Need some help

So I just got a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited given to me by family, I was wondering if any one could help me. It runs funny but when it's at a idle it idles just fine but soon as you give it gas or put it into gear it spits and sputters. Any idea of what it could be?

Start with something simple...how does your air filter look?

Air filter looks good. My uncle has had it in a few shops and no one seems to know what is wrong with it, he has changed two or three sensors, spark plugs, coil packs had the compression checked in the engine.

OK, well you should tell us specifically what's already been done, or we're wasting our time guessing. "Changed 2 or 3 sensors" doesn't help. Which sensors?
What engine does you Jeep have? Are there malfunction codes stored in the computer and what are those codes? If it's been in several shops, someone has plugged into it by now to retrieve those codes. A good shop/tech would have documented that info.
Right now, we might as well be throwing darts at a chart. We don't have enough info on what you have and what's been done so far.

I get what your saying and I completely understand. I'm a novice when it comes to fixing cars I can do the basics. I will get more information on what has been done to it and I will get back. Also it has the 4.7 in it

TPS was changed? Did they adjust it properly?
Watch part 1 and part 2


Do you know what was good about the good old days? I wasn't good, And I wasn't old!

Senators and Congressman should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers so we could identify their corporate sponsors....
