HOW TO FIX YOUR PROBLEM: replace the mass air flow sensor.... or first try cleaning the old one. theres a special cleaner for it- "mass air flow sensor cleaner". ive also heard you can soak the sensor filament tip (not the whole thing, but just the tip that looks like a lightbulb filament) in white vinegar for 8-10 hours and let it dry, allegedly the vinegar will eat away the buildup. cleaning or replacing that sensor should eliminate any hesitation, sputtering, or bogging down with the 4.0.... this is a common problem, and this is usually the culprit

Bogs when you floor it. No top end power at all can barely touch throttle. Cycling the key while driving brings back a little more power.

when hot it stalls out at light when press down on throttle, dies and will not start until about 1/2--1 hr. later. acts like it is flooding with fuel.

Manual trans, same issue. Not as bad in cooler and less humid weather. Removed weatherstrip on top of firewall to help airflow. I feel my leaking exhaust manifold is causing high under hood temps, somehow contributing to the problem.
