98 jeep wrangler 4.0 acceleration problem

I own a 1998 Jeep wrangler with the inline six 4.0. Latley my jeep has started to have problems with acceleration. As soon as i leave the house to go for a ride it feels like the motor is being choked. The only wierd thing is that as soon as the engine is warm, the problem disappears.

I have already tried the spark plug coil, spark plugs, fuel injector cleaner, and i have checked the air filter. Im in over my head on this one, please help, its time to go four wheelin

There are various reasons that this could happen:

  1. Your throttle body needs completely cleaned and decarbed
  2. The Throttle Position Sensor, IAC might be dirty
  3. o2 sensors might need replacing.

How to replace exhaust manifold gasket 1989 jeep wrangler 4.2


I also have an '89 Wrangler with a 4.2 liter inline six. I'm afraid that the spark plugs aren't on the same side as the manifolds. Mine is being a pain in the *** for me. The intake is lining up fine but the exhaust is off by about 1/4 of an inch in the way of a bolt. Was hoping for some solutions, left disappointed.

1998 jeep wrangler starting issues


Hi Dava224 i had the same problem with my 1989 CJ. when it was cold out i would pump the gas pedal 3-4 times before turning the ignition. it puts a small amount of fuel in the motor without stalling it out. it wont start as hard. another good idea is to keep some fuel stabalizer in the tank everytime you fill up. hope this helps

95 jeep wrangler: gauge indicates 0 oil pressure


Wire on oil sending unit may have fallen off or sensor itself may have gone bad. Check both. If engine has no tapping noises, likely it's not a pressure problem.
