1998 jeep wrangler running rough sputtering then almost stalling

My 1998 jeep wrangler will start sputtering and losing power when being driven. Then push in clutch and give it gas revs right up. Let the clutch out and sometimes it is fine for a while sometimes starts sputtering again. When this happens and you pull up to a stop the engine will almost seem like it will stall then it will recover. This problem is erratic it happens at all different speeds in all different gears and it comes and goes.

    had similar problem related to front oxygen sensor after a 20-30 min cool down, replace and fine. Although under certain driving conditions I was getting bucking and backfiring. Found out battery was sliding into computer wiring harness disrupting sensor input/output signals. Place 1" spacer on rear battery clamp to push battery forward and cured my problem.

Sounds like a ignition problem, try new cap rotor and wires and plugs if this does not fix your problem it is either your coil or distribitor

1998 jeep wrangler starting issues


Hi Dava224 i had the same problem with my 1989 CJ. when it was cold out i would pump the gas pedal 3-4 times before turning the ignition. it puts a small amount of fuel in the motor without stalling it out. it wont start as hard. another good idea is to keep some fuel stabalizer in the tank everytime you fill up. hope this helps

1992 Jeep Wrangler Loss of power


Check all your fuses make sure their good. Your fuel filter should be changed once a year. Or in worst case it might be your fuel pump. If it was a rough road it might have set off your emergency fuel shut off system. Check your owners manuel to find the lacation and reset button.

1999 Jeep wrangler runs rough


Check the gas, could be water in it or drive the car with a fuel pressure tester connected to it and watch to see if you lose pressure.
Normal pressure while driving is about 30 to 40 psi
