Angry 2007 Jeep Compass Problem

I am having the problem with acceleration of my 2007 jeep compass. It has been going on for two days now. I have had my car for two years. Up until now I have not had a problem. I took it to the dealership today and they reset a code. Mind you, I have not had any warning signals or anything. At first I thought maybe it was the Transmission. They checked that out and everything comes up good. They reset the code, I drove the car home and it started doing the same thing again. I to had the gas petal to the floor and it was just sitting there then it finally moved slowly, but then picked up speed. Now I have to go back to the dealer, whom i called as soon as I got home. They asked that I come back tomorrow morning 10/19/2010 and they are going to have a tech ride with me. Will keep you posted.

Same thing has started happening to me over the past few days. It only seems to happen when it is very cold and before the engine has completely warmed up. I can pull out of my driveway, and no matter how hard I try to accellerate, it just creeps along until about 20mph, then everything starts working as normal. Have tried auto and 1st and 2nd gear on the CVT with the same results. Once the engine temp comes up, the problem seems to go away.

Welcome to the forum acastleberry! What year Compass do you have? Are you going to take it in and let someone look at it?

Thanks, Cherokee. It's an '09 Rallye with about 56K on it. I don't have any plans to take it in yet as it's extremely sporadic. If it worsens or continues to be a regular issue, I'll probably take it in. Just thought some of the others here might have some ideas.

this has happened to mine a few times randomly during the summer, and twice in -30C. the last time i toggled the traction control and it worked normally again. anyone else having this problem give that a try and let us know if that works for you too.

Just in the past 3 weeks my comass had the complete loss of acceleration twice both times i finaly noticed the transmition oil light was on and the manual said that the oil was overheating so i pulled over waited 5 min .when i restarted it the light was still on but i had 50% power so i set cruise control on 40 mile per hour and it cooled enough while driving that i had full power after 15 min

It must be slipping the steel band inside. There is not much else to generate excess heat in this. CVT's have no slippage and the fluid is for lubrication. You may want to check with a reliable auto shop on this. The dealer will only do a replacement and unless you're under powertrain warranty the price is way up there somewhere.

so in your opinion its the trany itself not the lubricant itself. Is it possible to have a unoticable trany oil leak that they could drain and flush the system

Whatever they are using in the CVT is going to be some highly developed synthetic oil for the application. There is a special tool to check the level. Some garages and tranny shops may have the tool. If its way down it could be the reason but then the issue of where is it leaking. You'd have to feel around the housing and see if there's evidence of oil running down the surface somewhere. Where you go to get it checked depends on the warranty status. But doing nothing because it cooled down is still looking for big trouble if it can be save.

In my opinion, get the level checked by a known CVT shop, dealer or tranny shop. If possible be there when they're doing it. If its really low they can top it up with the right stuff but the leak still needs to be found.

Not likely if its miles and not km. Depends what it came with some people got the lifetime powertrain in the USA only. Anyway this is a wrong move in that you don't know. I very highly recommend you phone the dealership and have them confirm that before hand. No disrespect but if she gives them the go ahead to repair the $$$ could send you packing. On the phone after confirming ask the service advisor why the CVT overheat light would come on while driving and loosing power. It costs nothing over the phone. If the warranty is still in question then call Chrysler since they have the details the dealer references and needs their approval before they would do anything other than checking various things.

bottom line, know what you are both walking into and don't send her in without her understanding what might happen. Otherwise you may want to get an opinion from a tranny shop or reputable garage. Either way estimate only and know the charges up front. Maybe you should be taking it in somewhere. I think most of us do know when our warranty has ended or is about to.

Hello again!

Sorry for not posting earlier because I forgot about it. At the dealership they change an EGR valve and the car is back to normal. That was here in Puerto Rico so I don't know if they know anything in the States. I don't remember well because it was like 5 or 6 months ago but I will check the work order to know what they did to the Compass.

mine did that, loss of acceleration and only had about 1k miles on, but while I was on the way to the dealer it stop doing it, so the dealer said it was all ok, and gave me the look like i was nuts. no lights came on at all.


but now it has kind of a misfire everytime i stop at a red light.

CVT does not need a cooler like a regular automatic does. The optional cooler for the Compass is and engine oil cooler to enhance the towing capability.

If its overheating there is something internally wrong and the fluid level is very criticle. If there is a leak then that will be a problem. However just trying to cool it is masking the source of the problem. The steel band may be slipping generating the heat. But odd are you need a new CVT, they are not bullet proof. I am on the 2nd one.

Overheating is likely due to worn out fluid, with 111k miles your well due for an oil change. The trick is changing all of the fluid, a quickie 5 minute oil and filter change is not usually going to be enough. Cracking the valve body loose, allowing it to drain for a couple of hours if possible (overnight), and rotating the engine 180 degrees a few times to help drain the converter. Then refill to the absolute minimum mark, less fluid the better.
