Manual Tranny 1rst Gear stutter

I just got my Pat yesterday..love it!! Only problem I've noticed is that when driving with the AC full boar, in first gear sometimes the engine just dies..even when I'm giving it plenty of gas, the Jeep just sits there..stalled on me once.

I don't know if it is old gas or something else. Anyone have any ideas?

Trinity - Your Patriot is too new to be stalling like that.

Did it do this the day you bought it, or some time later?

It could be bad gas, but it could be many other things as well.

Since it is still under warranty, I would leave it up to the Dealer to find the problem and fix it. I would ask for a loaner car while you wait for them to fix it.

I agree...after one day of ownership, this is definitely something that needs to be checked by the dealer.

A question to those who have more specific knowledge of the mechanicals of this platform than I do: The original poster mentioned that it seems to happen when the a/c is going at full force. Am I dreaming, or did I read somewhere that the a/c compressor is clutchless, and therefore is engaged at all times?

The A/C is always on (somehow for lubrication) but I do notice on mine with a CVT that it does cut down on the idle speed so with the A/C actually turned on it does rob some hp. The "Low speed performance" Service Bulletin had a mention in it about increasing the idle speed with the A/C on also.

I haven't noticed any loss of power when driving with my A/C on ... in fact this is one of the first cars I've ever owned where there hasn't been that obvious power loss!! When driving my wife's ZX2 with the A/C on, you really know it.

Not so much a noticeable loss of power just a very slight reduction in idle speed. Not that I can feel it , I notice it on the tach, just a waver of the needle. Nothing that I'm complaining about though. I agree about everything else that I've ever had was a major loss of power when you switched on the A/C!
