Question about 1997 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

My Jeep wrangler wont go above 20mph

I recently changed the spark plugs and the wires about 1 day ago. Prior to that the car was running perfectly fine. Do you think i connected the wires incorrectly to the distrubuator cap? or the sparkplugs are not gaped correctly? I bought some bosh spark plugs they have like 4 teeth on top hard to explain im guessing they come pregap. Also, when i try driving the car it sounds like it wants to turn off when i hit the gas peddle but it doesnt turn off. My rpms are well below 1. so im guessing it threw my timing off?

Wont start after replacing spark plugs in 2006 jeep wrangler


Hi my name if Tom and I am here to help.

The most likely problem after changing plugs is that you got the wires to the wrong plugs. I am guessing.
Did you change one plug at a time or pull all the plugs and changed them as a group?

If you did not mix up the plug wires, I would need more info to help you further. I trust this info was of help. Do not hesitate to get in touch with me at your convenience.

you may need to change your fuel filter sounds like you have water in the line. you can put some gas treatment or octane booster in the tank. but make sure that the new wires are in the right sequence for the firing order.

Make sure your distruibutor rotor in turning while cranking engine, if it is timing belt ok, more then likely your not getting spark to spark plugs check your ignition coil, but more then likely it's going to be your ignition module.

On cold days the engine quits, after driving 1 mile


Distributor Ignition Pickup may be defective, these are sensitive to temp changes, they will cause a loss of spark..

Code scan: P0301 Cylinder 1 misfire detected


Code P0301 is a generic OBD Code for Misfire. It also indicates you have a misfire in the #1 Cylinder. I would start by checking the plug wire to make sure its clean and on all the way (at the coil as well). Then if that doesnt help I would pull the plug out and check the condition of the spark plug. hopefully this will give you some direction. Thanks for Using FixYa!

Sincerely,

JC

1989 Jeep Wrangler Standard wont start


You have to check if this is fuel or spark related. You HAVE to put a filter in the system or the fuel injectors will get clogged. Check for spark first. If you have a good spark at the plugs, then your problem may be fuel related. If uou don't have any spark, then the problem could be a bad crank sensor.
