Carburator spring on wrangler 1998 2.5 engine

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

1978 gmc sierra sbc 350.. problems starting its been sitting for a while. I replaced the mechanical fuel pump but still doesn't run. I can pour gas in the quadrajet carburator and it will turn over and run...


If it runs when you pour fuel in the carburetor, then the problem is that the engine is not receiving fuel. (by the way, be careful, the carburetor may back fire and cause a fire). Disconnect the fuel line from the carburetor and place the end of the line in a bucket, then turn the truck over to see if fuel is flowing. If it is a mechanical fuel pump it should pump fuel into the bucket when the battery turns over the engine. If you had a lot of debris pop out of the carburetor, it should be taken off and cleaned. You may have had a bird or something else try and build a nest in it.

Just bought a 2000 Jeep wrangler it starts fine and drives off....it dies randomly and won't start back after about 10 minutes fires right back up. ??? any ideas as to what is wrong with it.


The 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.

93 jeep wrangler,,turned it off and now want start,,got fire to plugs? help


If the check engine light does NOT come on when cranking, at the times when it won't start, and the relays are clicking and buzzing, then your ECU is in need of repair. The engine will only start after the check engine light comes on and the ecu is what controls that. ECU is likely going bad, causing the delayed start problem typical of early 90's jeeps. Reasonably priced repair or replacement services for your jeep ECU are available on ebay.

I lost you in chat and I can tell you that you need to clean the throttle body and set the choke on the throttle body, if it is carburated then you need to replace the float as it is allowing to much fuel into the system and flooding the engine the reason you are told to put your foot down all the wa is that is for clearing flooded engines. please contact me so I can help my e-mail is b123153h@yahoo.com and our programs did not wantto talk to each other.

Intermitent starting


sometimes the ais(automatic idle speed) valve gets loaded with
carbon. its an easy fix. you have to remove the throttle body
invert it and you will see the ais chamber and look in and see if it is
built up with soot. carb cleaner should work.if you can remove
the valve for better cleaning. peterjai
