Jerking accelerating

similar problems: After 20min cool down jeep was bucking/lurching that I traced to bad o2 sensor in exhaust manifold (which you've replaced is seems). The second problem of bucking/lurching, backfiring under certain driving conditions I traced to the battery sliding into the computer wiring harness, disrupting sensor input / output signals. I cured this problem by placing a 1" spacer on rear battery clamp, pushing the battery forward. Been years and no return of problem.

My truck was traveling at 70 mph, I gave it more fuel and it bucked and backfired hard enough to feel in cab. Just got new wires, plugs, cap and rotor. Once I let off it continued fine and even ran well...

definately clogged fuel filter or poor fuel pressure. Remove the filter and blow through it-if you have veins stick out of your forehead it is clogged. Go run it hard and then park it and observe the catalytic converter. If it is glowing red, then you have a clogged cat.

The PCM is probably storing a B, C, or U code that your code reader doesn't read. Or, it's storing an enhanced P code. If the light goes on, trust me, there's a code stored. You need a professional level scan tool
