SOURCE: 1992 jeep wrangler with faulty acceleration. It

It is possibly the O2 sensor. I had some issues with early 90's 4.0 liters where the O2 sensor would stick rich under heavy acceleration and would cause it to lean out and bog down. It felt like a rochester four barrel flat spot on an old chevy. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: 95 jeep wrangler splutters, jerks, backfires during acceleration

The ECU controls all of that. When they start to go bad they do very strange things that are hard to diagnose. They run about $300 bucks of you do it yourself. They are simple to do. Shop around because it is an electrical component and many places wont warranty them but some places do if your lucky you can find one. I also would not rule out your timing or distributor. I dont know you or what you have checked but could be the rotor or could be carbon tracking inside the distributor. Even the slightest crack in the cap can mess everthing up.

"To adjust the float drop, hold the air horn in the upright position and measure the distance between the top of the float, at the extreme outer end, and the air horn casting. The measurement should be 11/4 in. (31.75mm) to 1973, 13/8 in. (35mm) 1974-78. Adjust by bending the tab at the rear of the float lever."

My 87 wrangler runs rich, idles rough, runs rough. guy put on an electric fuel pump. original carb. he said it needed a fuel pressure regulator. is he right?


sounds like it is flooding the carb, by putting a fuel pressure reg on it it will lower the pressure at the carb and stop overriding the float,needle and seat.

Need adjustments for 88 model carter 2 barrel carburator. fits 4.2 jeep


To set carb adjustment, first set timing correctly, then put both a vacuum gauge and tach on the engine. adjust one idle screw to highest vacuum reading and highest tach reading, then do the other one. go back to the first and re-adjust again, then the other. I find that if you have a mechanical screw or a solenoid that holds idle speed on the linkage, turn them back so that engine is idling at the lowest possible rpm without stalling before making adjustments, then when finished, bring idle rpm up to recommended rpm using those. On an older carb, usually the idle screw covers have already been removed. If not, you need to remove them before you begin, usually best done with carb on a bench.

Front end wobble at 50 mph or when I hit a bump or pot hole in my 2005 Wrangler


Your tie rod nut needs tightning, the extra play causes the front end to vibrate or wobble your vehicle and sterring wheel.

look under the car where your steering wheel gear box connects to the tie rod, see if the nut and carter key have slop in it.

if so, take the carter key out and tighten the nut and then replace the carter key as it was.

the test it on some bumps and potholes.

Most of the vacum hoses were gone or ports on carb. were plugged.Need a diagarm of were the hoses go on a 1983 Jeep CJ7 with a 258 inline six with a 2 barrel Carter carb.


Most vacuum hoses are colour coded nowaday, not sure about your one, so look carefully at the end of each hose for coloured dots or lines that should line up with the ports also

Identificacion del carburador


Open the air filter and while the jeep is running place ur hand on the throttle very carefully, then in the other hand spray in STP CARB CLEANER. one spray then throttle up the carb so the engine keeps running.

Spray Again the carb and pull the throttle to high and back down after each spray.

4 times is enough.

1967 barracuda carb backfires do I adjust screws in or out?


I would check the float level first if you are going to adjust the carb., carters like to flood and if you check your spark plugs you can tell if your running rich. The other adjustment you will make with a simple vacuum gauge.You should probally check distributor points,and timing as well. More info would help, like is it back firing up the carb or out the exhaust or when accelerrating or decelerating.
