Hi - I had my throttle body cleaned because my jeep compass
lost all power last week. That turned the light off, but today while driving, the car just turned off in the middle of me turning. Lost power steering and everything.
JA: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?
Customer: It's just happened once. But it was very scary, I could have easily been T-Boned as the car just stopped in the middle of turning.
JA: What year is your Compass?
JA: Are you fixing your Compass yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I'm not fixing myself, but I feel the dealer's have no clue on what to do. Last Friday while driving to work, the car's power really died down and I couldn't drive faster than 25 mph. I drove it to a mechanic and they recommended cleaning the throttle body to take the light off and return it to normal driving. I drove it 5 miles when I had this issue. I've drove it for another 20 now without a problem.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: It seems by looking online that this problem is common with Jeeps, but Nobody really has a solution.
