Why won't my jeep liberty, get over 45mph and then goes dead and when it idles, it WONT let me accelerate past 2rpm (200? or 2000?)

lost power, 101:
all engines gas need tuneups. ever get that? in last 10 years.?
RPM is low. 2000. RPM is my guess (dial is 1k per mark)
so is NOT transmission slip. so is ENGINE power lost.
lost power, ever put in new spark plugs?
and gap them as the hood sticker shows?
(all answers USA Answers)
no actual engine disclosed.. or even the YEAR.
2002 or is it a 2012 car?
3.7L seems the only one.... V6.

lost power has over 50 causes. we use 1 to 10 tools to find it.
we never guess all 50 and go , nop that that.. .next......
my guess is engine misfires (can you feel it do that?)
if yes that is bad spark , most times.
but could be leaking or dead injectors.
if it only bogs,? feels like pulling a 10,000 block of concrete?
then low fuel pressure.
scan the PCM yet>?

got P03xx DTC errors SCANNED???????

well if the RPM advances fast on engine and the car speed dont
that is tranny slip.
on the other hand if the engine RPM stays low, and speed is low that
is engine power loose.

Losing power 98 TJ wrangler

Sounds as if converter on exhaust is getting plugged up. have it checked and replaced. That will force exhaust out ahead of it where ordinarily it would flow with less pressure. Oil leak is a separate item.

No power uphill

"Loss in power" usually means that the combustion chamber in your cars engine is full of carbon. That is left behind because of the unburned fuel. With that type of problem, fuel responses will be slower, poor acceleration, lower rpm, etc. You may overhaul your engine for them to clean the carbon manually, but it'll be expensive and could lead to "loose compression". That means the engine won't be as powerful or responsive as before.

The best way would be to have a carbon ridding solution injected into the engine. The solution will liquify the carbon and other build-ups, which would then restore the "power" of your car. You'll get better acceleration, higher rpm and top speed, etc. have a mechanic do it for you. It's alot cheaper and faster than having the engined overhauled.
