    the car runs fine,i dont mean that i put the pedal to the floor when i start off,it happens when im doing about 30mph and i get to a hill and put the accelerator down the auto box drops a gear and the engine cuts off,but when i pull over and turn the ignition off and then back on the yellow light goes out and the engine starts up as normal,it sometimes does it on a flat road aswell if you put the pedal down and the box drops a gear or two.

    yes the fuel filter has been changed but but it still cuts out,i will buy a repair manual and check all the sensors.

    thanks for your help.

    Remind me never to buy a used vehicle from you!!!!!
    Like the doctor in the joke says: If it hurts, then don't do that!
    Could just be that your vehicle is telling you the same thing!
    These are NOT race cars or performance oriented engine systems.
    On NORMAL starts, how does it run?

Ok... using a digital ohmeter (if you don't have a scan tool) check the throttle position sensor, mass air flow sensor and the manifold pressure sensor (MAP). Instructions for testing are too long for me to write them out, but can be found in any decent repair manual. As a last resort, you can swap parts from another known good vehicle (maybe from a friend) this won't damage anything unless you break something during r&r. I'm leaning towards the tps, but on this electronic junk, everything feeds off of everything else and it's easy to get fooled... could even be the crank sensor. Sorry to be so vauge but without being there and driving/testing myself I can't honestly be positive enough for a definite answer. (you did change the fuel filter, right?)

What would cause my 2010 jeep grand cherokee laredo 4x4 to loose power and then kick back in? Also EAS/BAS light came on and then went off after I cut the engine and started it again.

I've come across a couple with poor battery connections do the same thing...
The EAS/BAS light will turn on and store a pending code when the system detects low battery voltage.

My grang cherokee2002 us spec, while driving trnz changes fine but when cick down or full excelrate and RPM reaches 4.5 or 5 engine is loosing power and getting noisy and RPM not going more, while gear on...

You are hitting the rev limiter top range, which cuts off your ignition.

I have a 2001 Grand Cherokee and the problem drives me crazy, but it is the way the car is designed- as soon as you hit the rev limit, it shuts down ignition and your jeep will "buck" - a real pain when you are trying to accelerate into traffic!

You have the 4.0L straight six engine, yes?

If so, please take my advice and learn to live with the minor annoyance of the rev limiter- that engine is IMHO the best Chrysler ever made (nearly "bulletproof"!) and it was so reliable you cannot even get it in a jeep now! For decades, that engine was used in welders, tractors, generators...and yes, jeeps... and it is a favorite among mechanics for its durability!
