Hello Everyone,

I have a 98 Jeep Sahara with 133,000 miles. I'm starting to have some problems. I have a rough idle and it bucks when you first start out driving. Feels like its not getting enough gas, the idle sometimes drops low but never dies. I had the catalytic convertor changed because it was broken, hoping that would solve the problem, no go. I have reading many posts on this site trying to figure out the problem. Some people are recommending changing the O2 sensor (upper or lower?), the MAP senor and the throttle position sensor. Any suggestions would be greatly accepted, I'm getting frustrated. Did I happen to mention it has the death wobble as well.

Thanks

Not sure if you have a "check engine" light or not. Read post 5 by nicholas-eric on the attached and see if it give you a code...might point you in a better direction: https://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/dash-light-on-6446.html
