2005 loping on take off/low speeds
My first jeep. I've been driving standards all my life, but am having a little problem getting the hang of this one. I wanted to check and be sure it's me instead of the jeep. It's a 2005 six cylinder, 6 speed manual. Sometimes when I ease out the clutch the jeep will start loping until I push the clutch back in. It'll also start doing it a slow speed. I understand the mechanics of a manual drive vehicle, but I've never had this much problem getting the feel for it. The jeep starts, idles, and runs fine. I drove an 18 wheeler once that acted the same way when I tried to take off, and it was a matter of getting used to it. I want to be sure that's the case with this one. Thanks much! Oh yea, I've had the jeep two days.
