Question about 2002 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

2002 TJ 4.0 shuts off at 65

My problem started with the check engine light blinking, then at 65 MPH it shut down. Would start right back up and drive fine, but would not get over 65 without shutting off. When I got home I unplugged then re-plugged my throttle sensor. Check engine light stayed on, but still won't run over 65. Is the problem as simple as it seems?

Try changing the fuel filter. Must be starving for fuel at higher speeds.

Go to nearest autoparts supplier and they usually will scan for codes free of charge, and point you in right direction of part(s) required to correct the problem . If your still not sure, write down the codes and get back to me/us.

I would recommend having the computer checked for trouble codes next. The codes will help point a mechanic in the right direction for what to test.

A lot of possible causes - have you checked for trouble codes (DTCs)? If no codes, given the age it could be in the fuel delivery system (for example, fuel pump stopping either due to an intermittent electrical problem at the ignition switch or in the wiring such as corroded connectors).

No....the rpms differ from engine to engine and from manufacturer to manufacturer. RPM's are always higher at higher speeds.

Engine shuts down on deceleration


Well 145K is alot of miles, catera's are not that reliable especially after 100K. It sounds like you could have multiple issues but take it to a mechanic asap before it becomes unfixable.
