This vehicle will have no doubt covered a lot of miles and the auto transmissions on them are not, in any event, particularly durable (just complex and expensive). Some are inadequately serviced and, in these cases, the life is even shorter.

The problem you are experiencing is an indication that the transmission is dying and in due course you can anticipate total failure. As it is, it is not really drivable.
The only fix is to replace the transmission with a rebuilt one which will be very expensive. Some auto transmissions in this model have also had serious computer control problems but in your case, from what you have said, I believe it is wear and tear of the transmission components.

Unfortunately, if you own one of these cars with significant miles on it, you can expect to have significant and expensive mechanical issues to rectify to keep the car running and roadworthy.

2006 KJ Cherokee 2.8lt turbo diesel manual. When I accelerate engine surges then flat spot then surges again as it accelerates there is also a lot of black smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe


There is a waste gate on a turbo and that gate dumps the excess pressure in the manifold. There is a sensor that determines when the gate opens and closes. You need to run a diagnostic scan and see what the waste gate and sensors are doing.

Hi, my car starts vibrating at 2800 RPM and vibrations dissapears at 3000 RPM.


does it have the same acceleration at that speed, if it does not accelerate so well it is called a flat spot and will almost certainly need a good mechanic to sort it out
If acceleration remains as good in this range as through the rest of the rev ange add detail and please resubmit

Vw beetle 2000 model flat spot when accelerating


Do you have a check engine light on? If not try this. Buy a can of Mass Airflow sensor (MAF) cleaner (about $6) from the auto parts store and clean the MAF inside, it is located in the air intake hose to the engine. It would also be a good idea to have the fuel pressure checked and to have a scan test done on the electronic engine control computer. Also replace the engine air filter.

My car hesitates everytime i step on the gas pedal right after i change gear why?


If your car has a carburetter, the problem you describe would be caused by a faulty accelerator pump. There is a special pump built into the carb that sprays a spurt of fuel into the carb throat to prevent that flat spot when you accelerate quickly of change gears etc.
