Exclamation Hesitation/Stall Problem

Hasn't happened to me in over two months or so, but yesterday I was on a ride home from a family members house and the old girl acted up again.....

THE PROBLEM: I was driving on a boulevard, speeds of 45-55mph, and had about a 1/4 tank of fuel...All of a sudden I had LOSS OF POWER-Jeep was still running, very rough and had zero throttle response....Put it in neutral and tried to rev engine-No response.....Got into a turning lane and shut her down for less than 5 seconds...started her back up right away-full response no issues....Got her to a gas station, filled her up becasue I thought my gas gauge may have been broken or off? I think i have the 19 gal. tank and put 13 gal. in to fill her up and went home with no other problems.....ANY IDEAS!!! HELP PLEASE

Probably something clogging the fuel that got cleared. If it happens again, then it could be lot of things that can cause it. TPS, CPS, fuel pump, injectors etc ... will need more specific information to figure out what is causing it.

Drive it around and see if it happens again. If it doesn't .. don't worry about it.

This is the 3rd or fourth time it's done it..its been awhile since the last occurence. Ive changed the CPS and cleaned and inspected the injectors...my guess is that its the fuel pump over heating possibly.

I am not a mechanic, I did just buy a yellow 2000 TJ.
it runs great then some times the check engine light comes on and it does the same thing as yours. I took it into autozone and they checked the light, it said check O2 sensor so I changed it Saturday morning and the Jeep has never ran better. I have no idea with your Jeep just wanted to put that out for you to think about.
I think this is a GREAT forum and really enjoy reading everybody's post
Thanks
Jim

I like to start with the cheap stuff first. sounds like water in the fuel if it happens when the tank is low. the pump could be getting hot, but thats the last thing I want to do is drop the tank. could check codes, and a good tune up and change the o2 sensor. some gas dry in the tank just in case you have some water in it. If that doesn't help then more testing to be done.
