Has there been any recent work done? That mioght help, and wehn was the last time it had a major tune up.

Anyways, things to check.
1. Do you have any air leaks?, when you step on the brake (power brakes) the engine takes a big gulp of air, if you already have some sort of air leak, the engine is nopt going to able to balance the air fuel mixture. With the whole engine buttoned up tight, so that everything in where it is supposed to be, try spraying some carb cleaner on places where their is a possible leak. The headers (intake and exhaust) can be one of those places. Try doing this when the engine is cold to avoid any possible ingnitions from the heat of the header. If you hear the engine rev up when you spray the cleaner, then you have an air leak of some kind.
2. Check your timing, rotor cap and points for wear or just your timing being off.
3. Check the plugs for gap and wear as well as being wet or showing any kind of improper wear. You can find plenty of pictures and examples of improper wear online or in any haynes or chiltons manual.
4. Misture. There is a lot to explain here, but with more information we could rule this out, try the other things first unless your fermiliar with your carb and then we can talk more about it.

Please try to provide as much info about your vehicel as possible whne posting. Recent work done, engine, carb/injection, modifications, is it a Cali version.

Hope some of this leads you to your problem. Please post more info or let us know how it went if you get it fixed.

How do i adjust carb on 84 cj 7 it is running rich and has some black smoke


The first thing to do is make sure that the problem is not the choke butterfly. Make sure it is opening all the way because a partially open choke can mimic improper idle screw adjustment, letting it run rich. If the choke is good then you will find the idle adjustment screws at the front of your carb. They are under the float bowl almost touching the intake manifold. This is easy to screw up so be careful and take your time. Turn both screws equally, the same way and the same amount. Use 1/4 turns and try running the engine after each 1/4 turn. Rev the engine up 2 or 3 times and let it come back to idle.If it stalls then turn it up a bit so it doesn't. You may have to adjust your RPM if it idles to low at the throttle linkage. There will be a screw stop there for that purpose, turn it in to speed up and out to slow down. It's a trial and error exercise even for professionals so take your time. Hope this helps.

Jeep stalls


try doing the procedure below, should cure the problem.
Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
