jeep hesitation during acceleration

the vehicle is a 98 jeep grand cherokee laredo 6cyl 4.o.
ive have replaced pcm(2months old), tps,crankshaft sensor spark plug wires distubutor cap and coil. most parts were replace to try and correct a stalling issue which was fixed by the new pcm. fuel pressure was checked 2months ago by dealership and mechanic shop. current cel is p0318 (downstream o2 sensor) any ideals to what could cause the hesitation?

Start with fixing the downstream O2 sensor. Since it feeds info on the burn to the computer which then uses the two O2 sensor readings to adjust your mixture that would go a long way to getting mixture correct and should help the acceleration problem.

My o2 sensor wire was pulled down alittle bit by a branch from a down tree it had been rubbed down to wires,and had been arching on the drive shaft causing a shortage to the pcm that caused all my malfunctions until it was worn down and rapped around the drive shaft and thats when it died.I found the problem then i taped the wires up good and made sure it was secured behind the heat shield havnt had a problem with it sense
