Question about Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

94 Jeep Wrangler, 4 x 4 - a couple of weeks ago having trouble turning over to start. Engine light came on a few times over that period then no problems since. This morning I got to work (smelling a strong gas smell) and parked and smelled from in back of jeep. My friend arrived 5 minutes later and she told me she smelled a very strong gas smell. I looked under the jeep and see a few spots but they were dry (on driveway). I do not see any physical live drips coming out but have not gotten under the vehicle. Do you have any ideas before I get it to a garage?

    Thanks. I will have my husband check out tonight. Is it okay to drive home from work without catching on fire?

You need to inspect the fuel tank, pipes and hoses for leaks! It is necessary to raise the vehicle. Also check the fuel system for leaks engine idling! Pay attention at fuel leaks in order to prevent any fire!

94 wrangler dies in gear

You don't need a scanner. If you cycle the key off and on 5 times, the codes will start flashing. Here is a link to jeeps and their trouble codes. There aren't that many in the older OBD-1 systems.

If you have no trouble codes, check fuel pressure. Multiport injection is high pressure, above 40psi, but Jeep would have specs.

Check to make sure the check engine light is coming on, on the dash, when you turn the ignition switch on. If it is not coming on, try leaving the ignition on for a few minutes to see if that light does come on and the jeep starts then. If so, then your ecu computer is in need of repair.

94 wrangler 4.0 fuel pump wont turn on

If your check engine light does not illuminate when you turn the ignition on then your jeep ecu is in need of repair. The check engine light has to be on for the fuel pump to get power. Try leaving the ignition key in the on position for a few minutes to see if the check engine light does eventually come on and if the fuel pump starts to work then.

Sounds like something in the engine "froze" or stuck Unhook the battery and try turning the engine with a wrench/rachet both ways. Check the timing belt, if broken the pistons will come up and hit the valves then stop everything from turning. Is one of the pullies stuck? Take off the serpentine belt and check all pullies to see if they turn.

Jeep shudders and brake lights flicker as I turn ignition off.

It sounds like the engine is diesiling -- this is usually caused by incorrect ignition timing and/or buildup of carbon on the pistons/valves. Also, lower octane gas can contribute to this.

Sounds like it needs a tune-up.
