Hi G. Sanders,
I have a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport which I love and has a K&N filter and approxmately 140k miles. I'm not sure if we are having the same problem but here goes; within a few minutes of cranking up, my Jeep goes through a "chug period" for a few minutes. During those minutes it seems it is not getting fuel.I cannot trust it to pull out in traffic because it seems to lose power during this time as well and sometimes backfires. After a few (maybe 3-5 minutes) it's fine. It doesn't matter whether it's 35 or 95 degrees, it does the same thing. I've had a Jeep "Expert" to look at it and put it on a computer but could not identify the issue. I cannot offer a solution unfortunately but hopefully some Jeep "Angel" can. It is very dangerous and I'm hoping someone can offer some advice. Good luck Jeep buddy.
