1998 Jeep Wrangler engine hesitation
While driving and/or accelerating from a stop, my Jeep will start to chug, the rpm idle when stopped will jump up and down as it chugs. As if it does not want to continue, I pull over, hold gas pedal to get rpm up between 2 and 3, hold it there for a few minutes, then it will clear out and run great. It is a 5 speed, have replaced ignition sensor and O2 sensor, thinking thats what it was
