Hey guys ! so i’m having a huge issue with my 2016 jeep cherokee 6cly. 84,000 miles bought it used about 3 months ago. The car is starting to hiccup when i’m stop, and also does it while i’m driving at certain speed. Now i’ve changed all 6 spark plugs figuring that might be the issue but nothing. also i’m getting no check engine light on either so it makes it more difficult to figure it out. If anyone has had the same issue what was the problem?

Sounds like the old rocker bearing failure beginning. It always starts with the misfire. Now is the time to address it, before it destroys the cams...😎

Yep most likely a misfire. Roller rockers failing are very common on the V6. If you hear a ticking or tapping noise top side of engine that is most likely the issue. You will set a cel code but by then the cam(s) are usually scored and need replacing as well.
