    2012 JK Stalling out AGAIN!!! HAAAAALLLPPPPP

    2012 Jk with the classic ever problematic 3.6 Penstar Motor. 92k miles. On its 3rd head! Thank god itís covered under the recall. Last time I was in dealer I informed them the Jeep would often bog out on me. Itís like a fuel cut off of some sort. The motor has a power loss and within a millisecond it gains power back but suffers a loss. Itís like the motor falls to the bottom of power band every time. Well after so many times and depending on how Iím accelerating, the motor shuts off and then Iím left to roll off to side of the road. The dealer has never been able to replicate the problem. Not even the bog out issue. My part time gear head part of brain thinks itís fuel related. Hoping someone in here knows of this issue and can direct me to the issue. I should include this issue seems to be seasonal as well. I only experience it when itís cooler temps. Also the JJ isnít throwing any code what so ever.

    Side note if anyone can recommend an awesome tech in the N.J. area I would appreciate that as well! I replaced my heater core once, and oil filter housing as well. I honestly donít care to turn any more wrenches on it. This thing has drained me, but hey itís paid off!

    I also have a 2012 with about 94K. Mine starting doing something similar to what you are saying. If I had the cruise control on it would kick that off when it lost power. Almost like the engine was burping. Everyone told me it had something to do with the charcoal filter being clogged. I think it was just some bad gas that took a long time to get though the system. Every time I would fill up it would do act up on the way home from the gas station. But over the last month it started to be less aggressive. Then all the sudden it stopped about two weeks ago.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
