Engine Sputters at 2500rpms
Ok, today the engine started sputtering when I hit 2500rpms. It is almost like I am hitting some sort of rev limiter. When I down shift at speed to get the RPMs above 2500 the gas pedal seems to have no affect until the rpms drop back down to 2500 and then the sputtering starts again. The engine acts completely normal below 2500. Also the check engine light is on. All other gauges are normal. All Fluids are normal.

The only thing I have an issue with right now is the Clutch Interrupt is just about shot and sometime I have to put it in 4 low to start it.

Any thoughts on what is causing the sputtering at 2500rpms.

More info. I took a drive at lunch and the sputter at 2500rpms has stopped by my engine block light is still on.

From another forum the TPS was suggested as a possible point of issue.

Hey there, I have the same problem. Did you ever figure out what it was?

I never did find out what was the cause. It never happened after that incident. After taking it in to Jeep, they only stated that there was a TSB for it and did a flash. Oh well. As long as it does not happen again, I won't worry about it.
