underneath is horrible. Makes me kringe not knowing what it is.... biggest thing that has me stomped is that in reverse there are no symptoms or sound ... help with this mess for me and my family. I will learn what knowledge I can and use it myself.. I can't afford proper help so I'm doing it myself and hope I don't have to drop a tranny in the driveway because we have no garage . Please help
