Question about 1988 Jeep Cherokee
I have a 1988 jeep cherokeet 4.0 it is bacfiring from the throttle body and is hard to start,turns over for a long time before starting,and it kind of chugs when driving and acts like it wants to die at a stop light.What do you think this could be?
Check your ignition wires, rotor and cap. Backfiring is caused by ignition misfire or worst case, a burned intake valve. Your distributor is locked in place so timing should not be an issue but the pickup inside the distributor may have become loose and then can cause this as well (but happens very rarely)
