Hi, I'm new to this site and need some help.
I have a 1998 jeep wrangler, 4.0 engine, 5 speed trans.
My problem is when I first take off it runs fine til 3rd or 4th gear then
Starts to Spit and sputter like it's running out of gas. If I push in the clutch and turn off the ignition then restart it and it runs fine. Any ideas what might be going on with it?

Any codes?
When was the last time you checked plugs, wires etc.
Fuel pressure?

No codes no check engine light. I read that it could be the MAPP sensor, got one put it on didn't help. Gonna put a duel filter on it next.

Don't play parts darts, you'll end up spending a lot just throwing random parts at it.

You can rent various diagnostics tools from AutoZone for free .

Does it ever spit and sputter at idle? If you crank the jeep and leave it sitting?
