I have a 1990 jeep wrangler 4 banger 2.5l manual tranny She runs and starts fine but I can only drive about 1 mile before it starts losing power. It gets to the point where I'll be in first gear trying to...


do a 60k tune up first, all below assumes you did, spark parts, filters. dah?
first off the engine EFI runs a map sensor, (called speed density system)
so that means if the engine can pump air (compression tests PASS)

the MAP see that, air flow (calcs) and matches air with proper fuel.
1990 is a vary bad year, it has the horrid, Renix french pos EFI system. (owned 2, can taLK days on this ecu FROM H3LL)

but there is no CEL lamp, nor any scan tool , that will work here.
(unless you can find a working DRB tool, ) NO FLASH CODES !!!
above poster never seen RENIX, so.. .answers wrong. ITS OK.
1993 this changed (Chrysler) and started OBD1 ECU which we can scan easy. (innova 3140)

all this means is you must be smarter than the average bear.
are you>? got tools, meters. and all that? you will need it.
and a FSM book or login to alldata.com like we do.


if compression test pass, and vacuum at 19" idle and gunned throttle drops low fast and if you release throttle it goes why high fast 25inches>? and goes to 19inchs again, the engine is ok and cat not melted, all that in 5min work (vacuum tests) and vacuum not bouncing? 1 glance, no its steady vavcuum.
so I wave my magic wand, go, gee engine is ok.
i then check fuel pressure use a REAL gage.
it idle and throttle gunned. for spec pressures.

if all that pans out> whats next? well EFI is next,.
i check the MAP sensor voltage at 3 points.
key on, idle and gunned. for spec, readings. if not map is bad. or just clogged.
check all the other sensor by hand is next. and ill not attempt do post what ever mech ,knows here, "basics"
a volt meter , you can check them, ECT, IAT, etc.

my wild guess low fuel pressure. (BASE ON OK 1 MILE)
or FPR stuck wide open' (bad fuel pump reg)
or a bad wire to fuel pump, such that pump does not receive full 12vdc power.

here is map readings, ill post this because many books fail to show it.
http://www.fixkick.com/sensors/my-map.html#Jeep

if input to map is good, but output wrong, the map is DOA.

I want to know the halfway point between fargo nd and waubun mn


I recommend that you use Google maps. The distance between these 2 locations is 61 miles. You can drag the point to halfway. the half point then is about 1 mile when you are on 140 St. north (9), to 120 Ave ( 39). Diagonally it is almost at the junction of (27). and (112) which is a wild life refuge.

Map upgrade


Check the map menu to see if the new map is on the unit. At the main menu, press the tools button then the map icon. Then press the "map info" button. Look to see if the listing shows the new map that you just downloaded or if the original older map is still there. Make sure that the map is enabled by a check mark next to the map listing.

Is it my responsibilty to update the maps and traffic by calling you, or is this a feature that automatically happens with the garmin 1390lmt i just bought?


The updates are YOUR responsibility. Plug the unit into the computer and navigate to garmin.com, you can download maps and updates from their site.
There is no automatic update unless you navigate your browser to the Garmin site.

The distance for the trip in my favorite is wrong.


Sounds like you might have "off road" selected for your navigation preference. Shortest distance between 2 points is a straight line, or great circle for GPS units. As the crow flies will be shorter than a road route.

How does gps navigation work on htc touch diamond


Yeah, google maps does not navigate, it only shows your location, and shows directions, but I think it should follow you with the gps, I can't check at the moment as my gps is broken...

But I do know for sure that it will not tell you, with voice and text, when to turn and how much of a distance you have to make that turn, etc.
Navigation software is a must if you are planning to use it while driving..Google Maps is enough if you ask me though, but only if you have an unlimited data plan...otherwise get navigation software, which has the maps stored as data straight on your phone.

In the last week I have bought 2 tomtom ones. one was a 125 the other a 130. Both have given me the same problem. On arrival of my destination it is taking me anywhere from 1/8 mile to 1/2 mile away from...


First thing to check is make sure your maps are up to date. Run your device through TomTom Home and make the proper updates. 1/2 a mile away seems too far of a distance to be off by. I've taken trips on my TomTom and even other brands for that matter, and it is not unusual to be slightly off or announce the arrival a few hundred feet too early. If it is navigating you to the wrong street, you need to update your maps. The maps are very reliable on my device so use that as a starting point.
