I would be really careful with doing this repair as this is very dangerous. You need to relieve the fuel pressure by pulling the fuel pump fuse and starting the truck. Drain the tank with a siphon pump. Remove any exhaust or other parts that are in the way, loosen the straps and support the tank with a floor jack and a block of wood. There are several hoses, and a few wire connectors to disconnect and you may want to replace those hoses while you're down there. Once you put the new tank in, reconnect the electrical and hoses, raise the tank and strap it back up. Put anything else back together you took off the truck.
Personally, I would take this in to get fixed as this is dangerous work (I did mention that). I you do this anyway, use your head and buy a proper container to hold the gas in , as well as jackstands and a class "B" fire extinguisher. Disconnect the battery and don't smoke or use a drop light under the car, and I will not accept responsibility for this.

here is the truth.
  1. check all fuses first, (using a meter, no guessing)
  2. check fuel pressure, ah 0psi cranking,
  3. Check engine light must glow key or PCM is dead. (fuses)
  4. I check voltage at fuel pump relay output, its 0v cranking
  5. bad relay or PCM sees no spark.
  6. got 12v there, but not at pump cranking, bad wire .connector on way to pump.
  7. if 12vdc at actual pump and dead pump that is a bad pump. (0psi pressure)

I just recently replaced the spark plugs and wires on my 97 jeep wrangler, and the gas millege seems to have gotton a whole lot worse. What do you think could be wrong with it?


I would check to see if the fuel filter is clogged. You may have a gas leak. Your fuel injectors may be leaking as well. Make sure the tires are at correct inflation. If they are low, you will use more gas. You can also drop a fuel injector cleaner into the gas tank to see if that will help.

I have a 1999 wrangler and it tops out at 55 miles per hour but it doesnt mis and runs great around town


Top speed on a wrangler is typically about 15 miles faster than what you are getting. Check the air pressure, air filter, spark plugs and fuel filter. If all of these are good your carbeurator may be partially blocked. Begin with a fuel additive that will clean your carbeurator. I have had success with a product called seafoam which you add to your gas tank at a rate of one ounce per gallon of fuel. Use it for a couple of fuel tanks full of gas.

What type of transmission do i have?


Your Wrangler is a YJ and the model is an "S". A Wrangler manufactured in 1987 through 1995 are all YJ's and then from 1997 through 2006 are all TJ's. The new Wrangler models are dubbed JK's.
