1989 jeep wrangler starts jumping and backfiring

Start with the basics...meaning check the spark plug wires and spark plugs. While under the hood, inspect all hoses for a vacuum leak(s). Then turn the ignition key on-off-on-off- on...leave in the on position and write down the number of flashes the check engine light indicates....2 flashes = #2....pause.....3 flashes = #3.
Let start from here. Are you able to perform engine repairs or diagnostics???

Sounds like the clutch is sticking. You may be able to free it off. Bike on centre stand, rear wheel off the ground, run engine, front brake hard on, pull in clutch and put in gear. Apply rear brake. May work,may not. Be careful to keep rear wheel off the ground.

Yamaha XJ600 diversion starter motor problem

sound like your starter gear might be missing a tooth or some other king of damage, this shouldnt be a costly repair, but I wouldnt ride too much as it is, if there is a chunk of the starter gear in the transmission, this could cause much damage and be very costly
