If you have a 3.6L Pentastar and you are feeling engine hesitation when accelerating, replace your Crankshaft Position Sensor. It’s about a $20 part and easy to replace. πŸ™‚Β

Thanks for the tip Kevin,

I had the same problem with the TJ.Β 

On the TJ the RPM would fluctuate about 700 RPM on the highway and the Jeep felt like it was bucking for a few seconds then return to normal. Changed the Crank Position Sensor and no troubles since.

And a lot cheaper than a diagnostics fee. πŸ™‚
