2000 4.0 runs rough at 45 mph

When I leave home there is a six mile stretch. For some reason my Cherokee runs rough and sometime backfires if I punch it at 45 mpg. Its runs great at all the other speeds/times. Any ideas why I have this problem? Thanks

Test the O2 Sensor and the Coolant Temperature Sensor. Inspect their wire plugs and wire harnesses for damaged and/or chafed insulation.

.

A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

*Assuming that you haven't seen a check engine light? If so, must retrieve codes for guidance.

*Good idea to check the coolant temperature sensor

*I would verify fuel pressure with a stone cold engine and see if it is in spec., which is 49 psi, plus or minus 5 psi. I have seen a fuel pump be marginal at initial start up after which pressure stabilizes after engine has run a bit.....

Good luck and keep us updated!

Glad it was a simple fix.
