Question about 1991 Jeep Cherokee Limited

1 Answer

My cherrokee spits,sputters & bucks whenever I come to an upgrade. Also when I step on the gas while driving as to increase my speed? I've changed plugs;wires;cap;rotor;MAP sensor;tps;oxygen sensor; coil & it still does it. When I put it to the floor to pass it goes like hell,no problem. What could be causing this to happen? Inline six, 4.0 automatic, MPI, 4x4.

Sounds like you have thrown the kitchen sink at it!!! Have you done any testing to verify that the parts you replaced had a problem? If not, you can empty your bank account and not fix this.
I'd check the tps and also the injectors, which may be working but if pintles are dirty or worn out it can alter spray pattern...On hard acceleration, you literally can stick a garden hose in the air inlet and it will lower rpm and load, pattern needs to be much more precise. I'd do a lot more testing and looking before buying any more parts though.

    Glad to hear it's fixed...Best way I know of to keep the injectors clean is to add 3oz of acetone and 3oz of marvel oil per 10 gals of fuel about once per month. It will not harm system seals and usually gives better mpg as well as cleaning the injector nozzles. Only time I saw this fail is on a pontiac that someone had "repaired" the fuel pump with "fuel proof" glue...The acetone turned the glue to goo. But no stock system has glued in components!!!
    Good luck!!

If the sputter got real bad, I could smell what smelled like weed eater gas inside the cabin. As you could also imagine, there is a loss of power.

Is the service engine light on or did you check for any codes? Was your TPS adjustable and if so did you adjust it properly? How about the last time you did a tune up and replaced the fuel filter? Maybe an ignition wire is burned by the exhaust.

5 years ago for cap & rotor???? It sounds like it's in dire need of a complete tune up - plugs. wires, cap, rotor, all fluids & filters ESPECIALLY fuel filter. I'd start there and run a good fuel system cleaner through it. Do your tune ups more frequently like every 30K - not wait 5 years!
