Weird jump in RPMS in my 2.5L TJ. Bad Clutch?
I've been searching and searching but I can't seem to find any sort of thread on this already. So it would be great if anyone can help me :D

As of late I've been driving around and getting a weird drop in throttle when I step on the gas pedal. It doesn't happen all the time and it only drops for a half a second, just enough to agitate me and any passengers. More importantly, it makes wheeling up rocks as difficult as all hell -.-

I was thinking clutch? But I'm not really sure if a bad one would cause this problem. The only other option suggested to me was throttle position sensor. I have the brown dog motor mount lifts that have caused a little engine shake too, if that's of any merit in this situation.
So... I have no idea.

Any ideas? Similar issues? :confused:

Your title says weird jump in rpms and your post says weird drop in throttle. I'm not understanding what your symptoms are. Are you losing power while having a simultaneous increase in rpms? If the answer is yes, That could be a slipping clutch. If the clutch is letting go it could be caused by a couple of different things. The first thing I would look at is an oil leak because these clutches hold up pretty well unless they are really abused.
