Emmisions Legal?

91 Wrangler with a sick card! Has original carb and runs very poorly sputters backfires etc....! Moved from Nebraska (no emissions tests) to Colorado I now need to replace the carb and need to know what a good replacement would be that will pass the emissions tests in Colorado!

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

All about that unibody life.

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

First Jeep was an 1989 YJ, 6 cylinder 4.2L , 258. Nuttered and TeamRushed, Weber 38 DGES, Now, I'm venturing into the world of Grand Cherokees

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.

thanks, awesome info as usual mr. 90! still not sure what he is referencing as a stock 402 though?

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.
