I've just replaced the engine in my 99 (4.0 SOHC, 5 speed atx) and it runs great. Everytime I attempt to drive it I have the same problem. I thought it was fuel, replaced the filter and pump. Removed the plenum and checked for vacuum leaks. Thought maybe the coil pack was breaking down, replaced that no change. Please let me know if you've figured yours out. Joe

I finally found my answer, a blocked MAF tube. I bought this truck in July of last year and before that, it had been sitting since January. Apparently, some insect made it's way up into the horn and then to the tub of the MAF. It blocked off both ends of the tube with webbing and that was my problem. Check your MAF and make sure the tube is clear (you'll need a security torx to remove it from the horn). Joe
