2008 jeep compass sport 2.4
my vehicle was driving just fine until it drastically slowed down. it seemed the more i accelerated the slower the vehicle moved. i think i heard about recalls due to this particular model. maybe a bad component?

RE: 2008 jeep compass sport 2.4
Obviously something is wrong. You didn't mention if the check engine light came on or if there were any associated odd noises with the problem. If you didn't run out of gas (my first guess) then we need more to go on. Will it restart again, even of only for a second? If you give it a shot of starting fluid will it respond at all? If the answer is no to both of those then you need to check for spark and get back to us. You might also try adding a couple of gallons to the fuel tank in case the gauge is wrong.

BTW, if the check engine light did come on any time recently then a scan for codes will help us. Post the exact code numbers here and we'll chat more..
