I have an '04 Jeep Wrangler with no modifications to the engine, 40k miles, manual transmission five speed, inline 6 cylinder.
The engine was running fine and then slowly over the course of a few minutes it began to run rough and had loss of power. The engine light came on as I tried to accelerate it would run rougher.
When checking the engine codes I get P0305 and P1596.
I have not been off roading with it recently and I also have not been through any type of water, mud, or dirt that I could think would have caused anything to become dirty.
I replaced all the spark plugs knowing they were due for a change and thinking that one might be fowled. This did not make any improvements.
Is it possible the Throttle Position Sensor could cause this trouble? If so can I simple replace this sensor or is there anything special to consider when replacing it?
If it's not the TPS and other ideas what might be causing this?
have the same problem?
