Sounds like a missfire. You will need to see a mechanic so he can check the missfire counter and see if this is the case!

This light is indicating a fault in the automatic gear box, it can be excessive slippage (you may feel nothing unusual) or other problems. you must have it scanned by a dealer or ****** repair shop to find out what is causing the light to come on.

The car hesitates at initial acceleration. The RPM's jump to 3 then to 2 then to 1 before it stablizes at 40 MPH and seems fine. It feels like a jerky acceleration and is not smooth like I think it...


If it only happens in one particular speed/RPM then I would be looking into TPS throttle position sensor. Please check and spray carb cleaner on the MAF mass air flow sensor only.

Power (acceleration) loss at mid-high RPM only


Loss of acceleration, the backpressure noise and such are kinda tell tale signs of that converter having problems, feel the exhaust out of the tailpipe it will be warm normally have someone step on the gas and if its super hot it'd be a step in the right direction.

07 pacifica 3.8 eng. with 4 speed At low rpm's 1200 to 2000 it shudders and has a jerky feeling. It runs great at 70 mph at 2200 rpm and has good floor board acceleration . 4 dealers fail to acknowledge...


Well there is a rev limiter built into the pcm on your car. It is much lower rpm's in park and neutral. When u hit the rev limit of a particular gear selection, the pcm starts cutting out the injectors(fuel). This is normal. As far as the jerky feeling, the only thing I know of is a service bulletin that may apply to your car. It involves a revised torque converter for the transmission. It would only apply if your feeling this at speeds of approx 35 mph or higher when the torque converter lockup engages after a shift. Ask your dealer about a possible tsb for this if you think this may sound like your problem or search for tsb's(technical service bulletin's) yourself on the internet.
