Question about 1998 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

My 91 wrangler will idle just fine and drive fine for the most part but it seems to be after about 15 min. of driving it will cut out on me and then it will pick back up sometimes...sometimes i have to push clutch in and rev the engine then try driving again. its even worse when pulling steep hill. but it only does this sometimes. its a 4 banger with manual trans. i have changed plugs and wires and distributor cap and fuel filter. i dont think it is out of time because it doesnt do until it warms up. any help would be great thanks.

Replace the coil pickup located in the distributor under the rotor-they are common problems, lots of people who off-road with jeeps carry an extra because they do this.

I am hoping that some of you jeep brainiacs out there can help with a suggestion of the problem with my 1992 Jeep Wrangler 4.0 hi-output. Symptoms: backfire from time to time....cuts off when driving, cuts...


i would recommend you connect a fuel pressure gauge to the engine fuel rail port and watch the fuel pressure as you drive it note fuel pressure should be between 31 and 39 psi and stay there while vehicle is being driven. if it drops check the wiring to the pump in many cases the pump connector is burned and losses connnection. also try watching the egr see if its diaphragm keeps surging try disconnecting the vacuum hose to it see it any change is noticed, common problem 4.0 engines of that year EGR's cost about 90 dollars but help stalling and emissions problems greatly.

I remember the "Parts Replace" routine all too well from my truck. It's probably the fuel filter needing to be changed, clogging up and clogging the flow.

I have a 1999 grand jeep it cut off when im


I just had this problem on my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Once the engine got warm, after about 15 to 20 minutes, the car would just die at random times, sometimes when doing 40 mph and sometimes at idle.

I ended up changing the Crankshaft Position Sensor and it cleared the issue.
