2009 pariot -2.4 liter- std transmission. loses power when going up a hill. operates ok on level, but maxes out at 20 mph going up a moderate incline. please help. thank you.
JA: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

JA: What is the model of your '09 Jeep?
Customer: It is the basic sport model.
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
