Run 87 octane if you aren't already. Higher doesn't gain anything.

Change the plugs and wires (never a bad idea anyways). Also look into Seafoam motor treatment, if anything to give the components a good cleaning.

I went from getting 7-9 MPG to consistent 15-16 MPG because of the changes and removing the codes. My sensor was saying it was running lean, and told the CPU to adjust and run it rich, thus I was burning way more fuel than I needed. Not to mention how I didn't pass out from CO poisoning while driving is nothing short of a miracle. Now I have no issues and she runs like she has 45k instead of 145k. Check out the thread I started back when I had these same issues and the guys that posted then may shed some more light on your issue. Just don't judge that I mixed up labeling my issue from rich to lean. Haha. Good luck with the remedy! Hope this helped, if even a little bit.

I will def look into changing the wires since I already changed the plugs. I still have to find out what kind of sensors were put in at the shop. I did the same thing you did at first, which was to go to Autozone and get the Bosch O2's. I'll get some wires this weekend along with Seafoam cleaner and update on Monday. Thanks!!!

Wire will be included but you want the Jeep specific which will have the correct connector. Universal will just have bare leads

NTK is OE and has the wiring harness for plug-and-play install. Installed mine in less than five minutes, and I am no mechanic. Just make sure you have the correct engine and location selected on their website to ensure you get the right part number
