Car Jerks and Hesitates

Hello,

I have noticed lately, probably within the last 1K miles, my car has been jerking when switching gears and it also is starting to hesitate a lot longer than it used to when I press on the gas (as if I am going to pass someone on the highway). I am taking my Jeep to the dealership to get an oil change in a week or two so I was wondering, is there anything I can do about the car jerking or hesitating? I tried turning off the eco mode and also driving in sport mode but it does not make much of a difference. Any info would be helpful.

Thanks.

Ask your dealer about and have him perform the adaptive quick learn procedure.

Why, by chance in any one of the multiple threads and hundreds (or thousands?) of posts on the subject?

Thank you for showing me this. I was looking all over for any viable solution and all I was finding did not have an answer to fix this. Hopefully this works.
