87 wrangler loosing acceleration

So my situation is, While i drive within the first 5-10 minutes my jeep begins to loose acceleration. I cant drive it on the freeway anymore because i cant get it past 50 also. Seems when i drive it it starts off fine and once i hit maybe 20 rpm i feel the car loose acceleratoin. this happens on every gear. It makes a bubbly popping sound when i accelerate. Also my rpm meter has been going crazy. while im in nutral on a red light it jumps to 40, 70, 30, 50 rpm.

Please Jeep people help me with my situation. I want to be able to fix my car before school starts

Ive had the same problem, I changed the fuel filter, spark pluges, plug wires, distributer cap and rotor button, and it fixed mine. Before I also ran seafoam injector cleaner in it for a while, it would fix it for a little while.
