Question Advice on my 98 jeep

Hi there.

I'm new to the forum and was hoping to get some advice. My Jeep is a 98 and over the past two years has had some issues with chugging or hesitating. I've taken it in and had new spark plugs, new fuel injectors, a tune up, etc. and each time it seems that it is fixed for a few weeks or a couple of months, but then the problems start again. I think the error code has usually been a misfire?

I've spent over $2K, but it still doesn't seem quite right. Just Friday they put in a new spark plug and then today the Check Gauges light went on. It usually has been the Check Engine light, but now something new.

Any ideas? It's got 143K miles and a new engine in 2005 and a new soft top and I love it and would like to keep it, but I'm not handy mechanically and not sure how long I can sustain the repair bills. What do you think?

Thanks for any thoughts!

I had a chuggung issue with a Camaro a while back, it wouldn't get up to speed, turns out it was the catalytic converter being clogged, had it replaced and no issues. Don't know if this would help, good luck in getting it fixed, that sucks having an ongoing issue and not knowing how to fix it.
