Question about 1987 Jeep Wrangler
1987 2.5L amc, replaced tank and fuel pump. After $1000 dollar mechanic bill still doesn't run. Fires right up each time you turn the key but dies after 1 or 2 seconds. Found that if you have a charged battery and disconnect the alternator the jeep will run. Mechanic says he's tried everything and gave up.
When you take alternator out of play. the vehicle runs. i would be replacing the alt. these units are complex containing modules, regulators that can give you erratic problems, but i think u answered your own question alternator
ps. good mechanic wont leave you stranded
