4.0 problems

my 93 wrangler 4.0, it idles fine, you can rev the guts out of it while its sitting there, but when you go down the road and the engine gets warmer it gets a hesitation then it loses power. what could be the problem? could it be the cps? and if so is there a way you can test them?

How old is the cat converter? When they start to go bad they will begin to hurt high end peformance and then it just keeps getting worrse until it starts to literally choke an engine off when it gets hot. It gets progressively worse over time.

Do you know what was good about the good old days? I wasn't good, And I wasn't old!

Senators and Congressman should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers so we could identify their corporate sponsors....

Check your fuel pressure at the rail and report back.

When was the last time the fuel filter was changed?
Have you checked for codes?
You mite want to pick up a fuel pressure gauge and run it to the inside so you can monitor it while driving to see what the psi is when it starts acting up.

When you changed the sensors did you dump the learned memory in the ECM? I would have.
