Question about 1999 Jeep Wrangler
I just bought a 1999 wrangler 5 spd 4 cyl. completely stock. 145000 miles. not taken good care of by previous owner. 9 times out of 10 my gauges wont work (tach, fuel, temp etc.) and my radio wont work. The heater has never worked since ive had it. sometimes if I honk the horn everything comes on but its been 3 days now with me not knowing how much gas I have AND no tunes on the way to work. ALSO I went 4x4ing today and went though a huge mud puddle and my jeep just died. the water was only about 4 inches deep. I tried cranking it over but it made this backfire sound. it would crank and crank and crank but not turnover. it sounded like it wanted to turn over but couldnt quite do it. sputtering basically. So I had $100 to get it towed home. The weird thing was I thought it had overheated so i pulled off the radiator cap and the water was COLD! Not to mention if I drive over 55 mph the whole Jeep rattles badly. good thing I only paid $800 for it. What is wrong with my Jeep? Other than that stuff it runs like a champ. No tranny/clutch/motor probs at all. no leaks no strange noises. Anyone dare to tackle this beast of a question? I cant afford to pay a mechanic $50,000 to fix my Jeep. Thanks!
Check all bat. conn. especially the grounds. give it a good t-up plugs cap rotor wires air& fuel filters the next time stalls out hold gas pedal to floor don't pump it.
