Question RPM'S not responding. What can it be?

MY RPMS on my TJ RUBI have been acting up lately in the sense that they are not responding the way they are supposed to. When I start accelerating they do not move past 2 usually i would be able to take them up to 4+. I have manual transmission. Today was the worst ever. I have to take it in, but wanted to see if any one was familiar with the problem. Any suggestion would be great.

So is the engine sluggish as well? Or does it accelerate normallly up to 2000 rpms and then bog down? Did this start suddenly or was it a gradual thing?
When you have a choice, buy American.

I had to change my catalytic converter. Cost me a pretty penny. If it happens again I am just going to run with out it. The problem was the filter was clogged and was not letting air flow go through.

Glad you figured it out...I immediately thought clogged cat when I read this.

Did you pay a dealer to put an OEM one on? I bet that cost you an arm and a leg. You can get a universal fit much cheaper...installation is just a lil more time consuming cuz they gotta cut the old out and either weld/clamp a new one in.
