No autostick in my '07 and I've already adjusted my driving style to mitigate a bit but there's only so much coasting and slow acceleration before you get killed in I-10 traffic. Plus I want to solve the problem not treat the symptoms since I never had an issue for over 3 yrs. I guess I'll give the "reset" a shot. Thanks for the input!
Try some higher Octane fuel. I have the exact same symptom when using the typical 85 RON Regular Unleaded available locally. (The Patriot engine requires 87 RON.) Using a midgrade "Plus" (88-89 RON) fuel has eliminated the engine stumbling I was experiencing in the 2-3k rpm range....When I accelerate in 3rd gear and the RPM is between 2 and 3 I feel some jerking in my Jeep as well....
