Question about 1990 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

1990 jeep wrangler. runs good, then suddenly it shuts off with smell of gasoline. When rolling onto shoulder, it restarts and drives on. Last time it cut off, it would not restart itself. I turned off key and had to wait about 15 min. before it would restart. It will run, but is unpredictable. Don't know when it will smell of gasoline and stall again

Your fuel filter is probably plugged - change out the fuel filter. The location of the filter depends of which motor your truck has and the type of fuel injection system - a throttle body system typically has a fuel filter mounted into the throttle body whereas a multiport usually has the filter mounted to the frame rail, close to under the drivers seat. Determine which configuration you have and go buy the filter - this will help you to determine where it is and what it looks like.
Hope this helps!!

1995 jeep wrangler just stops running without warning.


A bad crank sensor will shut the jeep off suddenly, while driving down the road, then restart later and it repeats over and over until you replace it.

Startin and runnin problems


Most common failure is crank sensor. Before running out and buying one, I strongly recommend that you do some further testing. Any decent manual has instructions for testing systems. Also: test both running and after it dies. (while running everything may check out as good) If you have spark when not running, check fuel filter as well!
