Question about 1992 Jeep Cherokee Sport
Got a 98 TJ wrangler. 147,000 2.5 4cyl. 4WD
For about 2 weeks now the engine seems to be losing power. Just took it on a 6 hour road trip and had a hard time accelerating. It would hold 70mph on flat ground but lose power fast going uphill. As this problem started it sounded like a small exhaust leak. Like you could hear air escaping timed with the engine. That sound only occurred at low RPM but has shifted to high RPM as of this last trip. And is starting to sound more like an old farm truck. To make it all worse there is a small oil leak that seems new. Any ideas? Once it cools off I am going to check the plugs, wires and cap.
Sounds as if converter on exhaust is getting plugged up. have it checked and replaced. That will force exhaust out ahead of it where ordinarily it would flow with less pressure. Oil leak is a separate item.
