Yeah Que, still have a very hard start.

I haven't replaced the tps but I have replaced the O2 sensor.

No, I haven't touched the tps , never seen a code for it so I thought it was ok.
I might as well replace it and see what happens.

If the screws for your TPS are rusted like mine were, you will have a good time getting them out. I used a small ratcheting screwdriver if I remember correctly. I should have replaced the rusty screws but was in a hurry.

ok, unhooked the battery, replaced the TPS, hooked the battery back up and fired her up.
Still hard to start and still cutting out at 3000rpms.

Can you post a video of it cutting out? I want to see exactly what you are dealing with. Post up a link to the video.

did you check timing? it could be the timing is off that happened to me in a saturn and ended up bending most of the valves. but ill tell you one thing in my buddies 2.5 he was having the same sluggish problems and one night it wouldn't start. sounding like a fuel problem i banged on the tank and it started right up. after he took it home he had called me and said that it was running on full power again. my thoughts on that were theres was a lot pf debris and dirt in the sock of the fuel pump and when i banged on the tank with the hammer it shifted the dirt around away from the sock and let the pump suck up the correct amount of fuel again. so i would check your fuel pump sock to see if it is clogged up and if it is try and clean the tank out best as possible put a new sock on it and see what happens.

For a $90 diag charge a Jeep dealer will most likely be able to tell you exactly what is wrong with it in an hour or so.

Or you can keep throwing parts at it.

I just watched the video. It is a misfire at 3000 rpm. Have you done anything to the distributor before this started? That it's a spark timing issue for sure.

I did buy a kit that had a coil, distributor cap, rotor and plug wires. That's the only things I've done with that stuff.
