Just the way it acted while idling, and having it bog down and die when I gassed it made me think fuel starvation for sure.
But then turning a corner two miles later and losing everything, and...

Would a bad CPS cause an ongoing issue or intermittent issue like mine? It’ll drive normal for awhile, then start bogging down and die like mentioned.

I can run the codes to see if there are any. I’m sure they’ll be quite a few since this was a Cherokee motor cobbled into the existing wiring…. Actually John, you helped me with quite a bit of that...

Fuel filter or fuel sending unit?

Yeah you’re in a pinch for sure. I’m not sure of other DMV’s, but I’d rather pull my fingernails out than deal with them on VIN issues.

I had a similar situation and it’s worked out for me. I...

Hey, it kills me to give up on stuff... I’m not just cheap, I like to figure out and fix issues on my own. I just think I was fighting a no win battle!
Hopefully the new assembly works.

And to add, I tried the bleed screw a couple times, and ended up with the pedal dropping to the floor. That’s when I decided I’d cursed enough and ordered the new assembly.

Good to know, thank you. It was a stock setup, so I’ll check the hose too. If it’s rubber, maybe the fact that it’s been sitting a lot lately along with long freezing temps could be a factor.
