I have a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. When the accelerator is depressed hard (passing or going uphill) the vehicle downshifts into too low of a gear. The nose will dip down and it will rev high.

this is normal for the trans to downshift as the engine and trans are working together to handle the acceleration of your car and as your car's speed increases the trans will adjust again (EG: shift gears) this is more of a weight to acceleration sort of thing or rather weight to power sort of thing

1999 dodge caravan runs okay until you try to quickly accellerate or when attempting to go up a steeper grade. At these times it pops back through the intake and you lose power The power loss is worse...

have a fuel pressure check ran on the vehicle to make sure it is mantaining the proper fuel pressure at all may be holding enough to keep it running at low acceleration.i hope this helps

My bighorn lotus 1994 3.2 petrol revs really high before it accelerates. also when i go uphill and put my foot flat the cat almost cuts out

the high revs on pulling away is a front clutch going on the gearbox which i assume is a automatic ,as for the lack of power going uphill could be anything from a dirty pick up gauze filter in the fuel tank which is collecting rust and muck when the tank tilts ,or even a plastic bag ,to a mass air flow sensor ,you will need to ask a local mechanic on this one ,but the gearbox overhaul?' might be cheaper to trade it in

2003 isuzu rodeo. idles smooothly upon accelleration is not smooth almost feels like a miss but its irratic. when you come up on a uphill grade does want to accelerate at all

Sounds like it could be plugged catalytic converter. If the more you press on the accelorator the worse it runs this could be it. Have someone rev the motor and put your hand at the exhaust. If you don't feel much air flow thYs probably it

When I accelerate it is very jerky. It gets worse and worse until the check engine light comes on. Then after a while of it being on it goes off and the problem goes away only co come back later again.

ask a mechanic to check you fuel lines if it is sporadic good chance you have a issue with dirty fuel intake/ if this isnt the issue drop a line back and ill help with info on your cars micro chip for your fuel managment

Acceleration problems, juddering on a 1.2 16v 2001 plate.

these cars are really acute with there problems and this such prob is usually caused by the air filter needing changing, and full service with plugs and leads doesnt usually go a miss. when was the last time it had new oil and plugs and leads and filters?

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.
