Customer Question
first starting my car, going...
Jeep Compass 2011, I have a hard time accelerating when first starting my car, going uphill and turning would cause the car to completely stop if I don't let it run for awhile first. When accelerating I have to press the gas pedal all the way down to get a little bit of rpm.My car starts to drive decent after letting it run for awhile but I can feel the transmission slipping sometimes when increasing speed.I got these codes from an autozone obd check:
p0506 Idle speed performance lower than expected
p0746 line pressure solenoid performance
p0730 incorrect gear ratio
p0777 secondary pressure solenoid stuck on (low pressure)
