compression low ?

I have a 92 wrangler. I just got a head job on it. And they said the compression is running all 95. Is that good? It has 138k on it. And its still running like wanted to stall when I give it gas. Then suddenly stalled and won't start now. Always something after the shop

Should be closer to 150 when hot. I would recheck what you had done if it won't start or have them call a tow truck and fixi it.

Cody, please fill out your vehicles profile as completely as possible.

Here's what I found on a quick search:

Last but not least TPS and O2 sensor. Try them in order. RR and I have the same 2.5TBI and its a little bit more of a pain to troubleshoot without the diagnostics
If it bogs down on throttle, I would check the above as Que stated first and then Search The Forums for TPS diagnostics, there are several very good posts to help you determine if the TPS is bad. What type and what tests you run depend upon Automatic or Manual trans.
