Check engine light has been on and now is flashing.(looks more like a engine/transmission pic). Car is sputterin on occasion.


When the light is flashing its indicating a problem that can cause more severe problems and should be diagnosed as soon as possible From what youve indicated it may be a misfire code which will cause catalytic converter problems

Just bought a 2006 jeep gand cherokee limited 4.7 liter v8 with 77 miles i t seems to be burning gas very quickly actually to fast what could cause this ?


if you mean bad gas mileage (and only 77 miles on it) the engine isn't broken in yet, its still tight. it will take time to break it in, and you should see your mileage start to improve. check your intake and air cleaner, could be clogged.
