I pressure washed the engine and now there is a hesitation in the engine. I have replaced the plugs, wires, distributer cap and still have the problem. Can anyone help me out???

I'd wait for the YJ/XJ guys to confirm but I suspect you killed your TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). They don't like water.

Another cause could be water in the distributor.
Pop the cap and have a look inside for water. Blow it with compressed air, lots of air, and then just a bit more for good luck.
Canadian Tire sells a spray designed to dry ignition/electronic parts and it does work. Another good addition to the Jeep toolbox.
