Question about 1990 Jeep Wagoneer Limited

1 Answer

Hello and all the best in 2009, I drive a 1989 jeep wagoneer limited and it recently began to leak fuel from the steel tubing and what looks like a filter located on top of the engine just back from the main fan belt. It looks like fuel is seeping, fast from the seam of the steel tubing and the filter thing or whatever it is, any ideas on a quick fix so I can get to a garage tomorrow without blowing up. Thanks in adavance, Powderhound in Whistler

    The fuel filter should be under the jeep, mounted in-line, attached to the frame near the fuel tank. I'm not sure what it is on top of the engine you are referring to-could it be the fuel rail for the injectors? It's possible someone added an aftermarket filter at some time. Is there someway to disconnect the steel tubing near the leak? If there is, you can slide a section of rubber gas line over leak area, and clamp at both ends (that is, if u have or can get rubber gas line and clamps!) So rcolBoURNe don't blow yourself up and become rcolBURNe, happy new year.

Put several wraps of black plastic tape around the leak than put a couple small hose clamps over the tape

1990 Jeep grand Wagoneer i ran out of gas,when i put gas in in the jeep the truck try to start but start draging then just did nothing,i try to jump it and steel nothing but just a clicking sound


by running out any debris in your tank will get sucked into your fuel pump. REplacing the fuel pump usually means removing the tank. You can try replacing the fuel filter first its much easier and cheaper. The filter is attached to your fuel line between the tank and the engine, usually in the frame. TAkes about 15 minutes to replace.

1989 jeep wagoneer will not crank. Motor turns over and there is fire on the plugs. changed the fuel pump and filter. (Pump was bad) Fuel delivery is not right.


replace the crankshaft poisition sensor at the bell housing on drivers side, must be done from under the truck, very hard to see and even harder to replace, but that will be the problem..

89 Wagoneer drives rough


The thing to do now is a fuel pressure test pump could be weak just a few pounds under the recamended pressure will do that weather its mechanical or electrical . Is there a filter in the carb. wear fuel fine hooks? If none of this is an issue at least you can eliminate fuel deliverly as the problem.

Hesitations and knocking sound


From your description i would say that you have lost/spun a rod bearing and have a rod "knocking" against the block.
I would stop driving the vehicle immediately.
if you are able to do it yourself i would pull the oil pan and look for pieces of bearing.

Loose steering wheel, 1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer (FSJ)


it sounds like all you need to do is as follows, remove the steering wheel and behind it inside the column you will find a couple of screws or bolts that hold the tilt steering assembly together, they have most likely come loose and just need to be retightened , I would recomend that when you have the bolts out that before you reinstall them you put on some kind of thread locker (ie) lock tite. this should solve the problem

Fuel leaking


If it's a 4.0 engine, the filter thing is the fuel pressure regulator (does it have a vacuum hose going to a fitting on the intake manifold?) Depending upon how much material (clean tubing) you have to work with the temporary"fix" is just about the same as the real repair. Cut the line, removing the failed part, and install a new piece of steel tubing, using crimp type unions (they have brass ferrules on both ends that seal permanently to tubing once they are tightened. Sometimes you need to remove a decent length to get to a straight clean area (unions are not recommended to be used on curved sections of tubing.
Or, if you can't do this, cut the tubing right over the leak, slip a piece of high pressure fuel line (rubber) over both ends and fasten with two clamps (made for fuel lines, not for water hose applications) Make sure that rubber hose extends at least one inch past the leaking area.That will get you to a shop! Check the regulator. it's doubtful that both the line and reg are leaking.
Good luck

1989 jeep grand wagoneer--no gas getting to carb.--


That may be right - no gas in the carb is likely a bad fuel pump, or a clogged fuel filter.
