no traction control light or can you feel traction control kick in?

Does your engine die?

If not check your transmission fluid level and see if there's a leak from the pan. Usually if it's low in fluid the torque converter is not catching right and it's slipping therefore causing it to bog at times and when it does catch it goes.

That's the cheapest and easiest check if that doesn't work we can try guiding you through the next steps

Re: Not Running Right...
Do we have a traction control light on our WJs? Or do you have a 2004 WK?
I had a similar problem some time ago, it was only always there and not once in a while. Driving around town all ok, but when accelerating on the highway there was just lack of power. Passing some other car was just a risky thing. After changing my fuel filter/pressure regulator the problem was solved. Problem could also be with the fuel pump or even with the TPS sensor. If you have the possibility to measure the pressure at the fuel rail, you will know more.

"Driving around town all ok, but when accelerating on the highway there was just lack of power." the tps sensor did it for me
