Sputtering and backfiring could be from dirty jets on the carb. If I were you, I'd unbolt it and get to scrubbing.

what's a 402? I didn't think they manufactured 4.2's in 90, so just not sure you actually have a carb?

The AMC 6-258 was produced until the end of the 1990 model year, used in the YJ. It remained carburetted - but the 6-242 head and top end can be swapped on and the engine converted to fuel injection.

Only the YJ had the 6-258, 1987-1990. It overlapped those years with the 6-242 in the XJ and MJ.

He most likely means a 4.2 not a 402. YJs didn't get the 4.0 in tell 91, first year for a 4.0, HO, fuel injection and a obd1, They never put a 4.0 renix in a YJ.

I figured, just thought maybe somehow someone put it in after and he thought that was stock. Thanks again!

If you're dealing with emissions your best bet is to stay strictly stock. The running problems may or may not be related to the carb, you can get a replacement for about 180.

Using this as a guide, make sure everything is hooked up and set correctly.
