Found why Jeep was running bad

Last night I ask for help with my Jeep running bad when it warmed up. Thanks to all you guys who wrote to help me.
I had a engine diagnostic test run on it this morning and found out that two spark of the new spark plug wires were bad. I had just put a new set of Bosch wires on a week ago. Anyway had a new set of Borg Warner wires put on it today and it runs like new now. I don't know but I thought Bosch was better than that.

Re: Found why Jeep was running bad

I work for the "Wheel End Products" (hubs, rotors, corner modules, etc) division of Bosch and they preach quality on a continuous basis. We don't hesitate to scrap parts for minor defects. Sometimes even if it is within specs we will scrap a part because it looks bad. Most customers don't know crap about lateral runout, but they know if a part is pretty or not. I can't vouch for the plug wire guys but Bosch does make good products.

It is good to hear Bosch has a good quality controls, I had always had a good opinion of Bosch but this was a bad set of wires, two of the six wires were bad. Thanks for your post.
