Customer Question

When driving around 60 to 70 mph the vehicle is at around 2000 rpm but when it starts to climb a small incline it drops to 3rd and then back to 4 and then if I accelerate just a little it drops back down to 3rd. Very annoying.
JA: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the fuel filters?
Customer: Its a 2011 jeep liberty with only 44000 miles
JA: Are you fixing your Liberty yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Not sure. If its a cable adjustment or something like that I am sure I could handle it
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no
