Question about 1990 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

Jeep stops while driving

My son has a 1990 Jeep Wrangler and while driving it will just stop. He has changed the fuel filter, fuel pump and dropped the gas tank and cleaned it out thinking he may have trash in the fuel. Still while he is driving the jeep will stop. He can restar it after a few minutes. He is stumped. Someone told him to replace the ECU. He also needs to know what the ECU does before he spends anymore money on something that will not fix the problem. Help. Thanks

Ecu is the computer for the car. if he haves a engine light on have him go to a auto parts store to get tested. have him make sure the oil level is not to low this could make it die out on him.

2002 jeep wrangler oil pressure gauge drops


When the gauge is at 0, is there any noise from the engine (tick, knock etc?) I would have someone put a mechanical gauge on there and read true pressure.Your driving pressure seems OK but if the low number is "real" something is wrong!

1996 Jeep Cherokee 4.0, 2w drive engine just stops running


Scan the computer for fault codes. Check that fuel filter is not obstructed. (if old, just change it) Most common problem is the crank sensor but do not just start swapping parts: it can cost a ton of $ and not cure anything!!
