Have you tried checking the springs on the inside of the distributor.Sometimes they get stretched and causes the timing to run sporatically. An easy way to check is to look at your tach and see if its fluctuating while idling.

Check to see if you have a MAF sesnor on the air intake. If yes, clean the exposed MAF sensor wires (inside) with spray carb cleaner. Do not touch the heated wires though, just spray several times. It will fix a lean running condition.

1987 jeep wrangle will not start or run


Uncouple the fuel line coming from the pump at the carburetor, place a clean can under the line, and have someone operate the starter--you should have fuel shoot from the line in spurts as the engine turns. If it does, then the entry port on the carburetor is plugged. Remove the float assembly and pull out the float needle valve. Hook the fuel line back to the carburetor and try the starter again, there should be fuel pumping into the float bowl. If not, check to see if there is a filter on the fuel inlet path that may be plugged. If no filter, remove the float needle seat to see if something is blocking the fuel passage. If all else fails, use compressed air to blow backwards through the needle seat (remove the fuel line again). Hope some of this helps!

The front axle connects 4wd by vacuum. check the vacuum hoses that run to the actuator. Pay close attention to the vacuum hoses running underneath the battery as battery acid can eat thru those hose easily. Good Luck.
