    Jerking at ~3500 RPM, ´99 4.0

    Hi guys hope you're doing well. I would like to ask for your advice... I explain...

    I have a '99 TJ with 4.0 and auto transmission... it has 105K on the odometer and about 4k since rebuild. My jeep is kinda my DD and runs about 40 miles a day, part in the city and part in highway... recently while I tried to pass a car on the highway I had to rev the engine reaching about 3400-3600 rpms and in this range I felt the engine like jerking and wouldn't go higher on rpm band... also, don't know if it is related but there is a point where even pushing the accel pedal to the floor you don't see any power from the engine (lack of power). It starts well w/o issues and idles ok with minimal variations...

    Thinking in a possible low pressure fuel pump I already measured with a gauge and I have 45psi steady, even under acceleration (no load) so I think it is not related to the pump.

    I have no clue were to find... and, I don't know if the job done on the rebuild has something to do, timing or something like that... Guys, any advice on were to look to find the problem?

    Worth to mention that I have new header, new cat, new O2 sensors (NGK), new TPS (OEM), new spark plug, hi-power coil (D.U.I), wires, cables and distributor rotor cap, new fuel pump.


    Thanks

    Is it not accelerating or is the trans not dropping down a gear when you get on it? Check your kickdown cable and adjust it.
    Otherwise back to beginning. Coil, plugs, fuel.

    I have a 3 speed transmission, so... on third when pushing down the accel pedal it does the downshift and reaching 3400 it starts jerking... but also it does it when in 3rd gear... so, don't think is related to the transmission.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
