Step on gas, car cuts

Have a 93 wrangler, today something new started, every time i step on the gas, it almost dies, and then it picks its self back up then goes, then ill step on the gas again and it will do it again. I had my dad listen to it and he said " well its a old car what do you expect" but i dont think its supposed to do that. Lmao any ideas?

First thing, check every hose under the hood, it sounds like you have a vacuum leak. Pull each one off one at a time and inspect them, look for cracks, small holes, and make sure the hoses fit snug on the fittings.

Sounds like the symptoms of a partially clogged fuel filter. Naturally it could be something else - but checking the filter is free & easy.

you are sending this out to a lot of us old foggies what the heck is "Lmao any ideas?" Achronims are for you young kids. If you want an answer from an experienced old foggie make it so they can understand and give more info like what year and what engine 4 cyl. or 6, fuel injection or carburetor. In other words need more info to answer your question. It could be a fuel or ignition problem.
