Any codes being thrown? May be low fuel pressure too.

Tried blowing thru the return line to the tank and it seams as if it's blocked hooked a hose to the return line and out it in a bucket and now fuel pressure is at 33-35 at idle gonna try to see what I can find out to clear or replace the line

You don't need a code reader to get the codes. You just need to do the "key trick" and watch the CEL while counting the flashes.

I'm wondering if there is a vacuum leak somewhere. Since you stated the PO replaced a lot of sensors already, either the seals/gaskets may be leaking or a vacuum line broken or disconnected somewhere.

timing chain? bad/clogged injector? Could be many things. When my old xj did something like this, I took off the throttle body, removed all sensors and cleaned it up in carb dip, couple new gaskets and the problem vanished. Might have to take it to someone who knows their stuff before you dump a ton of money fixing stuff that isn't broken

How about the plugs?
If idle changes after warmup it could be faulty temp sensor. A vacuum leak should give you a faster idle.

How old is the o2 sensor?
