You better check the wires going to the plugs, is sounds like you may have got them switched aroung. Make sure you have the proper firing order it should be stamped on the top of the intake

Rough running


Computers aren't ALWAYS correct. If a code wasn't cleared after the original problem, it will read the same codes off to the diagnostic. I would remove the wire connector to each injector while it's running. If one of them makes no difference THAT is your culprit. Let me know please!

97 TJ 2.5 WILL NOT GO OVER 60 MPH AND RUNS FINE.


You may need to replace the fuel filter. Have you checked to see if maybe the exhaust system is plugged? To check the exhaust have someone rev the engine while you feel the exhaust coming out of the tail pipe. You should be able to feel quite abit of exhaust from 1 1/2 to 2 feet away when engine is reved to say 3000 rpm. If you can't feel the exhaust then disconnect the exhaust pipe in front of the converter and drive the car. It will be a little bit loud but you will know if the exhaust is plugged or not. If it goes faster than before then it is plugged. Hope this helps.

97 jeep wrangler starts then stops right away, I can give it gas and get the rpms up then it just stops. I have already replaced the spark plugs, fuel injectors the wires and the rotor cap and rotor. Even...


I had the same problem with my 1997 Wrangler. I seem to of solved this by turning the ignition to off then depressing the lock on the immobilizer. Then waited for about 10-15 seconds after the red light on the dash quit blinking fast . Then I hit the unlock on the immobilizer and the Jeep started and ran ok. I guess the immobilizer is the culprit and it doesn't unlock initially
