    Feeling gutless on takeoff and shifting problem on freeway

    Hey guys! So I have a 2008 JKU Sahara and have had it for about 2 months now. About a week ago it started feeling gutless taking off from a stop. Then I noticed on the freeway when I hit about 60 mph it won’t shift up. The engine is roaring and the RPM’s sit steady around 4.25. I don’t dare take it any faster at that point and just sit at around 60 mph on the freeway. Any ideas? Thanks so much!

    Bad gas, air filter, any engine lights? Transmission fluid full? Have you changed tires?

    Tires are good. Almost brand new. The check engine light was on at one point but I took the gas cap off and re tightened it. After about an hour it went off and hasn’t come back on. I haven’t checked transmission fluid or air filter yet. It’s weird cause it doesn’t do it all the time.
