2007 - Grand Cherokee - Hesitation - already spent $3900.00 trying to fix - HELP

2007 Grand Cherokee - Started out with felt like transmission was slipping - $2900.00 later the vehicle now has a hesitation in exceleration. Replaced two coils one injector / spark plugs / fuel filter. Just picked back up and started doing it again. It is not throwing a code that points to a specific problem. Any suggestions any ideas. I luv my Jeep but this is about to brake me.

I am going thru the same issue. I bought it to the dealer told them it buckles, transmission slips. I had no warning light but just a "Service 4 Wheel Drive System" They wanted me to by a whole new transfer case and saw nothing else wrong. I took the car back and wanted a second opinion. So was going to bring it in for maintence today and bingo - light popped on, so now waiting for the call to see what exactly is the problem. Will keep you posted but going thru the same thing - hundreds trying to figure this thing out!!

Apparently not fuel filter is seperate - also replaced a vent hose ... Code came back up that Injector 2 is bad and that is the one that was just replaced. It's siting at the shop now. I was also told it set alot of ghost codes. Have no idea what that means.

Question - Do you have a k&N filter? or aftermarket filter that requires oil?
Reason I ask... Sounds like you may simply have a dirty MAF sensor. ( Mass airflow sensor ) It's located in the air intake tube. If the wire sensor has oil residue or dirt on it - then you will result in erratic air/fuel messages to the computer. The sensor is easily cleaned with MAF cleaner ( spray can like throttle body cleaner) DONT USE THROTTLEBODY CLEANER. You can get it at most parts stores. $6-8 a can. remove the air intake tube, remove the sensor and spray the wire clean.

I also have the same issue. It only happens every once in awhile and only when i start it. Its like the car doesn't want to accelerate for a couple of seconds and almost bogs down when you push on gas. Then after the few seconds it runs like a champ. Any suggestions?

Garage
If one injector is clogged, then it is entirely possible that other received similar crap too. You may want to consider replacing all injectors. On my WJ the #4 injector stopped working properly. I had that one done at the dealer, and then #8 started causing issues. I did that one and another one in my garage, and all has been good since then. If anything else happens, I am just going to replace all of them.

Injectors all get their input from the same dirty tank. If one is clogged, odds are that others will have issues.
