GoldenSahara00 I just wrote a big response and it deleted it... lol. I am gona check fluids andd stuff sat when i look at my rear axle.

I was mudding and do alot of hills today for about 3 hours in 95 degrees. the low reving was only for about 15 seconds after starting the jeep back up after I shut it off on the trail. idled really low then wouldnt go up even when i floored it, it wasnt even injecting gas it felt like.

GoldenSahara00 my exhaust is all effed up... haha. dont know how the cat is. problem is I had mud all through my radiator which was probably hurting the cooling, all over the engine and everything, was doing alot of hill climbs and slow stuff for about 3 hours, alot of 4 lo on the hills, and it was like 95 out. and it was after I would let it sit shut off for a few mins. either way it was getting hotter than I like. it would only do it maybe 20 seconds then once I got moving it was fine.

the not reving concerned me too. I started it up and it wouldnt go above like 500 rpms and it usually IDLEs at around 800... lol. its fine now though on the road drove to work and home and all that. was just for a few seconds.

Shelby427 Thinking maybe a sticking thermostat. The not reving has me a little concerned.

Heating up and no revs, poor idle, could be a cat going bad too.

That's a genius idea!
