It sounds like you have two different problems. First it sounds like you have a transmission problem. It sounds like the band for 2nd gear is bad. As for the fuel milage problem, Is the check engine light on? If it was only running on 6 cylinders you should feel it.

GAS EFFICIENCY PROBLEMS!


Have your temperature sending unit tested. This sensor is connected to the computer and tells the computer to put engine in "cold start mode". When this sensor doesn't tell the computer to shut off cold start mode, the engine is getting more fuel still after warm-up. That could be causing your excessive fuel usage. As for the fuel gage, don't be concerned. It's working properly. When going up a hill the gas goes to the back of the tank where the float is and causes gage to rise, and vice versa when going downhill.

I have been logging my gas mileage on my Jeep Grand Cherokee for the last 9 years. My jeep has a Straight 6 cylinder motor, that has given me about 17mpg city and 23 mpg highway. This last summer my jeep...


I would start by pulling a spark plug and looking at condition. With that kind of mileage, has it ever had a valve job? Valve's burn and valve springs get weak, could have a carbon problem. Also compare the brands of fuel you're using, many have changed their formulas - I've noticed it with my own cars. Also have your mechanic do a compression test.
