1997 Jeep Wrangler - Accelerator Problem

Please help! I have a 1997 Jeep Wrangler, with which I have a love/hate relationship. The latest sleight it has dealt me is to slow down even when I'm pressing the accelerator. This happened to me last week when I was on the highway going about 60. I started to pull over as I was just coasting...but by the time the speedometer hit 40, it started working again. I then increased the speed to 60 at which point, the same thing happened. When the speed went down to 40 the second time, I was again able to increase my speed and then it did not happen again.

Throughout the week, I was able to drive to and from work (never hitting 60 mph) and the problem did not happen again. Today, I was on the highway for about an hour with no problems. When I hit the off-ramp and was going about 45...the same thing happened! I pulled over and stopped for fear of the Jeep stalling while trying to merge. I shut it off and waited for a while, then restarted it and it ran fine.

Additional info...everytime it was slowing down, it had a few slight jerks...

Does anyone know what this could be? Is it possible that it is a fuel filter? Any other ideas?

Thanks!
Christine

Replace your Fuel Filter and Fuel Pump. They are Both the Cause of this Problem.
