Question about 1991 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

I Have a 91 YJ 4L 6 cyl. My fuel consumption has dropped dramatically since about 2500km ago when I did a service. New oil and filter , fuel filter, serp belt, spark plugs, injector cleaner in tank, thermostat, K&N air filter, new temp sensor. I am getting about 80 to 100 km less per tank. I have also inspected the fuel lines and replaced the exhaust system and o2 sensor. Please help.

What did you do with the exhaust system? Back pressure on the exhaust can effect the fuel economy.

these jeeps did have a small problem with the tp sensor. i would also have the back pressure of the exhaust checked to see if you have a catalytic converter choked up.

SOURCE: 96 Jeep Cherokee RPM Surge While Driving

If the problem began before you changed the plugs that they are likely OK...Some engines "like" certain brand plugs better than others. You may have a weak ignition coil. Poor spark will generally show up at higher rpm's. Spark should be blue and have good "snap" to it and should easily bridge a 1/4" gap or better. If fuel was contaminated, it should show up at lower rpm's as well. System cleaners sometimes work but often are added far too late to do any good. (tank can hold up to a gallon of water without noticing it.) I use 3oz of acetone and one oz marvel oil per 10 gallons of fuel about once a month...cheaper and more effective than most cleaners. (and does not "melt" gaskets and seals as legend has it) The vehicle speed sensor can also give you problems but needs testing to determine if it's got any problems.
It's difficult to diagnose by remote control, but I hope you benefit form something here!

Check your EGR valve; if this is gummed up, it could be the cause of your Jeep not wanting to run.

Fuel consumption has dramatically increased, suddenly. Major tune up about 40,000 km ago. What may be the problem?

Hi. You did not mention any changes in the operation of the vehicle. If the vehicle is running the same as it always has I would look for a fuel leak, or maybe some one is taking fuel from your vehicle. Considering the cost of fuel these days that is a very real possability. Especially since you stated that the increase is a dramatic difference. Most mechanical fuel consumption changes occur gradually over time.
