Low end stutter.

Hey guys. Quick question. I accidentally let my battery die while working on my jeep. Now I've been having consistent hesitation in the motor after shifting gears. It hasn't happened before and I've checked everything I think it could be. Any ideas as to what it could be?

Did you check your battery? Dead Cell? Same thing happened to me. Listening to the radio for several hours. I let it run for 10-15 minutes afterwards to help charge the battery back up. The next morning I had to boost battery off. The battery ended up being junk. I guess the alternator could not keep the battery strong enough. If your running any accessories like lights radio etc... It will put more strain on the battery causing power loss.

I haven't checked my battery but would letting it die once cause a crap battery. This is the first it's happen and I haven't used lights or anything else. It doesn't make sense to my minor mechanical knowledge.

Power loss can be the battery or fuel. Hesitating when accelerating can be either. If you think your battery is good then I would go with fuel. It sucks because the fuel filter is in the tank.

I am in on the battery. Stock auto batteries are not designed to be run down below 12 VDC. They never fully recover if you do. Add a couple of years to the equation and then you are definitely due a new battery. Everything about the JKs are electronically controlled. EVERYTHING. The throttle as well.
