Try to understand if the problem comes from engine or transmission.
If the problem happens only at that speed, then usually it is the transmission
Among other faults that can cause the car engine jerking only at a determined speed there are Throttle position sensor, tranny kickdown solenoid, speed sensor, car ECM (control computer module), etc

Since this kind of fault is difficult to find, a good idea could be connecting the car computer to an OBDII code reader and getting fault codes that can indicate the nature of the problem.

Regards.

    If you get no code have the transmission and all sensors that can possibly affect the transmission checked (tps speed sensor etc) check also the throttle cable.
    If you leave throttle and problem continues while it disappear when you push, then it can be kickback solenoid in transmission not working.

    Since you refused I won't be able to follow up.

Good morning,
Actually this is some what of a common problem not only for your Jaguar but for most vehicles.
The "chugging" you are feeling at that speed, whether the vehicle has a manual or automatic transmission, is the TCC ( transmission converter clutch) if automatic transmission equipped.
The "chugging" is caused by the EGR ( exhaust gas recirculation ) valve function.
As the vehicle accumulates miles or "wears in" , fuel varnish builds up inside the fuel injectors, carbon begins to accumulate on the intake valves and combustion chamber, absorbing the atomized fuel, and creates an uneven burn pattern on the combustion stroke. When the EGR is activated by the engine controller along with the TCC, the uneven combustion is felt inside the vehicle as a "chugging or minor missfire" condition.
I would suggest at 78k you have an ignition system and fuel system tune-up. The spark plugs should be replaced, the EGR valve cleaned and the fuel injectors cleaned with a fuel filter replacement. Your dealer should have the equipment to perform the injection system cleaning which is done with a cleaner and high pressure system, if not try using a high quality fuel system cleaner that cleans the injectors and the combustion chamber of any varnishes and carbon.
The "chugging" your feeling won't damage any components but is more of an annoyance.
If you have the service performed as I described, the condition will be greatly reduced or non-existent.
Hope this helps.
Best regards,

2001 jeep Cherokee sport out of no where started sputtering and chugging, running rough and 10 mph was top speed go about 20 ft then die. Start up and same thing. Went about 1-2 miles like this.


to me, it sounds like fuel related problem.
Clogged fuel filter, bad (aged) fuel pump, or water in tank.

one thing I doubt is "Sputtering".
low fuel pressure don't do "Sputtering".

Hi, what do you mean by chugs at 48 mph ? Doesn't it go any faster then 48 mph, does it lose power, bog down when you press the gas pedal to the floor. Does it have a misfire , that makes the vehicle buck and jerk ! Is the check engine light on or any other lights for that matter ? How many miles are on this trailblazer ?

Diagnosis needed for car repair


You problem seems to be an output speed sensor or some other type of sensor. As for the timing belt I would recomend replacing it before it does go bad.
