Ignition coil

A HUGE HELLO to all that are out there from a newbie. Great Forum. Been a lurker for a LONG time. Have an 09 liberty. 118000 miles. Bought it new.....and never had any "major" issues. (Use it as a daily driver and as a beach buggy.)
Now I have one problem and don't know what to do (maybe)

No problems with acceleration to get to any speed or (4th gear) overdrive. When doing between 45 and 55 on highway in overdrive and I take my foot off the gas I get a slight bucking when I slightly accelerate to get back to speed.
Tach doesn't show any jumping that I can notice. Thought it may have been issue with trans so it's at stealership.
They are saying it's an ignition coil issue. Want to replace all 3 and plugs.
Plugs were last changed at about 60 thou so I have no problem with that.
Should ALL THREE coils be changed or just the one giving me problem? (if they can tell which one)
Thanks

Just change the plugs, not the ignition coils. If problem persists, maybe the coils.
Our KK's aren't that smooth to begin with...

Should be changing your plugs every 30,000 or so with a good copper core plug

You should've already changed them twice since then. Change your plugs and see what happens. If not buy new coils and see again. Don't pay the dealer to do it. It'll be expensive.

The 3 plug wires.

To the OP what ever you do if you do change 1 or all 3 coils make sure you buy the OEM coils from the dealership,there worth the extra $$$.Same goes for the 3 plug wires and change the wires with the coils and/or plugs.

Just remember you can do the spark plugs at home by yourself, and same with the ignition coils. You could probably do it blindfolded.
