Engine Performance problem
2001 Jeep Laredo V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 100200 miles
It is winter in Denver and my Jeep is having trouble. Recently had it winterized and the oil filter changed. I do have a radiator leak I put fix a leak in and it has slowed it down until I can afford to get it replaced.
For the last couple of days in the early morning when I first start it up it stalls and then after a few minutes it starts up. It does the same thing in the late evening. I read that someone had a similar problem with the cold start and the problem may be the idole air control motor. Not sure if this is what I should be checking or not, please help?
Also my transmission hesitates when it reaches 50 its fine at low speads and 60+ does this indicate I will need a new transmission soon or could it be the governor pressure sensor?
Thank you for your help and happy holidays.
