She got pissy
 
I changed my plugs and wires this evening. I went with factory replacement wires, and champion platnium tipped plugs for the 97 4 banger. Put everything in, started it up, ran great. Shut it off, did a few other things, hopped in dropped it in drive and off I went, then she got pissy. It felt like she was misfiring bad. Got out on the highway, couldnt get up over 45-50. Came back, and pulled the plugs, and threw the old ones back in, after that she ran fine. So the moral of the story i guess is that the 2.5 4cyl does NOT like single plat. tipped plugs.


I also noticed that either a sensor came unplugged, or i found a plug that goes to nothing. For the life of me i couldnt find where it went. The jeep was also throwing a check engine light. Ill take a picture when its light out again and see if you guys can help with the sensor. Then off to advance auto parts to get the code read (if its not the sensor), and for some new copper plugs.

Did everything you did but used a standard Champion plug --correctly gapped-- and it runs great.Also did new cap and rotor.Went to AutoZone.The wires were Bosche.

Alrighty, heres the plug. It comes off the main harness on the firewall, its even got a little plastic screw clip deal so it should be attached to something else. For the life of me last night i could not figure out where it plugged into, or if it goes into anything.

I had the same problem with my 4.0. I started it up after changing all the plugs and the idle was lumpy in a bad way and the check engine light was on. I checked the spark plug wires, air filter, everything. It continued idling funny. I checked the diagnostic port and it turned out one of the new spark plugs was bad. I changed the plug and all is great now. You could probably go to autozone and get them to check it for you.

Got the codes read today, it was a p0300,...01,...02...03...04. Misfired deteced in all four cylinders. Runs great again with old plugs back in, they were just champion coppers. Got some of them, threw them in now were good to go again. Im guess that plug doesnt have a job?
