SOURCE: Car stutters at startup

My car did the same thing and I went and had it checked out. They had to replace my mass air flow censor. Cost me a little over $200. The only thing is after I had it fixed, my check engine light kept coming on. They said that my fuel line was running rich because I had ran my car so long with that problem. May want to get that checked out!

Check under drivers door sill step. There is a spice I believe the wires are red or pink in color. The splice will be wrapped in black hockey tape looking stuff. Peel the the hockey tape stuff off and you will find that this splice is corroded and not making contact anymore. You can repair this splice and your problems will be fixed. Be sure to use some good heat shrink on your repair to prevent from happening again.

SOURCE: 95 jeep wrangler splutters, jerks, backfires during acceleration

The ECU controls all of that. When they start to go bad they do very strange things that are hard to diagnose. They run about $300 bucks of you do it yourself. They are simple to do. Shop around because it is an electrical component and many places wont warranty them but some places do if your lucky you can find one. I also would not rule out your timing or distributor. I dont know you or what you have checked but could be the rotor or could be carbon tracking inside the distributor. Even the slightest crack in the cap can mess everthing up.

Jerking accelerating


similar problems: After 20min cool down jeep was bucking/lurching that I traced to bad o2 sensor in exhaust manifold (which you've replaced is seems). The second problem of bucking/lurching, backfiring under certain driving conditions I traced to the battery sliding into the computer wiring harness, disrupting sensor input / output signals. I cured this problem by placing a 1" spacer on rear battery clamp, pushing the battery forward. Been years and no return of problem.

My 2011 jeep patriot steering pulls hard right when accelerating. If steering is corrected to compensate and I ease up on gas, it will then over correct to the left. Dealer service says that's normal. My...


I'm not sure what the problem is, but I DO know that dealer service is 100% INCORRECT when saying this is normal. A vehicle, especially a brand new model like you've aquired, should drive straight as an arrow, accelerating or not. Dealer just doesn't want to fix it. Take it back to dealer, as you should not do any work to it yourself, (voiding the warranty), and demand them to fix the problem. This is not normal. Just be demanding, and say this IS a problem, you know it's a problem, and you won't quit until the problem is fixed. All dealers are the same. If they don't HAVE to do the work, they won't. It needs to get done.

I hope this helps!

I changed the oil and need to reset the change oil light?


1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position. Do not

start the engine.

2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal, slowly, three times

within 10 seconds.

3. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF/LOCK position.

NOTE: If the indicator message illuminates when you

start the vehicle, the oil change indicator system did not
reset. If necessary repeat this procedure.

Good luck on resetting the change oil light.

That was a new one for me and found the solution in the .pdf file
located on the owners section of the jeep.com website for the 2009 Jeep Patriot.

Single knock sound from dead stop or when slowing down


I had the same problem on a brand new 2008 JEEP Patriot. The solution after 2 trips to the dealer was to tighten all the suspension bolts in the front. Note wether your problem is in the front or rear and go to the dealer.
