2006 g/c hesitation
2006 jeep g/c 3.7 v-6 75k miles. Hesitation under acceleration since new not constantly, occasionaly. Took it to the dealer had them check it twice while under warranty, they found no problem, was told it was normal. Fast forward to this past week, car surges occasionally, then today would not go above 25mph when first started up. after about a mile, got to stop sign, went to go, hesitated then took off like there was nothing wrong. worked fine for the rest of the day.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
thank you, Mike

Re: 2006 g/c hesitation
the delay on startup is the transmission fluid. it will not leave first gear until the fluid reaches temp, it is a PITA
