Re: v8 stutters at high RPM??
You should check the wires for resistance. i believe an acceptable ohms reading should be 5,000-10,000 ohms per foot, just checked a manual. If they are resistor plug wires, these numbers won't work, but definitely give it a try if you have an ohmeter available. Other applicable tests might be to check the pickup coil, or the ignition control module. Does the Jeep die from the stumble? or keep bitterly struggling on?
