Runs great for about 10-30 minutes then just sputters and jerks and cuts off/looses power when pushing gas pedal to floor, but starts back up and runs rough. I replaced ckp sensor and cam sensor at distributor and it still cuts off after 10 minutes of driving. I hooked up a fuel pressure gauge and drove it around for 10 to 15 miles and it didn't cut off one time. Thought I might have had air pocket in the fuel system but it did the same thing a day or two later. Fuel pressure was reading 42-50 psi. This has me confused. Help please

I went back to check my basics on this jeep; found no codes or vacuum leaks. But did find a loose connection at MAP sensor; unplugged reconnected; problem solved. Thanks eddies garage
