Questions & Answers

Q: Loss of power on initial acceleration?

I bought this Jeep Cherokee (I6 4.0L with 4WD) about 3 weeks ago and, for the first few days, it drove great. Now, if it sits for a few hours, it often (i.e. when I drive it but not when either mechanic drove it) loses power the first time I try to accelerate, typically at somewhere between 15 and 30 mph. After it does that for a couple of seconds, it drives perfectly. I've checked the engine codes (two bad O2 sensors), spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, replaced the coil pack and throttle position sensors (old ones were physically damaged), tested the exhaust pressure, and had a transmission shop check it out with no success
