I deliver mail in this jeep and after 2 or 3 hours of stopping and going every 100' or so, it acts like it is choking on something. It drives any other time just fine. If I can't keep the engine running it will die and will immediately start but surges and stalls unless I have enough distance to keep it moving and then it rights itself. I have to turn the AC off. If I park it for 20 or 30 minutes it is fine. Last Saturday I used 1st gear going box to box and it took a little while longer to develop the problem. It doesn't do this in the winter, it started at the end of last summer. It seems like the jeep doesn't like the outside temperature above 80. 2 mechanics told me it had to be acting up when they look at it and that is not possible. Do you have any Ideas?

Its at the endof the duct work from air cleaner you have to remove the duct work to see it an dwhen your throttle opens so does the plate.

It worked great one day and almost made it through the 2nd. Day. Any thoughts on how to improve the condition? I do appreciate the feeling you gave me on the day it worked great.
Thank You

If that helped what I suggested then check fuel pressure with a gauge. Should be 41-51 psi may be low.

OK I am following with what has been done and it still has the problem of choking and stalling. 1st the IAC valve, both O2 sensors and the fuel filter were replaced. Next installed a replacement PCM for a trial period of 2 weeks. None of this repaired the problem. Then cam sensor or catalytic converter have not been replaced. Another symptom was noticed, sometimes it smells like a burnt match, not rotten eggs and not an electrical burn smell. Any more ideas?

The scan revealed 2 codes active in memory. O2 sensor signal voltage high and B1S2, & IAC coil circuit fault. I am not sure of fuel pressure. What would be replaced to repair fuel pressure, pump?

For fuel pressure could be regulator blocked line, filter or pump. Test it before wasting your money on needless parts like yo have already

Ok pressure is ok without actually seeing this I have reached my limit of what to do next. So have a local pro look at this see if he can scan it and find something else on his scanner. I cannot find the B1s2 code and the other two codes that are coming up in memeory that you have may be the cause as you didn't give those out.

We found it, I hope. Mechanic came out to me on my route and heard and felt it act up. Did another pressure check then and the pump blew a lot of air. The pressure was fine, but the air suggested to him an old and dirty pump. Changed it and the filter because you are already there. I have had one day of no problems. I am telling you this so you can store it in your memory and I hope it helps you one day.
