Losses power after running for a couple of minutes

Looking for help. I have a 2000 Grand Cherokee with 4.0 it starts ok after a couple of minutes it losses power. You try to go from a light and it does want to go. I have to push on the gas pedal much harder then normal. It will only run bad for a couple of minutes then run good. I had it in the driveway and got it to do it and at a idle it sounded like it was having a tough time sucking air in so I changed the idle air valve, then throttle position sensor,air & water temp sensors it is not throwing any codes. Any help would be appreciated!

I'm having the same problem with my '99 XJ. I'm thinking it's a fuel issue, so I'm looking forward to some answers to your thread.

I checked fuel pressure it is good 50 PSI, I just checked the map sensor I think it is good. After running for a minute at an idle I can hear the air getting choked going in the motor it will run like that for a minute then run fine

I just went out and started it up and let idle for about 5 minutes and it never stalled out. It seems to only have the problem if I start it up and take off within a few minutes. I guess if I just let her do her thing then drive her, she'll be ok. I should know that since I'm married.
