06 tj engine troubles!

I have a 2006 tj with 124xx miles, when I accelerate it barely moves? when I rev it up it wont rev past 3k rpm? I checked the airbox and everything is good! Can someone lead me in the right direction please! Thanks

Have you checked to see if your cat(s) are clogged with disintegrated pieces?

Disconnect the mini cats from the exhaust manifold and look inside.

Should look like honeycomb. If melted or missing, it's restricting your exhaust.

Hopefully you got what you wanted/needed from a reputable, qualified shop and it all works out.

Go to rock auto and order both downstream O2 sensors too. Do you have tools/mechanical savvy? Not a difficult job, but not a quick one either. Just did this a month ago PM for tips if interested.
