    It has a plugged catalytic converter or fuel filter. Do the filter first, they're cheap.

I have a 97 jeep wrangler 2.5 with auto trans. The last year I have replaced the up stream 02 sensor 7 times. The jeep will run fine for a month or so then the check engine light will come on. Its always...


My used 97 jeep wrangler fuel / economy problems: My vacuum canister was completely full with crud (replace). also my coolant temp sensor was bad (twice replaced), effects fuel mixture. and O2 sensors were bad (effect fuel mixture) due to being fouled by spraying too much oil on spector air filter (now wipe off excess and let dry in sun), also carb cleaner appeared to foul O2 sensors (stopped using). Also sensor input/output signals were constantly being interrupted by battery sliding into computer harness, which I cured by placing a 1" spacer on rear battery clamp to push battery away from computer. After curing these problems my fuel economy went from 55-60 miles per 1/4 tank to 75-80+ miles per 1/4 tank.

Jeep wrangler is using too much gas


I have a 4cyl 97 jeep wrangler. My fuel economy went from 75-80 miles per 1/4 tank to 55-60 miles per 1/4 tank of gas. I traced this to a bad coolant temp sensor (replace twice), and fouled O2 sensors believed caused by my self by placing too much oil on spector air filter (now wipe off excess and let dry in sun), and using carb cleaner and or gas treatment (stopped using). fuel economy went back up to 75-85 miles per 1/4 tank. (also disruption of sensor input/output signals didn't help from battery sliding into computer wiring harness, which I cured by placing a 1" spacer on rear clamp to keep battery away from computer.)

My jeep has a hard time going past 55 mph. 4 cylinder. Any thoughts?


is it missing out, if so, i would check the condition of the spark plugs and wires, also check or replace your fuel filter and air cleaner if you haven't already done so.

I have 2002 jeep wrangler at speeds between 50 nad 55 mph I get a vibration in the the front steering. I changed the steering damper and had the tires rotaded and balanced and i still have the problem.


have the mounts checked on the control arms, alot of times the can bend slightly due to a "curb" check. Call a local 4X4 shop and tell them you are experiencing the "death shake" they should know what you are talking about. That was the problem on my 02 TJ, i had replaced everything when i noticed that the angle on the control arm looked a little off.
