Question about 1998 Jeep Wrangler
I was having problems getting the wrangler to start. It would turn over fine but won' t fire up. I was looking around the engine under the carburator and saw a spring dangling from a lever which could be the throttle lever(have no maual). The short straight end of the spring is attached to the lever and the longer end is not attached. I canot find where it should go. Any ideas? Thanks Bob
It hooks to the square bracket directly to the side or the of the cable clamp

following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any
electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.
The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.
