Question about 1990 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

1991 Jeep Wrangler jerking and sputtering like it's out of gas

This usually happens in lower gears, like 2nd and third, but it will **** hard like it's about to run out of gas or IS out of gas, but then will drive normal for awhile until I get back down to lower speeds. Any suggestions? Fuel filter? Fuel injection cleaning maybe? Please let me know. Thanks for any and all answers I can get!

    I have a 1990 V6 with a new carb on it and after a few thousand miles on it, it started the same thing... Sputters like it is starving for gas. Changed the fuel filter and used some Seafoam in the carb and it still does it. Think I might need to rebuild the carb.

Hard shifting 1st to 2nd gear. And 4th gear wants to pop out have to hold in with shifter. 1991 Jeep Wrangler. Worse when cold.


Sounds like the trans needs to be rebuilt as it's been abused. The clutch may be dragging during shifts and not completly disingaging or a lasy driver does'nt pust the clutch in all the way. If the clutch isn't the problem the oil in the trans should be ATF and if someone put in 80-90 it'll do this but jumping out of high and the shifter isnt itting the floorboard as a bad trans mount or motor mount may let happen, The trans is damaged and a used unit is cheaper and quicker to get done. Rebuilding the trans with all the parts it may need cost more than your truck is worth

I have a 1991 jeep wrangler with a new fuel pump and relay.


Check spark and fuel pressure. One is failing and must determine which to proceed further.

Not catching 2nd gear


Check the level and condition of your tranny fluid.
Check the level with the car running, in park.
The fluid should be a pink or bright red color.
