Question about 1999 Jeep Wrangler

Won't go past 40 miles per hour

My 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee will not accelerate past 40 miles per hour. Changed the spark plugs, added fuel injector cleaner. There is a crack in my muffler pipe. Could that be the problem?

    i had the muffler replaced. my catalitic converter is messed up too. mechanic said to fix whatever is clogging these up first before getting a new converter. and i had them both replaced two years ago. i bought a tps sensor but haven't put it in. can it be my oxygen sensor too?

You haven't changed sensor controls spark and fuel mixture as does the throttle position sensor, also check the idle control valve...Don't just buy testing first.

Very rough idle on 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Edition V8

If you haven't changed the plugs or had the fuel system cleaned, now would be a good time to do it. The number 1 culprit for rough idles is dirty injectors or plugs. You can try an injector cleaner in a can (or bottle) for under $10 and see if it helps, and then work from there. If there isn't any improvement then if you are able to, check the plugs for any gunky buildup and if you find a bad plug, make sure you replace them all (or have them replaced) at the same time.

My jeep grand cherokee is smoking really bad. Black smoke and it also skips. What might this be?

Black smoke is too much fuel. Bad spark plug, or plugs, bad spark plug wire or wires, bad injector, allow engine to cool, pull the spark plugs. does one look bad? Replace one or all. Plug wires don't last forever. An injector can stick open an pass too much gas :)

Won't accelerate past 40 miles per hour

these jeeps did have a small problem with the tp sensor. i would also have the back pressure of the exhaust checked to see if you have a catalytic converter choked up.
