1996 cherekee 4lt cold starting idles good warms up idles rough. exhaust fums stink. fueling up spark plugs .speedo289000klm'can any one help


is the problem only on a cold engine, hot or both?
is the hot engine reaching and holding 180F or more as it must?>
its running rich
and that is misfire.
lots of causes for rich. the tests are easy in shop with tools.
  1. a full tuneup.
  2. fuel pressure to high we, use a gauge. (FPR bad?)
  3. leaking injectors.
  4. ECT failure, scan it and must read 180f, hot, if at 180f hot.?
  5. this takes 5 min work on any scan tool (real)
  6. map hose clogged. or leaking. the Map sensor must not be blocked in any way to the plenum vacuum. or it will lie and it will run real bad.
  7. on a hot engine, the 02 sensors can fail, or is good and the exhaust cracks in the header do that. on mine it did 3 times.
cracks in the exh header, there must not he any leaks in that header (or bad gaskets)
or the 02 lies. , goes to 0volts and then engine runs rich as a piggy. (my scan tool shows this is seconds, 02 flat-lined at 0v.
all cars, with 02 do that. with that issue.
02 means oxygen sensor, the front one, not the rear one.

When I start my 1990 Talon TSI runs fine as it warms up runs real rich has no power and boost is very high. At low RPM around 2500 its fine after that all hell brakes lose bogs down and wont go ?


check the air cleaner and replace if necessary. ( low air volume = rich mixture ). Check/clean exhaust system as back pressure may be too high at high rpm's. Check fuel quality and do not use e-mix fuels.

97 wrangler 2.5 running rich


rich,101
this is a MAP , speed density EFI fueling system,,,,
not misfiring.
in no order,
  1. map reads, low all the time cause rich, (low means low vacuum that is real) the ECU sees that and adds huge fueling.
  2. fuel pressure way too high bad PFR.
  3. injector leaking i do an injector leakdown test, or balance test, like the book shows. (and has 3 causes)
  4. front 02 sensors struck lean , forced ECU to go RICH. Any exhaust (its air sucking in) leaks, cause the 02 to go nuts or stick at 0v all the time. and RICH will happen. unplug it , get better?
we use simple tools to find this.
is vacuum at 19 inches HG at idle.? hot? sealevel #s/
???? clean the map yet?

After my bike warms up good it gets real sluggish. It takes about 15 minutes for this to occur. When it happens I have to rev the bike real high or it will die out like its not getting or getting to much...


You didn't say what year or model your bike was but if it runs better when it's cold than it does when it's hot, this is an indication that it's running rich. Does the bike start up and idle without the use of the choke or very little use of the choke? If so, another indication that it's rich. Take the air filter cover and element off, leave the backing plate on, and take the bike for a ride. If it runs better, yet another indicator that it's running too rich. What type of carb is on the bike? This is unusual as most bikes,unless they've been rejetted, are jetted lean and have a nasty habit of spitting back from the carb.

Just installed a rebuilt carb. on a 1984 Dodge ram D-150, when coming to a stop it lopes and sometimes stalls, also when turning left it stutters and sometimes dies, worse when its been ran for a while.


You probably need to adjust the air/fuel mixture screws. Sounds like its running a little too rich. When you first start the engine, is the idle speed real low? If it is, then this is more evidence that its running rich

These are real common for having fuel leaks inside the intake causing them to run real rich. Have you checked for this or ever ran into it? Let me know. I can explain more about it.

1988 chevy camaro 2.8 liter multy port fuel injecton I recenly replaced the fuel pressure regulator, but the car is still running rich, idle surging, and misfire. I appriciate your help>


check you oxygen sensor. check the timing catilitic converters could be pluged now too. running rich can be a cause from that also an efect of running rich if theres another problem. check everything else before replacing the cats becausethey arnt cheap and if ist still running rich it will burn them out. also check the firing order if its real bad u may have one switched. that will cause the cats to glow and burn out.

What is the signs that a o2 sensor is going out?


If you have an engine code stored pertaining to the O2 sensors. Also if the vehicle is running real rich or real lean, maybe a sign of a bad O2 sensor.

Way too rich (pollution, horrible gas mileage and shortening the life of the engine by washing down the oil)...
Check carburettion.
Is this carburetted or injected?
