5th Gear at 65 Mph

I own a 1997 Jeep Wrangler, unforuntely, whenever I travel
on the high way and shift the vehicle into 5th gear the vehicle will begin to stall as if it is trying to shut down, however when I decrease the speed of the vehicle [.i.e. drive it around 55 or 50 mph] the vehicle seems to drive ok without any problems. Is this a transmission problem or a fuel pump issue I just can't figure it out...brown291

Could be fuel, does it do it any other time than in 5th gear?

It could also be a restricted exhaust.

Mine was doing this & I took the vacuum line off the EGR valve & plugged it with a screw.

Stopped the wheezing, so I left it plugged since the replacement is $80.00!
