Angry 06 Cherokee engine issue need help!

Whenever my jeep is not warmed up (in the morning for work) as soon as I start her up the engine light blinks and if I start to accelerate it seems to be stuck in gear (its a automatic 6 cyclinder) I cant go over 10 mph for like 30 sec. then ill feel it kick into gear and ill be all set for the day or until the jeep sits for like 4 hours then the same problem occurs. I've brought it in twice so far and they cant seem to find the problem, I dont want to wait until it literally breaks down to find the problem. Any ideas??

2006 cherokee laredo 4x4 6 cyclinder auto

ive changed the tranny fluid, did nothing

Re: 06 Cherokee engine issue need help!

If your engine lamp blinks you have a misfire occurring. From there you need to find the cylinder it is happening to, you can try the key dance (turning the key on and off 3 times the last time leaving the key in the on position and watch your odometer, if it says "DONE" there are no codes, if it says PXXXX (X's being numbers) then write those down and share them with us.

Re: 06 Cherokee engine issue need help!

Search youtube "chrysler key dance" to verify your doing it right.... I know some don't but was almost positive this was one that would work.

If you have an autozone nearby they will pull codes and print you out a sheet with what they retrieve.
