Mine was the Crank Positioning sensor. No engine code? Located below your brake pedal where block and bell housing meet. Easy to replace. If thats the issue.

had a simular problem, and was directed to replacing the "Distributor Plate" It's inside the distributor where the points use to be, very easy to replace, and a comon problem.

Back in '77 I bought a brand new Dodge van with 318 engine and auto tranny.....10 miles from dealership the distributor shaft ate it's way upwards thru the cap..really, the whole shaft forced it's way up and destroyed the cap and rotor and yanked plug wires off.

I coasted into a parking spot in Kittery Maine right in front of a parts store. They sold my poor ass a new distributor cap and rotor and wires and lent me tools and timing light to install it all....got back to dealer just before closing time and they blew me off cause i was young and stupid and they didn't fix it under warranty.

This Jeep is the first Chrysler product I've owned since....No complaints

so did the OP have a CK engine light on? I'm have'n all sorts of idle and accelerating issues with my heep... it not even fun to drive anymore... It get vapor lock when its warm and I shut it down for a few mins than start back up to drive it. I'l start drive'n it and it will kill it self if I just keep give'n it gas but if I throw it in neutral and rev the crap outta it, it seems to blow that crap past and not do that one issue any more, any yal have that problem? my jeep is a 2.5L, 5speed
