this is going to sound mean but your 4 cyl actually had power?? LOL I have a 4 cyl and it is not powerful by any means. I have always had to downshift one and sometimes 2 gears to make it up a hill and keep speed.

So onto your question now . So it just started happening or has it been a on going problem. Has your gas mileage been affected also? When was the last time it had a tune up (miles on the jeep now?)

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

My 4cyl, has NEVER been able to keep speed up a hill. Even driving into a 5mph wind I can only do about 60. Winds blowing about 30mph today...my guess is I'll only be able to drive 50mph all the way home.

What size tires?
I went from 215 75 15's to 30 x9.50 and it was a huge dropoff on what performance it did have.
