Question about Jeep Cherokee
I have an 1988 Jeep cherokee Laredo. When I accelerate it cuts out or hesitates and shakes and lacks power. If I let up on the accelerator, its alittle better ...I'm thinking its the fuel filter. Plugs and wires have already been checked and are in good shape. Appreciate any advice or comments!
Fuel filters are cheap and simple to change, so try that first. If that is not your problem it may be your catalytic converter. Before having that replaced, check your fuel return line. You should be able to blow thru the line with your mouth. If you can't, or it's really hard to do. . . then you have blockage. The blockage could be flooding your engine with fuel. Checking the fuel pressure with a gauge from an auto parts store may help you out. If the pressure is really high, then that may be your problem.

I had the same problem at high speeds, it was the throttle position sensor
