Re: 96 XJ Hesitation when hot & cant rev

Just a guess but it sounds like an O2 sensor. I wouldn.'t assume the wiring for the sensor is OK. The rear sensor wire can cook on the exhaust,many have trouble with the wire holder.
The front sensor, more likely, could be a problem. Look closely behind the power steering bracket. It can be hard to see there, you have to figure out a way to inspect all the wiring.
O2 sensors are notorious for not setting a CEL code until they are completely dead.
