When did you last change the timing belt? If the belt slipped a tooth it could cause your issue. I would do a compression test of all cylinders to see if they are good. Any major variation would indicate a possible timing belt slip. Be advised that this is an interference engine and if the belts breaks or slips too far, valve or piston damage can occur.

May be your transmission slipping gears. Have someone look at it. Mine did the same thing at 99,700 miles. Good luck.

Rear end slipping?


Differentials are direct-drive devices -- they cannot slip.

This really sounds like erratic shifting taking place right at the shift point. Gentle acceleration is the trickiest shift for an automatic. When accelerating harder, the transmission shifts more abruptly, which is a much easier shift to complete.

1999 jeep grand cherokee transmission


This is called limp mode chrysler did this to protect the transmission without leaving the owner stranded by the road,a few things will cause this mainly putting the wrong fluid in the transmission,they use only atf+4,or the govenor pressure sensor is acting up which should cause a check engine light to come on,or the transmission just needs a fluid and filter change,should be done every 2yrs or 36k miles,due the fluid and filter change about 40.00 but if you have the wrong fluid then the whole system needs to be flushed and refilled-transmission-torque convertor,radiator and cooler if equipped and all lines.

Car cuts off every 4 to 5 days


Pull off your IAC motor (Idle Air Control) and give it & the port that it comes out of a good cleaning with throttle body cleaner, make sure connections are clean, and re-install & try it. It will be located on the front part of the throttle body, on the side. If that cures it, and it re-occurs in time, replace it.
