Jeep Problem - Help Requested

Well I've got a problem that has been around for the last week or so. Its a 98 4.0. Randomly my jeep will loose power and regain it very quickly causing my jeep to "hop" at low speeds, keep in mind its a manual. When it does this I generally pull off to the shoulder. My jeep idle will go down to about 400 rpm and get rough, sometimes it will die, sometimes it will regain to about 900-1000. The problem comes and goes but seems to have gotten worse. Only had the jeep for a week.

The check engine light was on for the 2nd o2 sensor, replaced it, cleared code, problem still persists. I'm afraid its a fuel pump, hopefully not.
Any thoughts? Thanks

When the Jeep does die, it always starts right back up. I know on previous jeeps they cranked for a little bit before starting up. This one always fires right up.

My 03 was doing the same thing and I cleaned my pap. When it gets dirty it sends the wrong air mixture to the computer.

Any idea how to remove and clean the PAP? What does PAP stand for. Thanks

Sorry I ment the map sensor. It is on the engine side of

your throttle body. Take the air intake tube off of your throttle body. Once you do that you will see a cavity ln it. The map has a brass nipple in that cavity. 2 screws hold it in place, remove them and clean the map. I used electronics cleaner. Did it 7 months ago still runs great

Cleaned the MAS up and didn't get a result. Not sure how exactly it is supposed to be cleaned but I tried.
