    You may need to have the carburator cleaned & rebuilt, or the timing & idle speed may be out of adjustment. Please clarify the exact problem & I will help you out. I also own an 87 Eagle.

Interchangeable rear amc eagle


Rear axles on all AMC Eagles interchange with each other, regardless of year. Jeep Cherokee (compact XJ models) will interchange, but the shock mounts are different - Jeep mounts must be cut and welded, at least on one side. Make sure the axle ratio is the same as the front axle ratio, or the same as the axle you're replacing.

I am looking for the manual for an 87 amc eagle wagon 4x4 for tranny related issues, I need this manual bad.


Go to faxonautoliterature. They carry dealer service manuals and have the manual you are looking for. As a matter of fact you can either get the manual for the whole car or one for the transmission only. I have used them before and had excellent service. Hope this helps.

Somewhere along the the line you may have a fuel blockage or a good dose of water in your fuel tank.Check the water in tank 1st.Add 1 litre of metholated spirits to every 20 litres of fuel.This will allow the water to break down and be burnt through the motor over time.Do this twice.If this does not work,there may be a glob of **** in the fuel tank that blocks the pickup.If this is the problem,the tank needs to be taken out and cleaned.I hope this is a start to get you back on the road.

"check engine" light keeps coming on, then car stalls. Help!


Sounds like fuel pump related. Check the pump pressure when the car is warm, also replace the fuel filter.

I have an 85 amc eagle, I cant get it to charge, it did not have an alternator when i bought it, i have a ford alternator on her now, but wont charge, does this car have the voltage regulator built in the...


you need to put a chevy alternator with a built in regulator on it.
You need a 3 wire alternator. Two wires go to the battery and one wire goes to anything connected to the ignition switch.
