Engine Performance problem
1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 179000 miles

This has been happening since I got this vehicle. At highway speeds there is misfire under light acceleration. Only happens under a light load. I changed all my tune up parts (cap, rotor, plugs, wires) with no change. No codes, and all the sensors seem to be within spec.

Do you
have the same problem?

Engine running rough or misfiring can be cause by the following:

1. Defective spark plug
2. Inadequate spark/coil, defective spark plug wire.
3. Lack of compression
4. False air leakage.
5. Faulty fuel injectors.
6. Insufficient fuel pressure.
7. Contaminated fuel.
8. EGR valve that is leaking.
9. Oxygen sensors.
10. Throttle position sensor.
11. Idle air control valve.

The problem is that it is only under a very light load. Otherwise it runs fine. If I disconnect the Manifold absolute pressure sensor it doesn't do it. But if I monitor the MAP sensor while it is happening it is within spec. O2 sensors are switching regularly. I just don't know where to go. I have suspected fuel injectors in the past, but the fact that it goes away in fault mode lowers my suspicion.

The TPS is also within spec.

Double check the MAP sensor and wiring and also check the EGR valve.
