Low Speed Bucking
Whenever I start up my 1998 Wrangler Sport for a few hundred yards or so the Jeep bucks. It sort of like it isn't getting enough gas to keep it going. After a few minutes the Jeep is fine, could the engine be cold? What's the problem?
I would suggest letting it warm up a while. An engine with those miles requires more time for the oil to flow to all the necessary places to decrease friction. The warm up also thins the oil so that it flows faster. Sludge can also contribute to poor flow. You may want to try synthetic.
That's easier said than done. The fuel filter is part of the fuel pump/pressure regulator/filter/anti drainback/sending unit assembly. Around $200+ and inside the tank.
