2007 jgc 5.7

Hey everyone. I apologize in advance if I am beating a dead horse with this issue. Did a search and couldn't find what I was looking for.

To the question.

I test drove a 2007 Grand Cherokee 5.7 4x4 today. 97k mikes. Asking 13k. The vehicle had a "shutter" if you will during light acceleration. What are some common problems to cause this issue? Is this something worth getting involved in? Or will it haunt me in the future? I know this is not much information. Any kinda direction or experience with this issue would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

It could be a couple of things,if you really want the motor, get a complete fluid service done. By the dealer, Diffs, tranny and transfercase. If the incorrect fluid is in the axles this could be the cause, the diffs are ELSD and require mopar additive in each fluid change. Binding at low speeds sounds like the fluid is wrong or has no additive. The trucks are really sensitive about they're fluid!!! ;-)
