Question about 1985 Jeep CJ7

My jeep will not start all of a sudden. When gas

My jeep (1985 CJ7) will not start all of a sudden. When gas is poured directly into the carborator it starts. you have to keep your foot on the gas pedal or else it stalls out. It was garaged for about 4 years. We had it running for about a week, it ran rough and would stall when coming to a stop, not all the time though. Then it completly died and would not start. We cleaned the carborator and still no luck. HELP!

Check the fuel filter, and i would suggest replaceing the fuel in the tank. It only takes about a month for gas to start to deterioate and if it sat that ling there is probally some junk in the tank. witch probally caused the fuel filter to plug up.

Sound like either fuel or ignition. Have you replaced any fuel filters? I would check the condition of the distributor cap and wires as well. Moisture could be a factor.

Sounds like blow-by if I understand correctly. Do a compression test to see where you stand with your engine.

86 CJ7 will run but will not idle.


Clean the idle control valve. located just inside the hole where you remove the aircleaner duct work. use brake cleaner or carburator cleaner.run at about 1200 rpms and spry directly into the valve.
