Hi ,
You need to check the transmission oil level as it is probably low and top it up as required there is a specific way of getting an accurate reading so read the manual first or get it checked by a mechanic .

I have an 06 jeep liberty with 110xxx miles. E erything is perfect except when im on the highway and in overdrive the transmission feels like its hiccuping. If I give it a little more gas and it downshifts...


does it feel like the engine is holding back when this "hiccup" occours with this mileage the cat convertor could be getting clogged by carbon deposits so as a first,and cheap , first step i'd put some fuel additive in the tank that is specific for the cat as well as the valves/cylinders etc follow the instructions on the product you choose but you can get good results with these products i use them as part of my vehicle maintenance routine

Very Hard to say where a Clatter is coming from.
Do you have an Automatic or Manual Transmission?
Does it make a noise when you are turning and it stays in 4WD?

While merging onto the highway when my car hit 3 and 4th gear the engine seemed to "stutter/misfire" during harder acceleration. Check engine light also flashed briefly during hard acceleration. Dur


Could be a transmission problem or something as simple as bad spark plugs.
The engine is under the most load when RPM is low and you are trying to accelerate, such as when it upshifts.
You should have the computer checked for trouble codes and hopefully that will point you in the right direction to test.
If the spark plugs have more than 50,000 miles of wear you might start with replacing them.

first, what is the condition and level of the tranny fluid ? compare with new one please. if not the same by far in clour or odor, get the transmission filter and oil changed. while the pan is off, look in it to see if there is metal in it. if so, your torque converter may need to be change. a little greyish residue at the bottom is normal but if the magnet is full and also the, you got a problem. you may need to rebuild it or replace it.
