Question about Jeep CJ5
Posted by Anonymous on
Did you check the dwell angle after you installed the points? You need to remember that dwell (point gap) effects timing, but timing doesn't effect dwell. You should also replace your condenser and make sure to clean (wire brush) where it mounts to the dist.

IT SOUND LIKE A BAD FUEL PUMP TO ME.

Check intake gasket and vecuum hoses near intake runner #4. To do this spray carb cleaner at parting line between manifold and block while engine is running. If leaking rpm will dramatically change. A leak will lean out that cyl and cause misfire

You should have a fuse & a relay. Check # 11 fuse it should be 15 amp.& may be for your fuel pump. Do you have owners manual by chance, or does cover of fuses have label?

SOURCE: car only running on 2 cylinders
Cyl 2 and 4 are probably run off the same ignition coil. I would start by checking for spart on those cylinders.
It is not likely a fuel problem if it is only effecting 2 cylinders.

Hello regenald_135: My name is Roger and I will help. It appears you have replaced most of the parts related to a misfire. Have you checked the compression in number two cylinder? Without the proper compression the cylinder will not fire. The compression should be (120 to 150)psi. But any thing less than (100)psi. and the cylinder will not fire. The cause of low compression could be valve or piston related.Having replaced all the parts that already I would strongly recommend the compression test as this will likely show the problem. One other place you might also check. Remove the distributor cap. Try to move the rotor side to side.If the rotor wobbles side to side the distributor shaft bushings are worn. Be movement I mean more then a few thousands of a inch. I have ran across this a couple of times. This usually presents as a out of time engine. But could be the early stage of distributor failure. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. This is my way of knowing the answer helped. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
