Question about 1991 Jeep Cherokee Briarwood
When accelerating my jeep recently started going through spitting, sputtering and bucking like it has no power and wants to die, rpms jump up and down like crazy as well, once driving it does fairly well unless you need to accelerate quickly. Also, it is randomly not starting. If I drive somewhere sometimes it will not start, at this time sometimes I will hear the power kick on in the fuel pump when I turn the key other times I will hear nothing, but the lights and dash still work. It has new plugs and wires, battery is newer and alternator, and the issues just started recently all together. Any good ideas as to what this could be?
First (I"M starting to sound like a broken record on this) check the ground connections at both ends of the cable.(smaller body grounds as well) Make sure they are clean where they make contact with block and terminal post (not just on the outside.) Make sure hot wire is also clean and fastened correctly. Right now, we are trying to find out what it's not., Then, you can get to what it is.Often small stupid things can look like other larger problems.
