If someone has adjusted the adjustment at the top of the steering box too tight you will have that type of feel in the steering.

SOURCE: RPM jumps

Does the RPM seem to bog down around 3000 - 3500? If so you have fuel delivery problem> Start with the filter.

SOURCE: my 95 tahoe has an occasional ticking noise, loss of oil pressure at idle and loss of power

Prognosis is really bad, hate to tell you. Ticking comes from the valve lifters, losing lubrication due to lack of pressure and running dry. At redlights, when revs are at idle, oil pressure drops a lot, and engine really suffers. Have the vehicle taken immediately to a shop for proper diagnose and to see if engine can still be saved. The loss of power comes from the valves not actuating properly. Hydraulic lifters need oil at a decent pressure to "charge" , and if not charged, they will stay compressed, ruining valve lifting operation.

Most likely cause fuel pressure ineffient. It is also possible the catalytic convertors are clogging up. Next time it happens feel the floor board above the cats if it is hot then you most likely know what is causing your issue is clogged cats.

Sounds like your catalytic converters may be plugged up. You can do a quick check by loosening the exhaust pipes from the manifolds and see how it performs.

I have a 1997 jeep cherokee that turns off while i am driving


This is beginning to look like a pervasive problem not unique to your vehicle. It would be interesting to learn exactly what failed inside the pumps you changed. I don't have any good answers yet but I would make a direct ground connection from the battery to the pump harness to eliminate any possibility of overheating of the pump motor from a poor ground, and see if it helps any. Also check all pump connections before you install it.
