Its in the fuel get to it you have to make sure you have less than 1/4 of fuel in it. then crawl under the jeep from the back head first,when u get to the other end of the tank look up you will see what look like a big ring with wires and 2 fuel lines comeing out of it,thats the fuel pump access.disconnect the lines and wires,turn the ring counter clockwise useing a brass punch or anything that wont spark,and a hammer,then pull out slowly.

When i start my mach 1 it runs fine when i use it for 5 to ten minets then when i go up a hill it bogs down and doesnt move and will die

Sounds like either your fuel pump and or fuel filter is bad. Change fuel filter first and try the hill. If it still bogs down sounds like fuel pump is almost ready to die. Get a pressure test run on fuel pump.

If above does not work then it maybe maybe your catalytic converter. Have it checked. Good luck

Why does my car bog down and wont accelerate up a hill?

Usually a sign of a fuel problem, either too much or too little.
Too much could be several problems including a clogged air filter, too little could be a weak fuel pump or other issue.
A mechanic would check fuel pressure and air flow first.

Jerks and looses power on hills and flat land no engine light comes on what can be wrong?

When you said it feels like its not getting enough gas, you may be right.
Since you have replaced the fuel filter, and you are not getting a check engine light, my suggestion would be to check fuel pressure with a gauge. The fuel pump may be weak.

Need help with my 88' celebrity 2.8L v6,

What is the fuel pressure reading now? Has the distributor ignition rotor ever been replaced? They burn through and cause all kinds of problems. Also this could be spark plug wires leaking or shorting out to the engine block. I would take a very close look at the ignition systems condition.

Hard to start.When running,Will "bog"out when

You may have a fuel issue the cheapest thing to do is a simple fuel filter replacement an old filter can cause backups in the gas line. Also check to make sure your air cleaner assembly is fully hooked up and no hoses or clamps are loose. less air cause these same symptoms.

Black exhaust smoke from Jeep Cherokee 2.5 CRD

The smoke and the the bogging down are due to either too much fuel flow or to too little airflow. Your engine is flooding and running way to rich hence the low fuel mileage. Could be a faulty pump with too high pressure, bad or wrong sized injectors, (assuming they actually fixed the sensor problem) or airflow restriction,
