Losing power
Having problem with jeep losing horse power once it warms up. Gets a burning smell. Any ideas on what could cause this? It's fine after its been sitting awhile

just replaced mine. Had exact same problems. Loss of power and a nasty burning smell.

took mine to a shop. they charged $150 for the part and labor. Just throwing that out there.

That's a lot cheaper than what I got charged for my truck lol
