Haven't seen any codes.

I fought and fought the passenger side door last year.....finally gave up.

Today I was a bit more persistent.

I've never put the windshield down, not on my CJ, YJ or will I with the TJ.

Did you check for codes with a scan tool or just by seeing if the light was on or not? Not all codes will turn on the CEL.

I've driven it a couple of times, since the panic subsided.

I just did a drive with the engine and cat cold. It does the same thing.

I was doing 30 and stepped on it, the RPM's climbed to about 3500, but the jeep seemed to bog instead of go. The tranny shifted the RPM's dropped down and the jeep accelerated to 55....if I stomped on the gas again it'd hit 4000 RPM's and stay there...no more speed, no more RPM's...letting off the gas would allow the RPM's to drop and the tranny to shift.

I could hear the "wooshing" sound, and it sounded as if it was coming from under the jeep.

I did the key trick to check for codes.....there were none. The odometer just said....done. I wish it would have said fixed.

I guess I'll have to find a scan tool.

It has nothing to do with the tranny as it does it in park @ 4000 rpm. Best I can describe it is when I push the gas to 4000 rpm it misses. I had a scan tool put on it....no codes there either.

O2 sensors or Cat dude. That's what it sounds like to me

If the engine misses it should set misfire codes.
To check the cats loosen the exhaust pipes at the manifold to kinda bypass the cats take it for a very short quick run and see if it runs better

At times I hear a slight rattle coming from below.....I'm going with the cat being bad. My dad listened to it and that's what he thought too.

I'll try and find out for sure tomorrow.

Bedliner? I sprayed the front of mine with the Duplicolor stuff. First can was faulty and I had to sand it a bit. Second can was fine, if you didn't like it you could spray it yellow probably.

Have no idea on your rpm issue, cat makes sense though. You should still be able to get that covered under warranty if that is what it is.

Time will tell. It's in the shop. I don't know if it's fuel filter related, cat related, something I don't know related. Maybe it's something as simple as a bad spark plug....

As of 5:12pm, I've heard nothing....tomorrow maybe.

I think the cat's have been ruled out. A new fuel filter is going in, and we'll see what that does, if anything.

It might be time to trade this puppy in for a Mustang....if I can't figure it out.

I highly doubt it's the fuel filter. How did they rule out the cats, plugs, and O2 sensors? My rig's perceived power output slow deteriorated when my downstream cat was getting worse. The day I cut that thing off was a great, great day. The thing ran like a raped ape.

Started with the O2 sensors, then completely unhooked the exhaust, eliminating the cats from the situation...supposedly, since the exhaust could only be pulled away from the engine an inch or two. Didn't run it long that way either, but it still did it. I'd rather put in a new fuel filter and find out it's not it, that put in new cats and find out it's not them.

If the filter does nothing it'll be back to the drawing board, and I'll be looking for a different mechanic.

This really pisses me off, it's enough to make me want to get rid of the whole damn jeep....seriously, I hate this.

Lol its rly not a big issue. Now if you had death wobble then it would be a different story. That is why my jeep has set in the driveway for 6 months and counting. Im tired of working on it and never seem to find the problem. Free gas driving the store truck doesnt seem to sway me fixing it either haha.
