Hi I've got a 2000 DJ with a 4.0 I purchased and has some issues. It's been sitting about 4-5 years. I know ...I know. Lol. So I get a cam sensor code so I replace the cam sensor but still idles rough after 1-1.5 min of running. Has a new crank sensor also. Does this sound like a fuel prob? It has good throttle response and skip goes away with any increase in throttle. Any guesses on where the issue might lie?

Hello and Welcome to the forum. Are the sensors mopar brand? Or just cheap part store replacements? If it has sat for 5 years, I would think a lot of junk in the fuel tank. With good throttle and high rpm response, the fuel pump should be fine. When you change sensors, The ECM has to relearn it's range. It's usually best if you disconnect the battery cables, and touch them together for about 10-15 seconds. This will drain the capacitors in the ECM and let it relearn all the sensors, It takes about 20-30 minutes of driving. then everything should be smooth.
