New to the Jeep family and picked up a '68 CJ5 Willys Overland. Needs a little work. 225 dauntless odd fire, SM 420 4-spd, Model 20 Spicer transfer case, Saturn overdrive, Dana 44 Jeep Wagoneer axles, 538 gears and Warren hubs. Current issue is that after it warms up, it stalls out. Sit for a few minutes and you can start back up and go another 1/4 mile or so before repeating the issue. A couple of thoughts that may be causing this.... mechanical fuel pump going bad, coil collapsing, distributor issue?? It does have the Rochester 2 jet, single barrel carburetor on with stock manifod. Thanks in advance for feedback.
Hello all, I am having some issues that have become more perplexing than my knowledge has the answers for so hopefully someone can steer me in the right direction. I started off by trying to improve the rough idle my Jeep has had for years. I rebuilt the TBI, new O2 sensor, new ISA, TPS, coolant temp sensor, MAP sensor, spark plugs, distributor, plug wires, battery, fuel and air filter and installed new vacuum lines wherever I could (minus the hard lines which are difficult to find replacements for). After this, the Jeep was running great for a week or so, idling smooth and better throttle response. However, few days ago it started stalling and dying after I would put it into gear and apply any gas to it. I started digging through old forums here on this site and working through the EGR system and cleaning up grounds. Now it actually won’t fire up at all, or will for a second and then die. Before this it would idle fine for a while then choke out and die. I have an inkling that the progressive nature of this may help figure out what’s going on... I’m thinking fuel pump, EGR, something electrical; but I honestly am lost at this point. My mechanical knowledge is pretty novice and I just work on my Jeep in my garage as a hobby so I have no electrical testing tools. Any help or thoughts would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!
I am writing about my 1984 CJ7, 4.2 I6, manual trans with the Mopar fuel injection kit installed. The Jeep has been in storage for the last nine years and I am getting her going again. I had to do some engine work on it, but this is not the source of my problem. Since getting it running again (she runs well sitting still and accelerating under load) A peculiar problem has emerged. When I slow to come to a stop the engine dies and it is only when coming to a stop. Since it sat without running for so long, I have removed the fuel tank and cleaned, replace the sending unit and all hoses, installed a new filter, a new fuel pump, a new pressure regulator and an idle control air valve. The engine always restarts immediately. This problem didn't exist before having to put it into storage. I am at a loss as to what else to look into. Any ideas? Thanks Terry Utecht Littleton, CO
