loosing power, fuel problem?

i have a 1993 wrangler yj with the 4.0 inline 6. i got it right around thanksgiving and have been having trouble with it ever since. the guy before me said he had just rebuilt the motor, i have decided this was total BS. it started having major problems with loosing power and was making wierd noises. being at college i didnt have all my tools so i took it to a shop to get an idea of what could be wrong and they said that it was a fuel problem and it needed a new fuel pump and the fuel rail cleaned. so i dropped the fuel tank and changed out the fuel pump, then i changed the fuel filter and cleaned the fuel rail. the problem got a lot better but was not completely right. i would drive it for about 10 to 15 miles and it starts cutting out and will eventually shut off, but i can start it back up and it will do the same thing all over again. so i changed the fuel regulator and cleanded the throttle body. got a little better but still is doing the samething. i am lost on what else it could be, anyone have any ideas?

I have had multiple problems with aftermarket fuel pumps. Got tired of pulling fuel tanks twice in the same month. New fuel pumps can crap out within a couple weeks without a new fuel filter and screen.

I now only use original equipment fuel pumps. They cost more but I only have to do them once.

When the CPS gave up on my '94 4.0 several years ago, it behaved the same way. It would restart when it cooled off and die after 10 or 15 minutes of running. Should show a code. I believe it is on the front of the engine.

Check your codes:
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/h...codes-1257145/

The crank postion sensor is on the rear of the blok at the top of the bell housing. It is a common issue with stalls. It doesn't always set a fault code.

Yes the CPS is on back of bell housing. Also before you plug the new one in, take a pair of pliers and gently squeeze the receiving end of the plug (female end) to make the little metal connectors inside fit the pins a little tighter. I chased an electrical issue with new cps for about 2 months before doing this and haven't had a problem with lost signal since. If it loses signal, it loses spark which causes drop offs and cut outs.

Junior, you want Some'n? Hushpuppies Daddy! We got no time for dat Crap! Dumb Sumb!+@#
