So I've been reading these threads and trying to diagnose an issue with my '95 XJ. I have an AX-15 (5 spd) tranny and when driving, I'll go to up shift and the Jeep backfires. I'm trying to explain it the best I can
So for instance, I'll shift at 3,000ish RPMs from 1st into 2nd and when it drops, it back fires/pops. I think that makes enough sense.
A few things I have thought about are:
#1; I have a bad or some bad injectors (of which I intend on replacing my plugs and wires in the next couple days and wondering if I should include some new injectors as well).
#2; I'm getting a misfire/hesitation and not burning all the fuel which is being sent through the exhaust and detonating in the CV or Muffler (weird, I know)
#3; bad plugs/wires which is leading to a miss somehow, or the Cam sensor is bad.
Also, I'll say that recently, the distributor & O2 sensor was replaced from an off-roading misadventure
The entire distributor assembly was replaced (shaft, cap, etc.)
One last thing as well....The engine does idle a little rougher than my previous '96 that I owned. I'm thinking that instead of diagnostics/preventative maintenance and singal repairs, I should just replace all of it; unless I am heading in the wrong direction?
Thanks for your help.
